Description

I Drive Smart is the premier driver-education company in the region. We are the only company where police officers provide 100% of the instruction. That’s right, driver’s ed taught by cops! Our top priority is smart decisions, good judgment, and creating a safe driver for life. The best evidence that our approach works is that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found in 2015 that students trained by other programs were cited 54% more often for moving violations than I Drive Smart alumni. Our state-of-the-art online system streamlines the process, from registration to scheduling to certification, creating a hassle-free experience for busy parents. Check our schedules online (www.idrivesmart.com) to find a convenient location and time (including evenings and weekends) for your student to take in-class or behind-the-wheel instruction...or call us at 855-IDS-COPS....

As soon as my sons were old enough to get their learner's permits we bought a package that included the required classroom instruction plus six behind the wheel sessions each for two kids. Scheduling the actual sessions was difficult, the dates and times in Arlington are limited and they fill up fast. It turns out that the company likes it that way -- if you don't finish the classroom instruction ...

Overall, the instructors were excellent. One, would not let the students turn right on red which I find odd since it is legal and it would have been beneficial for them to learn how to do it safely. It also would have been helpful if the instructor's badge number was included in the student's account for each class. That would have allowed me to sign up for the same instructor for subsequent class...

I really liked the ease of booking sessions on the website and all the electronic reminders about classes. It was nice to know the cars were all company owned and well-marked and that the instructors were all former cops. It was also nice to be able to review the class notes and comments from each of the instructors and the feedback my daughter received was helpful. This driving program is definit...

The summer classes scheduled at my daughter's school in Alexandria, Va were fine. We purchased a package which included Behind the Wheel instruction as well. As my daughter's Senior Year offered very little free time, she was unable to find open time slots in the eastern part of Fairfax County which matched her free time. When we attempted to schedule this summer, we were told the contract period ...

IDS was responsive and flexible when we needed to change appointments on short notice. While we were responsible for paying for the lesson if we cancelled within 3 days of the scheduled lesson, they always sent a notice out to clients advertising the slot so that someone else could fill it and we wouldn't be out the money or the time. Instructors were professional and punctual, and they provided g...
