  1. being this our last class , we should get contact information for some of our class mates don’t you think.

  2. I really liked the class last night. I especially liked how you talked about the physics of the car when turning. That was quite interesting and I found myself thinking about it during my lessons. Now that the class is coming to an end, I must say that I am happy that I attended. I learned so much in such a short period of time. Kye, you truly are one of a kind.

  3. Lesson 9 .Great Class..Its Tells You How To Become A Good Instructor And A Successful One..The Videos Were Great..Most Driving School Teaches A Different Way Of Parallel Parking And Three Point Turn Or Broken U Turn. Great Class..
