Teresa is the best! I was very nervous about my daughter driving. But- after the first lesson she learned so much and my nerves were calmed. Your company is as good as it gets! We recommend you to everyone who is looking for an instructor. Thank you! 10/3/2016

The Bay Area Driving Academy is very professional from the get go. Their site was very informative, they responded immediately to my request and their contacts were timely and helpful. I am an elderly client and needed to brush up my driving skills before taking the DMV driving test after many years without one. I was very nervous and Theresa, the instructor they sent, was outstanding, friendly, knowledgeable and experienced. She was exactly on time to begin with, and during my session was very reassuring and sensitive – in fact she was so careful about my feelings I had to assure her that I needed her criticisms and welcomed them! She really boosted my confidence and I passed the test with flying colors, thanks to her helpful tips I’m sure. I felt the cost of the pre-test preparedness course was worth every penny, and I can wholeheartedly recommend them. (7/2/2016)

It was great to be behind the wheel with Teresa. She helped me get over my nerves and feel more confident behind the wheel. You can’t go wrong here. I got great pointers and know what to work on. Thanks Teresa for the lesson. I’m so glad I worked with you. 5/5/2016
