Hello Bay Area Driving Academy, I would like to thank the instructors Teresa and Tony for helping me to attain my diviners licence. I was able to pass my behind the behind the wheel test on February at Santa Clara. Thank you 2/19/2018

I had my first driving lesson with Teresa and she was amazing!! She kept me calm and gave me the confidence I needed! I just wish her schedule wasn’t so full, so that I could get more lessons with her! Highly recommended! 4/4/2018

This review is long overdue. My twins had Teresa for a driving instructor. She was great! They felt comfortable with her expertise. She had them doing freeway driving fairly quickly and they learned a lot. I had to change the scheduled lessons a few times due to their other activities. It was easy to reschedule. They both passed their DMV road test on the first attempt. Yay! Thank you Bay Area Driving Academy and Teresa! 3/21/2018

I took couple of hours driving lessons from Teresa and Carrie. Both instructors were too good. They really helped me a lot to clear my test in the first go itself. Instructors were very professional, punctual and most importantly very friendly. They truly helped me gain confidence before my test. I really appreciate their help!! 12/15/2017

I’m going to be recommending this Academy to all my friends! I had 3 lesson, each with a different instructor: Luis, Teresa, and Tony. They were all incredibly patient and amazing teachers. Their feedback was always extremely helpful and immediate. I loved learning from them for those 2 hours! 12/6/2017
