What Some of Our Past Students are Saying:
5.0 star rating 5/15/2015
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.
Hands down the best driving school wink

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.

|Text:||"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!"|

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 !
My experience with Mike was amazing. He was calm, patient and made sure I knew what to do in different situations while on the road. I passed my road test and it's all thanks to him. He is a great instructor for first time drivers and I definitely recommend him to anyone who is a new driver, you won't be sorry.
Just want to give a big thanks to my driving instructor Mike. He was very calm patient and understanding when it came to me being a first time driver. In just 7 lessons I went from no experience to a pretty GOOD driver. I passed my road test yesterday and its thanks to island driving school and Mike. I hope other people have the same or better experience than I had. I definitely recommend Mike

Text: "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."

The best driving school ever. I was so discourage at first, but my
instructor Lenny learned me so much about driving, and made me feel
confident He was so patient and helped me a lot.
They are very friendly. Bemadette was so nice too and she wanted me to
call her after my road test, and when I told her that I passed, she was very
happy. I am so recommending my instructor Lenny and this school to family
and friends. Such amazing service! Iknow without Lenny's help,
I would have never gotten my license. Thank you very much! I will see
you soon for my highway lesson!

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."|
To Danielle & Bernadette,
This is just a little e-mail of thanks for the care that you all gave to my daughter to help her get her driving license. I know that with your valued instructors she was guided to learn and be confident when she went
to take the New York State road test and to PASS.

I had my first lesson today, my Instructor Judy was great, I learned so much and she was so nice, I can't wait until my next lesson!!Thank you Island Driving School.:)
DEAR ISLAND DRIVING SCHOOL,
TO THE BEST SCHOOL EVER!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE HELP YOU GAVE ME, I COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOUR EXPERT SERVICES.
LOVE YOU GUYS.
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,

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. I heard from previous students, that you taught, that you were the Best-and you were! Thank you again for all your help. I also want to thank the staff at Island driving school. They were always pleasant and knowledgeable every time I called. I will recommend you and your school to all my friends and relatives. Jillian
I'd like to thank Island Driving School for making learning to drive FUN and for all the great driving instruction. Thanks to them, I passed my road test with "0" point deduction. I will be thinking about everything they taught me every time I get behind the wheel. And their office staff was awesome. Thank You, Daniel V.
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.
|Thank You Very Much|
|I want to thank you very much Rose. She is the best instructor I was so afraid and she make me feel so comfortable and I recommend to everyone if you want to pass in the first time choose the sweetest instructor ever. Rose thank you very much again.|
