RECENT REVIEWS for Driving Instructor Armenia
Went from zero to driving license with the help of BADA. I never learnt to drive before because the places that I used to live in before didn’t really require a car. But you really need a car in the Bay Area. I chose BADA mostly through scouring of reviews on yelp. I’ve had classes with Erin, Armenia, Hassell, Carrie, and Amelia. In my first few classes (I had a few classes with Driversed, so I did have some experience), Erin helped me get comfortable with driving in general and we also did some mountainside driving as well as freeway driving. She kept reminding me on speed limits and helped me considerably with lane changes on the freeway. Armenia is very particular about accuracy and she will pinpoint whenever you make a mistake. This really aided me in maintaining speed limits and getting better at backing. She also took a lot of mock tests before my first test (which I unfortunately didn’t pass (I made a wrong turn and stopped in the middle due in part to the morning sun glare which I hadn’t experienced before)).
I started my second round of classes with Carrie to fix the mistakes made in the first test. She took me around the vicinity of the test location to fix some of my errors such as bad left turning lane turns, slowing down on turns in general, and not looking through any intersections you pass. Hassell re-iterated on some of these errors and helped improve my turns with some mountainside driving as well as paying attention to the pedestrians during residential driving. He is one of the best instructors of the school though he can be a little overwhelming at the start. Later on, he sent me numerous references and videos, to further my understanding of different dangerous situations and how not to get into them. I worked on slow turns with Amelia even more and we practiced a lot of turns which really helped in the end. After all these classes and practice, I finally passed my 2nd test and am now waiting for my permanent driving license in the mail. Thank you so much BADA!! (3/16/2019)
Despite it being her few times behind the passenger seat instructing me as a student driver, Armenia does a fabulous job instructing me on the road. She points out what I need to improve on, helps me scan the surroundings, and provides a calm, pleasant, yet attentive experience for a first-timer like me, all in a professional manner. I strongly recommend the Bay Area Driving Academy and look forward to another lesson in the future. 8/10/2018
