“BEST DRIVING SCHOOL EVER!!!! This is my first time driving, I am 36 years old and a super nervous driver. The 1 Driving school team are so talented, courteous, and extremely patient. After 6 hours of driving i definitely feel more confident in my driving skills, and was not as nervous and relaxed while driving. They also gave good driving tips. You can definitely tell the 1 Driving school team is all about supporting you to be the best and safest driver possible. “

Stacy N. 

If I could give them 1000 stars I would. This driving school was the best fit for my daughter and I’m so glad I came across them. My daughter did the (3)  2 hours sessions for her driving requirements and her instructor was so kind and professional. She was so comfortable with him and I would recommend this company to anyone who needs any driving lessons.

Kamille M.

Never thought I would be able to drive after just 1 class!!! These guys are awesome!!!! Highly recommend them.
