"Malaika was super nice, helpful and accommodating. I would highly recommend this school.
- Kier
Having several kids go through the drivers ed process, I have learned the importance of using a company that holds everyone accountable while working on a common goal of preparing our kids for driving on their own. Not an easy task. Thank you Malika!
Time to drive driving school was very informative for an adult driving class... and highly recommend everyone west of the Mississippi.

My experience at Time to Drive Driver Training School was absolutely great. Before I attended the class, the thought of being behind the wheel frightened me. After driving with Malaika, I feel much better when it comes to being behind the wheel, she definitely boosted my confidence. Malaika is great at articulating the type of maneuvers she wants you to accomplish and the rules of the road.
