THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!! DID I SAY THANK YOU!!! Ms. June....Thank you for being so firm with me and insisting I do my driving the "RIGHT WAY" and not to follow the leader. I did not always understand what you meant but now after driving 4 months I completely understanding everything now. WOW living in the real world is exactly like you said it would be. People are rude. They just have no patience. I took 1 lesson here in San Diego just to learn the roads and have a guide to show me to and from my house to school and work. Ms. June I was so scared of this man. I already had my license (thanks to you) He yelled and banged on the door like he was going into hysterics. I always knew but now without a doubt you are THE BEST DRIVING INSTRUCTOR EVER and I am so honored that you taught me. I tell you....no wonder people in LA drive crazy...no one can teach them how to drive....YOU should come here and teach. They really need a GREAT teacher :) I miss you Ms. June. I will call you when I come see my folks. I got to tell you about my 2 hrs of hell with the demon instructor here. LOL I never posted anything before but I just had to let people out there know HOW GREAT YOU ARE :) Ms. June is worth YOUR time, MONEY and listen to her and you will pass your test the first time just like I did. PEACE and HUGS

Father of two daughters at Northern Light School (1st & 5th Grade). Both of them are reading and writing way above their grade level, learning multiple languages, along with the normal curriculum per grade. They learn not only in the school, but outside on many field trips (including Shanghai). They have access the brand new computers and software provided by Apple. As a parent, I expressed that I want my children challenged and NLS has delivered everytime. This is my sixth year at Northern Light School and each year the school gets better and better. As a school, they learn daily the importance of peace, compassion, equality, kindness, hard work, and perseverance. They tell their students that they here to make a difference. The school motto is a quote from Muhammad Ali, "Impossible is Nothing", in which the students have thoroughly embraced. To support their motto, the children are often visited by celebrities to speak on how they reached their goals and to encourage the students to do the same. In a nutshell, Northern Light School students graduate with the ability to speak as leaders, in which they use for the rest of their lives. If you don't believe me because of the reviews in the past, check out their website Northernlightschool.com and see for yourself.
For the past 3 years, two of my teens have done their driver education and driving lessons with the Berkeley Driving School. Everyone on staff was knowledgable and knew their job well. They had a consistency that assured me constantly that I chose the right driving school. I have had copmplete trust in them with my 2 teens. They have been one of the most organized small businesses Ive seen in years. The owner in the office was always on the same page as me with payments and schedules. The driving instructors in the car were logical, prompt, and taught my teens thoroughly. They even passed the written permit test on the first try after the education class. I had friends who are parents also that have had struggles with other driving school. Im very happy that I did not have to go thru any complications of several other driving school. I would highly recommend them - they are BBB certified with zero complaints, driving lessons are private, Ive over-paid them once by accident and got a call the next day from the owner letting me know that I have a credit, the cars are great, the instructors are excellent - I give them an A++.
PATIENT ABOVE AND BEYOND June is "THE" most wonderful person. Her technics in teaching driving is so simple and easy to follow. She makes sure you understand everything she explains to you. If you do not understand and can't get IT...she will actually DO IT and show you the correct way to make a left turn, right turn, u-turn, change lanes, shift gears...what ever it is she will make certain before your DMV test that you KNOW what you are doing but most important of all is that YOU ARE SAFE in driving. I have informed so many people about this woman. You may have to wait a week or so but trust me when I say...she is worth the wait and the cost you pay her for her time. I have no regrets. I learned alot about driving and life being with June. She is a great mentor and friend to us all that know her. June you saved me in so many ways. I feel you are my soul sister. Peace be with you always. Love, Peony
took my driving test for the first time and I passed. THANK YOU DONALD !!!!!!!! Great experience. I had 4 lessons, one with Dee Dee and three with Donald. Both were patient and gave practical tips and advice. In my last lesson with Donald, I practiced driving skills including those that tend to be on the test (turns, switching lanes, pulling over, parking, driving appropriate speed, and more). Also, Donald even got me to the point where I felt comfortable to practice on the highway. This was big for me, given my fear of driving, especially on the highway. Some other useful information: The instructors usually meet you at your home or place of convenience for lessons. One could schedule driving lessons online. Lessons usually last 2hrs. Arrangements could be made for one to use the car they've been practicing with for driving test.
The woman in the office answered all my questions clearly and patiently. Which was great because I was very confused by the whole process for my teenager to get his permit and drivers license. I was mailed complete info, DMV application, and DMV handbooks. After my son got his permit, we were able to schedule the first lesson within a week. The car was in great shape, clean, and had dual-control brakes. The teacher was soft spoken, very thorough, kept my son comfortable, and kept the lesson at his pace. He learned alot in just one session - now he corrects my msitakes when I drive. They are very nice people - I can trust them in all aspects. They offer a great service on the phone and for driving lessons. Their voicemail and website state they are a BBB member which makes me feel secure about how they operate.
Our daughter completed this program and she aced the DMV written test ! We were able to sign up easily and complete the program on our daughters own time frame. She is very busy with all the sports and other home work she has. Each chapter was easily and well communicated with pictures, sound and text. We then actually signed up with another Driving School on this same list of schools for the 6 hours of practice. Drivers ED Driving School. Kevin our instructor came to our house and enrolled our daughter and explained in detail what our daughter would be learning. He was very positive and professional. Kevin's number is 949-412-9494. Our daughter is now a confident and careful driver and we feel safe with her in the car driving. GREAT EXPERIANCE FROM BOLTH SCHOOLS !
My son is a teenage driver and as a parent I was very relieved when I found such a great driving school. He was given great instruction and was much more comfortable behind the wheel after only the first 2 hours. They showed him how to drive on hills and how to negotiate a busy intersection and much more. I was very impressed with his confidence. I wrote this in an email to the school and feel this best described my experience. These are such wonderful and exciting milestones in life, yet they can be so scary too without the right support and help. It's obvious that to your instructors and yourself this is more than just a job, you truly care for the individuals, their safety, there accomplishments and self esteem.
Ms. June is leaving us! She is taking off to GA to get some needed rest I suppose. She deserves it. However, HOW will we ever find anyone CLOSE to her loyalty, friendship, kindness and patience. I think it is not possible at all. I have cried over the news and so has others in our community. Ms. June you are our angel. We do love you so much. Our girls will wait for your return. They will be ready by mid summer next year and they WILL wait for your return. SO please do come back to us. NO one NO ONE can replace you! With much love and our best wishes to you. Have a safe trip and get some rest. Amal will come see you in July. :) Crying now so bye bye :( much love to you, Hafida
I recently hired the Berkeley Driving School to help my daughter with her driving lessons. The instructor arrived right on time and was very professional. My daughter said he was very patient and thorough . When I had a question about my daughter's permit, I called the owner in the office and she was very helpful in regards to helping me through the whole process. I was grateful to have worked with such a great staff. My daughter has since passed her driving test. I would highly recommend this driving school.
