Driving Student Testimonials

"Good customer service!"

4/5 Stars
Good customer service! Thanks

"He made the classses fun and didn't just read straight out of a book"

5/5 Stars
Kevin Wilson was my instructor for my last few classes he was a really great instructor and made everything understandable and used real life connections and instances so the students could see how everything really relates to actual driving situations in the real world and not just made up ones out of the books we have to learn from. He made the classses fun and didn't just read straight out of a book or make us watch videos for 4 hours like some of my previous teachers did. I'm definitely going to try to schedule my on road lessons with him. Overall my experience at the next street was great but I once had an instructor who forgot her key and made us start class late outside the building when it was like 30° and then tried to make us stay longer without telling us because she forgot her key. I would recommend the next street to friends.

"Kevin Wilson is a great instructor"

5/5 Stars
Kevin Wilson is a great instructor, he's funny and relatable while still making sure we learn the material. He offers a lot of personal stories to go along with the lesson and makes sure to make the classes fun and engaging.

"A very good school!"

5/5 Stars
A very good school! Especially the teacher Kevin Wilson, he was a great kind teacher! He was lots of help and I'm so happy that I had him.
