I failed my road test when I was 18 and waited 11 years to drive a car again. I decided to go with Left Turn Driving School due to their close proximity to me. My instructor, Valeriy, was great- calm, patient, and took the time to iron out repeated errors. I took about 10 lessons over the course of 5 weeks- on quiet streets, busy streets, and highways- and passed my road test two weeks ago. I have driven almost every day since getting my license and I am feeling good because I was taught not just to pass the road test, but to drive.

I just passed my road test a few hours ago from the first try and I am so so happy! The Left Turn is a great school! I am very greateful to my amazing driver instructor Isaac. He is very patient, nice, smart, respectful and very experienced instructor. I felt very comfortable with him and confident during the driving. He makes you feel comfortable like you are a professional driver from the first class. I always had fear of driving before and now after just 4 classes with Isaac I am totally fine!

I took several lessons to recover my driving skills after not being behind the wheel for over 10 years. First of all, it was very easy to reach the school to schedule lessons. Both instructors I worked with, Sam and Isaac, were great. They were both always on time for our lessons. Their cars were new, clean, and felt good to drive. They gave me lots of useful tips and were a pleasure to learn from. Isaac even helped me feel comfortable driving on the highway. I highly recommend learning to drive at this school.

Highly recommend expert lesson package. Valeriy is an excellent instructor. I passed on first attempt after failing multiple times with another driving school. The expert lessons are well worth the price and will much better prepare you for your road test and driving in general.

Thanks to my wonderful instructor, Issac, I passed my test on the first try!

I have been living in New York for years and was absolutely terrified of driving here, but the time had come where I HAD to get my USA license. I bought a package of three 90 minute lessons and applied for a rush test--to be honest, I felt sure I would fail.

My instructor Issac was patient, kind and thoughtful. Besides teaching me how to drive in busy Brooklyn, he gave me invaluable tips on how to pass the test and even more importantly, he taught me to have confidence in my ability to drive.

Yes, the office isn't pretty, but I found the staff to be efficient and helpful and they helped me schedule everything on an extremely short turnaround.

Issac told me I didn't need more lessons, that I should just go for it and take the test--if he weren't so honest, I would have happily bought more!--and he was absolutely right!

Thank you so much to Issac and the whole team at Left Turn!

Thank you Left Turn Driving School for quickly responding to my daughter Keiyana needing to attain her license while home for the summer. We tried another driving school (Globex) and they were very disorganized. Needless to say she was happy with her instructor who provided her with a quick review before her road test. The results....she's going back to school as a legal driver! Well done!

I purchased a 6 lesson package with a road test in the summer of 2015. I took 3 lessons that summer and because of unexpected circumstances, wasn't able to continue lessons until the following year. This year I was able to finish my 3 lessons with Eugene, an instructor who is very patient, calm, and gives great guidance. I had trouble parallel parking and he taught me a way that really worked. My road test was scheduled by the office about a month and a half in advance and they worked with me to find a date that fit into my busy schedule. Eugene practiced with me near the area of my road test on the day of which helped a lot. I passed on the first try! I would definitely recommend this driving school and Eugene as an instructor.

I always wanted to drive a car, but always put it off on tomorrow, maybe because i was too scary to make a first step. Finally, i told myself i have to do it, looked for a driving schools online and decided to go with Left Turn, of course i paid attention on good reviews, it sounded a little too good but i went on and took a 5hr lesson and bought 8 class pack.
My instructor was Valery, very positive and nerveless person. He helped me overcome my fear and i cant say enough thanks to him! I passed the road test from the first attempt! I recommend this school to anyone who wants to get the driving license!

This review is long overdue. I thought having anxiety meant I would never, ever be able to drive on a regular basis and definitely not on highways or long drives. My instructor Valeriy was great. He was patient, gave me great tips, and pushed me with tough love when I thought there was no chance or ever obtaining a license. Thanks to him I can actually say I enjoy driving and drive everywhere all the time now. Highways, long 4 hour drives, etc you name it. Thank you Valeriy and thank you Left Turn Driving School!

Thumbs up for LTDS! Long story short--tried two auto schools before them. God bless 'em but I failed twice. Yes, that's on me, I know, but, instructors need to have a calming effect on their students and it just wasn't happening. Read the reviews about this school and I'm glad I took lessons with Valery and Anastasia. God is in the details, folks. For instance, previous instructors told me about the blind spot, but Anastasia actually got out of the car and demonstrated where it was. Valery treats driving like it's a science, down to how to properly adjust your seat. Don't laugh, the prior instructors never showed me just where I should be and it makes a difference. Valery and Anastasia were patient, professional and supportive. Julia is a gem, who fit me in on very short notice. The cars are the latest models, clean and maintained. And yes, I passed my test this time! Thanks, LTDS.

Overall, I had a very good experience with this school. My driving instructor was great at putting me at ease behind the wheel, patient, teaching me to be more alert and what to pay attention to (hidden signs, lookout for one-way signs, confusing traffic signals, etc.) and pinpointed the areas that needed more practice. I felt well prepared for my exam and I passed my road test on the first try. My only complaint was that my instructor was usually late for our lessons (10-20 minutes). If he was late we'd extend our lesson time until my full allotted time. But if you're in a rush and have other things to do that day then scheduling could become a conflict. However, because I liked his teaching and it was effective, it made it worth it to stick with this school.
