ghastly! – Worst than eh. Vitaly was rude, called me a bitch. Stopped for bank, stopped for gas. What the hell, it's my time. I had to cut the lesson short and get my $ back. Got mad because I asked a question and was nervous. Just ridiculous. This business is a joke. I ended up taking lessons elsewhere with a nice patient Jamaican guy. People like Vitaly should not be teaching anybody. Horror show, will scare your teenager, especially a girl for life from driving.
Very good school – My husband and myself chose this school because they organise road tests on Saturdays which was crucial for us.
We both already held driver's licenses from our home country and only needed to know specifics about road test in the USA. We had 2 driving lessons and after that both successfully passed our road tests on the first try. Our instructors were friendly and professional. They taught us everything that we needed to pass a test. We had a very positive experience with this school.
Awesome! – Just finished my 10 hrs of driving lessons and ready to go for the road test exam. I came from a different country with an international driving licence thinking that it`s really easy to pass the road test in the US. After failing my test with the RMV I decided to sign up for some driving lessons. The closest for me was Brookline Drivind School. They picked me up for the driving lessons and then scheduled their saturday road test for me (I didn`t have to stay on hold for hours with the RMV). Their instructurs taught me all of the rules on the road in this country, which I have to admit are different, were really patient with me and now I`m looking forward to take my test and have a licence in this countrty!
Great experience! – I never drove a car before. That was my first exerience and I was extrimely nervious. I told the manager in their school that I was looking for a really PATIENT instructor cause I`m a total beginner and she said that it`s not a problem. I want to thank my instructors so much for the best experience that I could ever imagine. They were really nice and patient with me. Tought me everything I needed for the road test exam. After taking about 12-14 hrs. of driving I signed up for the road test exam and passed it from the first attempt.
Thank you guys!!!
Friendly instructors. Great patience with lessons! – I've seen Brookling Driving School's cars all over the place in recent month's in the Newton/Needham area (i've been paying close attention), and this itself was enough for me to give them a call. They were real friendly, and actually the most important thing for me was that the instructor would have enough patience to start me off slow until I can start gaining the confidence I'm looking for when driving. The instructor did exactly that for me when I let him know that I was nervous, and after a few lessons, I felt like I was ready to take the test! I'm real happy that I got my license and was able to get past the initial fear of driving, thanks to this school! I highly recommend them.
Great school – It is a great school. Instructors are very good and I passed the exam the first time. My instructor was Manny. He was always very polite,on time, paid attention to my driving and not talked on the phone like I seen instructors from other schools doing( Previously I took few hours with other school in Cambridge and I did not like it: the instructor was talking all the time on the phone and would not pay attention at what I was doing plus would not let me to use the mirrors??!!!) I really recommend Brookline Driving School to other people.The cars used by this school are almost new and very clean.I did not have problems to schedule appointments and I had not cancelation from the school instructor. I learned everything I need to know for the exam : rotaries, intersections, parking lateral,parallel, turns etc. No screaming . Brookline Driving School is an excellent school.
Poor Business Practices – I swear these people just want your money and not much more. Ridiculous phone practices and abusive and curt receptionist. AVOID.
Very Bad – Very bad driving school. They will call you and change the time that you previously booked and then no one will show up.
Today, I waited for 2 hours and when I called no one attended the call. You leave a voice message and they will not respond.
YOU WILL BE CHEATED, SO DON'T TRUST THIS DRIVING SCHOOL.
Great Driving School! – I had a great experience with this driving school. They came by to pick me up, showed me all the things that I needed to know for my road test (and after the lessions, I wasn't even that nervous anymore). They were really great with my questions.
I decided to go with this school because they seem to be the most reputable driving school in the Newton-Needham-Brookline area (I was seeing their cars everywhere with their logos) plus I noticed during my research that they were contracted with many of the high schools to teach drivers ed etc. Their website says it all.
I definitely recommend them to all my friends.
The most weird experience – 1. The driving instructor is very rude, aggressive and a liar.
2. 1st lesson: he was shouting, making me feel insecure and stupid.
3. the driving instructor loves $$$$$. not kidding. he schedule me a road test (im thankful) which he NEVER confirmed. I called 2 times to confirm my road test and the driving school receptionist said it was full.
4. he called me on the road test day at 10 am , claiming that i have a road test that morning and NEED to attend.
5. he also claimed that i need to pay the road test fee no matter if i take it or not.
6. he did not give me the possibility to explain myself and hang up the phone several time.
So, do u want to have a driving instructor like this or one to bust your confident? This is ur choice!!!
