Two hands on the wheel, eyes on the road!

Adella had to take driver’s training in a zoom class due to COVID. Denise, the instructor did an amazing job getting the kids to interact and stay focused and to teach them the importance and safety of driving. We thought the class room portion was excellent! We loved how Denise was so punctual and informative during the behind-the-wheel instructions! Adella said she took the time to teach the safety in driving and safety of being alone as a femaile walking to a car in a public, dark parking lot. Which is very important these days!! Very grateful for that as a parent to a teenage girl!

With our older son we had a terrible experience with a different drivers ed program. When Eli was ready, we went off a recommendation from a friend to try Northern Lights.  I am so happy we did! The whole process was super easy from registration to completion.

Eli thought it was worked great, even remotely due to Covid and having to be online. There weren’t any connection issues and Eli was able to follow along quite easily.

Denise was fantastic with getting Eli scheduled and on the road.  Eli really enjoyed the whole process.

I was hoping for good communication about the schedule, make-up dates, and ensuring requirements were met for each stage. Denise was always prompt, helpful, and professional in all communication, and informed parents about everything pertinent to their student’s education.

My daughter learned an immense amount of information, and found the classroom content to be presented in an interesting and informative manner, with plenty of examples and illustrations to help remember the class content. She received a very thorough driver’s education from Denise.

My daughter was very happy with behind the wheel. She learned so much, felt comfortable with Denise, and always came home feeling confident and positive about her performance. We knew she was in good hands from the very beginning; it was clear that Denise cares deeply about her students having an adept grasp on everything they need to know to drive safely. We’ve had three kids go through driver’s training, and this one by far was the best. It far exceeded our expectations.

We give Northern Lights Driver Education 5-stars!

Before class started I was concerned that my daughter had picked up bad habits from watching me and her sisters. She had, we discussed it, and Denise helped her correct it. The classroom portion was much needed before started out on becoming a responsible driver. My child would like even more hours with the driving instructor.

I think that being responsible behind the wheel and making good choices can’t be stressed enough. Education on the consequences of choices we make more in-depth would maybe help to become a good responsible driver. We would recommend Northern Lights Driver Education!
