My son, Steve, had a great experience with Maxwell's. His friend had an instructor who was patient so Maxwell's was recommended to us. I have to say, I am very pleased with the instructor, a man in his 40s, who had the patience of a saint with my son. Steve told me he learned some defensive driving techniques that were not taught in school.
The appointments are scheduled back to back, so Steve had the opportunity to drive with other students and make new friends. Steve passed his driver's test on the first try, which is a testament to the knowledge and patience of his instructor.
I recommend Maxwell's to my friends. It was a great investment in my son's driving future and a savings on my car insurance premium.

BEWARE!! I found Maxwell's on the internet. It seemed convenient enough...you go there and my daughter was able to take the eye test in their office. I was told day 1 would be an overview of general driving instruction, day 2 would be K-turns, parallel parking, navigating circles and any specialized skills, day 3 would be an review of all driving skills ending with a trip around the testing course and more parallel parking practice at the testing center. Here is what really happened....

Day 1...very elderly (very strange) gentleman picks her up at the house. He did not come to the door, just sat out front until we finally went out. He puts her in the car and they drive away. She had never been behind the wheel before so it was all new to her. She drove around the neighborhood and another close neighborhood nearby.

Day 2...He shows up with another young girl driving. My daughter's job is to drive her home to a town about 5 miles away. Then she drives around a little. The instructor kept asking her "you don't want to go on this road, do you?" It made her think that she should just say "no" because he scared her into thinking it was a danger or something. He told her he couldn't take her on any roads that she didn't agree to. Let me just say, not many kids know what road is what road by the numbers, ex..route 295, 42, etc. So then she has to drive to another town 25 minutes away to pick up the next student. Then that student drove her home. I wish I had known that unskilled people would be driving her around because I don't like that idea at all. I dont like the idea of my daughter driving any other kids either. NO SPECIALIZED INSTRUCTIONS TOOK PLACE ON THIS DAY!

Day 3-again a young girl drove to our house and my daughter had to drive her home. She drove around a little and then he took her on Route 295. She was doing 65 mph and the elderly instructor 'twitched' or something and hit the gear shift and shifted the car into LOW!!!! My daughter thought she was going to die. He says "oh that was clumsy of me". She was able to compose herself as she again drove 25 minutes to pick up the next student. Then that student drove her home. THERE WAS NO REVIEW OF THE TESTING COURSE OR PARKING OR ANYTHING!!! The instructor didn't even come to the door and tell us how she did or what she needed to practice....NOTHING!!!

So all in all, we paid $360.00 and my daughter didn't even know what a K-turn was when she finished. There was no parking instruction of any kind. She was never even taught how to hold the wheel when turning. All he told her was "don't lock your arms". Her driving was literally a danger after these lessons. We had to spend many hours driving in our neighborhood before allowing her to go out on the highways.

I called Maxwell's and informed them. They acted shocked. Steve told me that Ken the instructor had been with him for many years and NEVER had any complaints. I told him that I wanted at least a partial refund considering I didn't get what I paid for at all. It was all lies. He got nasty and told me he needed to speak to the instructor and would get back to me. He NEVER did.

I have told all of my daughter's friends not to use this company. It is a total RIP OFF!!!! He had the chance to make it right with us but instead he chose to be a jerk.

BEWARE!!!! You will NOT get anything that is advertised except the free eye exam.

Maxwell's Driving School was recommended by friends after I went to another school who just had my child drive.
The instructor we got was Jim. He observed how my child drove and demonstrated which habits to have to drive precisely and to be able to quickly respond to an unexpected emergency. The drawings and pictures that he had explained methods and decisions that are made in seconds.
My child said he was very patient. He taught the skills needed to pass the driving test. In addition he taught skills about how to change lanes and merge on high speed roads.
The cost was very competitive. After the lessons my child reminded me of some bad habits I had accumulated. I would recommend Maxwell's.

The address is correct, but the location on the map is incorrect. The lessons are started and ended at your home.

We researched other schools and contacted Maxwell's due to a strong recommendation from friends.

Maxwell's is deadicated to providing value for your money.

While Maxwell could charge for the vision exam that the do in their office, it is free. This makes signing up for the six hours of behind the wheel driving pleasant.

Unlike some other driving schools, getting the permit was done before any 6 hours time behind the wheel is started. The hour of effort that is required for Maxwell to get the behind the wheel driving permit for students younger than 17 was done before the driving instructor picked up my child.

We had a choice of three two hour session or two three hour sessions. Unlike some other schools we were able to schedule completion of the six hours within a short time period.

The instructor was interested in teaching skills that would be valuable in emergencies and not just being able to pass the New Jersey DMV driving test. He pointed out out several habits that needed to be developed to increase the ability of my child to respond to an emergency and probably avoid an accident. He had developed a notebook with a lot of drawings that helped my child greatly. The instructor exposed our child to heavy traffic, and taught techniques for safe merging into other lanes and onto the interstate that were not taught in my child's driving course in school.

My child found the application of physics very enlighting in how to adjust the car's speed when the road conditions changed and the effect of ignoring the laws of physics.

My child's friends told him that parallel parking was going to be very difficult. The instructor has drawings which described parallel parking and how to correct for various problems. He showed my child a procedure that allowed him to parrallel park easily.

The instructor also provided us with a summary of what he taught and what we could do to continue building our child's driving skills.

Pros: Friendly. Excellent Instruction with Drawings. Full Six Hours of Instruction.

Cons: Can not contact the office directly before noon or on the weekends.
