Driver's Ed is divided into two portions: classroom and drive times. Rhodes on Brookhollow does a fine job with the classroom portion but it is the drive times that they do not treat their customers well.
You need 7 hours of observation and 7 hours of actual driving. They USED to put two kids in a car and each kid got an hour of observation and an hour of driving. The other Rhodes' schools do this, but NOT Brookhollow. Now, the Brookhollow location places THREE kids in that two hour slot so guess what happens? Instead of receiving the one hour and one hour, they now receive FORTY MINUTES of driving and ONE HOUR AND TWENTY MINUTES of observation. So observation hours are completed in no time at all! Great huh? But DRIVE TIMES take FOREVER to complete.
So your child will have to come in for the TWO HOUR times slot and only need to be there for FORTY MINUTES. So they are at forced to sit through an hour and twenty minutes of somebody else driving when they do not need to be there. It is so unfair. So wrong.
On top of this, you can only schedule a time slot every EIGHT DAYS. And you can only schedule drives times on Mondays from 11:00 AM until 11:15 AM and on Wednesdays from 6:00 PM until 6:15 PM. IT IS MADDENING!!!!! They will tell you that the scheduling is actually for two hours on each of these days but I have been at this long enough to know that is not true at all. either you are available for that 15 minute window or you can forget another week of trying to schedule something.
It is a poorly poorly run business. They simply do not care that they have made it so difficult for their customers. They waste precious time for these kids when they could be doing homework or other important things.
I am so UNHAPPY with Rhodes Driving School at Brookhollow. We signed up months ago, my son finished the class work, got his permit and now we can NEVER get drive time scheduled. They use a website called schedule2drive which updates once a day, three times a week. I have not once been successful scheduling a drive because they are always all full. I have called the school and they say there is nothing they can do. I have had two previous children go through drivers ed at different schools and scheduling a drive was never a problem. I am ready to pay a second time at a different school just so my son can get his drive time.
