I had a couple of lessons with an instructor named Jonathan Alfaro. I would highly recommend this driving school/instructor if you're new to driving. I didn't think I was a good driver at all, and after a couple of lessons I improved greatly.

I am so happy I decided to take lessons at Bay area driving school. Everyone was so nice and helpful. Being 29 and not knowing how to drive, I was really nervous about getting my license (I have always lived in big cities so I never need to get one.) After getting a job offer outside of the city I only had 1.5 months to get my license. After reading yelp reviews I decided to go with Yona as my instructor. SHE IS GREAT!!!! She was easy going, helped me get comfortable and get over my fear of driving and she was a great teacher!!! It only took me about 4 classes with her and I got my licenses today, which is amazing considering I had no clue how to drive a month ago. If you are an adult and are nervous about driving you should definitely ask for Yona as an instructor. Hats off to her because she is a great instructor.
