Review

Got five behind-the-wheel lessons with an hour's worth of practice right before the scheduled DMV test. The instructor was very calm; he lets you drive with uninterrupted focus and without unnecessary stress. He gave me a rundown of the basics of driving on our first lesson, and reviewed the things the test proctor looks for right before I met the proctor for my test. He pays attention to your performance and speaks up whenever you make even the most minor flaw in your driving, which keeps you on your toes. Also, he was very timely on arriving at my house to start the day. This is a good place to learn how to drive if you're new to it, or to brush up your driving skills if you already have some experience. As for me? I got my license on the first try.

Review

It’s only a four star because of the pricing... Pretty much my experience went like this: I purchased the 6 hour package (2 hr a day) on top of the DMV test package which is why it was a little expensive. My driver was quiet but communicated very well. I felt like he only said anything if I made a mistake and he answered my questions thoroughly. Driver was very flexible on changing my pick up & drop off location. And last Thursday (07/31/2020) I passed my behind-the-wheel test so at the end of the day to me it was a little expensive but it was worth it.

Review

Amazing people with amazing service

Review

Excellent instruction and incredible tips. Highly recommend if you want to pass your test. They also helped me obtain an appointment much faster than the DMV did so I got my liscence in advance!

Review

I had most my driving lessons with Ahmed and had wonderful experience with him. He is timely and he silently observes and mentions the mistakes. Even-though it is a bit costly for me as I had to take more lessons, it is well worth the price.

Review

Sher did a wonderful job instructing me how to drive since this is my first time driving he came to my house conveniently on time picked me up and let me drive to the DMV I had no problem he's first she showed me where everything was located at and you made me feel comfortable and ready to drive I drove to the DMV we had a nice time driving he told me all the rules I messed up some messed up but you help me fix them he told me what I do wrong and when I went in and do the DMV test I passed thanks to him and it needs to be more instructors out there like this if this your first time driving you need to talk to this guy he knows what he's doing thank you

Review

For anyone who is still considering using this company the inefficiency and ineptitude appears to still be a Apart of this driving school. I reviewed this...

Review

Very happy with their service. The instructor is calm, and is able to verbalize and correct all mistakes.

Most important one needs from an instructor is a calm voice so as a student, it eliminates the stress out of learning about driving.

Review

I recommend academic driving school, very professional

Review

I haven't driven in a long time and needed some help on my driving skills. I was bad at making wide turns and rusty on lane changes and parallel parking. But based on the teachings of the instructor from the Academic driving school, my driving improved tremendously. He is a patient, calm, and attentive teacher, I learned a lot from him after a few lessons. This driving school is the best and you will get your money worth.

Review

Sherrard is excellent driving teacher. Since job change and relocation, I was forced to get a driving license. I am over 45 and have never been driving before. So, you can imagine how nervous I was to drive in crowded Bay aria. Sherrard explains me the things I needed to work on. He was patient in correcting my mistakes. Already after couple of lessons I lost my fear of driving. I started to feel more confident in driving soon. Since I was pressed in time, he even took me to my DMV appointment for behind the wheel test out of his coverage aria (which I passed successfully). Thank you for being so awesome, Sherrard! Very highly recommend (10/10)

Everything was outstanding. i got training for the behind the wheel driving and got very interesting lessons and become confident. I am not a nervous driver anymore. i am very satisfied with their program and service. i 100% recommend Academic Driving School. the drivers ed part was good too.

Good Service of Driving behind the wheel.

Review

Academic Driving School is a very unique place for a professional driving training. The instructors are all very honest, patient, committed. Sher (Driving trainer) was very helpful, he taught me to many things about the DMV drive test and he made it so easy which i passed it. The Instructors are on time at all.

The school is very responsive, whenever i am calling and emailing to schedule the class or have question they are responding so fast and helped solve the issue.

The school is so sensetive about the safety of the students (customers). They are trying the best to take care of the students and giving priority to the safety which i really like it.
The vehicles are inspected and maintained regularly, very clean and conferable.
I highly recommend this school to any one who need to have professional driving training and to get their license with just first attempt. Many thanks from the management and instructors of this school.

This is a very professional Driving school. My daughter was very nervous of driving, but Academic Driving school gives her professional instruction which enable her to be a very confident driver. She passed her driving test at the DMV in her first attempt. The driving instructors are trying their best to teach you and they are using different teaching methods. if your a nervous student driver, no wories they will help you a lot, nerviousness is not a problem anymore with this driving school, they know how to fix it. I highly recommend this driving school to anyone who need to drive safely in congested streets of SF and getting their driving license in their first attempt.

Had a week of instructions before my driving test with some experience beforehand. I definitely learned a lot and even got my license first try! They definitely helped me feel more confident about my driving.

I got behind the wheel training with the Academic Driving and Traffic school, they are just extremely impressive. Staff is trying their best to transfer driving knowledge the best way they can, that is way i passed my driving test at the first attempt and become a licensed driver. Highly recommended.

Review

Booked the one hour session before the DMV behind the wheel test. The instructor was very punctual and professional. Gave me useful tips that helped me a lot during the test.

Review

My experience with the Academic Driving School was very satisfactory and the service provided of great professionalism. My instructor was Sher who is patient, experienced, and punctual. They were very helpful and accommodated some not so practical requests that I had without any problems. Thanks mostly to the school I passed my test easily.

The instructor was clear and helpful in my lessons, and helped me overcome my struggles in driving. When I took my practical test, the instructor helped navigate the process and was there waiting when I passed.

I definitely recommend this class for anyone learning to drive!

Instructor is punctual and very cool. I took only 3 classes from him and was able to clear the test. I would recommend you to take a class just before the test so that he can correct you if needed.I did the same and it proved to be very helpful.I would highly recommend this school to others.

Happy and safe driving!
