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!

Wish I could give ZERO stars!! Paid $425 for child to take Segment 1 and was to start at the beginning of the month. Had a major shake up in our schedule(due to COVID) three days before she was to start. She was going to miss the first few classes so I tried to reschedule and they want over $200 to put her in another class in addition to what I already paid. I let the company know that she would not be in class and we would refuse to pay the additional cost. Was told too bad. You need to pay the fee or she wouldn’t be placed in another segment 1. I was told this is their policy and after asking to speak to someone else, I was placed on hold and then told that the other person in the office agreed that I had to pay the additional fee or she would not be allowed access. I again tried to explain that this was COVID related and inquired about some flexibility in their policy. Was told, sorry. Even though I contacted the company before the class even began, her friends contacted her, and showed her that the teacher was talking about the fact the she wasn’t in class. The teacher(and I use that word loosely)of online course, was talking about my kid and how irresponsible it was to miss classes. She continued to speak badly at the beginning of each class and berate my daughter because she was not present. She did this for 3 days. Not only is this completely unprofessional, her absence was because of COVID!!! I cannot begin to express, as a current high school teacher, just how many people I am going to tell about this company. DO NOT USE COURTESY DRIVING SCHOOL. They will simply take your money and then require more before allowing access to “online driving school.”
