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!
Ask Derek Brown Anything
I went to Derek Brown's to help me for my Class 5 Beginner's Road test. The inclass instructors prepare you well for the inclass exam. My driving instructor, Teri, is a great teacher.
I strongly suggest that all new drivers looking to get there drivers license should go here! The instructors are great here, the explain driving techniques and will show you for better understanding if needed. If you have a question they will answer and explain why that would or would not be. They help me with learning new techniques for parking that I was struggling with. They are very nice, fun, and DO not make the driving stressful while you are driving with the instructors. 5 stares and 100% would use this academy again for something like a licenses upgrade.
