Amaral Auto & Truck Driving School Inc

I wish I could give this "business" zero stars. I concur with other reviews on how *awful*, rude, insulting, and unprofessional Ana is (one of the owners, so no recourse). She deliberately tanked my daughter's road test after I decided not to pay $75 to use their car for the test. She gave her incorrect information about driving at a certain type of marking and my daughter failed her test. Prior to this, she had NEVER made that mistake, but Ana told her to do this right before the test. She often did not provide the full hour for the lesson and was on her phone, speaking in Portuguese on personal calls, while she was "teaching". The last conversation I had with her she had during a lesson and that student happened to know my daughter, so there was no sense of decorum or professionalism. I wish I had read more about this school before we used them, because since this happened, I have heard similar stories. Run, don't walk. Public service for all to know of this terrible school.
kevin mello, I went to Amarals truck driving school for my CDL Class B and school bus license and was extremely pleased with the program and instructors, never had a problem from the owner Joe Amaral or any of his staff, Instructors were great and when i went for my license I passed the first time I was well prepaired. If your thinking about getting your license either for a car, truck or bus I would go to Amarals well worth it.
Very poor customer service.I asked the lady Anna who is supposedly the owner if she could schedule a driving lesson for me before my road test.She told me she could not find an available date.And then began arguing with me,about not being ready. Which i told her was none of her concern.She the told me to SCREW OFF!!.And that she didn't need my business anyway.I'm outraged anyone would talk to their customers in this way,without any provoking on my part.I honestly I would honestly recommend any other driving school before this one.My overall opinion is that they are VERY RUDE!!!
Please DON'T go here! This business is truly terrible. I went to Amaral's driving school from road lessons and she's always late, forgets appointments, and charges you when she scheduled an appointment on the wrong day and you're not home. I can't even call it a business. I feel like I owe the community this warning so you may stay away and choose a much better place.
