      This was a good driving school BUT when i was in class the teacher told me not to lean back in my chair and one hour later i did it again by accident because it is a normal reaction. He responded by kicking me out of class. The next month my friend stsrted the same class with the same teacher and he said that he was leaning back in his chair while talking to the teacher like many times and he never kicked him out. then the next day my parents came in to talk to him he was very disrespectful to my parents. It comes out that my parents wasted like $350 on the drivers edd and making me pay for it. And i am very upset by the apple driving service . by the way they did not give me any refund.

      Mr. richardson is a great teacher. He does his job right he is suppose to be hard on his why would you want a teacher saying your doing great when your not. It's your fault for doing badly you should do what your told read do good on the quizez and drive times apply what he says when your driving. He actually cares for you and wants you to well. He actually talks to you makes conversation and you have a great time with him hes funny too! Driving isnt meant to be easy its a serious business one small move you could be in an accident. People who think he's a bad teacher or whatever needs to realize he's doing his job and he does it well.

      They're only out to take your money. On the road test, they don't explain anything either. They're happy to fail you. And good news! When they do fail you, you get $10 off your next roadtest! Yay! :\

      Excellent instructor (Mr Richardson). My daughter was well taught with a lot of attention to the forming of good defensive driving habits. Yes, he is strict, (at least from a 15 year olds perspective), but so what. Driving is not a party. This is is serious business and he instructs his students accordingly.

    • Published 2/8/2009 3:00 PM


      As long as you know how to follow instuctions and participate in a class, this can be very easy. Mr. Richardson is strict, would you want someone who didn't care to be teaching drivers what they need to know? I don't think so. To all of you unsatisfied customers, get your facts straight.

      None OF Your Business

      In my opinion, the school has a bad repuation as it is. I, believe the teacher, could've gotten the message clearer if he wasnt so inpatient and rude. He, Knew what he was doing, but expected everyone else to know it as well. I took their Segment-1 Class In March 2007. Thats my opinion. Actually the truth.

      This company is only there to take your money. They are not interested in anything else. This company also does not follow the proper procedures provided by the state of Michigan ( page 10) PLEASE READ ALL THE OTHER REVIEWS BEFORE YOU WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!

      Disgruntled Customer

      My instructor was Mrs. Erin Richardson. I was only at this school to take my road test, and she was very vague with her instructions. I failed the parking test by one point because she failed to clarify that I need to stop before a thick yellow line but after a small line. I parked within 12 inches of the wide yellow line but failed to pass a small white line, that she did not mention. She also gave me two points for the same infraction, each point had a different reason, even though it was the same infraction. When she informed me that I missed the test by one point, I asked her to clarify the two infractions that gave me 3 points. As soon as I asked she got very condescending with me, and started to get rude. I wasnt even there for 3 minutes and she was ready to take my money, with out challenging the infraction. If you even try to question her, even if you may be right and you are polite, she will quickly go into "defense mode". She even mentioned why she gets so defensive quickly, which leads me to believe that she does not want to help you, but just take your money. I would highly reccomend a more reputable company such as Courtesy, or Apple driving school.

      I had American Driving School for sement 1, 2 and the road test. It is a harder program but if you really want to learn how to drive, this is the place to go. Mr R is hard on you because he cares.

      Parents and Students Beware. This is operation ran by abusive personalities who are there to take your money without providing a legitimate service. After speaking to other patrons and other companies who provide same type of service they have a history of abusive and unprofessional behavior. I was told they have written their own positive reviews.

      I tried to go to American Driving School and the day I was supposed to take the parking class I called to get directions. The guy who I think owned the business was extremely rude! He told me he has been there since 8:30 in the morning and he didn't have time to help me! There was a lot more to the conversation but they ended up taking my money even though I was right there! I am now in a battle with them to get it back! These people are money hungary and they will fail you just to get your money and have you come back!!!
