My oldest of three teens just went through the driving portion of the school because she did the online and book stuff elsewhere as part of her homeschool curriculum. Our middle teen is doing the online course through Love’s right now.
We loved so many things about Love’s for the eldest.
First, they were great at fitting us in as we had made a couple of timing mistakes and had a deadline before our student’s permit expired.
Second, they kindly encouraged us to make the DMV appointment A.S.A.P. so that appointments would be still available. DMV was running out of appointments in that limited window we had left, and Love’s helped us delay no further.
Third, they were willing to work with us to make the driving lessons happen when we needed them, and they were very clear and helpful so that I had time to put them on my phone and computer calendars. What patience and kindness!
Fourth, they picked our student up at our house! I thought I would have to drive her to their location, and was worried about how I would fit that in.
Fifth, they were clear about what she would need with her when they came for her.
Sixth, they called to remind and confirm every appointment, each time reminding us what she would need with her when they came.
Seventh, their instructors were kind and respectful. Someone told me that they usually have the same instructor for all three, two-hour lessons normally. However, we were in a crunch, and I love that our student got three different teachers. She got to benefit from the strengths of three lovely people!
Lastly, and maybe best of all, I was extremely thankful for the notes each teacher provided. Each one had a sort of form with skills in which students should be proficient. The first day, I was very proud of our child’s humility, sharing that the instructor encouraged her to improve on the exact same things her father and I have nagged her about! How great is that?!!!
The things we were worried about, she heard from her instructor too! She stopped arguing with us right then! Hurray!
Each teacher corrected her consistent with one another, and us, and we saw improvement after every lesson. We are very pleased indeed!
What’s more, the day after her last two-hour lesson, she passed her driver’s test at DMV! She is now getting herself to work and church, which are pretty close to home. What a blessing!
