Although I got my license 3 months ago, I feel like making a review. Like the comment said before, ""only way you can fail is when your nervous"", which is almost true in anything in life. Even though, Mr. Steve is a nice guy I'll keep my review objective as possible.
Pro: He ""always"" comes on time and apologizes if he ever comes late. Makes you feel relaxed, help you increase your driver confidence. Driver confidence is a must because driving in NYC streets can be a challenge.
1.Some of his tips aren't helpful. I tried some of his tips when driving with a friend and nearly got into an collision with another car. Thankfully, I was lucky and we nearly escaped death. After I failed my first road test, I stopped following ""all"" of his tips and I was driving like a pro. Took the 2nd road test 2 months after and passed.
2. I gave a friend some driving practice in a car and everytime he turns he was ""looking up into the sky where the birds are (literally)"" when he should be focused on what's ahead of him. He nearly hit a child that was running across the street. When I asked who told you to do this, he said he learned it from Mr. Steve from Mr. Steve's driving school.
3. Even though I didn't go with the first road test with Mr. Steve. I failed the road test. I had confidence that I can pass with Mr. Steve's tips but I realized that I developed bad driving habits. Something Mr. Steve failed to point out. He needs to work on emphasizing the bad driving habits of each person and say why each one is dangerous. Maybe more people would pass the road test.
Again, like I said. Mr. Steve = Nice Guy. In my opinion if your trying to get a driving license in the shortest period of time. Avoid Mr. Steve and find a driving school thats more towards helping your get that license in the shortest time possible.
If you have all the time in the world, take mr. steve to increase your driver confidence, ignore most of his tips, and get driving practice with a friend or relative.
This school still has a potential to become a great school with slight improvements.
