Excellent driving school! Tony was our son’s driving instructor, very knowledgeable and friendly. Our daughter went to another driver’s ed and the difference was unbelievable. She booked a one hour private lesson with Tony prior to her G license test and came back saying she learned more in that hour with Tony then she did throughout the entire driver’s ed course she took elsewhere. I would highly recommend First Route!

This course was one of the cheaper courses available in my area, and yet I found they more than exceeded my expectations. The classes were made fun and very informative, for both the teenagers and adults taking the course. My driver instructor, Brandon, was very calm, very patient, and talked me through everything that I needed to know. I was very anxious to start driving, and through the in class and driving lessons I have become more comfortable driving. I have, and will continue to, recommend this course to anyone looking for a driving course.
