I came to this class and felt it would be informative, but in a really boring way. My teacher Jessica Ortiz really surprised me by making the classes fun as well as informative. The lessons she taught, helped reinforce what I already knew just needed some help with. Students name Katherine Kellogg.


Expected the class to be dragging and boring (being a drivers ed class in the summer), but turned out to be an enjoyable class. Jessica (educator) was great at getting messages across and also making the class fun and engaging.


My experience here at The Next Street was definitely different and I enjoyed it. It was very informative and it gave me a sense of confidence going for my license. The instructor Jessica Ortiz is a very good teacher she tries to thoroughly explain each lesson. I do recommend this class if anyone is looking for driving classes.

I had Jessica Ortiz as my teacher and truthfully I had expected the class to be boring and unsatisfactory but I actually had a really good time learning from her if she was my teacher for high school I don't think that I would have ever dropped out I recommend that anyone wanting to learn about driving come here and learn from Jessica.

Amy D'Agata

I can’t say enough good things about this driving program and their staff! Jessica is very real , down to earth with these kids at can reach them at their level . Impressed from the moment we walked in up until the driving test! My sons driving instructor Hector was awesome again very detailed yet able to put my son at ease and feel comfortable and confident on his knowledge. And just when I thought I could not be impressed enough my son took his test in Glastonbury the gentleman there reviewed everything with the kids while they were waiting , asked them questions, and gave them reassurance they would do well. I have referred 4 people here and will refer again and again a seamless smooth process from beginning to end! Money well spent ! Thank you all from the bottom of our heart you guys ROCK !

Emily Hughes

An awesome driving school! Jessica is amazing instructor and the curriculum is helpful. 10/10 recommend!

I enjoyed Drivers Ed a lot. My teacher was Jessica Ortiz and she had a lot of energy to keep her students engaged. They had great video demonstrations to help understand concepts!

Kamron Ghoreshi

Jessica Ortiz in manchester next street accelerated was kind good. Would reccomened to everyone. She is serious in getting you to remember things as well as her wacky crazy stories that make the class fun and have everyone engage in a conversation. She dprs have her moments where she can get a bit off topic but only when we have completed most of the material

Grace Poirier

The experience of using the next street has been easy and fun.

Koehl Lindsay

Overall great experience with Jess Ortiz! Jess makes the full 30 hours fun instead of boring with her crazy stories. Would definitely reccomend to anybody instead of doing Cici's.


This class with Jessica has been a very fun and thrilling time of learning. She has a unique way of teaching that keeps us awake. She tells us many stories that helps us develop as better drivers with laughs that keeps the class very exciting. She will be greatly missed and I recommend her to teach anyone . Jessica is the best driving teacher in the world :).

Nathen Quintero

This was a great class I was given a fun enthusiastic driving instructor who was passionate not only about the content she taught but also for my fellow classmates.

Zachary DelGaizo

In honesty, I went into this with low hopes. I viewed it as 4 hours a week i wouldn't get back. Boy was I wrong, to my absolute joy! Jess made the whole endeavour fun and easy to digest.

The class was educational but I felt the 30 hours could have easily be cut to 15-20 hours. I had Jessica and I would recommend.

Elliot Hall

Had a great experience. The 30 hour course taught me everything I need to know about driving. The teacher, Jessica, taught well and made sure everyone knew what needed to be known. It is one of the best driving schools in ct

Samantha Muia

I think that there were some good things and some not as good things when taking classes with Jessica Ortiz at The Next Street. The driving lessons were very helpful and made me feel a little more comfortable while driving. She gave me some very good information while driving and didn’t make me do anything I wasn’t ready to do. But I only wish we could have learned more during the classes.


This was a much more positive experience than I had eve thought it was. Jess was so energetic and engaging with the class and made the time so much more enjoyable :)

Which was not what I expected from a drivers ed class. I while sometimes the lessons could drag on for a bit I would reccomend this class to anyone who wants to learn about driving and enjoy it too.

Classes were interesting more so than I thought it would be. Jess O was really upbeat, positive and made driving not as scary. I would recommend to anyone completely oblivious to to driving.

Ryan Burdick

My teacher was Jessica Ortiz. I expected drivers ed to be boring, but I've heard that this place was a good place to learn. It was awsome. You learn drivers ed in a fun way and play some games along with it. It is really laid back and relaxed. I would strongly recommend this to my friends.

Kiriz Nightcore

I really enjoyed my time at the next street. My teacher Jess made the class extremely fun to be in and because of her the students felt more comfortable to talk out and interact which made the whole experience better. Not only was the class fun but also informative, I learned a lot from this class which I wouldn't have known if I just studied myself. I would highly recommend to sign up for the Next street as it is a great experience.

Jess O. made the class interesting, lessons were easy to follow with an instructor who has personality in spades. Definitely not like any class I've ever taken previously.

Alijah Barrett

My instructor, Jess, really made driving school more interesting and engaging than I first thought. Not only did she make sure that every student knew the material, she also had anecdotes and small stories that related to the material. Honestly, one of the best teachers I’ve ever had learning from.

Lindsay Fresher

The 30 hour course with Jess Ortiz is possibly one of the best classes i’ve ever taken. I originally picked The Next Street because of the great price, but was very excited and optimistic going into it. My first class blew me away, Jess is outgoing and welcoming! On top of learning a lot in the 7 1/2 weeks I was enrolled, I made friends and had a lot of fun. I was so surprised to find that drivers ed could be interactive and exciting. We engaged in educational activities to learn, such as making posters and playing jeopardy review! I 100% recommend The Next Street Manchester for anyone who is looking for the best, most hands on Drivers ed you can get for a steal, as well as the amazing staff such as my instructor Jess Ortiz!!

Liahna Strout

I took an accelerated course at Simsbury high school with Jess. I was prepared for a very boring experience going into drivers ed, but was very surprised by my experience. I enjoyed my experience so much and loved Jess’ teaching style and the way she conducted class. I believe i will really remeber the things she has taught me because she really was able to grasp my attention. i strongly recommend taking a course with the next street and especially with Jess!


Very good experience. Learned a lot of information in order to pass my license test. Jessica Ortiz was a great teacher and kept the class engaged even with long topics

Michelle Lavoie

I took Drivers Ed with Jess at East Catholic High School and she made it not only informal, but fun too. We played lots of games and she is very easy to talk to about any driving concerns. I was nervous about learning to drive but now I can’t wait to get my license.

Hannah Bandy

I enjoyed my time here as it was humorous, which is a blessing since this topic is extremly boring. However, I learned a lot and the experience was enjoyable. I can't say the same for my seat-mates.

Olivia Rowell

i think that i walked into this class thinking that this class with jess was going to be boring and not fun sitting in a class for 2 hours but really got a fun class that was made interesting and fun to learn about

Jaden Joaquin

I had Jessica Ortiz and she was a good teacher.We learned everything we needed to know and are now prepared for the road.

Matt W

Coming into it I completely expected it to be one of those things that you do and it is very boring but you have to do it. After the first class with the introduction I immediately loved it and was happy to have class. Jess made it so easy to not get bored and to have fun. She taught all of the material well while also maintaining our attention. I loved my experience here. Jessica Ortiz was my teacher she was great. I have already recommended friends to come specifically here.

Valerie Parsons

- The Next Street School has HUGE opportunities to teens and adults who want to learn to drive. I recommend the 30 hr course, because you learn more about how to control the car, and how the car operates. You won't find another school that offers great payment plans, services and an amazing instructor as Jessica Otriz. She has such a outgoing, humorous, and confident personality. Her confidence about teaching students to drive just radiates off of her, she never let me feel anxious about being on the road or behind the wheel. She works directly on what you need to improve on, and she never once makes you feel like a failure, I promise you, that the Next Street School is worth checking out!

Julianna Alfonso

Very very helpful I learned a lot. Jess was very funny and has great insight into basically everything. 10/10 would recommend.

Lizzie Adams

I learned a lot within the 30-hour course with Jessica as my educator. She made the lessons fun and educational, and I definitely learned a lot more than I would’ve learned at any other driving school.

ccateni 28

I never been to a school with a nicer teacher. The driver ed class was great, but as I expected we mostly did notes. I wish it were a little more interactive or had more games. Jessica really did help the class feel less boring than American Driving School by a long shot. Would definitely do school here again.

Jack Brown

Very fast and very fun and interesting, easy to schedule and reschedule classes and drives. Jessica makes the classes fun and involves us in fun games and activities in order to teach us more about driving. Very educational and interesting and sets you up for success. It is a great way to prepare for your driving test.


complete opposite of what I expected it to be. I had expected it to drag and be boring but the educator Jessica Ortiz kept it engaging and entertaining. Highly recommend.

Joshua Cooke

My educator was Jess Ortiz, Class was better than expected. She kept students engaged while still getting the points across

Josephine Rozbora

I had a very great experience during this class... definitely better than Normal school. Jessica Ortiz was a very good teacher and I would honestly like to have her as a regular school teacher to make my other classes more fun! She did tell a lot of stories and kind of got off track a few times making me feel as though I was not getting all of the information needed to pass, but I still had a wonderful time!

Leo G

I took the accelerated course at Simsbury High School taught by Jessica Ortiz. She was an amazing, engaging, and fun teacher. She made what is always thought of as a boring and grueling class fun, exciting, and even something to look forward to every day. I highly recommend taking drivers ed from her.

Alyssa Monteiro

I took the 30 hour class and had Jess O. as my teacher. Driving class was much better than I initially expected it to be. I would definitely recommend The Next Street to anyone considering taking drivers ed. I had so much fun and wish the class was longer.

Isabella Grimaldi

My experience at The Next Street was amazing. Instructor Jessica Ortiz was super nice and extremely helpful. I feel well prepared for my test and thoroughly enjoyed my time at The Next Street.

Nicholas D’Agata

My experience with the next street has been very enjoyable and educational. I enjoyed my classes with Jessica and she taught me a lot about driving, as-well as my driving instructor Hector who was very understanding and helpful and I would highly recommend The Next Street. And Jess gave me pizza so that’s a plus. COME FOR THE PIZZA AND SODA!

Melissa Sullivan

i really enjoyed taking classes at the next street. i enjoyed having jessica as my instructor. she made the class fun, yet still made sure we learned what was expected in the class. she was also very patient and understanding when it came to different students and their speed of learning. i would definitely recommend anyone to come here for their driving classes and lessons!!

Savannah Jeffrey

i learned a lot and jess did a great job of keeping everyone’s attention

It was fun day everyday doing 30hr class for 2 weeks, Jessica is a real deal, she’s fun, lovely and has a lot of energy and spirit who made the class much more interesting. Hope to see her again in the other side!

Olivia Maeve

I expected drivers ed to be extremely boring. It was. Although, my teacher, Jess wasn’t boring so it made the class more tolerable. Overall I wouldn’t have wanted to go anywhere else.

Alex Wrzesien

Enjoyed my time at the next street

Dwaritha Ramesh

I took the 30 hour accelerated course at Simsbury High School. It was definitely a great experience, and was very fun with Jess Ortiz. Jess certainly made Driver's Ed enjoyable and I looked forward to coming to class everyday. Sad it's over!

Megan Labbe

Writing this review in class right now. I guess it’s cool. Jessica was very relatable to the younger audience because she keeps up with our slang and language. The Next Street is not very informative. I left with NO new knowledge about driving. Most of the 30 hours i spent in class was playing irrelevant games and telling personal stories. Jessica is a wonderful person but The Next Street is the problem.

Adrianna Delgiudice

I had a excellent experience, Jessica was an exciting instructor, nothing but smiles, always willing to help and a very good teacher.

Mitchell Rakowski

I had an accelerated course at simsbury high school with Jess Ortiz and she made the material in the class very easy to understand. She tells hilarious stories and she's a super nice person.

Sean Moriarty

Although I wouldn’t say taking a thirty hour course over two weeks was particularly enjoyable, it was a good opportunity to get drivers ed out of the way. The teacher, Jessica Ortiz, definitely made it more enjoyable by being engaging and informative. If you want the discount from taking a thirty hour course and have two weeks over which you don’t mind being somewhat drained, this is the best option. In other cases, I would still recommend The Next Street.

Maddie Peling

Great experience! I feel so much more confident with my driving knowledge and abilities. Thanks Jessie!

Alexis Grant

Jessica Ortiz was very nice and friendly. I would recommend doing the accelerated program, it’s not a traditional everyday class she makes class exciting.

Katelyn Muia

The teacher (Jessica) at the Next Street Manchester has lots of energy and good life experiences to share. That being said, the Next Street course was not very informational. I came into the class expecting to learn about driving, but left with only a little new knowledge. I feel like I learned very little about driving. I would not recommend going to the Next Street.

Alec Boyce

The Next Street Manchester is a solid driving school. The educational learning for each driving lesson is excellent and the learning instruction videos are of the highest quality. The classroom activities are swell if a little bit distracting due to the excitement of the class participants. Other than that, my whole experience was solid & of the utmost educational quality! Jessica Ortiz is my instructor & she did a great job emphasizing the seriousness of the driving subjects she taught. The Special Guest Speaker known as Raul is a great supporting person to be apart of my 30 hr. Classes!

Cameron Yanicky

the next street provides a great drivers ed program that engages the students and allows for them to excell in their path to getting their lisence. jessica is a fun and eccentric instructor that makes the experience that much better.

Adam Berkenstock

I believe this course was very helpful to my driving experience! It taught me new things, as well as my parents! I dont think the class would've been half as entertaining without Jess and her stories, so thanks to her!

Zoe Perreault

It was nothing I expected, I expected to be bored out of my mind and faking asleep, my instructor was fun and interactive, up beat and kept me engaged, and I feel that my class mates would all agree.

I was not expecting Drivers ed to be as fun as it was, because of this I learned a lot. In addition to this Jess is very chill, and almost always brings in fun topics even though they might not be about the lesson, and is entertaining.
