Drivers Education Testimonial

"I am excited to have my son be a part of the Zimmerman Driving School in Onalaska, WI.  I did my research before signing him up with Zimmerman and I am confident that we made the best possible choice.  In going through the selection process, we reviewed all of the websites for each of the local driving schools.  Each time we kept coming back to Zimmerman.  Additionally, in talking with friends, family and even strangers in some cases, Zimmerman always held the highest of accolades among its alumni. Why would I shortcut my son's initial driving experience in order to save a few dollars?  When I considered the low student-to-driver ratios, the high quality face-to-face instructors and the proactive staff it was an obvious choice.  Zimmerman gets my business and my son gets the best possible experience behind the wheel.  Thanks Zimmerman Driving School!" - Joshua Henshaw
