Dennis was very patient with me. I scheduled the 3 hour session and it was all worth it! With no experience in driving manual, I came out feeling confident in buying my first stick shift! I highly recommend him!

Great instructor with a lot of patience. I had a rough start but he kept me motivated. I feel like I can hop into manual car and go on my own after their 3 hour lesson.

Dennis was a great instructor. He was very patient and enjoys teaching. After the three hour lesson, I feel confident and safe to drive a manual on my own. I expected to get frustrated stalling, but that never happened. Dennis uses a very well kept Mini Cooper for lessons. The course he uses is in a very nice tech campus that was empty on the weekend. I'm glad I did the lesson on a weekend so I didn't have to think about traffic while learning. Once I felt comfortable, we did some driving on busier streets. My wife was jealous of the lesson and I bet she'll do it too someday. This is a great class for somebody considering buying a car with a manual transmission, traveling internationally and renting cars, or just to learn a new skill for fun.
