for all three times I have been tutored, I have had a comfortable and a very educational experience. It is clear that the instructor is knowledable in what he is doing, because he would give great advice and would correct a problem I would have before I even realized there was one (ex. my tendency to drive fast, when to begin breaking at a red light in the distance, etc.). The instructor definitely makes me more relaxed and confident in my driving abilities. I would recommend this company to my friends.

Do not be fooled by the low star rating of this company. Because I kid you not they are the best. I booked with another company (from monterey) and I ended being traumatized the teacher there got me scared and for weeks I didnt want to drive. I didn't complain about the teacher but I just discontinued further lessons with them. I FOUND ELISCHERS! MAN!!! NOAH is the best. He is patient.. doesnt rattle me out . He just brings out the best in you. If you a scaredy cat like me and thinks u will never learn how to drive , ask Noah to teach you... 3 sessions maybe? Yeah for real!!! U will learn. If they are ever late?? It's because they are teaching someone ahead of you and that someone needs not to be rushed and needs all the attention they could get for their money and of course to learn.

When we started the drivers training process a few ago with child # 1 we called a few schools and Elishers was the only one to return our call. They were professional on the phone and were able to accommodate my kids school and activity hours. My daughter rode with John over two years ago and my son just recently with, I believe, Noah. Both kids had great experiences and felt comfortable with their respective driving instructors.
We're all out of kids, but if I had to make a recommendation for friends, it would definitely be Elishers!
