We have one course to go for my 16 year old. He really likes Erin and asks for her every time. She is funny and amazingly relaxed – relates really well to teens. He has not had his behind the wheel test yet, but so far we’ve been very pleased and can recommend Erin highly. (1/11/2020)

I never learned to drive as a teenager, but decided it was finally time to get my license after years of putting it off. I was pretty nervous when I first started taking lessons and had barely driven outside of a parking lot. With the help of many of the Bay Area Driving Academy instructors, I feel I can now comfortably drive almost anywhere (including freeways!). In particular, many thanks to Erin and Hassell for helping fine-tune my trouble areas (turning and lane-changing) and getting me to a place where I could pass that DMV test – our lessons were so enjoyable and valuable! I just got my official license in the mail (woohoo)! (8/1/2019)

Our daughter passed her driving test last week thanks to BADA instructor Erin Young! Before her first lesson she was very hesitant to even try, had no desire to drive and was convinced that she will never be a good driver but after one lesson with Erin – she loved it! in a few month our youngest daughter will be practicing for her driving test and we’ll be asking for Erin’s help again!

I took my lessons with Carrie, Erin, and Hassell and they are amazing! I had my initial lessons with Carrie. She’s super patient, knows how to boost your confidence and cultivate your driving skills.
Lessons with Erin and Hassell are super fun! They refined my driving skills a lot, made me very confident to drive on freeways and I got my license in the first try!
It was my first time ever to be in the driver’s seat and I am glad I had amazing instructors to guide me! I would recommend people to listen and try to understand and follow the small driving tips all three of them give you – it makes you a better driver.
I am going to miss driving with you guys but we’ll be in touch 🙂 (4/4/2019)
