So you’re looking for a driving school/instructor, right? You’re doing exactly what I did when my daughters were learning to drive. After much research and reading many, many Yelp reviews, it became clear that Carrie, originally from Sunnyvale Driving School, is the best instructor, by far, in the Bay Area. And I can confidently confirm that. She is excellent! She knows her stuff; she’s confident, personable, friendly, professional…I can go on and on. My younger daughter is in the midst of her training now, and enjoys the 2 hour drives she spends with Carrie. And I’m learning a thing or two about my own driving since my daughter is now correcting me.

As I mentioned, Carrie was originally with Sunnyvale Driving School which is where I read so many fabulous reviews. She is now running her own company, Bay Area Driving Academy. Definitely give her a call. Your child will learn all they need for the test and will be an excellent driver as well. 11/19/2015

Great choice in driving schools for your teen! Easy to schedule. Very professional in responding to any questions. Jenn was the best instructor. She made the driving experience more relaxed and eases the students stress. I definitely recommend this school and Jenn. They are one school that will take the students on the freeways and mountain roads. Worth every dollar! The only thing I wish they would teach is to drive a stick but that doesn’t take away from what a great job they do! 3/16/2017

This school is absolutely the best and instructor Carrie is a great teacher. My daughter had he final driving lesson with Carrie on Friday and took her behind the wheel test today. Passed with no problems. Carrie has been great she trained my other daughter 4 years ago and she also passed with flying colors. I will definitely recommend Bay Area Academy to family and friends. 9/16/2016

The yelp reviews of Carrie were so good I phoned up and said I wanted Carrie. Since we were impatient to begin, we wound up having one lesson with Jen and one with Teresa. No problem, my daughter liked them both very much and found Teresa to be a kindred spirit. I also like having my daughter getting different teachers’ perspectives, so I thought it was a plus. We look forward to the last lesson with Carrie in September, just a few days before THE DMV APPOINTMENT. Wish us luck! 8/11/2016

We had used another before and my daughter was not comfortable at all with instructor. So we looked for another and found Bay Area Driving Academy. My daughter has had 3 lessons so far from Teresa. Teresa has made learning how to drive, “for my daughter”, fun, not stressful and very informative. Thank you Teresa and Bay Area Driving Academy, she is on her way to becoming a very safe driver. 1/23/2017
