Lydia Floyd
I was very pleased with Arrive Alive Driving Academy. Terry Sarvis helped calm my fears by teaching Riley skills necessary to become a safe driver. I was not the typical mother in this situation. I called, texted and sent Terry many messages throughout this endeavor. He was very patient and never once made me feel like I was annoying him. Thank you Arrive Alive Driving Academy for helping me feel better as Riley transitions into one of the most terrifying milestones I have faced. I would recommend this academy to everyone that wants to feel assured as they watch their child drive away alone for the first time.

Awesome! Terry Sarvis and his team are professional, and real! They exceeded my expectations and will get my business again when my son turns 15!

So absolutely impressed with Terry and his other instructors. He has done a fantastic job at teaching Bailey the laws of driving and how to appropriately operate a motor vehicle. She is correcting my driving now!! He is so attentive to his students and gives each of them the attention they need. She was so comfortable driving with him. She respects him so much. Not to mention the convenience of him being able to do her drivers road test! Would highly recommend to family and friends and I already have!!

Thank you to Terry Sarvis and his staff for an excellent driver education experience for my daughter! The class prepared her for her permit test. Instructors were very knowledgeable and made her feel comfortable during her practice driving hours and during her road test. I highly recommend Arrive Alive Driving Academy to anyone who has a child who is almost ready to begin driving!

Alive Driving Academy because the operator/instructor is a highway patrol and who better to provide train our children. Not only was the experience pleasant for me, my daughter is Trooper Sarvis' biggest fan. He is professional, courteous, punctual, and I couldn't ask for better instructor. And yes, I'd drive 2 1/2 hours any day or anytime for my daughter to participate in this type of quality program. This is one time that Marion has way more to offer than Columbia and the parents in Horry, Marion, Florence, and Dillon counties are quite lucky!!!!

Words can not express the gratitude that I have for Terry Sarvis and the Arrive Alive Driving Academy. My son has been taught the correct way to drive. One of the last things his instructor told him was..... "remember, you are now driving with 4 other people" This tells me that Terry has taught him to be a defensive driver. Thanks again!

Terry Sarvis was amazing with my son. I recommend his class for all the young adults getting ready to become drivers. He puts his time and heart into these kids. Thank you Terry. I can rest a little easier knowing my son learned how to ARRIVE ALIVE under your supervision.

This is a Top Notch program by a Top Notch instructor. We could go on and on but bottom line is we will just keep referring friends and family over and over. You can not put a price tag on a service like this. What a great benefit for our youth and our surrounding communities! 
 From day one for an antsy mama whose son was about to embark upon the teenage driving years- Terry has made this a wonderful, easy, transition and this mama is now at peace.
 Terry has excelled in instruction and in service and has formed a friendship with my son and our family for a lifetime.

Terry Sarvis and his "crew" are awesome. As a parent to Myriah cannon, I felt so comfortable and confident that she would have that individual attention that is needed for such an important part of a child's life. They make the kids feel comfortable so they are better able to learn. Thanks Terry for making such a difference in this messed up world. You are truly a Hero.

I never thought I would get license due to the fact no one had a small car or took the time out their busy schedule to help. I found out about Arrive Alive Driving Academy and all the details then I knew for a fact I would get my license because both Mr. Terry & Mr.Segars are both determine, helpful, & reliable. I suggest anyone to go through Arrive Alive older or younger. Arrive Alive is here to help.

Many thanks to the Arrive Alive Driving Academy! You built confidence in my son's driving skills, and the program helped me feel more secure as my teen takes on the road. Thanks for being caring and accommodating facilitators whom the kids will always remember!!

 Terry Sarvis and his staff at Arrive Alive Driving Academy did an excellent job with Lindsay Martin 's driver education. The professionalism you bestowed is second to none. I know she and all of your students are much better drivers because of you! Thanks again...

I would recommend ya'll to anyone.Carli felt so comfortable and she gave me positive feed back every time she drove with you. As her parent, I felt at ease and blessed that I chose ya'll!! If Carli wasn't youngest child, all my children would be using this school!!Thank You!!

Mr. Terry was an excellent teacher and he helped me out on many things. Being that he is a cop he cares about his students and doesn't want to be the police that rolls up at a wreck and sees one of his students there. He makes sure the student is ready to drive on their own! I highly recommend him to everyone out there!
Natalie Brooke Todd

I have used other driver academies in the past. And I would have to say by far this one was the best one. He went out of his way to make sure my daughter was picked up and returned home every time. My daughter was nervous when she left the first time, but she was made to feel very comfortable and actually looked forward to the next lessons. Very friendly, trustworthy, and accommodating company! Thank you for taking such good care of my little girl!!
