What our students say about us

Open and honest reviews from some of our past students.


When I finally got serious about obtaining my license I called A-1 Driving School for private lessons. Luckily I was matched with Cindy who with much patience and expertise helped me correct my bad driving habits, learn new improved skills and be a safer driver. Cindy’s training paid off when I passed my G2 on my first try with no errors! Now at 38 I have my own car and I can stop at an intersection and ask myself is this a good green light or a bad green light! Cindy has given me the tools and ability to be a safe, confident driver.

Hi Sally, I just wanted to say Thank You for being an amazing instructor for both of my children. My son Joseph was the first to have you for an instructor. You helped him understand the importance of road safety and were very patient with him. Joseph passed his G2 on his first attempt and then the next year we called you to help refresh his skills to get his G. He also passed after his first attempt. After seeing his success with your guidance it was a no brainer to have you teach my daughter Bree. Bree passed her G2 on her first try, thanks to you. See you next year Sally to help Bree refresh her skills and get ready to take her G. Thanks again for going out of your way to help accommodate the kids busy schedule.
Heidi, Parent
As a parent of two children who have benefited from A-1 driving school in different ways. Our oldest, gained skills through one on one lessons while our youngest gained both skills and confidence through the in class and in-car lessons. In the end, all because of the talented and patient instructors of A-1 driving.
Carrie, Parent
From my first in class to my last in-car lesson, I have gained confidence in both my driving and in myself. The instructors took the time to teach me skills that I will be able to use and apply in my driving future.
