Do you do extra driving if a student needs help
Yes, we will do our best to accommodate extra drive times. There is an additional charge of $50/hr
Do you drive in the rain?
Since we live in Louisiana and rain is a big part of driving here, we do drive in the rain.
If schools close down due to weather conditions or there are severe weather warnings we will NOT drive with our students.
The safety of our students is paramount to us. We will never force a student to drive if they are uncomfortable with the weather conditions.
