This Is by far the best driving school in CT , Maybe even everywhere. Well I started the program a couple of months ago and did my in the class hours and then once I got my permit I did the road hours with the school also. Which was a great idea because I learned a lot more. Now I successfully have my actual license because I also took my license test with them. Thank you Knepler Driving Schools!!!

I recently undertook re-training from Howard Knepler, and I was constantly put in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. I recently lost my right leg and had to be trained using my left from Howard. He was accommodating and understanding.

The drivers Ed classes really prepared me for my permit test which I passed and the 8 hours of driving lessons I recommend, they taught me the driving skills I needed to pass my road test, which was a very simple 20 minute test which practically everyone in the class passed.

Howard Knepler (Gary’s son) has helped me so much. I did class time with him at my local high school and I then proceeded to take driving lessons with him. When i started, I was an incredibly nervous driver, but Knepler Driving School specializes in nervous drivers and made me feel comfortable while driving. After class time and driving lessons with Knepler Driving School, I feel a lot more comfortable on the road. I am so grateful I took driving lessons with Knepler Driving School!!

Truly a great experience! I would recommend this school to anyone who struggles with nervous driving. It’s a very relaxed and professional training which will improve your driving ability far beyond any other school could.

I did the 30 hour classroom and 8 hour driving program. It is not good for someone who wants to slack off and get their license quick and easy with their friends. As a teen that’s all I really wanted, but this driving school does not even compare to my High School in terms of learning. The book work was a little excessive because it was barely checked at the end, but in retrospect I did read it all, and I am not one to read (the manual and a book). The lectures were informative probably 95% of the time, and so were the clips played. The driving part was also very informative. They had tricks that made reverse parking, parallel parking, and other “difficult” maneuvers easy. I took the test today, and passed and it was SO easy. I love the school because it fit my schedule. I play school sports and do not have time to sit through a mandatory class in school after school. Knepler is extremely flexible and you can take one of the classes whenever your heart desires. I recommend this school for people who want flexibility, skill, and safety!

Howard was a very kind, quirky and extremely patient instructor. He specializes in nervous young drivers and was instrumental in helping my daughter take her time, learn to relax and focus on learning the rules of the road.
Thanks a bunch!

My parents were prepared to pay five times as much to get me the best drivers education possible–but they didn’t have to! Gary Knepler Driving School gave me the best driver’s education possible at a reasonable and fair price. All the instructors are experts at what they do, and all have a great sense of humor. I totally recommend this school to anyone who is either new to driving or needs a good refresher; it helped me get over my anxiety of driving in no time. Totally recommended!

Driving test is very short literally less than a ten minute drive. Plus the thirty hour class really helps you learn everything you need to know before hitting the rode by covering all the aspects of driving from the parts of the car you should know but most of all the safety.Plus they offer practice driving with an instructor from eight hours all the way up to forty hours in total. Furthermore if you did the 30 hour class sessions and completed all the assignments you get a discount if you want to do practice driving. Just overall a good experience and a great way to make sure you are prepared for life on the road and how to keep your self safe and have all the knowledge of the roads from the laws to advice to make driving easier for you. Such things as how to parallel park and backing into a space tips and strategies.

Overall, I had a phenomenal experience at Gary Knepler Driving School. Having recently passed my driver’s test at the school, I am truly grateful for everything the school and its instructors have provided me with: both the skills and confidence to drive. What was so wonderful about the school was its flexibility and accommodation for its students. I signed up for the program almost a full year before I actually obtained my license, which enabled me to participate in both academic and extracurricular activities, while still balancing a driving schedule. Both the classroom and on-the-road hours were extremely informative and the instructors not only knew what they were talking about, but were also very friendly and actually cared about their students. (I’m not too sure of any other schools whose instructors ask their students to call after they pass their driving tests.) I would like to truly thank Howie and Gary, along with everyone else at Gary Knepler Driving School for providing me with the best driver’s education around; I would never go anywhere else!

What an awesome program. It was so helpful and I learned so much that I know I will be a safer driver than other people who do not go here!
