This was the first driving school that I got lessons at. It was recommended to me by my sister. I had Mr. Charles (so did she and her friend). He called and changed my appointment both times though. The first lesson went well and Mr Charles is a good teacher. However on the second lesson he showed up 15 minuter early and I wasn't ready so he sat and spoke to my mom. About 1/2 and hour into his lesson he started playing Jehovah witness testimonials and asking me if my father was a preacher. I later found out that while he was waiting for me he asked my mother "What church do you go to?" My mother told him we don't go to church. So I didn't understand why he was asking me if my father was a preacher. He then proceeded to rewind certain parts back on the tape he was listening to and raised the volume. I didn't protest because I wasn't sure if he was a zealot or not. But I didn't pay $140 dollars to learn about Jehovah. I paid to learn how to drive and I thought that was unprofessional. He doesn't have to play radio music as I didn't ask him to turn the radio on. But there is classical music and Instrumental music out there. I also found out from my sister and a friend of hers who also had Mr. Charles that he played Jehovah Witness testimonials. I will repeat that Mr. Charles is a good teacher for the most part. He was patient and he didn't talk to me like I was an idiot. But after the second lesson I ended up trying another driving school. Pushing ones religious beliefs on other people especially when you are in what should be a professional setting is never cool. If I want to learn about any religion I can check online, go to their place of worship or talk to my family members.

I was looking for a driving school for my twin daughters. They call me the investigator mom because I do a lot research before I do business with anyone. My husband is a Philadelphia police officer. I wanted to know who the police and firemen use to teach their children how to drive and I found out it is Pennsylvania Driving School because half of their staff are retired Philadelphia police officers. I called up and I spoke to a gentleman and he was very professional on the phone. He answered all of my questions. I made an appointment and I wanted a retired police officer. He told me that Rick and George are retired police officers and they set me up with Rick. One of my daughters went out with Rick and the other daughter went out with George. One daughter needed three lessons and the other needed four lessons. I was very happy with their professionalism. They taught them how to change lanes properly, the reasons why you don t tailgate, how to parallel park , took them to the test site and showed them the course. They both passed the first time . I received a six hour certificate for both of them and I am saving $300 a year on my insurance. With my savings the lessons all most paid for itself. I want to thank them for teaching my daughters how to be safe, defensive drivers. Thank you Rick and George you were both wonderful.
Al the specialist is a very good instructor. I passed my test on the first try, and I only needed two lessons. Before him I was very inexperienced and was afraid to drive. Now i am confident and can manage the roads with a lot of ease. He teaches you to be a good driver as well as a safe driver. Most importantly he makes you feel comfortable by making you laugh and by being patient with you as you learn. He finds out what driving skills you struggle with the most and he doesn’t stop helping you until you get it right. As I drove for the driving test I kept thinking of everything Al told me to do, and at the end, the examiner told me that I did a very good job.
