    I called for the first time to find out what the prices were for the MTO approved course and the man that was “helping” me accused me of calling often and harassment. Since when is asking information the service that a company provides harassment? He was very rude. Cheaper does not mean better…

    Yeah I PASSED MY ROAD TEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now let’s get down to the actual review. Everything about this school is high-quality and professional. The driving instructor was great at putting me at ease behind the wheel, patient, teaching me to be more alert and what to pay attention to (hidden signs, lookout for one-way signs, traffic signals, etc.) and pinpointed the areas that needed more practice, such as not hitting the curb when parallel parking. I felt well prepared for my exam and I passed my road test on the first try. Another thing I liked was that the car I used for the lessons & test was well maintained and easy to use.

    The instructor comes to pick me up at my house for the lessons and the instructor is really punctual. If you truly want to pass your road test on the first try – not that anyone actually enjoys taking it more than once – then take my word for it and go to Above The Best driving school in Ottawa.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    I finally decided to get my drivers licence at this age after relying so many years on my husband’s driving skill! I was looking through the list of ‘ministry-approved’ driver education course providers in Ottawa and decided to go with AboveTheBest driving school in Ottawa.
    I made a really good choice!! The driving instructor was exceptional. He gave me the confidence to drive and to drive safely. As a nervous driver, it took me a long time to warm up to the road. We focused a lot on my weak points such as turns and lane changes, and parallel parking. He used different methods to get things down pat, including making schemes on papers. He assured that I really understand the road rules and I’ll respect them even after I pass the exam!
    I successfully passed the G2 road test now!. I will definitely continue taking lessons from AboveTheBest driving school for my G road test and highly recommend them if you’re looking for a very good instructor. It is a wonderful driving school in Ottawa. Muttu, the instructor / owner, is very professional and conducts his classes in an orderly fashion. He is extremely punctual both for the in-class and in-car sessions.

    I was pretty surprised at how efficient this driving school was!! It’s like the hidden gem among all Ottawa driving schools. My family never owned or drove a car, so I had no experience going in. I was really nervous, but the instructor was really supportive and in few lessons we’d gone from driving down empty streets to driving down Bank St. He taught me some handy tricks for stopping at the right distance and parallel parking. You’d think that spending two hours in a car doing city driving would be irritating, but driving with instructor Muttu was a lot of fun. :) Would definitely recommend if you want to become a safe driver!!!

    Before my G exit test, I wanted to just do another quick lesson to correct any remaining flaws in my driving. I did one lesson with Muttu at Above the Best Driving School….. and then the next week I came back did another lesson with Muttu again and then used his car for my Road Test. I PASSED AT FIRST SHOT!

    Even though I only had 2 quick lessons with Muttu, I found myself very comfortable driving with him. His calm, patient and kind disposition immediately put me at ease. He gave me lots of helpful tips & tricks, and helped to improve my driving skills through some “detailed helpful observations’. He made me feel so confident and capable while still letting me know what I could improve and pay attention on while I’m on the road!

    I wish I had done ALL my lessons with Above the Best Driving School with Muttu! He taught me things that not only helped me to pass the test but to be a responsible driver! I found it to be the best driving school in Ottawa!!

    I usually don’t leave behind reviews, but I just had to let everyone know about my wonderful experience with Above the Best. They have been excellent to work with and very professional. Muttu is very well knowledged, very patient, and teaches exceptionally well. There are lots of new tricks that I learned to make some of the most difficult aspects f driving seem so much easier. I passed my G2 and G test in one try!

    I highly recommend Above the Best! Thanks Muttu!

    My friends recommended Above the Best driving school to me when I was looking to do my driver’s ed program. They were right and I would definitely recommend this school to anyone looking for a professional yet comfortable environment to learn or fine-tune their driving skills! My experience at Above the Best was great and I have Mr. Muttu to thank for that!

    I did a lot of research before choosing a driving school, but eventually I ended up deciding on Above the Best for its MTO certification and great value. And I haven’t regretted that decision! Muttu was a great teacher who explained all the concepts in great detail, while doing so in a fun and kind way. He encouraged a lot of group discussion, which I thought was great. I enjoyed this course a lot, and I would definitely recommend Above the Best to anyone who’s looking for a well-taught BDE course with great value!

    I would highly recommend this driving ed school the price is ridiculous that you just can’t go wrong… When i was researching driver’s ed schools I came across Above the Best and so many people left such nice comments. Muttu is honestly the best he’s always on time, the in-class was boring just cause who likes sitting in a class for the long anyways… like come on right? but passed my g2 first try! Called him afterwards and he was so estatic and just so happy for me which made me happy as well cause it show’s he cares about his students ! Honestly you can’t go wrong with picking this driving school!

    I’ve been driving now for 6 years without any accidents. I’ve actually avoided quite a bit and Muttu definitely helped me perfect and develop my driving skills. Thanks Muttu you have a great approach to teaching and amazing patience!
