In recent years, Driving schools in Chinas cities has maintained an annual growth rate about 7.6%. As a result, there is shortage of land for driver education within urban areas. How to evaluate the scale of driving school scientifically is a problem. Given the fact that the current calculation method of the total land area for driving school in China is low in practical value and easy to lead land waste. Based on the green development concept of saving energy and land, and on the law concerning Chinas driving examination. This paper considers the area of single training item (αi), the number of training tasks (ni), the length of the corresponding training vehicle (βi), the width of the buffer sections (δi), and the number of buffer sections (mi), these five parameters to establish an estimating model, and examine the land area threshold value of driving schools at all levels. Finally, we selected 100 built driving schools at each level, a total of 300 samples, to prove the scientificity and rationality of the estimating model.
