My daughter started in July with classroom instruction. Not even half way through the instructor quit and a new instructor was sent. After she was done with classroom work it took three weeks for them to call me snd set up an appointment for a driving test. Meanwhile we saw her classroom instructor driving a limo and when we adked he told us that the school hasn't paid him for 2 months.
When she finally got her first appointment this older man spent the hour talking to my daughter about how terrible president Obama I'd and that he was destroying our country. He also trashed Planned Parenthood my daughter doesn't even Care
One occasion he felt asleep (snoring) while she was driving and told her that she was a good driver snd he trusted her. Another occasion he talked about using steroids because he need it them because he was low in testosterone.
This man end up in a hospital and nobody called to cancel his appointments because nobody had his schedule or the phone numbers of thr kids, my daughter waited at the school for 1 hour.
Now in October and she is still waiting to complete her driving hours because they don't hsve instructors to take over this man schedule
This school has both positive and negative aspects, like any other. They were very accommodating to my daughter's schedule, both in behind the wheel and in class. When my daughter had to drop the class because of schedule conflicts she was able to resume it months later, free of charge. The behind the wheel was educational, and I could see improvements in her driving. The management and ownership is lax, however; the owners were unreliable. Consider other options, but keep Confidence in mind; they did teach my daughter to become the excellent driver she is today.
People! most are just being over dramatic. they tell you In class in BOLD letters -LIKE SO- Don't sign up for behind the wheel until your comfortable BEHIND THE WHEEL. You Practice with your parents BEFORE you sign up for lessons. its that simple. No worries Dave is still teaching. I have him. I highly Suggest this class. people, young drivers need to know this stuff eventually!
do not go here! they told my daughter she's not allowed to use the passenger side mirror. I called and asked them about it and they tried to tell me that its state law to teach kids to not use the mirror. I called 4 other driving schools and they said "confidence" is wrong. The way I found out they teach this way is my daughter side swiped my wife's car with mine in our driveway. She knows how to use the mirror now! Avoid this problem with your kids and go somewhere else.
My child was enrolled into confidence driving school about 4 weeks back.
The full payment was made 4 weeks back. At 2 pm on a Friday before the classes were to begin on Saturday (next day at 9 am) confidence called me and told me that the classes were cancelled in the particular location my child was enrolled into & that he should go to a class which is about 12 miles away. When I try to call back to get the money back they were mean to cut off the phone. The confidence school never indicated to me on enrollment, that the classes could be cancelled(not in word or paper). I would not expect any course to do this. These guys do not seem to be committed at all. Any course would give atleast a week notice or disclose these changes upon enrollment....but not confidence driving school. I would NOT receommend this course to anybody
a very displeased paent
fabulous experience – My daughter is now a safe confident driver because Confidence driving School and their great staff. We highly recommend them to many area families.
They were very professional and great educators. I was especially thrilled that they scheduled her driving test, gave her a behind the wheel time prior to the road test and amazingly took her to the test. WOW Where else in the world can a consumer get that kind of service? Thank You Confidence
GREAT Learning experience for my kids! – What is wrong with you people?? My kids (twin 15 year old boys) loved their learning experience with Confidence. The classroom teacher was extremely knowledgeable and was able to get the kids to understand the importance of being a safe driver. The teacher was never late and would stay over to make sure all the kids had a way home. My kids actually looked forward to going to drivers ed...I wish I could say the same about their regular school! Keep doing what you are doing Confidence and thanks for the great job you did teaching my kids to be safe drivers.
Go somewhere else! – Hi,
My name is James and over the last 4 years we have put through 3 of our children with this driving school. My first 2 children had an instructor named Dave, who really did a fine job.
We lied Dave for a few reasons, one was he had his own web site, once you were his student you could schedule driving lesson from his web site , he did take our daughter on a busy street, she had never driven, I asked him about it. His explanation was she needed to driven and the side street have many more rules and hazards.
My daughter felt stressed but overall she admitted she learned a lot that night.
This time we had a women named Nancy and my GOD she was horrible, took breaks to smoke, cut lessons short instead of driving for an hour it was for 40 minutes.
Go somewhere else or find out if Dave went somewhere else.
Not Helpful – this is the worst driving school ever my instructtor made me feel stupid and NOT confident. behind the wheels were uncomfortable and i drove better and learned more with my parents. i wish i would have gone to sears or united and learned more and not be scared to drive
The Worst Driving School Ever! – This is the worst driving school ever! My daughter went to Confidence Driving School because her high school used them. The classroom portion was pathetic. Most of the information she was taught was wrong. Her dad and I made sure she had the correct info and sure enough we were right based on her learners permit test.
The behind the wheel portion was even worse than the classroom. The instructor picked her up for her very first lesson - she had never been behind the wheel of a car before - and made her drive down one of the busiest streets in Milwaukee (Silver Spring Drive) in the pouring rain during rush hour. Then as it got darker, she was told to turn onto Hwy 100 - another of the busiest streets in the city.
He yelled at all the kids in the car, gave very unspecific instructions (such as "turn" Should you turn right? left? a little more information would have helped.) and had her park at a McDonalds so he could get a snack and go to the bathroom. Many of the "tips" he gave the kids were not only dangerous, but also illegal!!!
The next lesson was even worse. At that point, my husband and I decided that there was no way our daughter would be allowed back in the car with this idiot! When I called the office to complain - or at least get a different instructor, I was told there was no changing instructors once the lessons had begun and no refunds for unused lessons. The entire operation lacks professionalism and customer service.
I know all driver's schools get some bad reviews but do yourself a favor - don't even consider this school.
