Here is a review from an user.
After reading all the positive Google and Yelp reviews I decided to go with this driving school and my instructor Morris! It was an absolute great experience practicing with him. He makes sure you learn all the important details for your road test & helps you to boost your confidence in driving. I passed my driving road test in the first attempt after one week of practicing with him. I would highly recommend this driving school & my instructor.
I am a graduate student at Columbia and needed to learn how to drive before moving to a different state for a job after graduation. I never drove before taking the lessons with Ruben. He is a great experienced teacher who assesses your level of comfort and proficiency, starting with the very basics (if you need it) and building upon that. I took 9 lessons with him and passed the road test on the first try. Importantly, Ruben was very responsive and accommodating in terms of lesson schedule around my classes and timing for getting my license before I move. In contrast to other driving schools in the area, with Ruben, you will have one teacher who tracks your progress and truly cares about you passing the test and driving safely after you get you license. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a driving school in the Washington Heights area!!!!!
I had a great experience at this driving school! The driving instructor, George, was very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. I would really recommend the lesson package, as it allows you to feel secure in your newly acquired driving skills for the road test. What George teaches is specifically for the road test so when it's time to take the test, it feels familiar and you are prepared. Another thing to note is that this school is very accommodating when it comes to scheduling. Especially for someone like me, balancing school and work, George and his wife were able to make a schedule that worked perfectly for me!
I definitely recommend Crystal as a great instructor. She makes sure that you understand and apply the theory to avoid mistakes. I also feel very confident, while I drive with her. Thank you Crystal, you are amazing!
Mr. Lai is a great instructor, he uses techniques and tips that are helpful for a beginner. The auto school has good prices for driving lessons, and Mr. Lai is very flexible with his scheduling. He helped me schedule my road test very quickly, and gave me solid advice on how to pass. I got my driver's license with Mr. Lai, and would recommend him to any of my friends or family.
Yes You Can was a great place to learn to drive! The customer service and communication were excellent, and they always notified me well in advance about anything, like if a lesson had to be rescheduled because of a snow storm. They went out of their way to accommodate me, and let me do lots of lessons quickly too. The vehicle I used was well maintained and great to learn with. No issues with it through the hours of lessons I did. My driving instructor was great. He communicated clearly, answered all my many questions, and was great both at praising things I was doing better, and pointing out places where I needed to improve. I did my road test after just 3 weeks of lessons, and passed the first time. I definitely recommend this place!
One of the best driving schools, if not the best in Manhattan! So easy to get to by walking (as I live nearby).I went to two other driving schools prior to this one, and the professionalism shown here is incredible! Even Mr. Sall (the 5 hour instructor) gave us pointers. Today I passed my road test (just barely) and I had Martha as my teacher from this school. I'm so thankful to her and the receptionist (Mari) for correcting all my bad habits. Don't be fooled by the little waiting room! You'll be glad you went, trust me!
I had an amazing experience at this driving school!! The customer service is world class, Stephanie and Iralda are always smiling, willing to help out and answer any questions you might have. There are many drivers to choose from. I was a very beginner driver and was able to pass my road test after a little over classes. The rates are affordable, a great experience overall!! I highly recommend this driving school!
I’ve never taken this course remotely before, but liked it much better than the in person option. It’s divided into Chapters and you can complete it over a day period at your own pace. It’s well organized and you can read at your own pace. The 4 questions at the end of each chapter were easy to answer as long as you had read the material. Low pressure. Great choice.
I drive a car for many years before I move to NYC. Then I did not buy a car and take subway only in Manhattan. Recently, after a couple of years of stop driving, I decided to get the drivers license in NYC. I failed my exam with my first driving school then I decided to change the driving school. I read some reviews on Perfect Park Driving School and decided to take lessons with them. It turns out that this is a great school !!and I % recommend them. The instructor ( Mr. Matis) is one of the best instructors ! He is professional, encouraging and answer every question that you may have. The whole school staff is super kind and supportive. The day of my test, I have Robert to highlight for us all that needs to be attentive and careful about and I passed my exam. Thank you Perfect Park Driving School!
Aubrey is an amazing instructor! Just go you need to pass your test and acquire day to day driving skills which will benefit you in the long run. It is because of his tips and classes that I passed my test in the first attempt. Would recommend Aubrey to anyone who wants to drive well and ace their test! Thank you Aubrey!
If I could give this driving school stars, I would! Like many New Yorkers, I waited the most I could to get my license. Never have driven in my years of life, I was doubtful I could get my license as fast as I did. The instructors, Luis and Sayed, made my learning experience as smooth as possible. They explained every step and attentively guided me throughout each lesson. My driving skills and knowledge was put to the test during our mock road test. Knowing exactly what I mastered and what I needed to focus more on really helped me build confidence going into the real test. Most driving schools just instruct but with Barnes driving school you will leave as a confident driver ready for test day.
I had a positive experience with Go Green driving school. My instructor Rafael was very easygoing and patient with me. He taught me everything I needed to know and went over and over again with the things he saw I needed extra help with for driving and passing my road test. I passed the test on the first try thanks to his way of teaching, / recommend this school. Thanks Santos and Rafael!! Santos the owner is very prompt and helpful as well.
mr Carlos is the best teacher for u trust me.
Outstanding school and instructors! I never drove before and they got me ready for my driving exam in less than 2 months (I took one lesson a week). The instructor I mainly worked with (Junior) was thorough, informative and patient. I also praise the fact that they got my group to our road exam early and first on line! I will recommend ANYONE to use Easy To Learn Driving School to get you prepared for your driving exam and beyond!
Start Date Of CDL Journey : 3// Test date: 4// Status: PASSED My CDL Journey has had a lot of ups and downs. I came from another school where the instructors didn’t care about you and were always in a rush to teach you something and will get upset if you didn’t do something right. Once I signed up to this school the prices were just right, the instructors and the staff cared about you, they are very hands on with the students. The instructor that I took classes was with PATRICK, he’s very very very good, very patient, and very passionate about his job. He puts you in a position to win, and he actually cares about his students. Want to give a big shout out to Elliot and the staff for being there for the students !!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Photos 📸 - Pic 1 - Schools Truck, One Of Many Of The Trucks They Have Pic 2 - CDL DMV OFFICIAL TESTING CITE
A long overdue review! I had zero experience behind a wheel and was definitely prone to being nervous. Joel was literally the best instructor one could ask for. I didn't realize how much about road safety and practical driving knowledge I learned from him until I became a driver myself. Knowing how to maintain your position and avoiding getting stuck at the intersection is important especially in New York. And not many drivers learned that through instructors. Even my friends who have experience for years find it challenging to maneuver through the traffic in the city. Wilma and Emy were also great and friendly working around my schedule.
Catherine is a great teacher and really patient. She easily explains the mechanics of the car and how to drive safely and comfortably. She never gets annoyed when I forget the simple things. She constantly hammers the knowledge I need to know and gives great advice and will recommend more classes if she believes you will benefit from them. Met a few other staff such as Sean who is a great and chill guy. The collective vibe all around is good and enjoyable to be around. With these lessons I gotten very comfortable with driving whereas at the beginning I was very nervous about being behind the wheel.
I’ve had only wonderful experiences at revolution driving school. My driving instructor Kim was absolutely amazing!! I had gone to a previous driving school which wasn’t very helpful. However, since the moment I sat in the car with Kim she made me feel confident. She is very patient, kind, and extremely skilled. She lets you know what you need to work on and will help you in every way. I really struggled with parking and she taught me every possibility to park (if im far from the curb or close to the curb). I passed my road test and seriously have her to thank! Now I will be taking my highway lessons with her :) The front desk staff and Karla are also very kind and patient. I must have changed my road tests and lessons a million times due to work (sorry!), yet Karla and the front desk were very VERY patient and helpful when rescheduling me. Thank you everyone, I would % recommend revolution driving school. Other schools may be more affordable but the amount of care and knowledge here does not compare!
Teacher was awesome in class make you understand very well what’s this class for it I will definitely recommend to my family and friend % to use this school services thanks teacher david
