Brianna

Wow. Let me start off by saying, today was the first driving lesson where I actually felt like I not only learned a lot but have it embedded in my head as well. While I didn’t mind the other instructors, Robert FAR surpassed them for me. You can immediately tell he has superior knowledge and training. I am someone who takes a hot minute to get my bearings together before I’m able to intake the actual lesson being taught. Robert had me repetitively go over the basics before jumping head first into the unknown. I appreciate that very much. I was having a difficult time in previous lessons with my turning and he made me feel at ease, in control and very safe. I left this lesson eager to get in the car again and again to practice what I was taught. I’m so excited to see what my next lesson will be to improve my driving! I feel like if I continue with Robert not only will I be able to drive correctly but become a master at it. Thank you so much! - Brianna

John

Hi Anthony,
I want to first thank you for taking the time to really help me relieve any worries or concerns I had around what was to be expected. You made me very comfortable in offering me a visual of pretty much what to expect and how to approach certain scenarios if presented. Fortunately for me, your advice and support came in very handy. So thank you again for your assistance. Like i told you after the road test, the examiner told me I did an awesome job, so I knew I had to have scored well at that point and that your advice came in useful. I'm guessing at this point, I am now awaiting my new class D driver license to be delivered in the mail.

Stay well. It was a pleasure getting to meet and speak with you. I wish you a very Happy & Healthy holiday and New Year.

Warm Regards,

John

Uqba

I passed my road test today!!!!!!!! Took about 3 lessons from Robert, I really didn't like him or his teaching style. Absolutely didn't learn anything from him so I switched my instructor to Tom. He was a very sweet guy. I only had 2 lessons with him then the school was closed due to the lockdown. When it opened back up, Tom was no longer working. My only choice was to pick another instructor or change the school but I am so glad I picked ANTHONY as my instructor. He is literally the best instructor. I learned turns, k-turn, parallel parking all in one day from him. I couldn't be more happier. Anthony is very calm and teaches you everything in the best manner (step by step guide) which is really easy to understand. If you want to take lessons, I highly recommend Anthony.

My last Lesson was with Robert on a Sunday. I let him know my road test was scheduled for that Tuesday and that I needed to pass. He let me know he was going to treat each move like we were at the road test. He was strict yet he explained EXACTLY why he corrected me. Before my lesson with him I was not sure I could pass the test. After leaving his car I felt more confident. Tuesday is here and I PASSED MY TEST! I used all the information he gave me and was told I did outstanding. Even the Parallel parking. If you have to go to ONE instructor before your Road Test...Go with Robert. And I have had several lessons with other instructors.

Jerry has taught me A LOT! He made me feel confident and have the courage to take my road test. I’m truly thankful to have had the pleasure of being taught by someone so caring and actually seemed to love what he does! He is very patient and fair! He even called ahead of time to confirm I was still partaking in my lesson. I felt valued and important that he took the time out of his day to properly teach me to drive. Thank you to the Island driving staff for being attentive and providing me with the opportunity to learn how to drive. I feel very confident now that I am able to drive.

Fun, informative and completely worth the time. I took my 5 hour class yesterday and would highly recommend it to anyone. Bob made the time fly by because the information provided and his comedic demeanor made it seem less like a class and more like a discussion. The 2 women working up front, unfortunately I don't know their names, but they were both very helpful with every person scheduled for the class, helping them pick thr package that was best for them. I feel a lot more confident going into my lessons and road test after going to this school, thanks again for all the help!

Fun, informative and definitely worth the time to go to this 5-hour class. I already read good reviews on Bob so it was expected, but still a lot more useful than I thought. Time flew because the class covered all topics and more that will give anyone the confidence to pass the road test, especially with more individual help with the lessons. The 2 women working the front, unfortunately I don't know their names, but both were extremely helpful to every person scheduled for the class with providing information and selecting which driving package worked best for them. Looking forward to completing my lessons and the road test with the bonus motivation boost Bob gave me today. Thanks again to Island Driving!

Absolutely wonderful driving school experience! I went in to sign up for lessons a couple months ago after nearly a decade had passed since a failed drivers ed experience in school. I told them that I was an incredibly nervous driver, and they paired me up with Lenny. This morning, I passed my road test and I know it was all because of Lenny's teaching skills. He is calm, he will explain everything patiently and clearly, and he doesn't get frustrated if he has to repeat things or if you mess up. Aside from being great at teaching, he is also a wonderful motivator. I wasn't quite sure I was making the right decision when I signed up for lessons, but he assured me that I was more than capable of becoming a competent and safe driver, and increased my confidence in myself and my driving ability. Definitely go here for your driving lessons and request Lenny as your teacher!

I passed my road test on first try! I was very nervous and scared at first since I needed my license in such a rush. Bob's 5 hour class is very informative. He is very experienced and you will actually learn many things. Michael is a great driving instructor! He is very patient and encouraging and pays a lot of attention to you. I only took 2 classes with him and he was able to teach me everything I needed to know in order to pass the road test.

Thank you for being so accessible and making the ascent to obtain a NY State Drivers license as hassle free as possible. Michael was a great instructor and the whole process has been totally simplified. As a result, I was able to concentrate on the road and not the bureaucracy, so I am happy to report that I obtained a license this morning.

Thanks again!

I always wanted to drive, but was extremely nervous. I didn't take my first lesson until I was 28. From the first lesson, I felt so comfortable with my instructor. He had patience and made it alot of fun and I wasn't worried anymore. I wondered why I waited 10 years to do it. Only after a few lessons, I was able to pass my road test. Now I drive everywhere. Thanks to this driving school, I did it.

Hey Bob, just wanted to thank you for all your help. You were very patient and took your time with me. You made me feel very relaxed during my lessons. That's why I picked you as my instructor.

Thank you so much for all of your help and most of all your understanding after being so fearful of driving my entire life, I am now a 60 ish year old who passed their road test on the first try! I am so grateful to Bob for all of his understanding, patience and good humor. I went from not knowing how to even start a car, or use a gas pedal, to driving on the streets of Staten Island without fear. All in just a few lessons! I never thought I would learn how to drive. When I called other schools for information they seemed too busy and pre-occupied to answer my simple questions.When I spoke to Bernadette she gave me all of the information I needed and encouraged me to "at least give it a try!" I am so glad I did! Bernadette even called to wish me luck the day before my road test.My instructor. Bob, knows every street and sign in Staten Island. I would recommend Bob for driving lessons whether you are young, old or in between.?

Thank You so much!

Island driving school is the best driving school in Staten Island. They teach beginnners the best they can and help them build their confidence in driving. Their staffs are very friendly. I just took lessons with them and just passed on my road test yesterday (first try). My instructor was lenny. He was so very patient and very nice with me. He helped me the best he could and helped me build my confidence in driving. I used to be so fearful and no confidence at all. I am so very happy that I passed my test yesterday. I know without lenny's big help, I would have not gotten my license. I am so thankful for him.

Had a very good experience with Island Driving School. 5-hour pre-licensing driving course is led by a very professional instructor Robert, who provides useful information on how to successfully pass the road test, detailing all the aspects and examiners' expectations. Customer Service Representatives follow you through the process, reminding time and place for driving lessons and the test. Driving instructors Mike and Jose are extremely helpful, making sure you really know in details how to pull off, make a broken U-turn and parallel parking. I recommend the school to anyone who plans to get a driving license

Mike what can I say about him ? Well he's one of the best instructors that taught me how to drive, he taught me how to do k turns, parallel park, & to always observe. If it wasn't for him, I would've never got my license as quick. I highly recommend mike to anyone who has the slightest or highest fear of getting in that drivers seat and driving. He made me feel comfortable and confident that I can pass my road test on the first shot. I passed first shot! Thanks mike and thanks to the staff. I look forward to seeing you guys on the road !?

Mike made driving fun and enjoyable but also taught me safety is important and that driving is a privkedged. I was hesitant at first but mike gave me the confidence on out first lesson that I can drive and I can pass this test. He taught me everyday driving skills and made me comfortable and knowledgeable about the rules of the road and how the car works. The following lessons we worked on stop signs k turns and parallel park. In only a few lessons mike had me ready to pass this test. He has been nothing but professional and courteous and I couldn't recommend him more to someone who's motivated to pass his or her roadtest. You will not be sorry.

Mike @ island driving was outstanding. I personally searched around but when I read all the reviews on there website it looked like mike was the guy I should ask for. He was very informative very descriptive and extremely savy when it comes to the rules of the road and being a safe driver. I'm fortunate to have a great expierience. This school is awesome. I took 5 lessons and mike made it very simple for me to learn (first time ever in a car ). And the first lesson I felt very comfortable and definitely more confident. Our second lesson we worked on all road test maneuvers. I learned how to stop properly at stop signs. Complete k-turns and parrallel parks with ease. Today was my roadtest and I was extremely nervous. Mike really did a good job at easing my nerves and making sure that if I had trust my training I will pass. Well I did. I passed!! And I'm very happy. Thanks mike. I will highly recommend you to anyone of all levels of driving expierience. See you guys on the road!

I would like to thank Island Driving School for the exceptional quality of lessons I received the past two months and for helping me get my license! The staff was very friendly and helpful, and, most of all, I want to thank my brilliant instructor, Mike V. I started the lessons feeling insecure and afraid of the road. I had taken driving lessons last summer at another driving school and failed my test.

Looking back, I realized it was because I was so nervous and my instructor at that school was very critical and impatient. Mike at Island Driving School, on the other hand, was very friendly, pleasant, laid-back, and most of all, exceptionally PATIENT. His kind and approachable demeanor made me feel relaxed, and when I made mistakes, his response was always compassionate and understanding. He has a great sense of humor, and his ability to communicate clearly and explain the lessons with warmth and understanding made me feel confident and not afraid to learn from my mistakes.

He is an expert at driving and road safety, but more importantly, he is an expert at COMMUNICATING what he knows to his students, particularly those first time driving students, like myself. Mike knows exactly what to say to motivate you! There are no words to express the gratitude I feel for what Mike and Island Driving School has done for me. I can only recommend that everybody and their mother sign up for lessons at Island Driving School because you won't regret it! THANK YOU MIKE! I am so grateful.

I would like to thank Island Driving School for the quality lessons I've received and for finally helping me get my license! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I want to thank my amazing instructor, Michael. I started the lessons feeling insecure and afraid of the road. After some time and with the help of Michael I was able to pass my road test. Michael gave me great advice and tips and I would highly recommend this instructor.

Michael from the Island Driving School, was very friendly, exceptionally patient, calm and cool with first time driving students, like myself. Michael is an expert at communicating and will know exactly where students need the most help after a couple minutes. Michael knows exactly what to say to motivate you! He is very helpful in getting your license.

There are no words to express my gratitude. I can only recommend that everybody and their mother sign up for lessons at Island Driving School because you won't regret it!

Also the 5 hour class was super simple and easy. It is held by Bob and he does a great job. They keep the class light and humorous and the 5 hours go by extremely quick. If your looking to get your 5 hour certificate quickly, Island Driving School place is for you.

Thanks Michael, Bernadette, Robert and the rest of the Island driving staff.

I am writing this review so that everyone can know that this driving school is all the way awesome! My instructor Lenny, was very patient and very experienced. I have never driven a car before and felt very comfortable with Lenny and his directives. He taught me everything that I should know within four lessons and said that "I was ready for my road test."
On the day of my road test Michael Venanzini who was also very nice and patient took me to the site where I would test my skills, and I was more than confident with what I had learned in less than a week. I have to say that in the beginning I was a little skeptical as to how and why my lessons would be taken two weeks before my scheduled road test, however, I must say that Island Driving School knows exactly what they are doing and they are the best driving school on Staten Island.

Thank you so much for being the professionals that you are and thank you for helping me to pass my road test!

Best Experience Ever! I was terrified to drive but I went ahead and took the 5 hour class anyway, the instructor Rob V was fabulous and kept my attention the entire time. Then I started my lessons and I had great instructors, Lenny had me doing perfect 3 point turns by my second lesson and then I took the rest of my lessons with Mike V and he was so patient and able to see the kind of driver I was in minutes, he knew exactly what I needed to work on and was so amazing at helping me to calm all of my anxiety especially on road test day! I passed on the first try! I would definitely recommend!

My experience with island driving school was amazing. I took the 5 hour class with bob and i thought it would suck since its 5 hours but he made it entertaining and he was detailed and descriptive about driving.

Bernadette that works in the office really helped me schedule my lessons. It felt like she actually gave a hoot about me which is rare since they were telling me this is a busy time.

Lastly michael V was spectacular. He taught me rules of the road and ways i can pass the test without wasting my time and money. Today i passed the roadtest and im so happy. This is huge for me. I would strongly suggest asking for mike v. He bas a strong passion and told me he has been doing this for 7 years. Thanks so much. Im go ht the road !!

My experience at the Island Driving School was better than I thought because I never imagined I'd get along so well with my instructor! Danielle was a great teacher and the driving school is very helpful and accommodating to my schedule when helping me book my road test. I passed my road test because of the help from Danielle, and if it wasn't for her I wouldn't feel confident being on the road! Great experience and glad that I feel well prepared to be a new licensed driver.

Overall, Island driving school is good. Booking lessons and the road test was the hardest part. You should look for class availability 1-2 weeks ahead, and book your road test 6 weeks in advance. Also, make sure you are talking to the person in charge of road tests and receive a call or text to confirm the road test. I had to call them back because after 2 weeks, I still had not received an appointment. I assume the first person never put in the road test request, because the second time I called the person said she would put in the request and I received an appointment within minutes. The instructors are good. I recommend Tom B., he's informative, kind and patient. He tells you what you're doing right or wrong, and how to improve. He's the main reason I passed my road test. I'm an anxious person, and the moral support and reassurance he gave is what helped calm my nerves. Good luck to everyone!
