Im really pleased with how the instructor teaches me and other students how to drive. Im an adult and my experience about driving is close to nothing. Mr. Santos is my instructor and I admire how passionate he is with what he's doing. I always gets nervous whenever I drive but he always gives encouragement(which I really really need) to boost the confidence in me. He really tries his best to help us with driving defensively and always asks us in the areas we need to work on. For those people who wants to learn how to drive I highly recommend this school.

I have to say that this driving school is one of the best if not the best driving school in S.A.Tx. The in car trainners are the best especially the one named JAVIER he teachs great and into detail and makes the drive fun funny and enjoyable. Not only was it fun but I did learn alot from Javi, yes I said Javi he makes you feel like a friend or family. He shows he cares and wants to put safe drivers out on the streets. THANKS JAVIER your the BEST.



Teen Driver's Mom

My daughter really enjoyed learning to drive at Ayala. The owner/instructor is top-notch and very good with this generation of teenagers. The students all seemed to like him and paid attention in class, which is saying a lot for 4 nights a week, 2 hours a night for 4 weeks. All of the driving teachers were very qualified and treated the teens with respect. My only 'complaint' is that we weren't told in time that DPS required a certificate of attendance from her high school so my daughter was unable to get her permit over Christmas break (she has a December birthday). The attendance office at her school only provides the documents on Tuesdays and she didn't know to ask until the Thursday before break. They had very flexible hours for the actual driving lessons, which was great. Other than not having a printed checklist of required paperwork, this driving school provided excellent service at a reasonable price. I highly recommend this driving school and feel like my daughter was comfortable behind the wheel right away.



Great School

This school is a great place to learn to drive. I had an excellent experience when I was learning to drive. The owner is also the classroom teacher and he is a very good teacher with many years of experience under his belt, as well as terrific mannerisms. The driving instructors are excellent and helped me get over my fear of driving for the first time quickly. I highly recomend this school to any teenager wanting to learn driver's ed, or any adult wanting to learn to drive.

Great place and excellent instructors!

I took this course last year and enjoyed it throughly. Mr. Ayala (the owner and classroom teacher) is a very patient and great teacher. He takes time to go over anything you have questions about and takes time to help you out. The instructors are great, all of them have a vast knowledge and are very proffessional. They took the time to help me get over my nerves and teach me all I needed to know, and now I have my license. I even work for Mr. Ayala and know all the instructors on a personal basis. Mr. Garza is my over all favorite instructor as he is funny and the best instructor for new drivers, since he puts them at ease quite easily. Mr. Guiterrez is an excellent teacher as well, taking the time and patience to make sure you know all you need to know. Mr. McCarty is our weekend driver and is the instructor who taught me to parallel park. Me parallel parking? Who would have thought. These are just my experiences with the driving instructors who taught me when I was learning. I highly recommend this school if you are a teenager looking to learn or an adult looking for some one-on-one practice time.

Highly recommended!

I have had all three of my children go through this driving school. They have been very professional, and the location couldn't be any better! All my kids had to do was walk across the street. One of my kids even needed some extra help due to a learning disability, and they were very patient with her while providing her with extra help. I would use them again!

Worst Istructors!

The worst place you could send any teenager. The instructors are awful. They constantly use profanities throughout the lectures and put the students down. The crazy old men they send out with the kids on ""practice drives"" have no problem insulting the student driver in front of their peer drivers. Mr. Garza began telling the car of kids that he cheated on his wife with the neighbor because his wife wouldn't have his baby. This is inappropriate and has absolutely nothing to do with the driving course. In fact, the entire course is a waste of your money. This is not formal driving education, it's a joke.
