I highly recommend Scott and his new adventure! He has taken my daughter out for driving lessons many times. He is a very patient passenger/instructor. I spoke with him a few times about concerns I had with some of her habits, not only did he work on them with her, but he also gave me some tips on how to correct her...patiently 😊 He has been very invested in her becoming a great driver, and will be taking her out for one more lesson a few days before she takes the road test to make sure she is good and ready!
