Mary & Dan H.
Hinsdale, IL

“Both instructors were exceptionally professional, patient, well-informed, effective teachers who are a credit to the Top Driver Program and who should be singled out for their way with the kids and their easy going but firm teaching style and exceptional knowledge of on the road driving tactics. Our daughter looked forward to her driving time and also thoroughly enjoyed the classroom experience, knowing it was being well taught and they were well prepared. Teachers kept good discipline in class when other kids got distracted which made each minute in the class count, which is priceless. Job well done and money well spent without a doubt! Looking forward to our son’s participation in the coming year as well.”
