I went into driving school with zero to no behind the wheel practice. However, with Mina as my instructor I was able to make enormous amount of progress after the first drive. He gave me many useful tips and tricks along the way. He would correct me on my mistakes, but would not be negative about them. Which was very helpful especially since this was pretty much my first time driving. After 3 lessons I felt that the progress I had made was incredible. Mina definitely prepared me on what to expect and to better my driving. On my fourth drive, I felt confident going into the test because of Mina’s thorough preparation and I passed my test. 10/10 would recommend.

I was very happy with my driving lessons with Mina. He taught me a lot of tricks and gave a lot of tips to ensure for safe driving. I didn't even know how to drive and was super nervous about driving but now I'm not afraid. The stop and go driving school is one of the best places to approach for a beginner, the classes provided are very helpful in learning road rules. They make learning a fun experience.

This school has helped me improve and hone my driving skills so much. Mina B was absolutely amazing at helping me throughout our drives. He would notice everything I was struggling with and helped me fix it to become a safer and more efficient driver. Any problems I had with braking smoothly or turning and adjusting my car were rectified quickly through his instruction. Tara S also really helped me become a much better parker by giving small tips and tricks that improved my parking skills greatly. The instructors here a really good at their job and highly recommend this school.

We are very happy with Stop N Go Driving. The team was easy to work with. The pricing was reasonable. But, we really appreciated instructor Ben Luoma’s patience and care with our daughter. Our daughter needed step by step instructions and extra time to put the various driving puzzle pieces together. It wasn’t easy at times but Ben diligently worked with her until she was able to complete the program. Our daughter also enjoyed having Ben as her teacher and felt she benefited greatly from his instructions. We are very satisfied and have signed our second child up. We naturally asked for Ben. Give the man a raise!

I took four lessons with Stop and Go, under the careful direction of Moria. The lessons were incredibly helpful to both my mechanical skills behind the wheel and my knowledge of the rules of the road. Moria was meticulous in her advising, making it her mission to have me graduate from the program knowing every possible thing about safe conduct in a motor vehicle, no matter how minute the detail. Entering the program I was a completely new driver; leaving the program I feel confident enough to drive by myself. If you wish to have your son or daughter learn driving skills and qualify for their license knowing they will be safe and well-versed in all things automotive, I would personally recommend this school!
