AVOID AT ALL COSTS!! Very rude and unpleasant from the start-plus there is no feedback -no paperwork-they just fail you then walk away with no other words but tell you that you can take it again with them cheaper! $45 the first time and take it again for "only" $35! I should have read the reviews first online - All bad feedback left for this so called business! very disappointed. Don't waste your time or money! Very rude and not pleasant at all. BEWARE-you have been warned!
I would highly recommend this school for all students. I cannot tell you any instructor names, but I can tell you our overall experience has been really good. We first found this school 2 years ago when my son was struggling to pass the driving part to get his license. He has gone through the TIP training with another school and it was a totally disaster. One of the instructors pulled me aside and said that he was refusing to learn. He got his TIP and spent the next year and half in the car with his father and I trying to undo all the horrible teaching he received from the previous school. He then took the driving part of the test twice and could not get out of the parking lot. After another year goes by, I finally decided to find professional help as I was floundering on how to help him. That is when I found this school. He signed up for 1 - one hour class. In that one hour the instructor not only taught him more than the other school did, but they really worked to boost his confidence which had suffered during his learning process. He practiced what he was taught for about another month, then retook the test and passed. Because of this experience, I enrolled my daughter in their teen driving program. Again it has been such a different experience than the other school. Overall what I appreciate about the school is that the instructors TEACH how to drive and don't expect the students to already know how. It was well worth the money we paid for the school. Thank you to the teachers and instructors for doing such an amazing job - God bless you!
It was great!!! The people were nice and the service was fast. Arnie was the best examiner. He was polite, honest, and worked with you to help you! I recommend 100%!
I took a 1 hr class and the driving test at the institute a few days later. During the class, the instructor gave a lot of tips not only for the test but for general driving conditions. He also gave tips on clearing Part A - the three tests prior to road test. In reality, i had a major fear of parallel parking and wasn't good at it earlier. With the tips from the instructor and 15 min practice on the day, i cleared the test a couple of days without much problem
The test was conducted in an extremely professional manner. The instructor (different gentleman) was clear in his requirements and was happy to provide clarification if i didn't understand his queries.
Will recommend the school for folks in the nearby area. Check them out ...
The service here, from scheduling appointments, to friendliness is the worst that I have ever seen in a driving school. I made an appointment and had it confirmed, yet when I arrived near the vicinity of the driving school, I called to ask about their exact location, and was told that my appointment had not been made. They also refused to tell me where they were located, and only replied with "we don't have a spot for you". I had to reschedule my appointment for the next day, and in the end passed my road test.However, during the whole test, there was a feeling of negativity. My main complaint goes to the tall old road instructor as my whole experience was with him. I don't know about any of the other instructors. The scheduling problem did not end with me, as my friend who also took his road test here, had a appointment time issue as well. The road test supervisor is very strict, and a hard evaluator.
