About Total Driving School Management

Total Driving School Management is a web-based software designed for driving schools, instructors, and students in the US and Canada, which can be accessed from any computer, tablet, or smartphone. The platform includes features for managing student information, lesson scheduling, instructor and class availability tracking, online enrollment, payment processing, and more.

With Total Driving School Management, both students and office staff can schedule in-car lessons and class sessions, with a drag-and-drop interface enabling quick rescheduling of sessions. The multi-instructor calendar lets users view all instructor schedules for a single day, allowing the rescheduling of lessons to different instructors, and instructors can check and print their daily, weekly, or monthly schedules. Lesson reminders are delivered to students, staff, and parents automatically via email, with the option to send multiple reminders for upcoming sessions. The software records all classroom sessions and in-car lessons booked and attended by each student, giving users insight into attendance histories, upcoming lessons, and lesson balances.

Total Driving School Management integrates with driving school websites to provide online enrollment capabilities. Students can sign up for specific classes and submit their personal information to be recorded directly into the school database, removing the need for double entry of data. Integration with Authorize.Net and PayPal enables the processing of credit card payments for classes, and enrollment confirmation emails are sent out automatically. All student payments can be tracked, including cash or check payments, and users can print out individual or summarized payment receipts.

    Time savings, cost savings. Can use anywhere I have an Internet connection. Frees up time from our offices having to schedule over the phone and we can spend more time with prospective customers.

    Pros

    We used a scheduling only software at one time, but quickly outgrew it. Driving School Software was only slightly more cost but does so much more! We needed an all in one software in order to open additional locations and be able to run all locations from any office. We register, receive payment, track classroom hours, track BTW hours, track State Testing, and final underage Certification. All tracking keeps us compliant with State requirements. Scheduling students is FAST! Creating open appointments and changing them is a breeze. Looking up students and and using quickviews for a brief overview is a real time saver. Automated e-mails and sms, plus we can send single sms directly to student and/or parents.

    Cons

    Although it's fast, moving through different screens for student accounts, i.e., billing on one screen, enrollment on another, general information on another; can be cumbersome, but not a real Con, just could be better. The developers are addressing these issues at this time and we are eagerly looking forward to the enhancements.

    Our Driving School has been using this software for 10 years. We were a little hesitant at the start, as none of us had strong tech skills and we were a little afraid of everything being in the "cloud." Also, the program had so many components that it was a little overwhelming at the beginning. But our concerns did not last long, as we found out that we could limit our use to one component at a time and keep adding to our usage as we became more comfortable. We can't imagine surviving without this software. Every employee in our school from the instructors to the master schedule controller to the bookkeeper use this one software program on a daily basis. It is the "central core" that keeps us all together, even though we live miles apart and do not connect at a central office on a daily basis.

    Pros

    Our team highly values that the software is all-inclusive and everything that we used to do totally on a paper schedule/log book is incorporated in the program. We like that is is Driving School Specific and not just a general appointment scheduling software. We appreciate that the software has "grown" over the years, responding to recommendations from the Driving School Industry.

    Cons

    There is not much to dislike! In the early years, it took a few days to receive a response to a question/concern. But now, it is apparent that this problem has been addressed, as the response time from the Support team is very fast.

    Pros

    There are so many features of this software that we love. Real time scheduling, ability to communicate with parents quickly, text and email reminders, file uploads, administrative scheduling, tracking student progress. Not to mention, the customer service. Whenever we need something added or adjusted to work with our business they are always work with us and quickly.

    Cons

    The only struggle was converting from paper into the software. It was time consuming but once it was finished it was all worth it.
