From students who took our Defensive Driving Courses in Iowa.
Not bad; I liked the humor, and I liked that your program was less visually cluttered than most other traffic school sites I looked at.
Candice L., IA
A nice way to learn at my own pace.
Diane S., IA
Liked the course.. being able to complete it on my own time is a big plus. Plus it was very informative and entertaining.
Joel I., IA
Very grateful for this format – as a single mother with two kids I could do this from the comfort of my home, rather than figuring out what to do with the kids while I sat in a classroom!
Barbara P., IA
Amazing. Simply amazing. I have never experienced a perfect blend of fun and learning like this before. I had great laughs along the way and learned a handful of vital new things concerning traffic rules and road safety that I was personally unaware of prior to taking this course. Hands down one of the most entertaining and informative programs out there. I am definitely recommending this driving school to everyone.
Carl I., IA
I really enjoyed the course. It was very informative and I enjoyed the video’s. It was entertaining as well and educational. It kept your interest in the various subject matters.
Elizabeth M., IA
Very informative. In that driving is a privilege, all drivers today should be required to take this course periodically. This should be made a law. There is no excuse for driving while impaired, road rage, and the breaking the rules. Just think…how many lives would be saved if delinquent drivers were made to take and pass this course having learned to drive the right way.
Joseph B., IA
Excellent course, enjoyed taking it.
Bessalel Y., IA
I thank you for making this available for me. The reminders were valuable making me more aware of situations, and events I may have become lax in regarding safety on the road.
Joseph E., IA
Best class ever. It makes the best out of a bad situation and made the punishment more bearable!

This is the best online driving school course I have taken. Although I have not taken many, it was the funniest and most entertaining. Believe it or not, but I learned a bit more due to the fact that it was entertaining.
Patri P., IA
This made traffic school a breeze and was totally worth it!
Megan F., IA
Great job for people that need to do the course at home and can not get to an all-day classroom.
