Inexperienced Orientation Testimonials
Very pleased with the quality of instruction, instructors, and my trainer. Exactly what I wanted, hoped for as a new driver.
Accelerate Student Driver
I really learned a lot. The instructors and trainers were very professional, clear, and concise with their instructions. They were very knowledgeable and I am happy with my experience.
Accelerate Student Driver
I was fairly confident in my road skills prior to the accelerate program. The driving portion was very comprehensive, however, I was able to complete all the maneuvers without any difficulty. The classroom instruction was where I learned more than expected. I enjoyed both aspects and think it is a good opportunity for any driver, new or experienced, to hone their skills.
