We train Rocklin each student on an personal basis. By the end of each lesson, we talk to parents what their youngster needs to practice so they can have the self esteem to continue with the class.

Furthermore, we have a "pay as you go" package to accommodate parents that cannot find a way to place down a one one time payment. Classes are spread out in a 6 month period each month until they're able to take the driving test.
