Editorial review from Citysearch 10/11/2013

Dealing with the ""school"" has been a joke. My daughter is out right now driving with her dad to her lesson and she has called me three times because though her appointment was at 7:00 a.m., there is no one at either location; Peabody or Danvers! I've left messages but of course there's no one there and there's no one getting back to me. Over this past summer, while she was trying to finish up her hours, i left countless messages asking for a call so i could finish booking her appointment times. My first phone call to them was in June and they got back to me in the middle of July!!!! I called at least a dozen times with no one calling me back. When the finally did and I expressed how angry i was there, their response was ""oh, really, i'm sorry. I refused to let them off the phone until we had every last appointment booked. Do yourself a favor and go ANYWHERE else other than Tanners!!!! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/26/2012

I'm currently with Tanner City and the whole experience is horrific. Yes the classroom is not great but tolerable. But the reason I am writing this review is because of my road lesson today. I have never been so disrespected in my life. I dont expect a perfect instructor, but atleast a polite one. My instructor was extremely rude beyond belief, and was very impatient with me. She kept rolling her eyes and had the nerve to have me drive her to 7-eleven so she could get herself chips and eat them in the car(which isn't really a big deal to me but she took 10 minutes, not exaggerating). I was nervous enough as it was, and raising her voice and sighing every minute was not helping. She actually pulled me over and asked me if I had ever even learned anything in driving school. Not all of the instructors are like that, the two others I had were very nice and actually taught me how to drive. But before you send your child here, actually, just don't bother. From the person that actually has to GO HERE, take it from me that it is not worth it at all. Go somewhere else. more

Horrific Experience 9/13/2011

I have never signed up to be a member to comment on anything, but I want to warn other parents and their teens to avoid Tanner City! I had heard that the instruction was less comprehensive than other options, but agreed to allow my child to attend at Tanner City to join the friends. more

Driving School Helpful Hints 5/23/2007

In response to the writers how are disatisfied with their childs driving school. I would like say we are not all the same. The kind of information I try to get out to parents is to check out the school first even if that means going to the location to see it for yourself. Ask to see the lesson plan and ext. In my 25 plus years of teaching I have seen and heard many horrier stories. As the owner of American Driving Academy Inc. I would like to say don't give up us but it dose take a little investigation on your part . David more

kind of a week of babysitting it seems 8/4/2006

After a week of classroom, my son had his road hours. During his ""hour"" he stopped for the driving teacher to yell at her son as she saw him out on his bike, picked up a pizza for her dinner, told us nightly of her personal calls while he was driving..and maybe a couple of times actually drove an hour. My son had ha his permit for 1 1/2 yrs and the first one had been ruined in the wash so he laminated the 2nd. Noone said anything about that at all. the day before he was to go on the road test we went to prepay his licence and all the man at the dmv said was ""good luck with that"" if he said then - you need to get a new one..the officer wont be able to stamp this or whatever..I would have!! no, they pick him up at 8 a.m and i watch as my son is ridiculed in front of a car of kids about the laminate and after 10 minutes at least he walks back in the house..can't do it today. This wasn't his fault. i think for the amount of money it costs for this dumpy room and pleasant babysitters, they would at least check everything for him before this day and help him to have things in order? I don't know alternatives, and maybe they're all the same, but if that's true~We should really be looking into how our children are learning about one of the most important steps they take.getting behind a wheel! In my case my child has driven with his permit for over a year and had extensive experience in all conditions and all roads, but i was surprised to see that most of the others were just at the age and jumping right into this school with little or no experience in driving . With nothing more than what Tanner gives, The road is a scarey place . Cons: the room where they spend the week in class is a mess and smells more
