Worth every penny. If you actually want to learn how to drive you need to drive with Mr. T. I'd previously put my daughter through TWO driving schools before this but BOTH failed to give my daughter any ACTUAL instruction. However, after just a few lessons with Mr. T., my daughter became confident and knew exactly what she was doing behind the wheel. Mr. T. was thorough in his instruction, relaxed so students didn't get nervous, and he gave each student ample time on the road. He has gone above and beyond as an instructor. In many instances he has even gone over the time we paid for just to give my daughter extra practice with parking, etc. He is the best driving instructor you will find. He genuinely cares about his students and dedicates himself to ensuring they know how to drive safely.

We were very happy with Ashburn Driving School - from the first phone call to learn about the programs and pricing, to the final lessons - first rate operation! Our 18-year old son didn't have his license yet and was a bit nervous about driving. We opted for private lessons first and then the adult driving program. The students don't just drive around - they practice hazards, on/off ramps, and all the complications of driving in LoCo. Thanks for the great service!

BEST driving school EVER! My youngest daughter just completed her course with Mr. T. and is a better driver than I, and I have had my license for 30 years! I HIGHLY recommend this school. She is much more relaxed and confident. I noticed a difference after her second class. I want to send my 19 year old for a refresher. :)

Mr. Tulloch is an amazing and patient instructor. He taught my daughter and niece together. Both girls were extremely nervous, but by the time the first lesson was over both were feeling so much more confident. They looked forward to every lesson and have remarked that Mr. Lyle was their favorite teacher ever out of every subject. As a parent, I appreciated his flexibility and kindness in teaching my daughter. She was excited to learn with him and looked forward to the many things they covered in every lesson. I highly recommend Ashburn Driving School.

Stellar and comprehensive teaching that will leave you more than adequately prepared for driving on your own. They do a great crash avoidance lesson. Mr .T. is very calm, patient, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

Mr. & Mrs. Tulloch are overwhelmingly kind, patient, knowledgeable, supportive and go above and beyond to help others. Called Multiple driving schools, never got a service or information like that and above all they didn't take any money or gifts in exchange of the provided information and they were able to connect me to the right entity that can resolve my concerns and followed up with me incase I needed help. Truly, I believe that Ashburn Driving School is the perfect place to learn driving and get the correct detailed information, exceptional service, great communication, high quality, honesty and huge support. Totally recommend Ashburn Driving School as they go above and beyond!!!

Hi Cathy, Thank you so much for your call and for the email. We have watched some of the videos of your husband, and we're very impressed by his level of explanation and teaching style (I actually learned some things myself!). We also appreciate his calm and patient manner. I think our son would really respond well to his methods. --Tina K., Ashburn, April 2021
Would recommend this driving school to anybody, new to being a driver or just not a very good one! Mr. T was very patient, clear, taught things generally not taught in basic driving schools, and made the test feel so easy. My parents feel so much better about my driving now since these classes. --India W. Ashburn, 2021
Our daughter drove alone for the first time today [after having received her license from Mr. Tulloch]. She said she was very nervous, and then all of a sudden she saw Mr. Tulloch drive by, and she got a sense of calm. Just wanted to send another thank you for all you do and all you do without even knowing.

Stop searching, you have found the best in the business! Mr. Tulloch taught our first son how to drive two years ago, and he benefited greatly from Mr. Tulloch's calm, reassuring demeanor. He was taught many defensive driving techniques and how to stay safe on the road. Two years later, our son is an excellent driver with an impeccable driving record! I was searching for Mr. Tulloch for our second son who will now be fortunate to learn with Ashburn Driving School! --Jovana P., Ashburn
I could not be happier with my experience with Lyle and Ashburn Driving School. I hired him to do a series of private lessons and behind the wheel with my son. He is thorough, honest, patient, and was truly committed to preparing my son for one of the most important responsibilities there is. He is a pleasure to work with and gave my son many tools and tricks that I was not in a position to provide. He is a true professional and I highly recommend him.

Lyle is the best. Two of my children have received their licenses through Ashburn Driving School and my husband and I are much more assured of their safety because of it. When our older children took similar classes, we never got the impression that either instructor took the obligation seriously. Lyle wants the teens to be safe and responsible drivers for everyone's safety. I truly think that insurance companies should offer discounts to those who have completed their driver's training through Ashburn Driving School. It's that good!
--Barbara C., Ashburn
I was looking for a trustworthy and reputable instructor to prepare my daughter for the driving test. She took the requisite driving course in high school and we drove together for many hours. Not being an instructor, I wanted someone to assess her driving skill and knowledge to cover areas I missed. After numerous futile attempts contacting other driving schools, I came across Ashburn Driving School and immediately received the care and attention I was searching for. Most refreshing was their attention to the training my daughter needed vs. trying to sign her up for a specific program. She only received the training she needed (3 lessons) and passed the driving test the same day she received her 3rd and last training lesson. My daughter found Lyle's approach to training to be very thorough and unintimidating. I highly recommend Ashburn Driving School to others. --Jim F., Ashburn
Mr. Tulloch was EVERYTHING we had been looking for to guide our daughter through the required driver training. Our area is already rather intimidating for many drivers, especially new and young drivers. Mr. Tulloch's thorough program and first-hand training was so valuable and it absolutely prepared our daughter to drive the area roadways. His method was professional, relaxing and confident! I can almost guarantee there is NO OTHER DRIVING SCHOOL that gives the caring attention Mr. Tulloch and his Ashburn Driving School gives to prepare our precious children for driving these challenging roads! We now have the confidence from having our daughter go through the course that she will be much better prepared for any situation while driving. Thank you sincerely, Mr. Tulloch and Ashburn Driving School! TOP NOTCH! --Steve and Debbi B., Ashburn
I write very few online reviews, but Ashburn Driving School warrants it. Our son just completed his training with Lyle, the owner. They were so professional, and so thorough. Our older son went through a different school he had found 4 years ago, and I don't think I ever met the owner/instructor. Lyle came to our home two weeks before our son was scheduled for his Behind the Wheel. He went over the entire process, and what was expected. He showed up on time for every behind-the-wheel. At the end of it, he held him to a 50-point, DMV required test. Following that, we had another follow-up meeting where he reviewed our son's progress throughout the 7 day instruction, in every area of driving, on a worksheet the DMV legally requires him to keep. He informed us of all areas he needs to improve. He walked us through the rest of the process, and told us to contact them if we don't receive the court date within 5 months for our son to get his permanent license. Every step of this process was impeccable. It was important to us to have an instructor that would only grant him his license if he was ready and officially passed the driving portion of the test. There are too many bad, distracted, reckless, and aggressive drivers around here, constantly running lights, speeding, and on their phones. Having a legitimate instructor was important to us, as we have heard so many stories of other instructors taking the money, not doing all 7 Behind-the-Wheel lessons, not testing them, not checking the logs...inexperienced drivers pose a risk to all of us, and I wasn't prepared to put our son on the road if he poses a risk to himself or others. Ashburn Driving School is exceptional, and I strongly recommend them to any family who wants to truly prepare their kids.
--Marissa L., Ashburn
I heard many stories of friends' children doing 2-3 lessons and then being handed their temp license as they were *ready*. I knew we wanted the full lessons we were paying for and to know that our daughter was getting the instruction that she needed. Mr. Tulloch meets the family first (don't you want to know who you are sending your child out with?) and walks you through every step. The sessions included off-road, defensive, etc., and she was always with the same student so she could observe his efforts. We feel it prepared her very well and there was NO cutting of corners. He does it right. ---Lisa M., Ashburn
We just completed our third experience with Ashburn Driving School and we have never been more happy with a business than this one. So many driving schools in the area are corrupt- they take your money, take your student for a quick drive, and issue them their license, just to rack up as many students ($$) as possible, and your child/student learns nothing. That is definitely not the case with Ashburn Driving School! Mr. Tulloch is extremely thorough and he takes his job seriously and we could not be more thankful. By the time our students completed Mr. Tulloch's sessions, they were much more informed and very confident that they could handle any situation they come across on the roads. We all know the Ashburn area is not an easy place to learn to drive, so why would anyone want to take a shortcut with those other driving schools? I mean, you are taking the lives of your children in your hands if you have not prepared them as best you can, and that is why Ashburn Driving School was the only choice for us. Mr. Tulloch really cares about your kids and he wants to see them become good drivers, so he runs them through a battery of tests and lessons such as learning how to evade trouble by taking the car off the road, then getting the car back on the road. No other driving school is this thorough, I can promise you that. We all want our kids to be safe, it is scary enough to be the parents of teen drivers, so it is best to give them the best instruction possible and to our family, there is simply no other choice. Thank you to Lyle and Cathy Tulloch for operating a truly great driving school. --Jim A., Ashburn, 2019
