I took six 2 hour sessions of driving lessons with Alfa Driving School, and my instructor was Jim Bell. I haven't written many reviews but I had to come online and write a review about Jim Bell. I would HIGHLY recommend Jim to anyone who's in need of a driving instructor. From my very first lesson he made me feel totally comfortable behind the wheel. One of Jim's many great qualities is that he can really help build your driving confidence. He takes your weak points, and really emphasizes in making them stronger. Jim also makes driving lessons with him very enjoyable. Each lesson is a unique and interesting journey to some of the most interesting places in Atlanta. In just 6 sessions I was completely comfortable driving in any situation, and on any road types including highways. I highly recommend Jim Bell as driving instructor to anyone looking for a driving instructor in Atlanta.

Giving up a whole weekend for a mandated dui class definitely sits last on my to do list. This place, however, made it more than bearable. The staff itself is extremely accommodating to your needs. The owner is super nice and will go out of his way to make your inconvenience tolerable if not pleasant; he understands the mind set that the students walk in with. I thought as I walked in the weekend would last for an eternity, but, with the: amount of breaks, long lunch period (long horns on them if you so desire), quality and informative teaching, clean environment, the multitude of snacks and drinks (from veggie and fruit platters, assorted chips, candy, to coffee, soda, and hot chocolate), and the ability to get up and stretch your legs when you need to it made for a rewarding experience. This is an establishment I highly recommend!
I came to the Alfa driving school only knowing the drivers manual basics and what my, very impatient mom, had shown me in a parking lot. In two days my instructor, Jim Bell, taught me how to parallel park, do turn abouts, drive on the street (IN THE RAIN AT NIGHT), and drive on the expressway. I learned all of this in four hours. Jim is a very patient and cool instructor. Not only does he teach you everything he can about driving but he also considers your needs: if you need to stop for a restroom break, food, or drink he will allow time for you to do this. Not long after I finished the course i took the driving test and received a 96 (i forgot to turn on my signal at the end.) If you choose Alfa I would recommend Jim Bell. Good luck!
The was far most the best experience I could of hoped for I went in thinking this is going to be one of those judgemental, finger pointing type classes but it wasn't. We was never made to share anything that we might feel bad about never told that we were bad just bad choices which was very true. David was very easy to converse with and explained things throughly. Ash was very helpful and gave good information on helping get points off your license through a class they offer which is a better rate than any of the oher schools. If you want to be comfortable and enjoy this experience take your class here.
I recently completed the risk reduction course and my experience was awesome for a state-mandated course. Ash is a very nice, understanding, POSITIVE director and the instructor Chris made the course material easy to understand. I recommend this place to anyone that has to take a state mandated driving class. Excellent program, excellent staff oh and I forgot to mention the steak lunch!! A1!
I took the defensive driver's course, it was nothing like what I was expecting...and that's a good thing. My instructor was Chris Vail, he was great. His experiences in police enforcement, the military and life in general were very enlightening. Add his stress free teaching style and it was not only informative but a good experience all the way around...and I'll save on my auto insurance!!!
This is the place to go if you want to get your license back. The greatest service ever. The phone customer service, the personal service, the class and the after service is great. Ask any questions, no judgement, just help! Really, if you need a traffic violation class, DUI, eval, treatment, vip, whatever to get your license. MOST HELPFUL. Damien, Tia, Cathy
if you have to go to DUI School, without question, this is the place to do it. Ash is an amazingly kind and professional owner, and it is clear that they actually do care about their clients. Location is clean, and Longhorns lunch is actually delivered to you on the days that you are in class. If you must do it, 1 Act DUI is the best.
Great class - well as good as Dui class can be. Has free wi-fi and free lunch they bring in to you (you pick from longhorn's menu) and you get an hour for lunch - and there are lots of nearby places to shop on Roswell Rd during you lunch break! Very nice people, easy to deal with, pretty painless.
Nathan's Driving School is a pioneer in keeping the roads in Georgia safe. They are great at what they do because they love teaching and have a genuine concern for the safety of our motorists. If you reside anywhere in the metro Atlanta area, Nathan's should be your Atlanta driving school of choice.
