I am very happy and satisfied with the service I received from Bay Area and David. I had the Test Day Assist course. David was helpful and patient. I will recommend this to my friends. Thanks again! (3/13/2021)

I haven’t had any driving experience when I sat in the car with Armenia. Thanks to her professionalism and patience by the end of those 2 hours I already felt much more comfortable behind the wheel. I took 3 lessons in total, the first and last were with Armenia, who was always friendly, kind, and very professional. I loved that her feedback is adjusted in accordance with my level of driving and was always focused on encouraging further improvement. Each of my questions was answered thoroughly by covering all the aspects in great detail. Also, it’s important that every lesson was concluded with a reflection activity of repeating “what went wrong and how to fix it”. During the last lesson, we simulated the test environment, and thanks to Armenia’s guidance I was well prepared for the behind-the-wheel test, which I successfully passed on the first try.

My instructor Teresa not only was knowledgable on every rule of the road along how to maximize safe driving habits, she was a fun person to talk to and be around! I looked forward to all my driving lessons so I could talk to Teresa and have fun driving. She is very specific on how and where to improve with driving, which made me a safer and more confident driver. We occasionally talked about cars in general, or even current events because Teresa is just a cool person to be around and talk to. If good reviews result in higher pay for instruction, Teresa deserves it 100%! (1/11/2021)

It was easy to sign up and the reminder system by email before each class was very helpful. My daughter took 3 sessions with Armenia and loved it. Armenia was very punctual, professional, and friendly. She helped my daughter feel comfortable and confident behind the wheel pretty quickly. BTW, we misplaced the Certification of Completion of Driving Lessons a few days before the driving test. I emailed on the weekend and Vanessa from driving school replied early on Monday to help out for the replacement, but fortunately we found the document and didn’t need it. Bay Area Driving Academy is the BEST!!! Oh and my daughter passed the test the first time at San Mateo DMV known to be tough with driving tests. (8/9/2020)

I took a lesson and had a Test Day Assist course with David. He was awesome and super helpful. Without going too much into detail, if you’re not sure which instructor to go with, definitely choose David!
Booking the appointments was also super easy. People sometimes complain that you cannot reach driving schools by email or phone, and that’s true (my experience with 3 schools) because they get super busy, and I’ve found the texting responses of BADA to be very prompt. They also send text and email reminders of an upcoming appointment, which I found very helpful. (11/9/2020)
