Sandra Francis:

They didn't tell me it was like a subscription plan, I started my driving lessons which was supposed to be for 20 days but I did the indoor prstucpr for 10 days before going to camp only to come back to continue and they told me it's impossible to continue cos my time had expired and I was confused I wasn't told this when registering and the boss is so rude and decided not to take my calls anymore. I only went on the road one day and was been embarrassed by taskforce or local government people that the school owe them some money and I didn't drive up to 30 minutes and my tutor said I was done for the day and that's all.

From the last review, you had better check with the school carefully before paying, like what's included in the package and in case of problems, how long will the course expire, etc.
