I have to admit I was quite nervous starting out to drive. It wasn’t until I took lessons with this school and had Rob as my instructor, that I felt more confident and was prepared for my road test exam. Although he is very strict and will call you out if you do make a mistake, he will make you learn from your mistakes and make sure you will pass your exam. I am proud to say, I was able to pass my road test today with flying colors and it was all thanks to Rob. I 100% recommend him as an instructor if you are looking forward to not only learn how to pass the exam, but to learn how to drive in the real world.

Customer Testimonials

I had a great experience with Island driving. My instructor Danielle, was so patient and encouraging even when i didn't believe in myself. Sure enough i passed my road test on the first try! I highly recommend Island driving.


Denise is the absolute best. She is very patient with you and she makes sure that she helps you on areas where your not the strongest. She has a great personality as well. I was really comfortably with her. Also the staff at the Delafield office are amazing. I Passed My Test On The First Try!!! Thanks A Mil Denise.


Fantastic service! Debbie @Delafield is a godsend and helped me set up everything. Got my road test date, a long wait, but i passed and worth waiting every second for. Instructor and staff were phenomenal!


I am giving this driving school a 5 star because of their pleasant service and wonderful demeanor over the phone.


Awesome drivers Ed!! Big thanks to Danielle who was my instructor. She made sure I felt confident before my road test and when we were practicing. Thanks to her I passed my road test on the first try!! Definitely would recommend this school and especially Danielle as an instructor! Thanks again for helping me achieve my license.


Very helpful , I love my Instrutor Lenny he helped me a lot...made me feel comfortable driving and taught me a lot in little bit of time till my road test that I actually passed today ! Deff recommend this school


My driver instructor, Danielle, was great! If it wasn't for her, I definitely wouldn't have passed my road test on the first shot. She was very patient and understanding with me since I didn't have a background of driving. :) Thank you Danielle and island driving school !!!


Firstly, the 5 hour lesson was brilliant! Not a single minute was wasted; we only got useful info. You won't be falling asleep in this guy's class! Oh, and make sure you bring something to take notes with, and give them a look over on the night before the test day... trust me on this.
My instructor was Denise and oh boy, does this lady know her stuff! Now I'm a fast learner, sure, but 5 lessons was all it took for me to pass on my FIRST try. Now that is what I call results!
