"Dear Young Drivers – Just a note to say how well treated I was by my instructor Chris today for my driving lesson. I am a senior who has interacted with many different people in my career. In my experience Chris was truly a most gentle, informative and helpful guide. He put me immediately at ease and was able to gently correct a few week points. Thank you again Young Drivers and especially Chris" - Olga Z, Victoria
