"Parents, if you are having troubles deciding which Driving School to have your child attend, may I suggest Coach Al's Driving School. My daughter started with another well known driving school last year. (July 2018) The class portion was fine, but my daughter was never able to get schedule for her driving time, 7 hours of hands on driving instruction with an instructor. Once the driving schools students when back to school so did their instructors. After seven months and only promises of getting my daughter her required driving time, I decided to go to Coach Al's. Coach Al's driving instructor Gary Tafoya picked up my daughter at her school to start her driving lessons and would end them each time at our home. No dropping off or picking up at the school, which made it so nice for us. Eddie Torres, the schools class instructor direct me on how to get my daughters paperwork transfer from previous school to them, so they could complete the certification and the final driving test for my daughter.Great company for any parent with teens. Highly recommend them."
"I have four kids and the youngest went to this driving school. I wish all my kids would have attended this driving school. They made us feel special and the perks that this school (pick up from school, drop off at home, etc...) as part of the driving instruction was great. They have the kids get their permits when the school starts so they can drive with a parent or instructor right of way. They made my daughter feel like their own child. I would definitely recommend this school for your child! Thumbs up!"
"Coach Al's is amazing. My daughter was struggling and everyone there was patient and kind and took her out every opportunity to help her get more experience. They went above and beyond. Thanks Coach Al's."
"I am 31 years old and my previous experience driving was nearly 15 years ago. I was kind of nervous getting behind the wheel after such a long time. But Coach Eddie did a terrific job guiding me and made me realize I could do it. I really enjoyed the lessons and became much more confident after them. Thanks Eddie!"
