If you want to go with a private driving school, I know a great family owned local driving school in Lake in the Hills. It's called Go Slow Driving School and it is owned by two brothers - Pete is a retired LITH Police Officer and Joe is a retired Firefighter. I've known these guys for over 15 years and trust them completely.
