Throughout the entire process, he went out of his` way to make this confusing and often nerve-wracking experience very easy and pleasurable for all of us.

  • This driving school really went out of their way to help me to get my permit on time.  I contacted them only 2 weeks before the required 6 months before my 17th birthday in order to get my license in time.  They worked extremely hard and were able to fit me into their schedule quickly so that I could get my license as soon as possible.  Their staff are extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. Thanks again AisKae.

  • Aiskae Driving School has made me feel comfortable and confident while getting my permit and my license. I had no driving experience going into the school. The instructors were reliable and trustworthy. They made me feel safe out on the roads. When time came for my license they gave me a freshening up course to make sure I was ready. Thank you to John and everyone else in the Aiskae staff for making this experience one to never forget.

Thanks to all of you for being so courteous on my first contact via telephone, when I left the documents, for always being so accommodating to my son's schedule, and for bringing him home for me a few times.  It was a pleasurable experience and I am glad I chose your school to help my son get his license.

  • My son Michael Cresci took driving lessons from Aiskae Driving School, Anthony Scarpelli was his instructor and he did a great job. He was very reliable and took care of everything necessary for him to get his permit.
