Someone who made me feels comfortable and who was easy to talk to, friendly, patient and convenient. Learning was less stressful than I anticipated. However driving was more difficult than I thought. The instructor Brandon’s teaching methods were faultless. Couldn’t ask for a better instructor friendly and easy to get along with.

My original instructor was Jerry but he was too busy to take me back on therefore recommended one of his other instructors Brandon. I was happy with the prices of the lessons and they were convenient. I found the lessons a bit stressful but Brandon made then fun. Brandon’s teaching methods were very good and comforting. I can’t fault this service so I would recommend.
