New Driver Driving school recommendation in Kaneohe

Hello,

I'm looking for some feedback or recommendations for driving schools in Kaneohe. Blaise, my 17yo son needs his 6hrs of behind the wheel training. I was hoping someone knew of a school they would or wouldn't recommend.

...below are the school's I've left message with...awaiting a call back...the only person I was able to reach was Eugene of Haskell Driving school...seemed like an ok guy. $300 for the Behind the Wheel portion...which sounds standard for all schools.

Thanks in advance,

Haskell Driving School - Eugene

Too bad he can't just get 6 hrs of auto-x seat time and call it good.

Car Info: MkIII MR2, s14, 94 mx5, 99 mx5. The beauty of rwd.
With an average "fast lap" of 30-40 seconds, and 4 runs an event, it'd take about 13 years of auto-x to get your 6 hours... (maybe less with test and tune and evo schools) But he'd be a hell of a quick driver

We decided to go with Craig Koizumi...very nice man...very patient (unlike crazy dad...)...he was the most reasonable and called back promptly.
First lesson took like 3 hours...very thorough.

Trisha (wife) rode along...she was happy with the lesson (tough customer...)

So far so good...
