I took several custom-tailored lessons and the test-day assist with Hassell and one pre-test preparedness lesson with Felix. Both were excellent instructors, and helped me refresh my skills and learn how it works here in California; I was able to pass my test easily once I was confident in what they were looking for and what was expected of me. I highly recommend these instructors and lessons. (12/18/2019)

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!
