      Beware

      While most of the instructors are nice. There are things about Bairs I do not like. First, Each time a student arrives to drive it is a different car and a different instructor. I have been driving 43 years and when I get in to a different car it takes me a while to get use to it. Can you image putting an inexperienced teenager in a different car every time to drive?? My child had one instructor who was totally out of bounds with the things he said, and really set my child back in his confidence. If you choose Bairs I would suggest that you talk with all of the driving instructors and pick the one best suited for your child and request this instructor and their car (the driving instructors use their personal cars).

      Terrible Nancy

      Nancy was horrid, talking on the phone and putting me in bad situations. She wrote down things we didn't even do. The only good review this site has is Felicia who is 40% the owner. Pathetic company.

      Jim has got to be one of the nicest and knowledgable instructor's in Maine. I was very happy my son picked Bair's for his school.

      I would like to ask people to call with any complaints.I would the chance to fix any troubles. We do teach parallel parking it is up to the parents to practice this. If they do not practice often they will forget. We keep very detailed records a parent can come look at these anytime. We write down what we teach every lesson can show how many times they did parking where they went how many miles please take an interest. thank you

      My daughter would like to thank you for not teaching her how to parallel park whatsoever. I guess you care more about getting your money than teaching the students properly. Buyer beware of this "establishment"

      Concerned

      Parents the State of Maine regulates driving schools and they are required to get the full 30 hours of class room time and driving time if you do NOT get this call the State of Maine BMV to complain!!!! The student will not get in trouble but Bair's will if he was dishonest with his record keeping!

      What a Joke

      One of your cars almost hit me when they ran a red light. I caught up to see who was driving and low and behold it was a teacher driving the car! Real professional Bairs!

      Was not impressed. Did teach my son anything! I had to start at step one since they didn't show him even the basics. Don't go anywhere but there.

      Late for driving appointments... rude and instructor spent more time in the parking lot talking on the cell phone than on the road. I won't be sending my other kids here that's for sure.

      Disappointed

      This school is far from professional. School should not be in their name for no learning takes place, this is a joke for a so called school. Do yourself and your kids a favor find a better school!

      I would NOT recommend this dirty school to ANYONE, not even my worst enemy!! The office staff and owner are unorganized, rude (actually rude isn't the appropriate word for them), vicious people with no care in the world other than their money. I seen them first hand getting nasty with children about payments as they stood in line while class was going. (they couldn't have the children come in during break?) When trying to reach them, there is nothing but problems with their answering service and once you actually get a hold of the secretary, they say you never called or haven't called as much as you know you have, then end the conversation with a sarcastic laugh. Then don't ever miss a class for an important reason (such as a death in the family) because they will make sure you cant make it up unless you pay the $80 extra for a private lesson. I wish I had never taken my child here, and I will NEVER take my other children there.
