Here are some reviews from our users.
"I walked in to inquire about committing to a lessons package for me and my husband and the individual at the front desk didn’t acknowledge my existence. I greeted with a smile and they acted like I didn’t exist. I’m 8 months pregnant, it felt very rude, triggering, and targeted, and I would even say discriminatory, likely due to my condition. Never have I felt so ignored and had worse service, disgusting…."
"It’s an OK driving school. Instructors aren’t bad; however they don’t allow you to move your road test The bad reviews are justified. If you pay for the lesson package they won’t show you how to park until more than half way through. Again a key point of the driving exam; that can determine your license; is not taught in your first couple lessons. Also they offer stick shift lesson on their website but they no longer have any stick shift vehicles in their fleet"
"So many bad reviews for no reason, I believe it’s the driver at fault and not the instructors! Yesterday I passed my road test at the Havermeyer site with the help of all the lessons I learned with akademia!! I’ve booked these guys for minute lessons, minute lesson and the vehicle for the road test, the vehicles are old but after using them for the lessons it makes you feel comfortable enough since you have experience with the car to ace the road test, I had my doubts and felt like I was going to flunk it but I didn’t. Shoutout akademia, shout out instructors Esther, Victor, and the bigger guy (Forgot his name) for all the help in progressing me to the next step. Ignore all the negative remarks, these guys are the ones to go to. Like I said the ones leaving the nasty comments are the ones who was bad behind the wheel!"
"When I first started taking my driving lessons I was very nervous, but my instructor Victor was very knowledgeable and professional. He made feel very comfortable and I was able to stop being nervous and driving freely. He is an amazing instructor. I wouldn't go to anyone but him. If your a new driver ask for victor, you will get the best lessons and experience."
"Rude guy at the front desk he told my sister they are booked til December to shop else where then when our aunt went in who looks to be Caucasian she had a appointment ready for the next week WOW not even gunna get into that !!!!! The road test cars are old aswell! I paid dollars to use a car for my road test and was driven to the road test with 4 other ppl we were all swished in the back seat one in the front with the driver mind you it’s still a PANDEMIC the instructor didn’t put his mask on and when asked if he was vaccinated he said no non of them are but still refused to put a mask on they take advantage of the ppl in the community because they know there is no other driving school in this area. The young guy instructor tried to talk to me and asked me for my Facebook and Instagram instead of teaching me what I needed to learn to pass my road test I’m so done with this place and will shop else where even if I have to pay more. Wish I could give this place 0 stars I would GREAT WAY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE COMMUNITY!!!!!!!!!!!!"
