  • I would recommend this business

I had Steve as my in class instructor and he really knew how to make 3 hours go by quickly. I learned a lot and felt like the time was well spent, not to mention he’s very funny. I also had Chad as a substitute a couple times, they both did a great job of making sure we knew what was going on. I had multiple instructors in the car, but I always felt like a safer driver by the end of the session.

Customer Testimonials

Man was this class life changing. Since I was a young boy living in Germany, I wanted to drive cars. When I moved to America due to the Great German War, I finally became of age to learn to drive. I looked up companies near my house and lo and behold the class told me to “first learn to drive.” I was sold. Although $325 is enlightened to buy the new Airpods Pro, I decided to spend that money on learning to drive. And boy, did I drive. With Steve directing the class and instructing me in the car, I felt like that little boy wanting to drive cars, but this time safely. Steve, thank you for giving this little Asian German boy a chance at learning to drive, first of course. If I could select all the stars in the galaxy to give this class as a review score, I’d choose them all. Godspeed Steve, Godspeed.

At first when going into this program you think you don’t need it. After every class I was proved wrong. I have leaded so much that my parents could never teach me. Steve is a great instructor and I would definitely recommend thing for a new driver.

It was a awesome experience and I’m glad I could get my license with you guys!!! Chad was my original teacher but we also had an awesome sub as well.

Great program, lots of valuable information! The class time provides great information, that is used on drives heavily. Andrew is an excellent and very knowledgeable teacher! I was introduced to lots of new ways to make driving easier like reference points, and precision turns. Jeremy is a great instructor, and is very constructive with criticism. He is very helpful and a great instructor.

I learned a lot taking this course and now I feel more confident with my driving. Andrew is very interactive with the students which makes the 3 hour class fly by fast. I practice my driving with Jeremiah and he makes sure that we know how to drive in the safest way possible. Overall, I’ve had a great experience.

The driving instructor Jeremiah W gives good feedback for drivers. I’m a beginner driver and he’s really good at letting me know what I need to practice in a very nice and non-judgmental manner. I never feel stressed or overwhelmed while driving with him. He’s the Senior Driving Instructor so he’s very knowledgeable.
