      Thank you Budget Driving School/Brenda for all your help with working around our schedule in order to get the much needed practice for our son. Dylan passed his behind the wheel test on the 1st try. The Motor Vehicle Representative said Dylan did an Excellent Job! We are so happy and extremely grateful for the services you offer. Dylan couldn’t have done it without your driving sessions. We recommend your services to both Teenagers and Adults. Thank you?

      GREAT customer service! Budget Driving school staff were positive, encouraging, super helpful and great instructors. My daughter feels completely confident to pass her test. Scheduling was easy and they were always willing to accommodate.

      Absolutely love Budget Diving School. Great service and made my daughter completely comfortable during her behind the wheel drives.

      Budget Driving School of Imperial Valley (Brenda, Paul, Ashleigh), I dont even know why you are in the business if teaching students how to drive. You are offering a service to our community but you dont seem to care enough about the business. You cheat students out of their time in class, you cheat them of their time on behind the wheel lessons, you provide crappy customer service and on top of it you dont have an actual office location. Maybe you should just stick to preaching at your church CBC and not teaching drivers ED or just work harder at providing good service. Imsurpriced that the parents havent reported you to the DMV investigators, mostly everything you do is out of compliance.

      The instructor, Brenda wastes more than half of the 8 hour class on irrelevant stories.

      They always have the answering machine, but if you leave a message they get back asap. Awesome driving instructors. They really took the time necessary to help me learn. It's worth every dollar. Id recommend this school over any other. They really care about your safety! thanks Budget!

      they dont answer the phone but if you leave a message theyll call back or at least they did to me. i learned a lot in the traffic school and behind the wheel. brenda our traffic teacher was very funny, she taught us all the tricks the dmv gives in their written test, and gives lots of situations that youll come across while driving. my driving instructor was very helpful also, her name was cathy and i could ask her anything i wanted. personally i recommend this skewl

      My father is 85 years old. I thought his driving days were over, but thanks to Budget Driving School he is able to continue driving safely. Thank you for all the time and help you gave him.

      I have had 3 childeren go to Driving School. This schools instructors are the best! They really care about the safety of our children. Parents need to take more time to find out what it's all about. If you care about your child's safety then I strongly suggest Budget Driving School in El Centro for their Drivers Ed and Benind the wheel training.
