nervous driver 3/3/2011

I was searching for a driving school that was going to be helpful and get me back on the road. I came across citi driving school which a colleague of mine recommended. I looked them up and was impressed with their reviews. I had my drivers license before in Florida a few years back but i let it expire. So here I am now trying to get back on the road in one of the craziest cities. The staff at the office that booked all my lessons and scheduled my road test were Kim and Nichole. They were very understanding with my busy schedule. I had Tyrone as my instructor. He is very straight forward and taught me everything I needed to know about driving here in the city. I gained my confidence sooner then i planned and went for my test and PASSED! I could only thank Citi driving school. I highly recommend this driving school to anyone trying to get their license. more

An unhappy client 2/7/2011

The office staff was very nice, but now experienced enough. After I took the 15 hour lessons and was at the road test in December, the inspector told me my permit was not valid since I had the lasik surgery. I couldn't take the test before this restriction was removed. I ended up going back home. I was extremely frustrated that day. I just wasted $900 for nothing. The staff at Citidriving should have spotted this problem right away. They scheduled me for 1/12 and I ended up buying another package for $245. There was a storm on 1/12, but the road was clear in the afternoon and road test was on, but my instructor Tyrone refused to take me there. He said he was off work that day. I took 2 more lessons with him. He likes to cut off time like 5-10 minutes each lesson. My road test was scheduled for today, 2/7 at 11 AM. He was supposed to show up at 9 AM to give me a lesson first. I waited outside for 10 minutes. He was no show. I went home and found he text me back saying "I am in PA, running late. Will call you when I am there." WTF!!! He didn't even have the curtersey to call me to let me know he is 1 1/2 hour late. What kind of crap is this? Of course I ended up failing the test. I felt I was being treated like an idiot. They played me really well. AGAIN PLEASE BE AWARE THIS SCHOOL AND DO NOT USE THIS INSTRUCTOR! more

Learning to drive - ask for Luke! 9/14/2010

Having learned to drive in England and needing my driver's license due to a move to the suburbs, and not driven in the states since I moved here 9 years ago I was nervous about getting back behind the wheel of a car! I took the 5 hour course at Citi Driving and began to relax a little. I signed up for 5 hours of driving lessons and an expedited test date. Citi driving took care of it all professionally and very efficiently. Luke my driving instructor transformed me from a rusty out of practice driver to a once again confident and adept driver who passed their road test on first attempt. He was responsive to what I needed to learn and brush up on, never lost his patience with me even after a 1000 takes of a parallel park, and constantly mixing up my left from my right! Thanks Luke you were great company for 5 very intense hours. I would definitely recommend him to teach you to drive proficiently, and to get you through the test. more

Quality of Instructor makes a huge difference 7/6/2010

Hi everyone. I am very happy to say that my money was well spent here. Specially because my instructor Luke was better than ever. My strengths are anything but driving. Luke helped me overcome my fear of driving and gave me tips and pointers on what I should look out for when I'm on the road. My lessons were always right after work and although I was tired of the long day, my lessons served as relaxation because the lessons were smooth and very helpful. Luke knew exactly how to control the car although he wasn't on the drivers seat, not many people can do that and it is an excellent skill to have in his profession. He made me feel safe and more confident with driving while teaching me the do's and dont's for the road. Thanks Luke! I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn! Pros: The best driving instructor ever! Luke! Cons: Location for roadtest not my first pick more

5 hour pre-licensing course 4/4/2010

I am a teenage student driver for 2 years but procrastinated in taking my 5 hour pre-licensing course. Citi Driving school motivated me to go for my license. After taking the 5 hour class, I got my early roadtest appointment in 2 weeks. My instructor taught and reviewed with me some specific road test manuevers and hoola, I am officially a NYS licensed driver. I highly recommend their service, patient instructors, comfortable chairs in their 5 hour classroom, reasonable fees and one block away from subway. Pros: Service and instructor highly recommended Cons: 5 hour classroom instruction was long but helpful more

Excellent driving school 8/16/2009

I took my roadtest with no errors. My instructor is very patient and the office staff cares. They have many students all rushing to get their licenses but they gave me special attention as well. They were flexible with my challenging schedule. Highly recommend this school to my friends and family. Thank you. Pros: Patient, reliable driving instruction Cons: Busy but flexible schedules more
