Our Clients Reviews

Mr. Odom has been a wonderful driving instructor for all three of our children! He has encouraged them and made them into safer drivers. Thank you! 

Catherine K.

Chesapeake, VA

This is a great Behind the Wheel course. My son really liked and respected Mr. Odom, and you know how teenagers take criticism. He actually looked forward to going. Bottom line, Navigation Academy is an exceptional course if your teen is soon to be a licensed driver! 

Chuck L.

Chesapeake, VA

The customer service has been an absolute blessing. The process of getting my son everything that he needed has been streamlined from start to finish; this is especially helpful to me since I am deployed. Mr. Odom kept me in the loop from the enrollment through him getting his license. I was touched by the picture card because it allowed me to have a piece of this milestone for my boy from halfway around the world. I can’t fully express how much I appreciate the updates and professionalism. I would recommend Navigation Academy again and again!

We have enjoyed working with Mr. and Mrs. Odom of Navigation Academy. We just completed driver training with our second son, and they worked with our request to be trained along with a friend. The driver training was professional and we felt like our son was in good hands.

Lori H.

Chesapeake, VA

I really appreciated how detailed the information provided prior to the driving class was. Mr. Odom met with my son and I and explained exactly what to expect and worked with our schedule. My son liked driving with Mr. Odom and I appreciated his calm demeanor. I will definitely recommend the Navigation Academy to others.


Chesapeake, VA

Our second daughter recently completed driving school with Mr. Odom. She went from being a timid driver who never wanted to be behind the wheel to a confident driver with growing skills.

We are so very grateful to Mr. Odom for the professional instruction he gave to both of our daughters. He is an encouraging educator and he puts his students at ease. When our son gets his permit, we will be signing him up, too! We highly recommend Navigation Academy!


Chesapeake, VA

My husband and I were very pleased with the training our 16-year-old daughter received at Navigation Academy of VA, LLC. She appeared to be very comfortable with the instructor and has been able to effectively apply the overall teachings of the course. The day after she successfully completed the driving course we were riding down George Washington Highway and out of the blue, we were sideswiped by another driver. I was amazed at how calmly my daughter reacted and defensively stayed in her lane after being hit. Had she been nervous or unsure she could have easily swerved into oncoming traffic. I think the course did an excellent job of building her confidence, in addition to reinforcing the rules of the road. I would definitely recommend the school and its instructors to other parents seeking a professionally run school that genuinely cares about our youth’s success.

My stepdaughter and daughter both went to NA. LOVED it and in 3 years we will be calling for our son! THANKS!

Dealing with the reality of my daughter and driving, I admit I was very nervous. Mr. Odom was very thorough and took the time to talk with me from the beginning. My daughter was in good hands with Mr. Odom and the time and attention spent on detail was excellent. I really appreciated Navigation Driving Academy for being flexible with schedule. I am glad My daughter was taught by an excellent teacher for such an important milestone in her life. Thank you Mr.Odom. Your service was very much appreciated.

Wanda B.

Chesapeake, VA

My son just finished behind the wheel training at Navigation Academy. The level of professionalism, accommodation, and service is second to none. As a single parent, the Odoms were able to work with my schedule and provide training for my son very quickly. After only the first lesson, I could see a marked improvement in his skills. He was much calmer and more alert when driving. He also really enjoyed Mr. Odom’s calm demeanor and encouragement while training with him. I would highly recommend Navigation Academy to anyone with a young person looking to improve driving skills.

C. Hill

Chesapeake, VA

We found Navigation Academy through word of mouth and personal recommendations. Suffice it to say, we were very pleased with the organization, attention to detail, and ease Mr. Odom provided from start to finish. I would recommend Navigation Academy to anyone looking for a behind the wheel instructor.

Kelly K.

Chesapeake, VA

Mr Odom was fantastic for driving instruction for my son. He was excellent for on the road driving instruction and for the DMV test. His calm demeanor put my son at ease while he learned practical tips for driving in the area. He was extremely flexible and patient when we had a scheduling conflict. I highly recommend him for driving instruction. Keep up the great work Mr. Odom.

G. Polaski

Chesapeake, VA

Mr. Odom was a very patient, knowledgeable, and professional driving instructor who came highly recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed. I was impressed with his punctuality, overall safety concerns for my daughter, and daily feedback throughout the week.

If you are looking for a driving instructor, look no further 🙂

Chesapeake, VA

My daughter just completed the behind-the-wheel driver training through Navigation Academy, and we were very pleased with the entire process. From the very beginning, Mr. and Mrs. Odom were professional and responsive. I had contacted two other driver training programs this summer, that were recommended to me, and NEITHER ONE of them bothered to even call me back. The Odoms responded in a very timely manner to my request, and the training was set up quickly. My daughter enjoyed her time with Mr. Odom, felt like she got good information and education. We will be recommended Navigation Academy to anyone who asks!

Susan C.

Chesapeake, VA

We were so impressed with Mr. Odom. He was professional, courteous, and we were happy that our daughter had him for certified driving lessons. I highly recommend him!

P. Hamley

Chesapeake, VA

I totally agree with everyone. Mr. Odom is a professional in every way, we heard about him through our church and he came HIGHLY recommended. My son was not confident in his driving skills. After Mr. Odom worked with him, we have seen his confidence grow every day.

D. Williams

Chesapeake, VA

Mr. Odom was excellent for my son to drive with before getting his license. His skills improved and he is a much better driver now and eagerly drives on his own. The whole process was painless and very professional. Thanks for the great experience for my son.
