      My son went through DTC when it was offered at his high school. The classroom instruction was very thorough and convenient. The driving/observation hours that followed were also well run and always prompt. When he was ready to arrange for his road test, DTC had apparently been sold to AAA driving in Westwood (they were beyond rude, but I digress). I ended up having to arrange the test through the registry's online system which is greatly flawed, but we got it done. He passed his test and is now a very responsible driver. I did manage to get the last laugh from a very inconvenient situation... DTC failed to collect the third and final installment of the cost of the class. I view it as a $250 rebate for my inconvenience.

      Sent my son here because the school had donated a discount to the Xaverian golf tournament fundraiser. My son completed the course, however when asked about setting up a time for the driving test with RMV, I was told that they probably couldn't do it because the instructor was retiring. Finally was able to get an appointment on my own with RMV but when I went to pay after my son passed his test, I was told I'd have to pay for 2 other appointments that were missed! When I questioned further, I was told the appointments were made in Milford (we live in Kingston & go to the Plymouth office) Clearly these appointments, that we were NEVER informed about, were made by the DTC!!! I'll be fighting to get my money back from them!!! Outrageous!!!

      Parent got fleeced

      Do NOT consider this school - they appear to be out of business. They took our $500 for the driving portion of the course, and and we got no driving hours. They won't return calls, and the storefront is being re-rented. Can I enter 0 stars? Since they won't take your calls, you probably can't sign up. But if they ever come back; consider yourself warned.

      This is an exceptionally great school! I has two teens complete the course and everything went very well. The instructors were always on time and were very professional. I will definitely recommend this school to everyone.

      Ready to sign u up take your money then mr towle tells u he is booked for the next couple of months and then tells u he only has two instructors He is terrible at keeping his word and he makes fun of his students .To top it all off, he is the most rude person I have ever met. he never says anything positive .Even when I do everything the way he tells me, Towle still finds something wrong with my driving. To him, my parents' opinions are wrong as well. If I were you, I would ask for my money back.

      DTC is an excellent driving school and my experience was very positive. The instructor, Mr.Towle was very helpful and professional. I really enjoyed the driving lessons. I would highly recommend this school to everyone. My lesssons were completed within one month and I easily passed my license test due to Mr. Towle. It was a great experience! ! !

      frustrated student

      So far, Mike Towle had scheduled some of my lessons tightly together, then spread the rest out over the course of weeks. He is terrible at keeping up on his payments, accusing me of not paying for a lesson that I had to cancel when I really rescheduled it! To top it all off, he is the most rude person I have ever met. Towle is the one type of person in the world that I dislike: he never says anything positive, brags about his expensive vacations, and is easily over 250 pounds. Even when I do everything the way he tells me, Towle still finds something wrong with my driving. To him, my parents' opinions are wrong as well. If I were you, I wouldn't take this course, as it is disorganized and the main instructor is the most rude man I have ever met.

      a disappointed parent

      The driving center is quick to sign you up for the class and to take your money for the driving lessons, but scheduling the lessons is another story. It took two months from the first phone call to the first driving lesson. The instructor left in the middle of the lessons which pushed things back further. No notification about the parent course until we called. Requests for return phone calls from Mr. Towle went unanswered. Poor customer service and attitudes to match!

      Towards the bottom of this page, there are multiple "5 star" reviews, by the same person or people (my guess is by a DTC employee). If you notice the multiple exclamation points ("! ! !") and the clear and intentional spelling and grammatical errors, it's pretty obvious those review's were written with the intent to bring the rating up. The comments are written by: Nicole, Joseph, Joe, Nathan M., Ralph, Jane, Sam, and Chris. I would recommend disregarding those comments when deciding on a driving school to attend. It disappoints me to see that it has come to this. I would also recommend giving truthful, legitimate reviews. Not reviews written out of anger or contempt. If the reviews were truthful and accurate, there would be no need for the instructors to write reviews to bring the rating up. My own thoughts on this school are: It's a bit small, over crowded, and hot in the Summer. Otherwise, I believe it's a school worth going to. The information is accurate, and the classes for the course I took were only for a week. It's easy enough to endure from something like 8:30 - 3:30. Remember, once you're done, you're done.

      95% of these comments have been left by either A/E or DTC. I went to DTC. The room was overcrowded and hot. Toll relies on old movies and antiquitated techniques and is condescending to students. Thelma is very hard to understand and should prob. be deported.

      I have been there and done that and some of the post are not from real students. To start with the 4 star rating was given by himself. He can be a moron some times and he can teach well others. He some times can waste time on the road and not teach anything and other times he will teach you something. His bad points is that he thinks he is great and talks down to the students. I do not like or dislike this school I am just given the facts

      Driver Training Center has been rated 4 Star (best rating) by the Professional Driver Education Association because of both its professionalism, integrity and experience. I thoroughly checked out this school before having my teen attend. There was no disappointment. This school offered an excellent course. The instructors were on time and everything went better than expected. There is little doubt in my mind that this school is one of the best in the State!! I very highly recommend attending ! ! !
