Our tuition and payment policy


Bay Area Driving Academy is committed to your success and journey in driving. We believe you should get what you pay for and you should be able to pay as you go. We believe we offer the best services and education possible and you only pay when you receive these amazing services.


For online driver education courses, you will pay online during the enrollment process for one of the three courses (driver education, mature driver safety, and traffic school). After which you will be able to start accessing your online lesson immediately and at your leisure.


For our in-car training courses, we collect tuition at the start of each lesson. We are on a pay-as-you-go system. We accept cash, check, and credit cards. Please make checks out to Bay Area Driving Academy, Inc. If paying with credit/debit card, process payment online anytime. You may also pay with credit/debit card directly with the instructor.



We have simple pricing for our in-car courses- one price for all course types. Whether you choose 1 or 10 lessons – it is simply $138.00 per lesson. We offer either our Adult or Teen Driving Academy Program (6hr lessons package for beginners) or our various à la carte (or add-on) courses including Freeway Focused Course for $138.00 per 2-hour course.


If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us by phone or email. You may request a return or credit within 30 days of the receipt of the service for the purchase of any online education courses or prepaid in-car lesson. In-car behind-the-wheel driving courses already attended may not be returned for refund or exchange under any circumstances unless stated otherwise during the time of purchase.




If you need to cancel or reschedule any lessons booked, we do require 24 hours or more notice in order to avoid a $100.00 charge for the missed time. As long as we have 24 hours or more, we can certainly reschedule without charge. Thank you for respecting what we love doing most – serving you!


Cancellation Due to Rain. We only cancel a driving lesson when, at the start of the appointment, there is a severe storm which continues through the scheduled time of the training that, in our professional opinion, becomes a safety issue for our student and instructor.
