My Son and I were very pleased with this Driving School. Unlike the School we hired to teach our Daughter, Beach City Driving School didn’t surprise us with hidden fees and the instructor was fantastic.

Thank you Beach City Driving Schools! My Daughter did great on her behind the wheel exam and passed. Considering she was absolutely anti-driving due to nerves, her instructor made her feel comfortable, she enjoyed her driving sessions and now Loves to drive.
