To whom it may concern:


Mr. Nadeem is a very thorough and brief teacher. He taught me how to reverse park correctly, as I did not know how to. He also taught me how to do a 3-point turn, and gave me tips on how I can pass the test. He has a great personality, very friendly, and he definitely knows what he is doing. My best lesson was with Mr. Nadeem. Pure excellence.


- A loyal friendly Driving Academy student.

One thing I loved about friendly driving academy is the stuff they are very helpful and flexible with working around your schedule.


One thing I did not like about friendly driving academy is the prices. They are too high. They need to cut it. LOL


- Ashley!

Things I liked:

Learned a lot about driving procedures I thought I knew but actually didn’t until attending this class. And my loving teacher Mrs. Brown and Ms. Sonia!


- Deontay. 

A good thing that happened while I was here is learning something new that I never know.

One bad thing is the terrible videos.

My mom told me about it because my brother went here.

The front desk lady was awesome and outstanding.

What I like:

The teacher and people that run the school are very understanding and always work with you.


What I don’t like:

The outdated equipment, let’s get rid of the VHS and get DVD’S.


- Tasherira Peterson



What I like about this driving school is that the teachers took their time and patience to help the class understanding about how to drive “do’s & don’ts”


Not like:


I think the driving school should change the “vhs” to an updated type so everyone could understand what we go through driving in our 21st century.


- Tamyra Singleton

1. I like the way that we all learned something quick and fast and I like our instructor she was nice.

2. The only thing that I didn’t like was that I didn’t get my drive time earlier.

I loved that my class mates were fun and that our teacher actually works at MVA.

To improve, we need to get cable so we don’t miss empire.

Friendly Driving School it’s good. As the name tells all are friendly.

One disadvantage is-   the correct answers for the quiz are not given at the end of the session.

There is no way of knowing the correct answers.

One good thing I like about this school is that the teachers really love people.


A few bad things are that when you’re done all your work you must stay until the end. Another bad thing is that you have to pay for classes that you miss no matter the circumstances.

One thing I like the most about this school lessons are the fun people in the class, the berryless having the videos to inform us about driving as well as make time go faster, and the teachers sense of humor. What I don’t like is course finish early and having to do and unable to leave early.

To whom it may concern:

I found this registration in my car. When I looked at the address, I thought it was associated with friendly driving school.

Thank you for providing such excellent service. My daughter passed her driving test the first try.
