I booked a lesson after a recommendation from a friend. Teresa was a really good instructor. I told her that in my thirty something years I had never driven till a month ago for about 8 hours. She told me that she would try her best. And she did. She explained me thoroughly how DMV would test me. She also instructed me how to plan my practice leading to my road test. I passed it the first time I took.
She’s really knowledgable about the test. If you follow her instructions step by step, you have a high chance to pass. More importantly she’s knowledgable about the local driving culture, which could really safe your life.
Last thing, she’s strict but fun! 🙂 1/30/2017

Teresa is great! She’s a patient, friendly, and informative instructor who makes the lessons fun, which definitely eased my nerves as a first time driver with barely any experience. I’ve only had two lessons so far, but I have learned a lot! In my first lesson I was surprised that I was capable of driving fairly decent on the road for the first time, thanks to Teresa’s help. I look forward to my future lessons with Bay Area Driving Academy. 11/14/2017
