Definitely recommend Bay Area Driving Academy! I took my first driving lesson last week with Carrie, and she was super helpful and patient with me. I’ve learned a lot of new driving techniques and gained more confidence in driving. It was so worth it! Also, it’s very easy to set up an appointment with them online. Can’t wait for my next driving lesson with her! Thank you, Carrie :)) (8/31/2020)

I was a bit skeptical about booking a class because of the reviews here but I’m so glad i did. I had Carrie as my instructor and she is absolutely amazing! I went from being nervous and not knowing how to start the car to being comfortable driving at 45! In just 2 hours, she taught me enough to pass my test. strongly recommend bay area driving academy:) (10-23-2019)
