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.
