What Others Are Saying

Our questions were always answered, and Denise was very kind and accommodating. My daughter took the Behind-the-Wheel course and loved it. She always came home with information and the proper techniques of how to turn, stop, and other aspects of driving to help her feel more confident when she drove with me to prepare for her license. We would recommend Northern Lights Driver Education to others.

I had several concerns when starting the driver education process – would my child be safe, what would the price be, would the instructor be thorough in teaching what is needed. NLDE was a great program for our child and we got to personally know the instructor. While my child didn’t like answering questions in front of peers, the class itself was very informative and was given in a way that our child maintained the info. Our child like the behind the wheel portion of the class and it is definitly a must when learning to drive. She learned a lot about driving and the curriculum was perfectly age based. We would recommend Northern Lights Driver Education to others.


Great experience! Ms. McDougall was flexible and would meet us where convenient for us, was very kind, knowledgeable, reliable, and had great communication skills and informed us of things our child should work on. She responded to texts for last minute questions before taking the test! She went above and beyond expectations.


My child did the behind-the-wheel portion with Northland Lights Driver Education. It was very thorough and professional. My son learned a great deal. I appreciated the time Denise took after each two hour session to discuss driving for that day. She was positive and encouraging for a young driver. I would recommend her to others.

As a single parent, working multiple jobs, I was worried about how I was going to be able to get my son to driver’s education classes downtown…I was thrilled that Northern Lights had such a convenient location right here in Proctor. It couldn’t have been any nicer! Furthermore the classroom facility was clean, climate controlled, and in a safe, family friendly location.My son throughly enjoyed the classroom portion of the class. It was paced at a level that kept him on his toes, but was not overwhelming nor too slow and boring. He made more then one comment about Denise…”Denise said this and Denise told us that… Denise really cares if we know this stuff…Denise really wants us to be safe, like the stuff she has to show us is suppose to scare us, but you can tell she really just wants us to realize how bad we could get hurt or hurt someone else… driving is a huge responsibility…”
Greg really enjoyed BTW… he was bummed if Denise had to brake for him…😛 He said, “Denise has A LOT more patience than you do mom…” Nevermind I told him some of the EXACT same things Denise did…If it came from her— it was the word of God…

Our biggest concern was trying to fit the behind-the-wheel in around work and school. It wasn’t an issue. My son liked it and learned a lot. I would recommend Northern Lights Driver Education.

I was afraid of driving because of the traffic and all the regulations. Northern Lights Driver Education helped me to resolve that by helping me get used to the roads and regulations. The class was very helpful. I would recommend it to others.
