Review №1

My daughter completed the online class in November and 10 months later she has yet to be able to complete her observation hours with them so she can get her license. She was asked to observe today and when we arrived the office was closed and the instructor doesnt respond back to messages. I have asked for them to email/contact me since I paid for the course and I obviously have to drive her to classes since she doesnt have her license and the instructor continues to reach out to my daughter instead. I also think that its ridiculous that if you call them their message says they will respond back within a week.

Overall this driving school is amazing. It is straightforward, you learn everything there is to know and even beyond that. Not only did we all get to learn a lot but the instructor (Mrs. Valentine) makes you feel like youre not just s student. She made the class go by really quickly and I regret not asking more questions about her life because it seemed like she has an interesting life.

I took my Behind the Wheel hours with Instructor Heidi who might be the most helpful person I’ve ever met, not to be dramatic. When I did something right, she left me know in words of encouragement. In times when I made errors, she didn’t scream, but instead reminded me of what I could be doing and some tricks that help to remember them. While normally a very nervous person, (just overall pretty hard on myself), I found calamity in Instructor Heidi.In our hours spent driving, not only did I find confidence in my driving, but within myself. Today, I took my drivers test for the first time remembering what Instructor Heidi told me and passed. I truly believe that her tips, and advice helped me in the end.So, if you’re looking at reviews wondering if City Driving Express is worth it, take it from me, who experienced it first hand, that you won’t regret it.

Review №4

If your a parent recommend you get your son or daughter in this course its way better than in school drivers Ed its way shorter but you learn more from it

Review №5

I’m really upset with the service my son received. Every other school my father and I called says there are 35-40 questions and this school has 100 questions. They say it’s a state requirement but my father, who’s an attorney has been researching and knows someone who works at the dmv and they said something doesn’t seem right. I’m really disappointed. I wouldn’t dare recommend this driving school. I feel it’s set up for the kids to fail, that way we can pay additional money. It’s sad and very pathetic. Smh

Review №6

I went to this place and it taught me to be more defensive than safe, and it also gets you prepared for all the tests that it presents at you. This is the place you need to get start drivers Ed rather than school. It’s that good

Review №7

This school is great 10/10 would recommend it. They are so patient and understanding, they are doing great with the Covid precautions. The learning process is great as well my instructor gave us examples and personal experiences which made it more interesting, more easier to understand what we were learning.

Review №8

The teachers here will get you ready for the tests and the finals and they will also help you be a leader in driving not a follower. They will also teach you to be a defensive driver. This is the best driving school.

Review №9

This school is great even with COVID-19 they managed to give a fast and easy understanding on the driving rules and everything you should know about driving. They made it easy on you telling you everything you need to Write down for quiz they mainly only went over the things on quiz, and there was some fun work we did. 10/10 would recommend.

Review №10

The teacher is very helpful and made learning easy and fun definitely recommend this school

Review №11

City Xpress driving school has many easy opportunities to learn to drive as a kid or an adult. Their classes are very flexible. Even during this entire pandemic, they have provided online classes with flexible schedules if you are unable to attend a session. The instructor was very kind and helpful and clearly wanted what’s best for the class. She would answer her phone at all times if we had questions and would treat every question as a good question. The class was very fun and easy to understand online and it definitely would have been fun in person. The classes are easy to sign up for and complete as long as the effort it there. The people are very kind and helpful and the class overall is worth it for the price you pay! I personally loved it.

Review №12

City Xpress is a great driving school 10/10 I would recommend it to anyone. Despite of Covid-19 it was a easy learning environment virtually. My instructor would cover the lessons and anything that was going to be on the quiz. Definitely worth the price.

Review №13

The School was great. Even despite of Covid-19 they did an amazing job virtually. The Virtual schooling was no issue for me. My instructor was great and covered lessons quick and simple. City Xpress was great and easy.

Review №14

Scheduled a class and a behind the wheel session here 3 times and every time I showed up, doors were locked & no one was there. Every time I waited for 20-30 minutes calling and emailing and nobody replied until hours later. Always rude on the phone if anyone answers at all and extremely unprofessional.

Review №15

Overall, my experience with City Xpress was amazing! Ms. Heidi was the best and taught very well and is a great teacher. I did my class through zoom and she made everything work perfectly and was very patient with students! I am definitely going to have my brother sign up for this Drivers Ed. when he is of age. Great school!

Review №16

Teacher was very helpful makes sure you understand the content we had group work and different things to help making our learning easier and overall the teacher really works with kids would recommend

Review №17

Even with covid and donning it through online I felt that my teacher really strict but in a very good why and only wanted the best for the students. But I had a good experience and learned really what I need especially with the notes she give you everything you need for each test and is always reminding us what’s coming up so that we are prepared for everything that’s on the tests.

Review №18

I liked Heidi and the class very much. With current circumstances, I had to do this class via zoom. However, I feel like each class I learned a lot and at a quick pace. The environment even over a zoom call was very friendly and chill. I completed this class within a months time yet it felt so short. Having a short number of people in the class made it easy for us to get along and communicate. Overall, I am thankful to have completed drivers ed thoroughly and quickly, even during such a difficult time as now.

If I could give it no stars I would

Review №20

City express driving school even though covid is going on was overall a great school i loved the way we did class on the weekend in the morning and i especially loved my instructure she made sure to include everything that would be on the quiz if you were paying attention and did her best to repeat anything and review everything if needed. she was very understanding about any internet problems since it was online as long as you made an was very easy to get ahold of her to ask any questions or let her know if you would be missing class. overall very simple class made it easy to get my permit and learn anything i would need to know while im driving through town. it included important street signs and the various situations and how to handle them without freaking out or getting into an accident. very much worth the price. loved it

This school was very helpful the Intructor was good teacher she knew what she was talking about. Also it was a good place to get along with people to meet new people. When we would study it was very helpful the teacher didn’t make it so boring she made it fun, when we played games that helped us study made me want to be part of it and I would learn more. Then if we got stuck on a question or we had some questions she answered it and explained it to us step by step.
