With literally NO previous driving experience, all I needed was 2 classes (1hr each) with Mr. Vinod. He is flexible with timings, extremely professional and doesn't mind teaching stuff right from the very basics. Best part is he will ask you the scenarios that you might eventually face in real life and will guide the way out following the appropriate rules and standards. He is extremely tolerant and polite enough to point out when a person goes wrong while driving. He took me for the driving test (as I didn't have a car) right on time and I was the first one to take the driving test after a wait of just 10mins. Even when you are standing in queue, he makes sure that he repeats the basics+advanced that a person needs to know to crack the driving test right at the first attempt. Most of the DMV officials know him too. Most importantly, he isn't doing this work to drag money out of your wallets. He would tell you whenever you are ready to take the drive test, even if it is after just 1 class.I wouldn't really recommend going to some other driving school who have those fancy and expensive packages like 350$ and above.Sincere thanks to Vinod Sir for his supervision while I learnt driving in such a short time. :-)

My last driving experience happened some 20 years ago so I was really ready to start from a beginner level again. A-1 International Driving School provided me with a complete instructional course which includes necessary driving skills, topics on safety and even the necessary car maintenance. The last one being just as important as the core knowledge since I did not have an experience of owning a car. I found my instructor, Mr. Vinod Shah, to be very professional, polite and punctual. His answers to my questions and his instructions were almost mathematically accurate and clear. He made sure I understand the lessons and that any mistake I have made had been properly explained and corrected. During my driving course Mr. Vinod made great effort to accommodate my class timing and location requests, including the road exam, which is essential for those of us who have strict work schedule. I have received necessary attention and instruction from the very first class to the final test. Overall, I am very pleased with my choice of the driving school and instructor. If you listen to Mr. Vinod carefully and follow his instructions diligently - you will have a great experience and will do excellent job driving.

I took a 7 hour course with Dhaval and also used his car for my road test (success-first attempt). From the outset, I was impressed by his professional manner on the phone and in written communication. His customer service is top notch. He always confirms the appointment the day before and is quite punctual. I have high expectations for any service, and he met or exceeded my expectations every time. His instructional style is excellent (I'm a teacher myself). Some people have a gift for teaching and I put Dhaval in this category. He was a very patient and calming presence in the car. His technical knowledge was as expected and moreover, he has a fair number of tips and tricks owing to his years of experience. Some points of criticism: his approach to scheduling is a little unusual and may or may not require some flexibility. Also, if taking the road test with him, be prepared to start very early in the morning. In hindsight this did allow me to get out of the DMV very very quickly. He seems to be known and respected by the DMV staff as well. To sum up, Dhaval is professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. I have recommended his lessons already and would do so again without hesitation.

I took a driving lesson from A1 International Driving School and my driving instructor was Mr. Deepak - an extremely talented, professional and courteous trainer with a very friendly nature! He won't even let you feel that he is a trainer. From the very first day, he made me feel quite comfortable and taught me each and every details with extreme care and professionalism. With his guidance and lessons only I was able to clear both of my knowledge and road tests at one go! And considering the fact that I did not have my own car here to practice, he offered me 2 extra classes to brush up my driving.He is very punctual and lets you know before he arrives. And very honestly speaking, he rectifies your mistakes and makes you feel very confident with utmost patience and a smile. He kept reminding me with every minute tips/hints through out the course of the lesson, each of which are extremely valuable! I am very much satisfied with Mr. Deepak and A1 International Driving School. Would definitely recommend it!Thumbs up!

A-1 International Driving School is one of the BEST driving school's out there. There are no words to describe Dhaval. He is nothing short of amazing. I was extremely nervous initially, as I had very little driving experience. However Dhaval was calming, understanding, extremely motivating and downright the most perfect instructor to push through all of my fear and guide me to be the safest driver I can. He has that down to earth personality that makes him an incredible instructor and great motivator. I would highly recommend him to all learners, especially those who have not had a lot of experience or confidence on the roads. If you're looking for someone extremely positive and encouraging to help you get your license on the first try, Dhaval's the guy. Couldn't have asked for a better instructor, thank you so much Dhaval!

I'm a grad student at Duke and I was referred to Dhaval by a classmate who had great things to say about him. Indeed, Dhaval is a great instructor and a really nice guy. Being an international student, I had little driving experience in the US. Dhaval helped me learn driving and obtain my license in my first attempt. Dhaval is patient, methodical, organized, polite and punctual. He and his dad have been helping students learn driving for years so he knows exactly what it takes to learn driving and obtain a liscense. He also provides great advice on how to cope in various scenarios ex when it rains, how to cope when you move out of state, which auto insurance to take and in general calming your nerves before the road test etc. In addition, his charges are really fair. I'd recommend him anyday.

I just took my driving and learners test together at DMV and pass at my first attempt. I will give entire credit to Mr. Deepak. He is outstanding. Very patient, very thorough, he knows his stuff really. I took one 1.5 hr class from him since Ive been driving for 15 years (of course not in the US). I also took their car for the test, and he accompanied me the day of test, passing on tips that helped me sail through the test. The only other thing I will say is, getting trained from him not just helped me get the license but made me confident that I will be a safe driver. Especially coming from overseas there are so many subtle aspects one needs to keep on mind. Mr. Deepak covered it all. Thanks so much Deepak. Very highly recommended.
