Customer Reviews

I can't stop praising the professionalism of managers. They were incredibly attentive to every detail. They always remembered my name and our history of interactions. I had to reschedule things a few times because of my hectic work. I relocated from abroad in Brooklyn and I had so many questions. The quality of service was simply brilliant! The managers always stayed calm, friendly and welcoming. They made me feel much more confident.
Thank you for your assistance! I needed help with my DMV road test in Brooklyn. I was already running a bit late with my plans and I had to act as quickly as possible. I passed my test right on time. The managers were highly helpful and understanding. I would definitely recommend them to my friends, colleagues, acquaintances and everyone else. It was a great way of saving funds and nerves.
The process of studying was very interesting! Some of my friends who got their licenses earlier than me complained about getting bored while memorizing the theory. I prepared myself for a similar experience — but actually, I had fun! The information was very well-structured. I understood everything on the go and had to ask questions only a couple of times. Thank you so much for the amazing classes and wonderful teachers!
