RECENT REVIEWS for Lead Instructor Teresa
I randomly chose this place and Teresa. I didn’t want a marked car “student driver” or moving advertising billboard.
My daughter 16 3/4 yo knew the road rules etc… Just needed behind the wheel hours.
We loved Teresa, patient and never was short with my daughter and communication with me was nothing but the best.
I have recommended Teresa to several friends and have only heard great things!
My daughter aced the driving test 100%!!!
I highly recommend Bay Area Driving Academy!!! (7/9/2020)
My daughter absolutely LOVED Teresa and looked forward to every lesson she had with her. She learned so much and had “fun” at the same time — Thanks to Teresa she is now a capable, confident driver! Thank you Teresa & Bay Area Driving Academy! (8/19/2019)
I had an adult international driving lesson with Teresa and she made me feel so much more confident about driving on both regular roads and the freeways. She also took me through a parallel park which was very helpful after having learnt on the other side of the road. Teresa was super friendly and I felt very comfortable throughout the lesson. I would definitely recommend her to other people coming from abroad. (7/14/2019)
Great experience with Teresa. My daughter had such a fantastic time learning to drive with Teresa. She was gentle, fun and so helpful. There was a clear noticeable improvement every time she had a session. My daughter passed on her 1st behind the wheel test and I feel confident she’s ready to drive safely. Thank you Teresa!!!

I took two lessons with Bay Area Driving Academy. One was with Teresa and the other was with Erin. Since I had a bitter experience with another school, taking driving lessons with these two ladies was just amazing. I brushed up my driving skills with Teresa right before my driving test and I practiced driving on the highway with Erin to boost my confidence in driving. Both of them were very positive and happy ladies and gave me exactly what I needed. Wonderful school. If you were thinking of trying to save by choosing another school, forget it. Even if this school could be a little more expensive than other schools, you won’t regret your choice. Don’t make the same mistake I made of trying another school! (3/13/2019)
