Our Driving Instructors

Bay Area Driving Academy’s commitment to excellence ensures you are getting the VERY BEST driving instructors. As a result, every day our school strives in becoming an industry leader in the San Francisco Bay Area.


To begin with, CEO/Head Instructor, Carrie Lampman, selects all of our instructors through a detailed vetting process. In fact, the progression includes multiple rounds of interviews, background checks, and license certification validation. In effect, our vetting ensures we hire teachers with the highest level of knowledge-ability and professionalism.


Undoubtedly, our instructors exceed California DMV standards. For instance, all instructors, regardless of experience, take an additional 20 hours of required training. All instructors hold a current California DMV Driving Instructor License.
