What Our Clients Say About Us

  • Mr. Faulkner was my high school driver's ed teacher at Sun Valley. About 21 years ago I took my lessons with him and still to this day I still remember his advice when driving always look ahead of you and not in front of you. Also remember the times he was really patient with the students more patient and I could be LOL and he always took us out to lunch nobody ever did not eat. He always really wanted you to succeed and is such a cool nice guy. My goddaughter in two more years will be doing her driver's education classes I will only recommend mr. Faulkner

  • Faulkner's Driving School is the best driving school to trust with your child. They set wonderful foundations and their driving lessons are customized to fit your child's ability and comfort, while still opening their eyes to the possibilities and capabilities of other drivers on the road. My daughter greatly enjoyed her time driving and taking the class.
