Testimonials

  • "Easy and Enjoyable!"

    The Next Street made my drivers education experience not only easy but enjoyable. My instructor Kevin Wilson has a great personality and taught us everything we needed to know while making the classes fun. I would recommend the Next Street to anyone.

  • "Convenient Locations and Class Times"

    Driver's Ed is a very helpful program in preparing for my license. It reviews prior knowledge about the road while also introducing new laws and information I was previously unaware of. My program at Wolcott High School is convenient because of its location and timing directly after school.

    - - May 02, 2017

  • "A Very Fun Learning Experience"

    The Next Street was a very fun learning experience for me Kevin taught us the book smarts of learning how to drive, and what to do in an emergency, and that's why I love The Next Street. . It was recommended to me by many friends. 10/10 would recommend.

Driving Student Testimonials

"Great school"

5/5 Stars

Great school. I did my 8 hours in 1 sitting, a 2 hour private lesson, and my test at the school and passed! They prepare you and tell you everything you need to do in order to pass. The videos are very helpful too.

"Fun! Sara is an outstanding teacher."

5/5 Stars

Fun! Sara is an outstanding teacher. I learned so much and I love like how I could sign up for my driving test right after I got my permit. Also, the 4 hour classes go by surprisingly quickly and we did a lot of fun games.
