Driver Training Student Reviews

My instructor, Azin, was very patient and helpful during our driving lessons. I felt very prepared and confident before my road test, and passed with ease thanks to Azin’s help during our in-car lessons.
My driver instructor James was very helpful in all ways when it came to in car experience, he was very patient with me and taught me a lot of very important traits while driving. If anyone is looking for a driver instructor for themselves or child I would absolutely suggest james
Keigan M.
Azin was my instructor and he's the best! Super funny and nice, and I passed my test with zero points!
You better hope you get Azin as your instructor cause he does everything right he’s got good communication, he makes it a comfortable environment in the car and is all around a great instructor.
I drove with Steve. He was very helpful, patient and easy to talk to. He gave me lots of advice and practice in different areas, and he was chill and easy to talk to. I’d definitely recommend driving with him.
I had James as my instructor. He was always on time for my lessons and was really nice. He helped me a lot with my driving and now I am confident on the roads. And prepared me well for my road test
