Pros and Cons

Lorraine Driving has been around since the 70s. As such, their experience in teaching student drivers is matched only by a few other driving schools in Pampanga.

 Couple that with their modern training vehicles are comfortable and equally modern branch offices, their driving school can indeed provide a service worth your time and money.

Despite that though, Lorraine has some disadvantages. First is that their training courses are not that varied and a little too slim in terms of choices.  This also extends to the kinds of training vehicles they have in their inventory which appears to be mainly comprised of sedans.

Take this with a grain of salt though as this info on them were only acquired from their pages and websites so you might want to give them a call first.

Regardless, we highly recommend Lorraine Driving School as they are currently one of the best in Pampanga.
