I passed the driving test. I had 3 lessons with Max and he explained to me in detail what I should be doing and also why I should be doing it. We worked together over 3 lessons to gradually iron out the maneuvers I was having trouble with. Mahasty took me to me driving test and her last minute tips were very helpful. Both Max and Mahasty do everything they can to make sure you pass.

Mahasty and Max taught me a LOT about driving laws and things to look out for while in urban areas. They were both practical and punctual. They even came to pick me up and then drop me at my office for driving lessons. I also took my driving exam using their car and I finally passed!

I had a great experience with both, Mahasty and Max.

Highly recommended if you are a first time driver or are new to the states.

When I started with Max, I did not even have steering wheel control but I passed my test in the first attempt! I had the best learning experience with Jumpstart driving school.  Max was extremely patient, kind and friendly with me. He took great effort in preparing me for my driving test. He prepared me even for worst case scenarios during mock tests and I found this very helpful. Though the dmv where I was taking my driving test was far from my place, he made sure I got enough practice around the dmv. On the day of the test, I was very nervous, but he made it a lot easier by lightening the situation with humor. I strongly recommend this driving school.
