This was a wonderful company to work with for training both my daughters to drive well and safely! Jason and all his staff are such nice people. This course is top of the line for driver training.

I absolutely loved this class. My favorite class period. 1-12th grade compares to nothing than what this man has taught me in a span of 3 weeks. Hes amazing and hes my favorite teacher (Odalis bostic) Driving feels less daunting and scary with him.

We didn’t know what to expect taking this class but I’m so glad that we did. My 16 y/o son actually enjoyed this class. I would recommend any parent to sign their child up for this course. It allowed me to stay updated regarding his progress and attendance. This was a great experience for my teenager and I couldn’t have done it without Defensive Driving School. Thank you

My instructor, Jason is an AMAZING teacher. Like i would regret going anywhere else. The classes have kept me engaged and focused so i have learned so much and been able to use my defensive driving skills I'm taught during every drive.

Highly recommend registering to this drivers ed school. The instructors are very helpful and patient with students, especially when on drives.My instructor Jason was able to turn a typical boring lesson into something more interesting by making jokes and finding ways to engage us. Yet he was still able to teach us the importance of driving and how to look out for potential hazards.

Jason is a great teacher and he makes sure that we have a lot of fun. I'm learning lots and will be ready to drive in no time. Plus I will be safer having taken defensive drivers class.

When I signed up for drivers ed I figured it was going to be some boring 2 hr class I had to spend a month of my summer in. But, my instructor Jason made it super comfortable and enjoyable! I was able to learn and have fun at the same time, Jason had my family and I cracking up the whole time! 10/10 would recommend, thank you DDS!
