Classes Offered: Driving Instruction
So I came to safe driving school after I was fed up with my old instructor who constantly yelled at me and didn't really teach me anything. It was the best decision I ever made. One of my biggest problems was driving straight, and after just ONE lesson with Brandon, I mastered it. He was a great instructor, always on time, never ever yelled at me, and did everything he could to help me. I passed on my first try! However, there is a down side to this school. It's SO HARD to get an appointment here. You have to call a week in advance, and you get called the day before with a time that may or may not work for you. Basically, you need that whole day open. The receptionist forgot to call me twice, and to make matters worse, it was my last practice before the test! I called and asked if I was still going driving that day and she said that there were no more available spots left. How do I NOT get an appointment if I called A WEEK AGO?!!
And even worse, I SPECIFICALLY requested the car that I used to practice with for the test and was assured that I would get it. But I show up at the driving center and its a completely new car that I have NEVER driven before!
The one good thing was that Abraham showed me everything that I needed to know and was super nice. I was still upset that I didn't get the car that I practiced with, but I still passed.
To conclude my experience, these instructors are great, (I would request Brandon) they know what they're talking about. But good luck making an appointment
Hi, this school teaches you well. I had both instructors, Bill and Abraham--they nearly teach the same exact way and were both great instructors. I drove with Bill more often and he was patient and super nice. I'm giving three stars because the receptionist that makes the schedule annoyed the hell out of me, my name failed to be on the schedule every other week--which is ridiculous.I could've been gotten my license a long time ago, but their organization sucked and maybe I'm the only one who experienced this. I also dislike when I called days prior to book an appointment they'll call me a day before my appointment to tell me the time my driver will pick me up, and this is when i find out my name will never be on the schedule. I literally could've had about 10 lessons by now, but since my name always mysteriously got off the schedule i only had four lessons. I'm usually not the type of person to write a review online, but I had to say something. I blame myself for being stupid and not changing schools a long time ago, but good luck if you choose to use Safe Driving School services.
What can I not say about this school? Bill my instructor was the best. He was patient with me and made me feel confident when driving. He taught me how to drive and prepared me for the exam and I passed the exam at my first try. This school is the best, there is no other school that I would recommend than Safe Driving School. I loved everything about the school from Alicia the scheduler who was always nice and always available to answer any questions and she set up my exam for me. I love the price, $70 was a great price for all that I have learned. Last but not least I love Bill. I would recommend this school and Bill to everyone who wants to learn how to drive, I'm carrying their business cards to pass out to my friends and family. Thank you Alicia!!! Thank you Bill, love you man!!!
These people are incredible. They actually teach you how to drive, not just tell you (like how almost all the others do) They are incredibly friendly and kind, and they dont bug you when you make a mistake, and when you do make one they will teach you how to correct it instead of nagging at you. Their cars are also amazing. They dont have the crap 1990 cars that you see with everyone else, they drive new cars!
