Northwest Suburban Driving School closes McHenry County locations

A driving school with locations in Crystal Lake, Algonquin and McHenry has closed its doors.

The Northwest Suburban Driving School posted on its website that the school is no longer in business and all classes are canceled. It did not include a reason for the closure.

Several parents, including Kelly Cahill of Crystal Lake, said they received no information about the closing or what happens next.

“There is no contact information on the website or anything so everyone is starting to panic,” Cahill said. “I just want to make sure we can get our records.”

Cahill paid more than $400 for her daughter to take the four-week classroom session in June. She has also completed one of the three driving sessions.

But without communication from the school, Cahill said they don’t know what will happen next, if their payments will be refunded or if they’ll be able to get certificates of completion.

The Northwest Herald was unable to leave a message at the driving school’s office, and the number listed for Ed Pudlo, who is registered as the president of Northwest Suburban Driving School with the Secretary of State, was disconnected.
