After discussing this matter further with the school, they are working with me and my daughter on a plan and removed the reinstatement fee for me.

The instructors do not spend enough time on the road with the students training them for their final driving test. They simply told the student where to drive and did not provide feedback or helpful instruction. They rely on the parent to provide instruction and practice. Every lesson there would be a different instructor which is very unappropriate and unhelpful. Teens strive on routine and consistency.
The people working at the office were not helpful nor could place my child with consistent instructors. Shockingly, most students do not pass the driving test and must return and pay an additional fee of something like $160 over and above the $460 already paid for the class.

Business Response:

We're sorry that we did not meet your expectations for your teen's driving course. While most of our students consistently have the same instructor for driving lessons, sometimes due to scheduling conflicts or illness it is not possible. Each driving lesson is designed to have the instructor teach a skill and practice it a few times. Then the parent must follow up with home practice to make sure the skill has been learned. We highly encourage parents to sit in the back seat during one or more driving lessons so that the student/teacher/parent can all work together to ensure student success. When a student doesn't get home practice or needs additional help from an instructor then they are able to sign up for extra lessons, which are currently $60 per hour. Most of our students pass the driving test without purchasing extra lessons. Please call or email our office manager specifics regarding your student and their teachers. It sounds like there was a communication break down and we'd like to do what we can to address that situation.

My daughter really liked her instructor Kate. Kate was very patient with her and I'm glad I didn't have to teach her, I'm not sure I would have made it:-) My daughter loves driving now and isn't afraid of traffic anymore. She passed her road test with a 98%, I couldn't be more thrilled!!
