In addition teaching the proper methods of driving, our Loomis students understand the rules of the road and learn defensive strategies. Our driving school has a specific manner in which helps every single student to comprehend the different driving conditions they might encounter on the road.


Our method consists of 3 to 4 driving sessions that are organized, well designed and extremely thorough. See "teen driving" for explanation of lessons.

We train Loomis each student on an individual basis. After each lesson, we speak with parents what their son or daughter needs to practice so they can develop the confidence to carry on with the class.


Furthermore, we have a "pay as you go" program to provide parents that can't manage to pay a one single payment. Courses are spread out in a 6 month period on a monthly basis until they're ready to take the driving test.
