A number of friends raved about this place, but I found it to be lacking. In the middle of taking the classroom instruction, they switched from 6 5-hour classes to 5 6-hour classes, but we still had to take 6 classes because they combined two -- one he had already had and one he hadn't. No mention of this change was given when we signed up -- if so, we would have waited to start the classes until the changeover happened. When I signed up, I asked how much driving experience the student was expected to have had before they did the actual driving and was told that there was no minimum experience necessary. The first instructor showed up (late) and was aghast that he'd had very little experience -- she said their first lesson normally involves highway driving. Had I known this I would have worked more with him -- as it was, they NEVER went out on the highway with him. He indicated that the first two lessons were mainly just driving around -- not much 'instruction' was given except "change lanes here", "turn left here" and, of course, parallel parking. The only tip to help him that was communicated to me was "practice". The last instructor was more helpful and we actually paid for one extra lesson with him. Wish we would have had him first and maybe the experience would have been better. I'm going to have to find another way to make sure he is a good safe driver. Big waste of money, in my opinion.
