Academy Driving Instructor Scott


Instructor Scott brings his passion for teaching to the South Bay – from San Jose, all the way to Palo Alto. Before joining Bay Area Driving Academy, Scott worked the majority of his professional career at Hewlett Packard. Previously he also worked as an Auto Technician for a while, so he is well versed in mechanical, technical aspects, and building things. Over the years, Scott has found his niche teaching students of all ages how to drive.


Having a teenage son himself, his patience, wisdom, and kindness shines through.  Scott is a great instructor and very calm. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time gardening with his wife; their specialty being English Roses. You will also find him occasionally tinkering with cars, model trains and building personal computers.

I took two lessons with Scott. He was very calm through the whole time he pointed out all of my mistakes and gave lots of advice how to improve my driving. I even scheduled the behind-the-wheel test with them but a different instructor ( Clifton) and I passed the test with zero mistakes. I highly recommend this driving school to anyone!


Instructor Scott – Thanks so much for the driving lesson you gave me yesterday, and for the 5-star scores! Much appreciated!

Also thanks for the sample score sheet you gave me. I hope to go to the DMV next weekend for a final practice and will get in touch after my exam to let you know how I did. The instructions you gave me were very comprehensive, and helpful…you are a great teacher!

Thanks again!


I had Scott as my instructor. He was very patient and manage to guide me through all my doubts/mistakes with ease. Excellent extra-training to address the driving test (which I past), I can totally recommend.

I wanted to reach out and say thank you for the last three driving lessons I’ve taken with Leroy and Scott. Both of them were incredibly helpful and helped me work through a lot of the anxiety I had about being behind the wheel. (11/30/2023)


Took four lessons with Scott and passed the road test using their car! Scott is a patient and supportive instructor who explains things very clearly and is very fun to talk to! The post-lesson review email they send out is also super helpful in reminding me what I learned and what I need to improve in. During test day, he accompanied me through it all and helped a lot with calming my nerves. Would 10/10 recommend (10/19/2023)
