We're a small driving school with five locations that are close to each-other geographically. We are able to give more personal attention to the students.
We limit the number of students in each class so that we can provide a quality classroom/road instruction experience.
We schedule everyone individually for their driving, students are not required to be partnered with other students for the driving.
We pick-up at home, school, work or other locations that the student requests for driving lessons.
The cost quoted for the course is always inclusive, it includes classroom work and driving lessons.
There is NEVER any hidden fees such as extra for fuel, surcharge, etc.
