Very worthwhile course. the in-class was very informative, and will help a great deal with insurance. The in-car portion is even more beneficial. I got Nick Scott as my instructor and he did a fantastic job. He made sure I was comfortable and ready for the test.He was sensitive on mistakes, but made sure you would remember as to fix them. As well, he made every lesson fun and shared some great stories while I learned. I would definitely recommend this program.

Took classes here back in '08 and have been driving with a clean record since (minus a couple of parking tickets :p). Great introductory class, great driving teacher, and great driving test instructor. Totally worth the money. Passed my test on my first try, too!
