I took a lesson with JR the evening before my road test and then had the car for road test with Karim. Both JR and Karim was extremely helpful and reassuring and had me well prepared for the test. I especially appreciated Karims last minutes advice, instructions and pep talk while waiting for the test, that truly helped making me feel relaxed and ready to take the test. Thanks to the both of you I managed to pass the test!

My story is I had not renewed my driver's license for several years, as a consequence, I had to go through the process of getting a learners permit and taking driving lessons and 5-hour drivers’ classroom course. I made my living as an NYC taxi driver for a period of time. I was fortunate to find Drive Rite Academy on YELP. Drive Rite Academy is an excellent driving school that offers you a number of classes of driving instruction that you need in order to pass your driving Road Test. They never, and I mean never suggest you take a certain amount of classes, how many classes of driving instruction you need is strictly up to you. My driving instructors David and Raheem gave me the confidence I needed in preparation for the Road Test. Jim drove us to the Road Test, he relaxed everyone with his jovial chatter and I had no butterflies when it was time for the test. There are a couple of things that I did not realize, When you take the 5-Hour Class that is when you will be scheduled for your ROAD TEST, usually 5-6 weeks after. When going to the ROAD TEST SITE, be sure to dress for the weather There will be no cover from the weather, in case it rains etc. I highly recommend Drive Rite Academy no matter if you are a new driver or an old-timer like myself returning to driving and seeking to become a fully licensed driver. This is a relaxed no drama Driving School.

I'm so glad that I choose Drive Rite Academy as my driving school! The best choice you could make a for driving school! The positive staff and owners are awesome and kind, and always work with you. I recommend this driving school for everyone! Young and old! The fact that its small, tight knit, and personal, is the best part. They made me feel like family. Oh and how could I forget about the awesomely convenient location right by the last stop on the 2 & 5 trains :-) You just can't go wrong!

So after 4 driving schools, checking 3 that were no longer in business and SEVEN driving instructors, I was so disappointed. I chose to work with a woman instructor to see if there was a difference - Drive Rite has THREE!!! Each has their own style of teaching and I am proud to say I have found a home with Drive Rite Academy and with my instructor Isa. She is clear, concise, calm and excellent. She understands driving and is able to share that information with clarity and patience - a wonderful experience! I look foward to continuing to learn here and expand into highway driving lessons once I get my license. I feel confident that I will come into my driving prowess with the foundational tools shared at Drive Rite Academy #drivinglessons #vroomvroom??

As a new driver in my 30's, I always had anxiety over the idea of driving a car. I was in a few accidents growing up, always in the passenger seat, and fear really paralyzed me from pursuing my license, but I decided this year would be the year that I would get over those fears and learn how to drive.
In looking for a driving school, I considered several factors: excellent reviews, price, and patient instructors. The reviews for DRA were great, and the price was right, so I signed up for my first lesson. I'm so glad I did!
I took more lessons than other students normally would, because I don't have any other access to a car to practice driving outside of lessons.
The instructors have consistently been highly professional, and wonderfully patient. I imagine they have nerves of steel to deal with student drivers all day! One of my favorites was Raheem, who taught me one of my first classes. He has a great sense of humor and manner that puts you at ease. My absolute savior behind the wheel, though, has got to be Nick! I can't say enough good about him. He instills you with confidence and self-esteem and explains the mental work beyond simple muscle memory that goes into being a safe driver. He's the perfect kind of teacher: the kind that makes you want to succeed!
Now that I've passed my road test, I look forward to returning to DriveRite to take my highway lessons!

Had some wonderful instructors from day one. Shout out to Jason with his illustrations, Andre for his wits and humor, Jim for his humor and assistance and Scott for his patience and clarity. These instructors had a huge impact on the knowledge I gained while behind the wheel as a first time driver license seeker. Always felt welcomed in the office. Wonderful receptionist at the Flatbush location.

Reserving a lesson for the day of the road test was probably the smartest thing I could've done! I had Simon and he was very reassuring and the simulated road test experience really helped prepare me for my test. Every instructor I had at Drive Rite was instrumental in my passing and I am very happy with my decision to take my lessons with them! They were always very accommodating and I always felt calm and confident behind the wheel and it was all because of incredible instructors like Ronald, Monique, and Simon, etc!! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get their license and I will likely be returning for a highway lesson! Thanks again to Drive Rite for making this process enjoyable & less anxiety-inducing!!

I am incredibly impressed and very grateful to drive rite. Their instructors are absolutely amazing. I started w not just zero knowledge but also incredibly high anxiety about driving. I was literally terrified of it and had quit classes elsewhere at least two times before. Their instructors were calm, friendly, reassuring, incredibly good at guiding and always had helpful ideas or were happy to show something in a different way. They were able to explain in depth not just what I needed to do but why and how it worked, how to think through the driving so I could not only repeat the tasks mechanically but adjust them to driving conditions. I took a bunch of lessons w what I think must be most of the instructors : Andre, David, Donald, Jenny, Jim, Kevin, Monique, Ronald, Rebecca. Each and every one was superb. I literally was impressed w each and every one. I'd especially recommend Jenny, Monique, Rebecca, Andre. They all not just know the job and how to teach, but are enthusiastic and put in genuine effort and care. I went from scared of driving to fairly calm and on a rare occasion enjoying it and I pretty much owe that confidence and command of the wheel to them. Highly recommend!

By far the best driving school in New York City. Being conveniently located near Brooklyn College, where I attend, the overall environment was very roomy, clean, and organized. This was the second time I applied for my license, with my first being two years ago at AAAA Secure Driving School at Sheepshead Bay. Unfortunately, I did not pass my road exam. For this school, I went to take my classes this summer, mostly on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. And occasionally on Thursdays, as well as one Friday before my road exam. The driving instructors were very likable and easy to understand and warm up to and they gave me tips on interesting driving tips that I never knew or done before. On the day of my road exam early this month, I was given a new instruction from the driver who escorted me and some other test-takers to our road test location, which is Seaview Avenue, which I also went to 2 years ago to take my first test. I got nervous prior to it and I was questioning him constantly about it. When I took the test, I ended up doing surprisingly well, resulting in an overall total of 90%. All the practice I got from the school had paid off beautifully and now that I got my license last week, I'm ready to hit the road. In fact, I practiced driving to my first location, which is a CVS near my home. So overall, if you want a good driving school, Drive Rite Academy is your answer.

DriveRite is great! Special thanks to Andy for giving me calm and educated lessons before my road test. The day of my test I had a lesson with him and he kept me feeling confident! I did very well on my test due to the team of instructors I had: Lenet, Jim, Issa and Andy! I would recommend DriveRite to anyone who wants clean and functional cars and instructors that know what they are doing!

Hello there! I'm a big fan of Drive Rite Academy. As an older license holder but nervous driver - I contacted Drive Rite Academy for the Path Plus Package - this included three 45-minute lessons, and two 1hr 30 min highway lessons. I had instructors Emmanuel, Dane, and David. I really enjoyed them all - all wer very relaxed, confident, and easy to drive with. I learned a bunch and now feel more confident behind the wheel. I'm definitely going to reach out & schedule more lessons when / if I need some brush up session while living in New York (!). I can't say enough good things, especially when it comes to quality & price.

Hello! I would like to thank Drive Rite for giving me the opportunity to get back on my feet again with driving. I want to thank Garth for giving me my one 45 min lesson because the following day was my road test. I failed 2 days prior of me taking the test again before I passed. I failed because I thought I knew all the rules in the book but clearly I didn't. I was a bit rusty but thanks to Garth. I passed. I want to say thank you Drive Rite for your services. Office is very clean. Staffs are wonderful, even the teacher Jim. He has a wonderful sense of humor. Thanks again. I would highly recommend drive rite to my friends and family. Thank you!
