I'd rather give this place 0 stars. It is a complete scam. Pay them $50--cash up front. I wondered about that but now I know. It's because you can't stop payment on cash like you can a credit card or check, when you find out you've been scammed. Ask for proof of their pass/fail percentages. No one passes the driver's test the first time with them. Why would they pass you after you pay the first $50? They assure you that you are sooooo close to passing and if you pay them another $50 and come back in 7 days you can try again. Uh-huh. They set students up to fail by telling them to turn on roads that are difficult for experienced drivers to find. They tell you that you rolled into the pedestrian crossing at a stop sign even if you didn't. Then they tell you that is a 'ticketable' offense so you fail.
I payed 90 dollars for use of their vehicle for my road test, then was not allowed to drive it to see how the car handles prior to my test. The owner was scary and raised his voice and criticized me the whole time I was driving. I have a nervous disorder and he made me have a panic attack in the middle of my test!
The test itself was fairly easy, however if you have a hard time driving while people are yelling at you, this place is not for you.
Overall, this place is for the iron willed, and completely sound of mind ONLY!
