Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Most driving schools are focused on just passing a driving test which is where we differ most . We are more focused on creating safe and confident drivers. With a focus on defensive driving techniques that are usually only acquired after years and years of driving. We Pick up and drop off from home. Our vehicles are dual equipped newer mid sized sedans. We encourage whomever the student will be practicing with most to also come along this way we can advise them on what specific things to practice in between sessions. We have 4 different instructors and we have been in business since 2007. We serve east bay , San francisco down to San Mateo , and Marin County. Our instructors have a passion for creating safe and confident drivers!
