      Oldest daughter went to the "other" school and a terrible experience that was. The youngest has gone here and receive excellent guidance. Instructors were on time and professional. Vehicles were newer and well kept. With all optimal safety features. She received a solid foundation for her driving experience in life. She respected her instructor and received respect in return. Highly recommend this school!!

      Finally!!! A driver training school that truly cares! The way the instructors interacted with my son (who was struggling) was amazing. I had to go on his 5th drive so the driving coach could show me where he was struggling & how I can be prepared when he completes the program. The patients these people must have is incredible. Thank you A.D.A. & coach Pallo. keep up the good work!!

      Driving test was son was driving for months with me and is an exceptional driver. He failed his driving test but wasn't told this until we drove an extra 25 minutes with the instructor. What a waste of our time. I believe ADA fails people on purpose so that they can collect an extra $40.00 dollars. I wonder what the percentage of fails amounts to in a year. I tried to find the data online but was unable to. I do not recommend this school. Find a different location and save some money.

      8/9/11 I had a private drive with the company and the gentleman that stepped in to take me last minute was very kind. We had easy conversation and we spent my entire hour practicing parking. He showed me tricks to remember while taking your test and all of the anxiety of the test was taken away. After I practiced, I knew exactly what to do for my test and I understood everything a lot more. 8/12/11 I had my road test given by the owner, Leonard, and I had previously taken two more tests through the company. When I failed the first two, it was purely my fault as I didn't know how to park. Both men were kind in that they helped me understand what I did wrong before I left. They don't set you up to fail, they just want you to do well here. I can tell they want you to succeed. I went on to pass my third time with the help of the private drive. I absolutely reccomend this place. You wouldn't want your kid going somewhere that the instructor's don't care or they're rude as learning how to drive is scary enough. Everyone I encountered in this business is friendly and very helpful.

      Horrible! Mr. Huggins was rude and openly admitted he was racist because he was a cop. I would not recommend to anyone. I was taught "you hesitate you die!" a little intense don't you think?

      The testers' expectations are ridiculous. As well, he kept calling my son "dude". Very unprofessional. I have driven with my son many times and his alleged wrong doings are rarely experienced with me. These tests are subjective enough without adding these types of people to the mix. I know I won't be back and I know I will not be recommending this service to people with children I would have otherwise.

      Just had my youngest of 5 complete this program! As a parent I think it is very important to find a company that truly cares about how these students are learning one of their biggest responsibilities they will ever have. Keep up the good work!!

      I think ADA is the best driving school in the area. My first child when to another place and between that experience and comments from parents about other places, ADA is in a category all on it's own!
