Izzy's driving lessons with Glenn were exceptional! Glenn not only taught my daughter to drive safely in many driving conditions, but gave her (and her parents) confidence in her driving abilities! I would highly recommend Mid-America Academy of Driving, especially Glenn. I definitely plan on using them when my other daughter gets her permit.
