Pros and Cons

While QuickDrive Driving School is smaller than other major driving schools in Valenzuela, it is quite evident that their businesses are growing larger. This can be seen in their recent expansion to Bulacan and the current improvements they have made to their current training vehicle line-up.

Note also that they are quite popular on social media as is evident by their Netizen’s Choice Award which they had won in May of this year.

The one downside to the QuickDrive driving school is that while information on their courses and prices are readily available, their website is really not up to par.

While some might say that that might be somewhat unrelated to their performance as a driving school, having a nice website nowadays is one big factor in making or breaking a business.

Their instructors are very professional and their courses sufficiently cover both the theoretical and practical aspects of driving.
