“Learning how to drive is a scary thing, especially for me considering I felt anxiety driving around a parking lot when I first got my permit. I owe my driving skills to Mr. Kowalski. He is a great instructor for many reasons― he will continue to go over anything with you until you are more than confident with whatever the task may be. When you make a mistake he does not make you feel bad about that mistake, but communicates with you on where you made your error and how you can improve your skills until you feel confident. Within each session you learn so much about driving. He does a great job balancing teaching new skills while additionally reviewing past skills so you are ready for your test. By your last session you will feel confident enough to pass your test. I highly recommend Mr. Kowalski as your driver instructor for his great driving knowledge and the positive environment he offers to make driving a great time!”

“Travis Kowalski is a great instructor. My daughter felt very comfortable learning how to drive with him. He was very patient with her and made the experience enjoyable. He also really did a great job of building her confidence as she was very nervous about driving. I too had lots of reservations about my daughter’s driving skills; however, Travis convinced me to give her as many opportunities to drive as possible. I finally had to let my baby grow up and get behind the wheel. My daughter not only passed her drivers test but scored quite well on the test because TRAVIS taught her the RULES of the road. The lady at the DMV was impressed with her driving. Today she is a very conscientious driver because she had an instructor who instilled in her that safety is crucial. Thanks Travis!”
