Two hands on the wheel, eyes on the road!

Denise is an amazing instructor and my son enjoyed her and learned a lot from her training.Classroom portion taught my son many aspects of driving that has ensured he is a cautious driver. Denise covered everything in depth and I’m very thankful for everything she taught my son, he loved training with her. I highly recommend Northern Lights Driver Education.

My son took classes through a different provider, but he felt he learned more in his first driving session with Northern Lights Driver Education than he did in all the classes.  It was good to see him drive after the first time with Denise.  As with most teens, he was reluctant to take “Mom’s advice” on driving technique, but after his first behind-the-wheel session he was confidently pointing out some of the things I was initially concerned about and what Denise had taught him.  He enjoyed his time in BTW training and became a better driver.  I’m very glad he waited to take his training with you.  Thank you, and keep putting out good, safe drivers!

I had concerns about how my son would even complete his Behind the Wheel instruction due to his busy school and sports schedule.  Northern Lights Driver Ed was extremely flexible with the session and times.  My son Garrett had a great experience taking the Behind the Wheel sessions with Denise.  He felt much more confident as a driver and was well prepared not only for this driver’s test, but for navigting in a variety of different driving situations.  Denise has a calm demeanor and gave a lot of valuable instruction.  Garrett felt comfortable asking questions and learned a lot.  I would easily give Northern Lights Driver’s Ed a 5 start rating and recommend them to others.
