"We (my wife and I, and our daughter) were very happy with
. Although I obviously didn't participate in the classes or driving sessions, the instructors" always were personable and very willing to answer all questions we had throughout the course, and all class sessions and driving sessions started and ended on time. Because our family life is hectic, it was good to have the ability to attend classes at different times and on different days, and even at different locations. Although we took advantage of this only once, it was nice to have the option available. Additionally, our daughter passed her state driving test on her first attempt, which -- based on the driving test results of some of her high school classmates (none of whom attended
) -- apparently isn't incredibly common. When our son gets his learner's permit in 2 years, he will attend
also.

"My wife and I cannot speak highly enough about
of
, and the assigned driving instructor,
. My wife is from Uzbekistan," and she needed driving lessons prior to taking her driver's test for the first time. After some initial research on-line comparing schools, followed by some phone calls, we settled on Noble, and am very happy that we did. Soon after filling out the registration on-line for my wife, the office manager contacted me and explained their pricing and services. After setting up a tentative date for my wife's first lesson,
called us to to confirm when the date rolled around, and then we discussed the class schedule and driving lesson package. We ultimately settled for the initial 5-lesson package, about an hour to 1.5 hours each. That package had
scheduling the lessons direct with my wife via text and phone, and coordinating his other student's schedules with my wife's work schedule. After the first 5 lessons were complete,
spoke with me on the phone to explain my wife's driving progress, and what she needed to work on in order to get ready for the driving test. We then agreed on another 5 lesson package, this time at a reduced cost because of the repeat business. We also used
's
car for my wife's test (though there was an extra charge for that), because it was the car she was most comfortable driving. Ultimately, my wife passed her driving test on the first attempt, and we have
's patience, knowledge, encouragement and great teaching style to thank for that.

"First when I called he was very patient with me. He told me of Drivers Ed class that he backed, which meant when two weeks went by after class finished and no certificate came in mail." I called
personally and he answers phone.
himself delivered certificate to my house next day no extra charge. Total 12.00. Online, but some online services I am sure will not deliver to your door if problem. I was impressed. Then when I asked about driving lessons. Since my grandson is 16 yrs, he recommended 2 lessons 80. (Each 2 hours) to get
grandson familiar with driving and then I could do third lesson whenever I wanted (law requires 3 lessons). Very pleasant instructors came right on time. New car 2 steering wheels and 2 brakes my grandson said. Just all around great service!

My daughter is in a lot of activities and my husband and I were eager to have my daughter start learning to drive. After getting her permit, I took her out to a large parking lot. She had no driving experience, except driving a go-kart or lawn mower on rare occasion. After perhaps one of the longest hours of my life, I took her home. My husband had her drive down the block, then we decided it was time to call

--we had picked up his card at a school open house. Let me preface this by saying my child is NOT a crazy driver, she was just the opposite, she was painfully slow and methodical and the thought of pulling out on Olive or Page was frightening! I called the next day and easily booked time for 7 consecutive days over spring break. We met

was always punctual and I loved the option of having my student picked up at our house, which I used 2 of the days. After every lesson, he spoke with me regarding what they worked on and things to watch for when we were practicing driving. She really liked that he was a teacher, so in her words, "it didn't feel all weird" when he was trying to talk with her during lessons. They spoke easily about school and activities. She is SOOO much better than that first day! My daughter told me that

Over the summer I contacted
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
to take driving lessons, with the goal of getting my license by the end of the summer. I was definitely VERY happy with the service I got from everyone at
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
. The communication was prompt and professional and I was quickly able to schedule my first session. I was at first a little bit nervous because of the price, but you are definitely paying for better quality with this school because you are getting actual driving lessons, as opposed to just hours of experience driving a car.
My instructor was Adeel, who was very personable. He was very calm even when I made mistakes, which definitely helped me not to feel nervous when driving. At the same time, there was still a big emphasis on safety. Also, from the very first lesson he was reviewing basic driving skills with me – things that experienced drivers

’t think about, but newer drivers would
struggle with. He didn’t make any assumptions about what I did or didn’t know, which was helpful to me. When I did something right he would tell me, and when I did something wrong he would explain how to correct the problem in the future.
Also, I told him that my goal was to take the road test by the end of the summer, and he worked with that goal in mind throughout the 5 sessions.
After my 5 sessions were over, I continued to practice for the road test for about 2 more weeks. After that, I went to take the road test, and I passed on the first try – and this was well before the summer was over!
Overall, I was very impressed with how professional both Adeel and the people I spoke with on the phone/emailed were, and I was also impressed with the amount of instruction I received in just 5 sessions. In 5 sessions with Adeel, I had enough skills to take the road test. I would highly recommend this school to adults who are trying to learn to drive, need help with the basic driving skills, and who

My daughter had tried to master driving, but had anxiety about driving in general coupled with a less than great experience with another driving school a year earlier. She wanted to drive but everything about it confused and panicked her.
I was referred to
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
by a family friend. From the first phone call to discuss what
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
could do to help til the very last lesson, our experience was terrific. My daughter had her confidence back in the first lesson. Her instructor was Adeel
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
and he was excellent. He put her at ease in the car, and she said he was reassuring throughout the lessons. He provided exceptionally detailed observations of her driving skills, and developed an individualized plan for her. She was the only student in the car -- not crammed in with others for hours at a time. Her lessons began and ended on time, and each time I could see the growth in her skills and confidence. At the end of her first set of lessons, he again offered a detailed observation of her skills with suggestions for additional lessons to strengthen her ability as a driver.
She ended up doing a total of 9 lessons -- 5 for the first round, and then an additional 4. We got a returning customer discount. Most important: his guidance was correct. She agreed that she did need the extra lessons to fine tune her driving and to feel comfortable on the road. Most importantly, she passed her drivers test.
Not every driver learns the same way -- some need one-on-one instruction to fit their learning style. Exceptional customer service and a great experience.

They told my wife she needed additional lessons before she took the driving test. I agreed to pay extra for those lessons. Now they will not schedule the lessons. I have called and left messages. Sent email to the Fishers location and the school owners. They never respond.

I would not recommend this school to people who English is their second language.

The sons completed the course in 8 days taking Sunday off. They now have their license. They were happy

Great driving program. My son learned a lot and the instructor he had was excellent. The cost is high but in the end I think it was well worth it. I really liked that when you called their number you got an actual person to talk to about the program. They are one of the few that I found did this. I liked that the class was two days instead of just one - and they brought in a truck driver to talk about trucks and cars on the road together. That was excellent information for new drivers. I was very pleased with

My son

just completed The AA drivers school course. Before I add my comments on Angie’s list, I wanted to pass on some comments/suggestions which might help improve your service in the future. First your office staff made the paper work, scheduling, DMV process easy! They answered all my questions and gave very helpful tips for navigating through the DMV process. I had to reschedule 2 drives and once again, my phone call was promptly returned and the drives were rescheduled hassle-free.

...a disaster drive! First they entered a new, larger car
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
had never driven and tried to adjust the seat.
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
was quite irritated and yelled at
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
for not knowing how to adjust the seat! Then
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
gave directions,
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
followed, then would be abruptly, rudely told the task was done wrong and he would be flunked....for example,
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
stopped at a white line at a stop sign...then not having clear vision he advanced up past the white line to see oncoming traffic, then turned...and was told he would flunk,
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
tried to explain or ask what to do...and was cut off...no,no you would flunk. Then during part of the drive
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
started answering text messages, then talked on the phone.
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
tried not to listen in on the casual conversation but
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
would shout out directions in the middle of the phone conversation...”change

was rude, impatient and simply a poor teacher. The consequence was

and I were guessing

must have been having a bad day,
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
ran into another student who casually asked how his drive went.
Mounds View Driver Education Provider Name Locked
