I received a response from **** at Mission Driving School stating they would process a refund within a few days. Since I haven't received any refund 2 weeks later, I called the school asking about the status of my refund. A lady said that she would remind **** of my refund; however, as of today, I have not received it. Product_Or_Service: Teenager Driving Lesson Order_Number: None Account_Number: N/A

Additional Notes

Complaint: I purchased freeway driving lessons for ******* ********. I received street lessons and the company was unwilling to replace lessons or refund fees. On july 13, 2013, I ordered three freeway lessons for ******* ******** and their internal notes on my order indicated that I had very specific training objectives, which were freeway driving maneuvers. The instructor was unfamiliar with the area and unable to take my nephew on the freeway during his lesdons. When I contacted the company on five different occasions, I was assured that I would receive a call back from the manager. To date, I never have. Today, I called again to follow up and the staff person indicated that I wouldn't receive a refund, another lesson, or a call back from the manager, who is out of the country. I am complaining because I didn't receive the services that I purchased from this company.

Desired Settlement: I would like a refund for my service fees.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 8, 2013/09/08) */ Contact Name and Title: ******* ***** ******, CEO Contact Phone: ************ Contact Email: ******************************** When contacted, the customer asked for one hour free driving training lesson to compensate for the any discrepancy/s left during 6-hours driving training program , so we agreed to that and scheduled one hour driving lesson for her son on Wednesday, September 11,2013 from 9-10 AM.With this customer's demand for free lesson has been met and the case needs to be closed. ******* ****** CEO Final Consumer Response /* (2000, 10, 2013/09/11) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) I appreciate that the company sought to rectify the situation.
