Don't be misled by all the five star reviews of this "school." Take a look at Yelp and you'll see that I'm not alone in finding this school to be a scam. The classroom lessons are decent enough, but there are very few actual lessons behind the wheel of a car; the lessons that are scheduled are spaced very far apart; lessons are routinely cancelled with little or no notice (whereas if the student cancelled with less than 48 hours, they'd be fined), and so far the only lesson my child had was half the length it was supposed to be. It will be several months before they can schedule the full six lessons required for completing the class, because they so understaff. Dealing with customer service is a nightmare. Don't just take my word for it. Check out all the unhappy parents on Yelp.

I am a Freshman in high school and have started taking Driver's Ed at this school. This Driving Ed School has been Great and is Recommended by me for a number of reasons. I have heard from other friends that most Driving Programs just give out a lot of home work for you to do. Not this one though. My Driving Instructor's Name is Natalie and she makes sure that we all understand what's being taught and doesn't mind spending a little more time with anyone for them to succeed. She is very good at keeping us focused, adding a little humor to what's being taught and is an overall Great Teacher.

So I've signed up my son for your July class. I took him on one drive and he almost hit a parked car. Please help. I'm pretty scared to practice with him.

It was easy to sign up for. There were good choices for the times and dates of the classes. I'm excited to finally be Driving;-)

More about Defensive Driving School

Defensive Driving School is the oldest and most respected driving school in the Puget Sound area. We have been teaching teens and adults to drive since 1945. We specialize in teaching defensive driving techniques that will eliminate and reduce collisions and traffic tickets. Teen Classes- Five Week course, start when you're 15. Skid Monster- We have a safety course specifically designed to teach you how to manuever in a skid situation. Our specialized car has a set of castor wheels that simulate skids 4 times the speed. This enables us to train highway speeds while still staying in a parking lot. Court Ordered Classes- Our National Safety Coucil course fulfills level 1 & 2 driving court requirements in the State of Washington. Stick Training- We have several manual transmission training cars dedicated for these lessons. Our instructors are the most professional and qualified in the industry.
