There are positive and negative reviews on first route, but when it comes to Lauren, the driving instructor, you can't go wrong. She is the best thing that happened to me in first route and my driving experience. Always on time, jovial and with me every step of the way. SPOILER ALERT! everything she taught me was in the G2 road test. There was no way to fail something, I have been doing over and over again. I do not know if students choose instructors, but I'd highly recommend her.SincerelyEliud

Madiha was incredibly kind a patient with me both in the car, and when working around ky hectic schedule. She effortlessly put me at ease when driving, and all but erased the bad experience I had had with a previous driving instructor. She explained everything in such plain terms and with references that were easy to remember. 10/10 for her!!!

I highly recommend instructor Rafael Garcia from First Route Driving School London. He is an outstanding professional and a very kind person. He took the time to show me every possible scenario that I could face, not only related to the test context, but also to real life, which definitely made me a better driver in Canada. I am truly thankful for having the opportunity to learn with him. Rafael's feedback during the classes were so respectful. They helped me to feel comfortable and confident to perform a great test. I passed my G2 with zero mistakes! Excellent driver instructor.

I met First Route Driving School London after failing in getting a G license. Taking the classes with the driving instructor Rafael was essential to build my confidence in driving, get familiar with all driving rules and be calm to perform the test. I also took a final class 1-hour before my road test and we made exactly the same path that I made later during my test; coincidentally, I parallel parked with the same car as I had trained before with Rafael. I got my G2 WITH NO MISTAKES!!!Rafael is very respectful, patient and helped build my confidence behind the wheel. I highly recommend First Route Driving School London, SPECIALLY the instructor Rafael Magalhaes.

the First route driving class has been amazing ! The classes were straight forward and when I needed support they helped me within minutes. The class was very educational and taught me stuff I previously did not know.When I was finally ready for my in class lessons, I got the driving instructor Madiha Zia. Madiha was a very calm and stress free instructor. She gave me advise and constructive criticism that helped me become a better driver.The 401 was understandably pretty stressful. I heard stores of driving instructors increasing the stress levels tenfold with their actions (raising their voices and being hostile towards the new drivers ), essentially frightening the already stressed young driver. However Madiha maintained a calm and constructive demeanour and helped me get comfortable with the 401My driving instructor was funny, very calm and over all was an amazing teacher, the stores she told me of other drivers were both terrifying and inspiring, but they helped me understand what not to do in those situations.In conclusion, I would recommend the first route drivers course to anyone who wants to have a save and constructive place to practice there driving skills. If you had a choice in who to choose for driving instructor, I would highly recommend Madiha Zia for her personality, her constructive teaching methods and her uplifting demeanour whilst driving. thank you Madiha for helping me become a better driver.sincerely.Jacoby Dillon

Rafael was a great instructor, very kind and helpful. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a driving school or just a few lessons!

Rafael was my driver instructor for first route, and he went out of his way to make time for me to practice for my test! He really made me feel comfortable about driving, teaching me all road rules and guidelines to be the safest and most cautious driver I can be! He even helped me through all the possible practice routes for the G2 test which I passed first try! I wouldn’t be the driver I am without Rafael’s help, he’s an amazing teacher!

I successfully passed my G2 last month in Kingston on my first shot!!I'd like to thank the school for helping me to refresh my overall knowledge with providing great information and videos to better understand the concept.But mainly, I'd like to thank my instructor Steve for sharing his skills, knowledge, experience,and preparing for the road test!! Anyone who is interested in getting driver's license and if your instructor is Steve, consider yourself to be a lucky one because you'll definitely pass it!! He's a great, funny, and patient individual who cares about his students and loves his job!!

Before beginning my in-car lessons, I had very little driving experience and really lacked confidence. That all changed after just one lesson with Tom! With his professionalism, experience, patience, and excellent instruction, I finally felt that I could achieve my goal of learning to drive. With each lesson I gained even more confidence and quickly learned the skills required to pass my G2 driving test. A huge thank you to Tom and his expertise; he's a natural in this role. Anyone who has this instructor is very fortunate!

Steve B was my driving instructor (First route driving - Kingston). This man is loaded with knowledge and experience (I guess his experience is more than my age). I have minimum driving experience. He helped me learn the ropes quickly, made me comfortable at every stage, was very patient all the way through. He is very funny, giving real life examples (on the road).Not just telling you how to drive but, also he has a writing board and a marker and some toy cars. He simulated what I was about to do and explained everything. I was struggling with parallel parking, he didn't give up on me, he went out of the league and came up with a different technique, which was a lot easier for me to follow and worked all the time.I would highly recommend taking lessons with Steve B!!

I passed drive test in my first attempt jus because my instructor was Giles White. I can say this because I had experience with other instructors(2) in first route itself, from that I would recommend Giles. He is the best , he do his job 100% efficiently. He teaches with the best techniques and that would help us to drive with more confidence, Also his scheduling for classes is awesome , try to accommodate according to our flexibility and I never heard any cancellation of classes from him or changing the time at last moment. If you have an option Ask for Giles.

I had a great experience with first route driving school. My instructor Tom is a great teacher and I felt very confident going into the g2 road test.

I did my Beginner Drivers Education course from here and I find my decision very right because the in car instructor Tom was very nice and teached me alot of new things which i never wondered would be rules for driving and because of that I got my G2 in First Attempt.

Studied here for my driver's license. The instructor I had, Octavian, is an easy-going, well-informed, and extremely experienced instructor and driver who had an answer to my many questions. Learning from him was fun, enjoyable, and easy, and getting in the car with him felt comfortable and I felt safe even when making mistakes. A really great and informative program and at a great price compared to other local schools.

I passed my road test on the first try. Tony and Brandon are the best instructors! They are very knowledgeable and make you feel super comfortable. Although they are laid back, when they see you make an error they don't scold you they talk to you and explain what you did wrong and what to do on the next attempt. When it was close to my road test they definitely accommodated me with the schedule and instructor I wanted.

Amazing! I passed my road test today on the first try! I am thrilled that this place is located very close for me; it is only a 15-20 minute walk from my house. The prices are great and the people are great.I took the 10-driving lesson package that includes the 20 hours of in-class work and 10-hours of in-car driving. These 10 lessons are just enough for a newbie driver to get comfortable when still having minimal driving experience elsewhere (less than 5 hrs).In this course, I had two instructors; Scott and Brandon. Scott was the first guy who got the jitters of driving in Kingston out of me for the first time. He got me to focus on the road ahead, as well as the technicalities of turning.As for Brandon, he's a friendly, patient guy. He fixed my right turns, making them more narrow than before. He has this laid-back and chill vibe about him but still makes sure you're learning! During each lesson, he corrected my right turns about 5-7 times and did the same with the left turns, then moved on to parking and pulling up behind cars, next to a pole, etc. And I love how he told me that he might be more nervous than me for the road test today! That gave me such reassurance; he actually cared about his students passing and doing well.As for scheduling, you just have to be patient with them. I heard about other students not starting their lessons quickly, but I received a call the day after I was ready to start in-car lessons. If you're not sure about anything, just call them and they'll check it for you.Ergo, thank you, First Route! Great classes. Great instructors.

Excellent driving school! Toni 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 Toni prior to her G license test and came back saying she learned more in that hour with Toni then she did throughout the entire driver's ed course she took elsewhere. I would highly recommend First Route!

My son took this a few months ago and quite liked it. He found the instructor (Paula I think) to be funny and he passed his G2 the first time. Their prices were good, and we are signing up our other son this summer
