Thanks again for the time you spent with My daughter just finished her lessons with Andy and he was fantastic. From the minute we contacted him until the permit handover he was responsive, communicative, flexible and accommodating. Most importantly, my daughter really liked him and now feels confident and comfortable behind the wheel. We had used a different company for our older daughter and the difference was remarkable in every aspect: communication, lessons, flexibility, etc. We will be using Andy for a refresher and to take our daughter to the test (as we did for our older daughter). He is great to work with — highly recommended.

Thanks again for the time you spent with Brendan. He really thought you were a great teacher. He has been driving all day!
Andy is really wonderful. He is patient and calm (both good traits when teaching a newbie how to drive.) Brendan had high praise for him as well. I highly recommend Andy for your children’s driving instruction!

Andy taught Thomas to drive and was awesome. He has a great personality, easy going, professional, and flexible. What I liked best was at the end he gave us a list of things he felt Thomas needed to work on. I don’t recommend easily but I HIGHLY recommend Andy Wyrtzen.

Andy is great at encouraging the new driver of the household while at the same time calming the stressed parents on the other end. My daughter felt comfortable with Andy & she always came home feeling happy & confident with her progress. He is punctual – always there when he says he will be there. An overall great experience! I would recommend him to anyone!

If any of my friends have kids learning to drive, Andy taught ‘The Boy’ and we are very happy with the outcome. We recommend Roadmaster not just because he is a friend but he made him comfortable behind the wheel from the very first lesson.

This was our first experience as parents in having to send our child to driving school. Andy made Antonio’s driving school experience very pleasant. His patience and guidance afforded Antonio the opportunity to start off “on the road” with a positive and confident note. Thank you, Mr. Wyrtzen! We would certainly recommend Roadmaster Driving Academy to anyone looking for a positive driving school experience!

Roadmaster Driving Academy provided a relaxed learning environment for me to learn how to drive, something that in the past made me nervous. I felt very comfortable driving and learning all the techniques and instructions Andy taught me. I feel prepared to continue learning the rules of the road with my parents, and cannot wait to get my license in the near future 🙂 I would highly recommend Roadmaster Driving Academy and Andy.

I have known Andy for years and never thought I would be using him to teach my 16 year old how to drive. As most parents I was A nervous wreck sending her out for the first time. Andy went above and beyond to assure me she was safe and doing well. My daughter enjoy her lesson with Andy very much, he took the time and help her learn a lot. He handles it all! validating your permit, setting up the drivers test on her birthday. I highly recommend this company to anyone who’s learning how to drive or has a child learning how to drive.

Not only is Andy a great instructor but he also went “above and beyond” to help me replace my permit that I had lost. It was a complicated situation because I lost it while I was 16 and replaced it while I was turning 18. Andy was patient and guided me through the process, he didn’t just leave me hanging. I would highly recommend Andy and Roadmaster Driving Academy.

Thank you for all of the skills you have given Thomas to help him to succeed in this very important life skill. Your comforting words, and calming demeanor enabled Thomas to focus on the task at hand and served to decrease his anxiety level. Your willingness to take the extra time with him went a very long way. It is wonderful to see Thomas was so relaxed and beaming like this.

My daughter had a wonderful driving experience with Andy of Roadmaster Driving Academy. Andy was very personable and made my daughter feel comfortable driving with him. If we had any issues with the timing for driving lessons, Andy was very cooperative and adjusted to our needs. My daughter very much liked that Roadmaster picked her up for practice and then took her for her road test in their vehicle since my husband and i were not available. I recommend this company very highly and am grateful to my friends for recommending Andy to us.

My son thought Andy was a great instructor. He was patient gave very specific feedback to me (as the parent) following the lesson. My son, who had been out “on the road” with another driving school said that Andy taught him things he should have learned with the other school, but didn’t. Highly recommend!

Roadmaster Driving Academy was very reliable and trustworthy throughout my time dealing with them. Prices were tough to beat and the people were as nice as could be. Andy did an excellent job working with us and teaching the basic driving principles. Would highly recommend to others. Keep up the good work!

I appreciated Mr. Wyrtzen’s flexibility in picking Zack up after his track practices and his willingness to give him driving lessons at night. He made Zack feel comfortable to he really wasn’t nervous especially when it came time to drive on the highway. I will definitely be using his services again when my youngest daughter turns 16.

Andy was great with my son and went out of his way to fit us into his schedule on short notice. After the six hours of driving classes my son came back confident and ready to start practicing with us. Andy also took the time to explain to me what he needed to work and set up his driving test well in advance of his birthday. I would recommend Andy to anyone with a new driver.

Andy was patient, helpful, pleasant and comfortable to work with. My son enjoyed his driving time with Andy. He picked him up from wherever he was located if he was at work in Allendale or Park Ridge and wanted to dropped off at a different location it was never a problem or concern. He was very flexible with our schedule and made it work for all parties. He got all the necessary paperwork and the red tags for the car and explained everything thoroughly. He gave excellent feedback for what we should work on with him as he practices his driving skills. My son gained a lot of confidence driving with Andy. I would recommend him highly to anyone who needs a calm, certified, pleasant and competent instructor.
