Folks, This is a pathetic driving school and my advise is to find some other and NOT go with this one. I'm very disappointed by the unprofessional behavior of the owner Tim. Here's my story... I have >15 yrs of driving experience (India) and am pretty good at it. I have recently moved to the US and wanted to get a state drivers license. After getting my learners permit, I wanted to take a couple of professional driving lessons so that I can get accustomed to the little details of driving in the US and also get some useful tips. This is when I approached Rogers Driving School. I took two driving classes and they went well, perhaps because they weren't teaching me how to drive. The instructor never told me to use indicators while parallel parking or getting out of one. As a result, I didn't switch on the indicators during the test and the examiner failed. My test center was Kittanning and I had also scheduled a 3hr driving window with the same school for $172, but after driving half way down to the center...the instructor (apparently the most experienced one...Bob) refused to take me there because it was too far. Apparently, Tim (the owner) had informed him that the test center was New Kensington. Luckily, I had a few colleagues who jumped in to save my day and took me to the test center and eventually I failed. Whats worse is...the next day I called Tim (the owner) to speak about what happened and he responded in a very unprofessional manner.
