My teen son had 12 hours driving with Steven. I bought 12 hours as is recommended in Europe and I think, it was a very good decision. After 12 hours and driving with me I could see, after 2 months, the confidence in the driving of my son.
Everybody at school was very helpful. Thank you Steven, for the perfect service.

Excellent company!! We had just moved to California from New Jersey and our son was of age to drive.  You would think that each state had the same process for learning to drive....but NO!! Behind the Wheel made the process smooth and simple!! I will definitely be using them for my daughter when she is of age!!

All of the teachers are fantastic.  Scheduling is easy, and the entire staff is very responsive, accommodating and professional.
We've had 3 of our children use Behind the Wheel, and they are excellent drivers as a result.
There's nothing like having a 3rd party reinforce the rules of the road.
We will be back for our last teenage driver!
