Highly rated driving instructors spend hours on the road teaching teenagers and some adults how to drive. Learn the biggest pet peeves of driving instructors.
There’s nothing like the freedom you feel when you get your first driver’s license. In studying for your driver’s test, find a course that is in sync with your state laws and is challenging and thorough.
Driver's education teachers recommend getting kids enrolled as soon as they're legally able to get behind the wheel. In many states, that age is 15 but it varies.

Which is why I am absolutely over the moon that
That is how good these folks do their job: as a busy entrepreneur, mother, wife etc, I did not even think twice about the distance when we learned about IDS in SoCal. They are THAT good. And the need for my daughter to become an excellent driver is THAT important.
A bit of background: We were introduced to IDS when they made a presentation at my kids high school on Silver Spring MD. I was impressed with the program philosophy, instructor experience and materials this program offered. That police officers teach the course is a bonus on several levels.
My daughter is eager to drive but not so much that she is really engaged in the process when I chauffeur her around town. As opposed to her brother who asked thoughtful questions about the mechanics, laws, and culture of operating a motor vehicle each time he we got in the car. As he progressed through the IDS training his questions became more sophisticated, his Behind The Wheel confidence skyrocketed without approaching arrogance, and his respect for the responsibility of driving a car was obvious. I mention this to illustrate my upcoming point:
THE PRESENCE OFI DRIVE SMART IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, IS THE ONLY REASON MY DAUGHTER (FABULOUS AS SHE IS IN SO MANY OTHER AREAS) GETS TO PURSUE HER DRIVERS LICENSE.
IDS is the only program with which I feel completely safe entrusting this huge responsibility of guiding my daughters evolution from passenger to responsible, safe and excellent driver. This is a position I take with with 100% confidence after witnessing the competent and yes, smart - very smart - driver that my son became.
We have only great things to say about this course. Yes, it was among the more expensive options back in Maryland, but it was much cheaper than the hours therapy or pounds of cheesecake required to otherwise calm my nerves as my cherished children grew into drivers.
I was going to ”
My daughter took the classroom portion of the program a year ago. The classroom instruction was good except that a retired state police officer did a scared straight thing that included his railing against anyone who disagrees with his political or religious views. I want my kids to hear all kinds of opinions and to understand all kinds of beliefs but the driving class is not the place for that.
The day after she got her learner's permit my daughter started attempting to sign up for road lessons using their antiquated online booking system. It wouldn't let her book lessons any sooner than three months out and she could only book three lessons at a time.
She became age eligible for her license in April and started calling the office to attempt to secure lessons shortly before that time. She calls every week and is told to call back every time she calls. They lecture her about how long she has been in their system despite the fact that she has been actively trying to sign up for lessons. They suggest that she sign up for text alerts for lessons. She has signed up for text alerts three times and only gets the alerts after I e-mail them to complain. By the way, they do not respond to parent e-mails either. Not a word. You just will suddenly get a couple of text alerts.
I have also called the office. And they tell me to call back too.
I am really disappointed in this company. My experience with them does not support their reputation. If they are the best driving school I don't want to know what the worst one is like.
