I hired Salman Akbar to give my daughter some driving lessons before she took her G2. Salman was kind and patient with her. He has a gentle sense of humor and was a great teacher. My daughter has anxiety and she felt comfortable with him. He knew when to encourage her and when to correct her.And.....she passed!Book with Salman for success!
Arshad taught me valuable skills like how to parallel and reverse park with easy strategies. Was a great instructor and helped to well prepare me for my test.
Very nice and also gave a lot of pointers that helped me pass my exam. Recommended 100%
Where do I begin to describe how important Mohammad Safdar has been in my life. I am 44 years old and I just got my G license. Two years ago, I didn't even have my G2. For over 20 years, I avoided doing any driving test because I was scared to fail again. Every thing changed after my first lesson with Mohammad Safdar on July 17, 2022. Last year, I accomplished my goal of getting my G2; today, my G. I don't the right words to say how grateful I am to him. I hope you all realize how amazing he is because he changed my life.
Salman is a very good instructor and was patient and very informative.
Salman is a really good instructor. I just passed my G2 test. Recommend him 100%.
Steve B was very nice and a great teacher. He got me ready for my g2 test and a more confident driver.
Jayde is an incredible teacher. She was always very patient and she took time to thoroughly explain each concept.
