Do not go to this school. Driving instructors do not do what they are suppose to do. For the test they are suppose to teach parallel parking and rear 2 way point turnabout. They only teach parallel parking and nothing else. When you call them back and complain they are saying that you are lying and that instructor is always right. Do not go there.
My instructor (who is also the manager of the business) made comments towards the girls that I found to be very derogatory and inappropriate. He would consistently let us out of class 30 minutes early, skipped over a unit, and spent a lot of the class time speaking with various students in their native languages, and when we did watch the videos, he fast forwarded through them 70% of the time. The office staff is also very rude, and will go out of their way to NOT help you. When my class ended, the instructor (also the manager) told me to go to the office to schedule my in-car sessions; the lady in the office told me that they were not allowed to schedule in-car sessions until August 1st and that I needed to call back (mind you, this was the second week of June). I tried calling back during business hours, and the lady that answered the phone did not even give me the chance to finish my sentence; she told me that I needed to call back during business hours to schedule my in-car session (this was at 2pm in the afternoon- they are scheduled to be open until 6pm). The only reason that I took my driving classes there was because my I Drive Smart driving certificate had expired, and Potomac Driving School was the cheapest in the area. Thankfully I had already taken driver's ed, otherwise I would not have learned the laws of the roads properly.
