After looking up a few other driving schools in the area, I found Academy Driving School to have competitive, reasonable rates and attentive customer service. They were able to easily accommodate my busy work schedule. The receptionist was great at scheduling my lessons and road test to ensure I had consistent practice before my test. I signed up for 10 classes, the road test, and 5 hour class, and ended up buying 5 more classes just to be on the safe side, and it was worth it - I took my road test today and passed on the first try!
Being new to driving, I started out really nervous and unfocused; John and his fellow instructors are super patient, knowledgeable, and dedicated and were able to teach me how to be a calmer, safe driver. They inform you respectfully of your mistakes and how to safely correct them, all while calming you down and teaching you useful driving tips.
Highly recommend them, and I'll be signing up to take advanced driving classes in the near future!
