Driving reviews in Chicago
Second time (2011-12) they were again, not always on time despite issuing frequent dire warnings about tardiness from their students. They do not accept cancelations over the phone no matter how far in advance they are made, yet they rarely pick up so it is impossible to speak to staff in person.
Finally, when my teen went to take his driving test (having fulfilled his driving hours and passed Central's evaluation), Central had not entered him into the City web site and therefore he was unable to sit the test. Of course, when we phoned up about it, no one was there to take the call.
For the amount of money Central charges (especially when compared to the Park District fees) the whole experience with them has been outrageous.”
The instructor had a difficult time with English and did not tell our daughter the correct documents to bring to the testing site, but she did pass and receive her license.
Just got an email from
...More /> The customer service however is terrible. Several times, the schedule was rearranged. I paid for 12 classes and was misdirected on 5 of them. The owners claim they offered to pick my student up South Side as a courtesy, but in reality my understanding is the instructor lived close to my student.
That being said.
They really don't care. It isn't that I would not accept different locations, it is just they never told me and after multiple requests that I not be sent to the wrong place...they break the ever so important continuity of training.
I know for most people that have kids and tlak /text constantly this would not be a problem and obviously adults would make their own schedule and for them its great and the instructors are excellent. For me, it was about trying to help a kid ger a license and not driving
I did , however , find an alternative school whose owners understood that I am not the students father and only needed it told to them once and that if they make a change they'll shoot me a text message (not while driving ;) ) to keep me in the loop.
Really too bad. I had high hopes for
So, I have a student. This is one of those kids that you know right away if they had the same opportunities as other will go far.
This student need to learn to drive to get a car and get to work and back and forth from school
Student has ZERO experience. I have just over 900k under my belt in all sorts of conditions but I don't want this student learning my habits.
Was not looking to quick drive this student. I firmly believe I have a responsibility that if I provide this, it has to be complete.
Told student we would not help get an actual car until they return to
They seem really busy and do take some time to get back to you.
Pricier than other schools, but price to quality is spot on.
They are hectic in their service but not in the delivery. A+ all around. To be honest I compared them to the show MASH. No uniform process, a little hectic, but dead on in service....sort of like driving in the big city... a little crazy, surely not uniform, and hectic and they have earned my trust to keep this teen level headed on the mean streets. If you want your teen to drive like
And how am I so sure they are doing their job and putting this students best interest forward? Because this student now actively and accurately critiques my driving with comments like "Did you notice the posted speed limit?" "This is a school zone and even though after hours kids may be playing?" "
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
