Testimonials

Michelle T, Boulder
Our son doesn’t like many activities outside of his comfort zone. This was his first day driving and the instructor made him feel confident and empowered. He got him to laugh.
Laura H, Westminster
The behind-the-wheel and defensive driving instructors are top notch! Our son learned a lot and gained a lot of confidence from the experience. And he crushed his driver’s test! Thanks Drive Safe!
Shay T, Littleotn/Lakewood
My teenager had great instructors for his day of Defensive Skills Day! He really enjoyed the entire three hours of instruction and I think he is a more confident driver as a result of taking this hands on class.
Cathy U, Highlands Ranch
I like that you can do (almost) everything at DriveSafe….testing, classes, behind the wheel, etc. There is little to no need to go to the actual DMV!!! The instructors are very helpful and encouraging to the students.
Carmina E, Aurora
Driving instructor did an amazing job. Above and beyond. Exceeded my expectations and made my son’s driving experience exceptional!
Jacob W, Littleton/Lakewood
DMV was so slow in processing our son’s driver license application that we got down to two days before he was supposed to move to college and then they told us he needed to do a drive test. We called DriveSafe and they got him scheduled for the following day. They were very nice and helpful, he passed, and now he’s off to his college adventure. Thanks DriveSafe!
Carrie R, Wheat Ridge

We are very pleased and will enroll our son at the end of this year or beginning of 2021.

My daughter attended the Defensive Skills Day and it went well. I got to ride with her at the end when I returned, and I have to admit, I was very shocked at how much she improved! She drove me through the timed obstacle course and her skill level blew me away. She said she has much more confidence in driving now. This course is very well worth the money and I highly recommend it to all parents.

I liked the course. It taught me things I’ve never heard of like the IPDE process. Some strengths are they go in to good detail when explaining things.

“The course was quite enjoyable. One of my favorite parts of the course was that I could complete it at my own pace at home. This required me to be responsible in completing the course and retaining the information, which I liked. The tests after every chapter also helped in the retention of information…”

Thank you for making our experience easy and we will absolutely be using DriveSafe Driving Schools for all our bus training.”
James, Field Safety Lead
“In order to enhance the safety training of our staff, we contacted DriveSafe to provide an upgrade on their driving abilities. The session consisted of classroom and in-vehicle time. Our instructor made the classroom session enjoyable and easy to sit through, which was much appreciated and refreshing as the classroom sessions are typically dry and uninteresting. The in-vehicle session was a great reminder of the how we can all end up with some bad habits and how to correct them. We will definitely use DriveSafe again for training as the need arises.”
