      We appreciate your program and the investment you make in helping our children become better drivers. This is our third child to take part in the Road to Excellence Program, and we think it is perfect!

      Loved it. Instructors were caring and qualified. They take your kids where you don't want to take them at their unexperienced level. My second child is now in the program. There is no comparison with simulation...they need reality.

      Poor school, seems like all they cared about was getting payment. I was even asked ton pay in cash! The woman in the office along with the man didn't seem to know what they were talking about. There was no "manager" available I was told. The vehicles used are all old cars and looked to be dirty, missing hubcaps, sloppy. I think there are better alternatives out there.

      New Changes

      New staff with much better customer service. You'll like the changes and see the difference in you child's ability to drive safely. Practice with your kids, it's a great way to spend time together. Like sports or a musical instrument, practice, practice, practice. Thank you for your trust in the Institute for Driver's Safety.

      They have recently moved to a new building. The facility is excellent. My son did not want to go to class but afterwards he said it was good and the instructor was sick? I guess that means good. He is looking forward to his first drive.

      Very poor school. I wasted my money. Instructor was loud, didnt really know what he was talking about. He ate his lunch and food infront of my daughter. The car they were in was unsafe according to my daughter. I will never use this school again.

      I had attended this school and its really fun because the instructor is/was an acctual cop or law agent of some sort. I got what i needed to pass my drivers test and permit test there and its just a wonderful school for anyone to go to for driving.

      My daughter attending this school and loved it. The classroom instructor and behind the wheel instructor was excellent. They joked with her and made her feel comfortable. Her last sesson behind the wheel he hard her drive to a drive-thru and turned the radio up to see how she drove during distractionsl She had only been behind the wheel once before the class and they had taken her on 4 major freeways, the airport and downtown on all those one way streets. It was get to have someone else with her and correct her other than parents. This is a great place and I'm getting ready to enroll my son.

      My son was doubtful at first, but when he came to the class, he had a different outlook, he was correct my dirving skills, he also went driving with the intructors, which were very professional, gave great feedback. I recommend this program to anyone. Also the do the premit testing to the driving test.

      This school is so helpful for the student. My daughter got her permit at the end of the first class. The instructors are so helpful. The 2 driving sessions were what gave her the confidence to get her license.

      Being an inexperience driver, I am grateful that I enrolled @IDS because I've learned a lot. Mr. Royer is very courteous and professionalism. Thank you, Sir, for giving the tips and advices. This driving school, with their instructors, you feel comfortable, fun and exciting through driving the road with safety and awareness.

      I've sent 2 kids through there program and we are very satisfied. Very professional instructors with a solid program. Really like the fact that they give the actual written and driving test. Saves a lot of hassel at DMV. Highly recommend. I've sent several friends there and they are also all satisfied.
