Average Student Rating

My experience with RVA driving academy was wonderful! I took in-class instruction and behind the wheel. Mrs. Darlene was a great teacher and Chuck was a pleasure to drive with. RVA driving academy gives you a very accommodating and easy experience.
Was concerned about my son going to both a school and driving academy during COVID. He also was a timid/careful driver. The online school was great and our instructor Tim Finn was outstanding. Tim was great to work with.
Like a lot of other teens, I was a bit nervous about doing behind the wheel. I expected my drives to be stressful and awkward, but I was proven very, very wrong. My driving instructor was amazing, she did a fantastic job balancing the actual instructions.
