I had been driving car back in India for a couple of years and I was a pretty good driver there. When I came to the US, I initially thought I already knew driving, so I do not need any lessons from an instructor. But thanks to a friend of mine who pressed me to take at least a couple of hours of lessons from a professional instructor of a driving school. On Google map, I found Forward Driving School nearest to my place. I called them. Mr Andre attended my call. He, very honestly, recommended taking driving lessons before 4 pm to avoid evening traffic and get the most value . I booked a slot from 1pm to 3 pm.
Exactly five minutes before the appointment, I got a call. Mr Long, an instructor at Forward Driving School, had arrived at my place with his car. After introduction, he told me not to assume I can drive on roads in the US. He gave me the keys and asked me to hit the road. Sitting next to me, he was giving me directions. He was making sure that I was following each of his instructions well. He was communicating very clearly and politely. He was catching my weaknesses very quickly, and immediately correcting my mistakes. Mr Long is a very professional instructor. In short, I found this class very useful and this school very good school.
The roads are very tricky at some places. On the day of the test, you are definitely going to be tested on these tricky spots. Besides, driving is a dangerous business if you are even a bit careless because one critical mistake can cost a lot. So to make driving a safe experience for you and for other people on road, lessons from a professional instructor are a must. I highly recommend Forward Driving school and Mr Long.
