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
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!

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.

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
