This is no doubt, one of the best and most professional driving schools! They have a clear online appointment system that lets you choose the type of lesson, time and the instructor prior to paying the fees. You also get regular reminders of upcoming lessons, that I found helpful.
I was able to overcome my fear of driving and pass my test on the first try after taking 3 classes with Hassell. He is punctual, friendly and patient (even when I made critical errors on the road). I really appreciated how he went out of the way to understand WHY I made certain mistakes and suggested how to avoid them. His tips, tricks and feedback have helped not only for the road test, but for safe driving on a daily basis. I highly recommend Hassell and the Bay Area Driving Academy to anyone looking for lessons!

I highly recommend this driving school to anyone learning how to drive. Had a very positive experience all around. Easy online scheduling and rescheduling, and huge thanks to my son’s driving instructor, Sohrab, who is amazing! Keep up the good work! (11-9-2019)

I took two driving lessons with instructor Sohrab (It’s probably the third and fifth class if I remebered correctly out of the many classes I take) and it was great! He’s both knowledgable and encouraging – doesn’t try to always take control for the wheel and give very useful tips that I can quickly apply in my driving. Not only did we made sure test content was covered, but we also went through hill driving, free way and parking which are essential to me as first time driver. I would strong recommend Sohrab to anyone who’s looking to familarize themselves with driving and prepare for the test. (11-24-2019)

This company is awesome! I definitely recommend, my 16-year-old took classes with a few different instructors and they were both great. They were helpful, knowledgeable, professional. When originally trying to get information and set up the appointments they were very prompt and everything was set up via text and email making payments were convenient as we did them online and Carrie In the office is the one that I dealt with. She was very professional helpful, and friendly. Definitely a five-star company! Needless to say my daughter passed her drivers test with flying colors and got her first car in the whole experience was was great. (9/8/2019)

Best driving school and best instructor in Bay Area!! Hassell is such a great instructor. He is so nice, knowledgeable and extremely patient! He is the best instructor I’ve ever encounter!! I took two lessons with him and he taught me soooo much, not just everything about road test but also very practical skills like how to drive on freeway, in mountain area and a lot more.
AND I PASSED MY ROAD TEST FIRST TRY today!! I highly recommend taking class with Hassell, ur driving will just instantly improve magically :D. Be sure to ask for Hassell for you lessons, you won’t regret!! (8-29-2019)
