John is the best driving instructor I ever had. He is very supportive and patient, and teaches everything you need to know to become a skilled driver and pass the exam. Thanks to him I passed the exam from first attempt. Highly recommend the Proactive Driving School!

Lanie NicolettiLanie Nicoletti

We had an amazing experience with A Proactive Driving School; we choose to do the online schooling first - which was very convenient. For the driving lessons my son had George; he was FABULOUS! It was convenient and easy to schedule the hours, George picked up my son at our house; was on time, patient and full of information. Even after the lessons were completed my son would text George to ask questions, he would always answer and help out. My son passed the first time and was excited to let George know he had passed. Definitely a great experience and good value for the money - other places are more money!

I am so glad that I chose this driving school! Teachers create an atmosphere of calm and confidence. I took the exam in the most unfavorable conditions, but my teacher gave me confidence. Now I enjoy high-quality driving. I recommend it to everyone!
