    Took me 3 tried going to the MVD on my own and failing the written test all three times... 7 years later, I find this driving school on google and decided to give it another try. without blinking, I passed! DEFINITELY recommend this company and definitely recommend Doug to help get your license!! So worth it!

    I asked for a female instructor and we got Katie. She was great. My daughter really liked her and she was always on time. My daughter was able to pass the test on the last day of class/practice and got her license. Thank you! Would definitely use again. They do have rules about cancelling or changing appointments so read their contract. Also, I found scheduling all your appointments at once is a good idea as their slots fill up fast especially if you want the same instructor.

    I cannot say enough good things about "Go and Drive"! If I could give ten stars I would..our son has Aspergers and was a bit hesitant about driving so it made it hard for us to help teach him. We decided a trainer would be better and my husbands co-worker recommended G&D. My sons trainer "Scott" was absolutely fantastic, he really connected with our son and made him feel so at ease, he came out to our house, picked him up and dropped him off for every lesson. At the end he even took our son to get his license! He did so well and passed everything with flying colors! It was the best money we ever spent. Thanks so much Scott, you were awesome!

    We have had a fantastic experience with the Go and Drive team. I have twins teenagers that will be driving soon and the school has not only prepared them but has also taken a lot of the stressful work out of getting your permit and getting your license. The kids have done their driving time with Devin and have enjoyed the time with him behind the wheel. I definitely recommend this program it is worth every penny!
