Scott is a very professional and friendly instructor, he gave me confident and improve my drving skill. Thank you very much Scott, I pass my road test. There is nothing more for me to say how good he is. Just choose them, five hundred percent highly recommend!


Scott has been a great instructor for my son. He's learning a lot and is very flexible with our schedule. He is also great at communicating and responding to my questions.


I'm so happy that I found Scott Mackay for driving lessons for my daughter. It was the best investment. She was such a nervous driver and having a qualified teacher was just what she needed. She passed her driving test on the first try and is doing great. Thank you Scott.
