WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
One of the best services that Smith System has is the behind-the-wheel component because that really takes it out of the classroom and into the real world. Making sure that those concepts are applied in a real-world setting, in a semi-controlled environment, with an instructor there coaching the drivers and providing feedback is very beneficial.— Rob Helstrom, Penske Logistics
