Dear Ottawa Driving School,

I wanted to give some positive feedback about my driving instructor.

I was an extremely nervous driver and had failed my G2 test twice before taking lessons with my instructor, Majed. I was directed to him when I called the driving school and asked very specifically for an instructor who was good with anxious drivers. My experience was exceptional.

Majed not only had a comforting energy to be around which relaxed me and helped me to focus on specific skills and techniques, but he was also very engaged and constructively critical in my areas of weakness. When i was discouraged with my lack of knowledge or inability to properly apply skills, he was very calm and would redirect my stress by inviting me to "try again" until I got my techniques correct. He would remind me when I forgot to apply a skill without being judgemental and maintained a positive attitude insisting that I would get it right with practice.

I would recommend him as a teacher to anyone looking to feel safer behind the wheel or pass a road test. He gave me the road knowledge which eased my anxieties around the idea of driving, and allowed me to focus on the actual driving itself. His teaching manor was clear and consistent and after passing my G2 today I couldn't be more appreciative for his patience and guidance.

Please give him a generous raise he's THE BEST.

Dear Ottawa Driving School,

TI am a parent of 2 students that Majed taught for driving class. One was writing a G2 and one doing the G exam.

Majed, was phenomenal, patient, clear in his instructions, very punctual, accommodating to our complex schedule and very creative. Majed would instruct in different methods if the first method was not effective. He is very confident in his skills which definitely transferred to the students and he built confidence in their driving abilities.

I will always highly recommend Majed.

Dear Ottawa Driving School,

This is to advise you that I passed my driving test this morning. The lessons which John gave me were instrumental in helping me regain my self-confidence and overcome my nervousness. He is a wonderful caring instructor and I have no hesitation in recommending him to my friends. He is totally dedicated, and understands the stress we experience. I think it is important to share positive experiences to encourage others who are going through stressful situations. Driving tests are stressful for every age group, but especially for seniors.

Dear Ottawa Driving School,

I wanted to express my sincere gratitude to the Ottawa Driving School for their upstanding services and exceptional classes. I had the opportunity to take Christine’s classroom theory at your Walkley location (July 29th to Aug 1st 2013) followed by Keith’s private driving lessons, both exceeding my expectations.

I’m 28 years old and have had a fear of driving, which stopped me from getting my driver’s license as a teenager. However, this past summer, I had come to a point in my career were driving was becoming a need so I decided to take lessons, quite reluctantly. I had heard about your school through a friend, and decided to register with you. Your special summer price was an added bonus! I was not only impressed with my classroom instructor’s knowledge, but also by her patience, kindness and humor. It helped alleviate some of my fears.

Then came the time to enter a car and start my private driving lessons, with my assigned driver, Keith. I was very anxious with the idea of driving, and he helped me feel at ease. Prior to my first lesson, I was only able to go as fast as 10km/h in a parking lot, but even that made me very nervous. He was very patient with me and also very funny, which helped me be a little less scared. I could also tell he was very experienced and knew what he was doing. He assured me that I would learn how to drive by the end of our 10 hours of driving.

I NEVER thought this could be possible, but I am able to drive and feel confident about my G2 test (with a little more practice of course). I was terrified with the idea of being on the road and now, on the contrary, I feel confident, safe and even excited by the idea. I’d like to thank Keith once again for all his help. It sure made a difference in my life. I will be sure to recommend the Ottawa Driving School to anybody who asks!Thank you once again for a job extremely well done,
