I took the Pre-Test Preparedness Course and Test Day Assist Course, which was perfect for my needs. I hadn’t driven in the past 5 years so I was feeling a bit rusty, but Scott was really friendly and provided me with all of the tips and confidence I needed to get comfortable driving again.

Jenny on the operations / logistics side was also very friendly and helpful.

Thanks for helping me pass my behind-the-wheel test Scott and the rest of the Bay Area Driving Academy! (12/28/2022)

Great instructors !! My perspective here is going to be a unique one as I did lessons with literally all of them. From the booking process, to the lessons and the post-lesson reviews, it’s all very helpful.

I have, without a doubt, created some very good habits as a driver through their work.

Passed on first try for my practical test and got great pointers throughout. I would say take your time with lessons and get very comfortable with driving as the test could be nerve wracking otherwise.

Hugeee shoutouts to Ryane, Scott, Carrie, Leroy, and Sandra, they are all very knowledgeable, patient, and good at giving direction. Special thanks to Jenny too, always on top of getting me lessons when there are cancellations and a delight overall. (12/9/2022)

I didn’t have a car and i was comfortable driving and wanted to just get some refresher of the driving test rules. So, i opted for the service which would have a pick up and drop facility with a car to use for my driving test. It was a really seamless experience. Scott was the instructor who came right on time and gave me tips before the driving test. I ended up passing on my first attempt. Would definitely recommend it for anyone who’s new to the Bay Area and wants to get a Driver’s license. (9/22/2022)
