Business Description
Established in 1976, Austin Driving School is a driving school, with offices in Austin, Arlington, College Station, Fort Worth, Garland, Pflugerville, Rount Rock, San Antonio, Temple and Waco, Ariz. Each of the company s locations is state licensed and bonded as required by law. The school offers the state required 32 hours of classroom theory and 14-hour in-car drivers education programs, year-round. Its classroom training program requires students to attend two hour classes each scheduled class day, and subsequently qualifies them to receive a learner's permit after three days. After receiving the instructional permit, students can begin the behind-the-wheel phase of their training while continuing with their classroom theory instruction. The school provides in-car training sessions in late model, dual-controlled cars. Graduates are provided certificates acknowledging completion of the state requirements for driver education, and that makes the student eligible for licensing.

I am the person responsible for the 5 star ratings this company received. Due to unethical behavior, I quit my job with this employer. If you do not want to be in a car wreck while learning, call me, at Rhodes Driving School. Need verification/proof of my identity? Ask both of the people who gave a good review on this page who their instructor was. I also have very good reviews on other sites as well.




I signed up for the adult driving classes with Austin driving school just recently and my experience was driving instructor Mrs.Esther was great she went out of her way to make sure I passed my driving test and indeed I I recommend her as a instructor and this driving school.



Either this place is under new...

Either this place is under new management or I got massively lucky because my experience was nothing like these other posts. I signed up for the six-hour adult behind-the-wheel lessons about three weeks ago. I took one lesson a week and used the fourth lesson to take my driving test yesterday. And I passed. And I was basically starting from scratch. They key for me was PRACTICING between lessons. I didn't have any problems with scheduling or smells or any of that. My instructor was friendly and gave solid advice and in the end, I passed after only three weeks of driving.

Glad to be done with them. Very unprofessional, dirty place, inside and out. Some drivers are smokers, and smell if it. Rhodes Driving school is down the block, at least the place looks better. All problems are handled by a little girl out of Austin, the owners daughter.

Very unprofessional & unorganized

After several years of taking their defensive driving course, I will no longer recommend this driving school. I contacted their office on Wed to find out when next DD course would be. Told this Sat from 8:30 to 2:00. Cost $25 for both insurance discount & ticket dismissal. Asked if we need to pre-register & told no, just show up by 8:15. Husband & son took off from work so we could all attend. Get there & told to sign in on 2 different forms & fill out the 3rd form. Turns out there is no DD class & according to the instructor there hasn't been in years. She makes a call only to tell me again there is no DD class. My husband walks out & she makes a rude remark while I'm standing there. I ask her for the phone number & she tells me it's on the outside of the building. Just how hard would it have been for her to tell me the number. Did she apologize for their incompentency, NO! I call the driving school to be put on hold for 15 min & I have to call back as I'm on terminal hold. They have no clue why I was told there was a DD class this Sat. They have to have at least 3 people for a class which we were 3 people. They will call me Monday to see if they can hold a class next Sat. I am not holding my breath . Oh, the instructor did offer their video course at $42 each. That must be because the video is much more informative. I don't know why they even bother to advertise Defensive Driving. I rated this 1 star as I HAD to at least give it 1 star. I would not have even given them half a star.

Not a very professional driving school.

If your child has no experience driving, this school is not the place for them. The driving instructor told my teenager she should already have been practicing at home with her driving.
I paid these idiots over $400 for class and driving instruction. Also, you have to wait until it's convenient for the school to sign you up for driving. It's a 1st come 1st serve basis. To top it off the staff at Bandera Rd are very rude and unprofessional. One day, a staff member was being very rude to a student. I could go on and on with a list of complaints.


I went there when I was 16, and when we would do something wrong, like not look when crossing a intersection the/my instructor would smack me on the leg but I'm a guy, so i did not think of anything, but that was 4,1/2 years ago. before all the church dudes and Michael Jacksons got to look out for people like that. :(



Unfair, Rude, & Crooks.

I signed up for their Driver's Education course but decided to quit after two days. The quality of their classroom instruction was absolutely poor. They had a policy at the time, stating, "You have three days to quit a course for any reason, and we will refund your money in full." Well, I did exactly that; however, they didn't refund my money. They technically stole over $300 from me. That says a lot about their character. I will never send any of my children to learn to drive here. There are other schools in San Antonio which are much better and more honest. I was robbed out of over $300! Never will I recommend them to anyone ever again.




I went in to sign up driving school and the girl at the counter was very rude. I asked her questions about a certain class and her answer conflicted with what was on the website. I asked her why it conflicted and she said "Lady, I dont' have any idea, I have never seen the website, this is just how it is!" Meanwhile during this exchange there was a man at the desk having a loud phone converstion. He was stating over and over, "I didn't hit her, I would never do anything like that! I swear I didn't hit her" hmmmmm I don't know what that was about, but between him and the rude girl at the counter I took my business elsewhere!
