When I did my six hours I went with Frank and he was rude and inconsiderate yelling at me for going to fast when I had just got in the drivers seat of a car for the first time in my life. For my pre test refresher course I went with the other guy who wasn't much bette. When we did the parallel parking practice he just expected me to know things and when I made an error he yelled like I am an experienced drover that should know this, but I have never parallel parked other than for the six hours like most other kids. He was also very vague with his directions and yelled at you for not understanding exactly what he meant and where he wanted you to go. I pulled up to a stop sign where i couldnt go straight and he started shouting out me for just sitting there but he hadn't told me a direction to go yet but he was very sure he did. And then on the way there I was going 2 mph over the speed limit and he got very angry and yelled saying I was going to fast and I should know better. The cheaper price than the other schools was not worth the mental stress anger they caused.
If you are somewhat confident in your driving skills before taking your 6 hours, I would recommend this school as it good on your wallet. My first time behind the wheel went well, and I did not experience any of the yelling and screaming that I have seen being described in other reviews. I learned things such as the K-turn and parallel parking with ease with my instructor, and driving was a breeze. The reason I am giving three stars is because of some lack of professionalism. My instructor used language frequently and would sing and turn up the radio often which was a little distracting. Other than this however, I have no complaints and I had a good experience with this driving school.
Not a student of this school but just nearly got into an accident with one of the instructors because he was on the phone and swerved into my lane.
Do yourself a favor and avoid this school. We chose it, because it was $50 less than other schools in the area, but the cheaper price was not worth it. We should have known better.
We picked 2x3h option and the instructor didn't show up for the second class (which happened to be on Sunday at 10am). We didn't get any calls about cancellation, so we kept calling the school, but the calls went straight to voicemail. Finally, they called us back at 6pm (8 hours AFTER the scheduled appointment), to yell at us that we didn't pick up the phone (we checked all the phones in the house, nobody called us). Apparently, the instructor wanted to cancel the lesson, because she was scared of driving in the rain. Yes, that's right. The instructor was afraid of driving in the rain (it rained for 5 minutes in the morning and then it barely drizzled).
That should tell you all you need to know about the quality of the driving education provided by this school and about the level of professionalism (or rather lack of it) that they display.
Worst driving school. The instructor James is an extremely rude and bad tempered old man. Please don't send your kids here or go here yourself. I changed driving schools and heard of kids like me who were insulted and even plucked at. I was yelled at by him the majority of my lesson and it made me very scared to drive. Never again
