I am so beyond satisfied with my experience at the school!! First of all, Yolanda was so helpful with the scheduling and sent reminders the day before. I had Brandi for both my refresh class and the driving test, and cannot say better things about her! I went in very nervous, but she was so kind and explained everything you need to know to drive safely and responsibly. She gave me the confidence I needed to take the driving test and gave me feedback once the test was over (as well as throughout the class). Definitely going back to take highway driving lessons with them. Cannot recommend them enough!

I highly recommend Target driving school to anyone who wants to learn how to drive. They have a professional and friendly staff who make learning how to drive easy and enjoyable. My instructor Hector was patient, knowledgeable, and supportive. He taught me the skills and techniques I needed to be a safe driver. He made me believe in myself. Yolanda, the point of contact, was very helpful and organized. She scheduled my classes according to my availability and work schedule. She sent me reminders and answered all my questions. Brandi, who took my driving test, was professional and gave me clear instructions and feedback. I didn't experience panic during the test while Brandi watched me drive. Thank you, Target driving school, for helping me achieve my driving goal!

I had a nice experience with my road test preparation and test with Target Driving School. Yolanda was very kind and patiently helped in coordinating the schedule for the classes. Hector was my instructor for the first class and explained the basics, rules and concepts very nicely. Brandi was my instructor for the remaining classes and she patiently explained me the concept of driving safely for the safety of myself and others. During the classes, she conveyed the areas to improve and helped me dispel my nervousness by teaching me the concept of "Target" and worked on my driving. I liked the way how they make you comfortable, listen to you and give confidence at each and every step. Their lessons helped me to clear my exam in the first attempt. I will recommend Target Driving School for the road test preparation.

Just had my first driving lesson with Leanne at Target Driving School and I've got to say, it was awesome. Leanne is such an amazing instructor – she’s super calm and explains things in a way that just clicks. I couldn't believe how comfortable I felt behind the wheel; she really boosted my confidence. The coolest part? I actually drove myself back home after the lesson! Big shoutout to Leanne at Target Driving School – she's doing an amazing job and making driving lessons something to look forward to.

Leanne was a very patient, friendly and knowledgeable instructor. She took time in explaining the laws, clarified each and every doubts and gave plenty of advice on how to drive safe in the road following the rules. Elle is another instructor who gave lot of tips on how to avoid mistakes. My sincere thanks to both of them. Brandi who evaluated me shared the areas where I did well and especially on the areas where I made mistakes. It helped me a lot and reminded to be mindful in the road to drive safe. Thanks Brandi. I highly appreciate Target driving school for everyone who are new to driving.

I highly recommend Target Driving school. They are very structured with their training and I was feeling confident behind the wheel within two classes. My instructor was Brandi and she was very warm , very patient and informative. I had tried learning from another instructor in the past and I could see how different and professional Target Driving School is. 10/10 would recommend them to anyone.

100% would recommend. From the staff to the instructors. I took lessons with Brandi and she was very patient and reassuring during each of our scheduled classes. Working with her not only enabled me to pass my driving test first attempt, she gave me the confidence I needed to drive on my own. Thank you very much, Brandi and Target Driving School!

I took driving class from TDS and was able to get through in single attempt.I booked my class with the help from Yolanda.She is very understandable person - had a thorough discussion about my office timings and available classes timings -- and got one for post lunch time.Hector was my instructor who always maintains cool and calm and possess a very down-to-earth attitude and answers all our questions ( even repeated questions ). He really understands that we may forget few things and explains it again without any if and but.Brandi was my examiner who provides crystal clear instructions and expectations. Post examination, she also explains about mistakes ( if any ) and how to avoid it.Would definitely recommend.

Overall had a great learning and techniques about driving.Hector is my trainer throughout and possess awesome teaching skills. Very perfect in identifying the gaps and make sure we learn them. He makes the learning process easy, removes your fear factor and at the same time teach you that all required to be safe driver. His encouraging words to be successful in learning and driving is one of the key factor that drives you.Yolanda - scheduling expert and understands the need and schedules.Brandi - examiner, very clear in providing instructions and precise in setting up the expectations. Highlights the learning area post examination.
