I haven’t had any driving experience when I sat in the car with Armenia. Thanks to her professionalism and patience by the end of those 2 hours I already felt much more comfortable behind the wheel. I took 3 lessons in total, the first and last were with Armenia, who was always friendly, kind, and very professional. I loved that her feedback is adjusted in accordance with my level of driving and was always focused on encouraging further improvement. Each of my questions was answered thoroughly by covering all the aspects in great detail. Also, it’s important that every lesson was concluded with a reflection activity of repeating “what went wrong and how to fix it”. During the last lesson, we simulated the test environment, and thanks to Armenia’s guidance I was well prepared for the behind-the-wheel test, which I successfully passed on the first try.

It was easy to sign up and the reminder system by email before each class was very helpful. My daughter took 3 sessions with Armenia and loved it. Armenia was very punctual, professional, and friendly. She helped my daughter feel comfortable and confident behind the wheel pretty quickly. BTW, we misplaced the Certification of Completion of Driving Lessons a few days before the driving test. I emailed on the weekend and Vanessa from driving school replied early on Monday to help out for the replacement, but fortunately we found the document and didn’t need it. Bay Area Driving Academy is the BEST!!! Oh and my daughter passed the test the first time at San Mateo DMV known to be tough with driving tests. (8/9/2020)

My teenager Kai, just finished his third Teen Driving lesson with BADA. Armenia has been a great instructor for him. She is kind, patient and knowledgeable with everything he needs to be a successful and confident driver. Kai really enjoys her teaching. My son has a few more months to practice with his permit and we really like the a la carte classes that you can sign up for. He is taking a few extra lessons, since Armenia is such a great teacher and he really enjoys learning with her. Also, as a parent, every time he comes home from a 2-hour lesson, he is truly a better driver and I can relax more when I’m teaching him in the car. When he gets closer to his DMV test, we signed him up for that specific 2 hr lesson with BADA to prepare him for a successful outcome. (8/19/2019)

I chose a custom-tailored course with BADA to improve my driving after moving here from the Midwest. I was very fortunate to have Armenia as my instructor. She was extremely patient and offered real-time feedback throughout the course. She was very observant and pointed out many areas I need improvements in. She shared a lot of practical tips on driving in the Bay Area. Her explanations helped me identify my bad habits and start forming good ones. In my opinion, this course was 100% worth the investment. Thanks! (8/6/2019)

Armenia is an amazing Instructor. I have had her for 2 lessons and I went from having no driving experience at all. I felt comfortable with her and she could always take control when necessary. She would pinpoint my mistakes and would tell me how to fix them and how to prevent the mistake. Armenia is all about accuracy. Her goal is to make everyone feel comfortable with driving and allow is to pass the test. It really helps that she is confident with being the instructor and she is very passionate about her job. She would always ask me questions to make sure I was scanning the road to find the speed limits and any other important information. I feel like I am prepared for my DMV test and I will be using her to prepare for it more. I was given good advice and I will be recommending her to all my friends who are in need of professional lessons! (7/29/2019)
