Michal Michalkow, Founder and Owner
Michal has served the public as an EMT since 2002 in both New York and Colorado. His career has provided him with extensive knowledge, experience, and skills in operating emergency vehicles under all kinds of circumstances and in all types of weather.
As an EMT, Michal witnessed the aftermath of hundreds of vehicle accidents and realized that many could have been prevented with the right knowledge and skills. He decided to combine his two passions, saving lives and driving, and founded First Gear Driving Academy in 2013.
His goal is to keep all drivers safer by preventing dangerous situations on the road.
Michal is certified as a SkidCar instructor by the Adams County Sheriff's Department.
