“Our family was incredibly pleased with Virtual Drive for both of our teenagers. Each one took the course and did great on their driving tests. We had no problems with the website or instructions. Everything was easy to understand, comprehend and follow. We were asked by several families in our community what course we used and we were happy to recommend Virutal Drive. We also have 3 younger boys who will need this course in the next several year and we will for sure be using Virtual Drive with them. I was also very pleased with email correspondence and the quickness with which my questions were answered.”
“My husband and I chose Virtual Drive of Texas for both of our children. Our family had great success with this parent-taught program as it was very simple to follow and very detailed in providing crucial lessons regarding driving. Also, I had questions regarding some forms with my son and they were extremely kind and helpful. My son has been driving for two years and is an excellent driver. My daughter is completing her course at the present time and I feel confident that she will be ready to hit the roads when she finishes. I highly recommend this parent-taught course to anyone that is getting their child ready for the next big stage of their life. ”
