Drivers Ed reviews in Chicago
Just got an email from that they are abadoning the student described below. This review in no way reflects poorly on the instructors. I have spent time at waiting on my driver and have been impressed with their attention to detail and being engaged with their charges.
...MoreRead more of this review /> 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. does train well. But they can not handle customization. First, after some 5 emails and 10 or so schedule reschedule calls, they could not grasp I was not the drivers father. Extremely frustrating. Second, of course picking up the student South Side is great for the student. It isn't what I paid for. I paid to be able to leave work and go up Western and meet up with the student or drop them off so I could be included. Ok, so why don't I just drive south?? Well I would of except they kept telling me one thing and doing something else. It is really because they could not understand I was not the students father nor able to talk to the student as I work in the interior of a hospital. Literally I was blindsided and each time this happened, I was dismissed . Finally the last time I drove in traffic 1 hr in the worng direction and now that I complained the owners send me an email telling me the are abandoning the student.
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 to the wrong place.
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 , but in the end no one listened and I was just a an ATM.
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.
Hired for 3 8 hrs sessions and insist that at least 2-4 hrs be on the freeway and 2-4 hrs be at night.
Told student we would not help get an actual car until they return to in /Feb to be trained in winter conditions as well as working with a mechanic to show how to change a tire, safety check lights bulbs, warning lights etc. (thats another review) . No drivers test until 24hrs complete like it or not exuberent teen or not.
has been accomodating. The instructors can be a handful and have gone around my schedule which required a serious discussion with the operations person. BUT the quality of care is there. I did spend a good time watching these guys and have been impressed with their attentiveness and that they are engaged with the student. Not reading a newspaper while eens run through the streets.
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 ...go to the North Shore schools.
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?" " rabbit starts cost fuel" " etc.
