I dont know if all driving schools are the same but I dont think I had a very good experience with this one. I decided to pick this school because it was the cheapest (or almost cheapest) that I could find searching on the internet for driving schools in my area. I cant remember but I think it was something like $185. There are seven different drivers in the school ( and ten different cars) but the one that Im familiar with, I dont feel that he really taughts anything. He just kind of sat there, sometimes saying "Change you lane and go right please." Sometimes his phone would go off and he would start chatting happily in another language. Once he actually said he needed to make a stop and drop something off for him (although I've heard from a girldfriend of mine that she had an experience where they had to pick up the guy's dry cleaning.) Overall, IM just glad that the whole experience is over and done with.
Oh by the way. One thing that I didnt really like though is that they would pick you up; from wherever you wanted, your house or the park. That was nice since you didnt have to waste your own gas and time to actually get there.
