zero! Teacher unprofessional, on his phone majority of class, drives scheduled preferentially and way behind due to multiple reasons. Called office was almost hung up on by Ruth b/c she knows teacher then office “supervisor” Mary basically said you are at our mercy…too bad. I work full time and don’t have the time to take him to classes/drives for 6 +weeks. Just advocating for my son…now let’s see how badly they treat him in class…so unprofessional

Since my daughter took Segments 1&2 at a different school close to home, I can only comment on the driving test, which she took with Karen at the Lake Orion location. What an absolute gem! The nicest, most down to earth, and kindest lady. Very professional, explained short comings, and gave extra tips for improvement. She went above and beyond. A real rock star!! I would recommend Karen and Courtesy Driving School to every young driver. Thank you Karen!! Thank you Courtesy!

The test instructor's name is Karen and it's very fitting. I would have loved to have taken pictures of my daughters parking jobs that Karen considered to be fails, but you aren't allowed taking pictures. A fail = more money for this place. I will gladly give my money to a quality school instead of this Karen again.
