I would like to start off by saying thank you so much Vaswani, for your time and dedication. I could not have done it with out you. Vaswani Driving Academy is the reason why I am a confident and careful driver on the road. My past experiences at other driving schools forced me to lose interest in driving. For many years, obtaining a license was a goal that I could not accomplish. I had lost the willingness to do so. One winter afternoon I was leaving work at the Hospital and I saw a sign that said "Vaswani Driving Academy". So I walked in and I asked this guy "Is this a driving school?" and he said "yes!" I asked "Do you speak English good?" and he said "yes" and then I asked for the driving packages brochure. To make a long story short, I had asked about five brief questions based on my bad experiences and he had answered them without a hesitation. He also gave explanations on how the drivers at the academy operates. I then asked what his name was and he told me Vaswani. That right there confirmed that I was in the right place. We were about to negotiate a payment plan, but I was so confident, based on our 6 minute conversation, I paid in full for the highest package available. We scheduled the 5 hour course and before you know it, I was on the road learning. I would take driving lessons while I was on my lunch break. He was very flexible and when ever I had to rescheduled he would always make arrangements to accommodate my busy schedule. Not only did he build and regained my courage, he motivated me, to want to drive as well. I felt calm, comfortable, and safe learning to drive at Vaswani Driving Academy. While I was taking the road test, all I could hear was his voice guiding me through the exam, and I passed. I was so impressed I went back for additional lessons after I received my license. I guarantee you are making a great decision if you choose The Vaswani Driving Academy. Thanks! Vaswani Raymond M. ACM, PES North Bronx Healthcare Network.
I PASSED MY TEST ON THE FIRST TRY!!!!!!!! Long story short, I needed to get my license ASAP so I had to do my research before anything. I called around different schools, trying to find out how soon I could start the learning process. Some schools told me, 'Oh, we're so booked, we won't be able to schedule you for another 3 weeks'...other schools flat out seemed to just want my money and not really care about whether I pass or failed! Finally, I came across Vaswani. After reading all the other positive reviews, I decided to call. What was different about Vaswani is that he wasn't 'money hungry'. He made me feel important and that he genuinely cared about my success. So, I came into the office and sat for the mandatory 5-hour video class. During the class, Vaswani came across to be a true professional and extremely knowledgeable about everything. Another factor that made me want to continue with his school is the fact that most other schools hold your 5-hour class certificate hostage, in the sense that unless you take lessons with them, they will not give you a certificate. Totally absurd. I paid for the course, then I purchased the 10-lesson package (which was very reasonably priced), and started learning how to drive. This is the important part: Vaswani ALWAYS implied safety first. From pulling out from the curb, to broken U-Turns, everything he taught me was in safety's best interest. He was very calm and his methods of teaching give you a sense of confidence. After my 10 lessons were up, I took my road test in Yonkers and passed on my first try! Before taking lessons with Vaswani, I have NEVER driven a car before! Needless to say, if he can teach me to drive in 10 lessons, ANYONE can learn! I'd recommend Vaswani to everyone!
With so many driving schools througout the Bronx, I was not sure which oen to pic. So I picked this school because it was near my house. I did some price comparisons with other schools and this school's prices were about the same. There office is a decent size where they teach5 and 6 hours courses as well. I 1st came to them to take my 5 hour class and to schedule my road test. The person who did my class was also my instructer too. I believe her name was Ms. Chung. There was another older woman whom I did not deal with too much, but she was very nice and gave great advice on driving while I was there. During the class Ms. Chung was very informativive, I thought that she was just going to let the video play and leave us by ourselves. Ms. Chung was great, she answered all of our questions and went into detail about each video that we saw. After the class I wanted to schedule my road test, I was called back in just a few days with a road test date. I was told that in order to use their car for the road test, I would have to take a pre-test with them to see if I needed to work on anything specific prior to my road test. Ms. Chung was my pre-test instructer, she was very paitient and gave me great tips on improving my driving. She even extended my time a few minutes so we could work on some things. After we were done I felt confidant that she put me in the right direction and that I was going to pass the road test. I did pass my road test on my 1st try an I owe my passing to there exceptional coaching and great driving tips that I will be using form the rest of my life. Chris Robin aka Trouble
