She is thorough in her lessons and describes the instructions in great detail with the help of toy cars. She is highly encouraging and always available on WhatsApp for any clarification if needed. Lets you learn from your mistakes instead of just giving theoretical knowledge like when I rotated the steering wheel in the wrong directing while parking on the hill, she encouraged me to move the car a bit to understand why wheels need to be moved in the other direction. She encourages you to make notes every day and review them the same day. These come in handy when you are practicing alone or for the driving test.

Kuljinder is very detail oriented and I think its a must for new learners to get her guidance to get the concept right! I learned from her and cleared my road test after 5 classes. Thanks to her for great coaching!

Kiljinder is an awesome instructor. I was quite nervous when driving at first but she made sure to make me comfortable and answer all my questions. She has small mini cars and a whiteboard using which she explains every detail of the road very well. She is very supportive and respectful. Definetly recommend learning driving from her.

It was absolutely a great experience to get training from Kuljinder Ma'am. I would definitely recommend this driving school. Your confidence level will naturally increase right after the first class with her and you will be inspired to do more practice. She provided very clear and concise feedback on what my mistakes were and enabled me to mitigate those with techniques which could be used forever. It was an absolute pleasure to pass my test with Drive Academy and Kuljinder Ma'am. Thank you!!!

Kuljinder is an amazing instructor. She was extremely logical right from the beginning about the rules and regulations, what the rules were and why it makes sense. Constantly encouraged to follow the right steps while driving and explains on small whiteboards that she carries in the car to illustrate her point. Inspite of multiple mistakes that I used to make during training, she was extremely patient and explained how to do it the right way. Her teaching style is something that I could relate to and learn from. I would highly recommend this driving school.

I would definitely recommend this driving school. I haven't driven for a long time, and needed to change my international driving license. I took a series of courses with the instructor (Kuljinder) to refresh. She was very helpful, very flexible, very knowledgeable and very fun to communicate with. I've learned a lot and passed a test today :) Highly recommended!

After seeing a very high rating in google, I approached this driving school and felt that five star rating is really deserved. Instructor madam is very polite, punctual, respectful and patient. Even during mistakes, she made sure I didn't get nervous and understand them completely. Her teaching method is really informative, easy to understand and making it a habit.

If there were more stars, I would have given all. Kuljinder is absolute professional trainer with lots of patience and has right skill & expertise. After driving for 8 years in India, I lost all my confidence to drive here in WA but she worked well on every area. The best thing about her is the way she explains the logic of driving, her timeliness and her responses to all your queries even after your time gets over. She is perfect teacher who gives you homework and review / edit it online. :) Thank you so much Driving Academy.

Kuljinder was very patient with me. She planned well for each day and her techniques were easy to follow. She is honest and professional. I wanted to join her academy for 7 adult driving classes instead she recommended 5 and kept our plan flexible for later. It turns out I did not need more than 5. She enjoys teaching and I highly recommend her.

It takes a good deed to learn a skill but greater to teach someone the same; for the simple fact that you might have to step into the shoes of the one who is learning. A guru is one who helps his or her student to master the art and this wonderful woman Ms.Kuljinder hands down is “the best guru “ when it comes to driving. She doesn’t give up on you easily and she ensures you don’t give up on following the traffic rules. :).I wish I had met her earlier but never the less I am glad I met her.

She is the best, i failed my skills test twice with other driving school and it pretty much affected my self-esteem but with her she was able to teach me the right thing to do and boost my self-esteem back and with her patience of teaching me the right traffic rules etc, i was able to pass. It was just 3 hrs of lessons with her and I took my driving test after. She is really a great help! I can now go to work without inconveniencing other family member to drop me off to work and pickup.

The driving instructor is really awesome. I had taken 5 classes from her and She taught the rules and techniques of driving and parking so well that I can do parallel parking and back corner parking even without using the reverse camera of my car. My overall driving confidence also increased a lot. I would definitely recommend her for any new learner.

I had a terrible experience with this driving school . She is very impatient, rude and disrespectful . She was in a hurry and always kept criticizing and being dirsrespectful irrespective of how I drove . I do not recommend going to her unless you are willing to spend a hell lot of money taking 5+ classes from her. For folks with driving experience who are looking to get a license this is just not the place ! I regret going to her and wasting my time and energy .

Kuljinder is very experienced and patient trainer. I knew driving back in India but due to some unpleasant experiences I had stopped driving, after coming to US when I realized that driving is imperative I decided to take classes and start again, I had totally lost my confidence to drive so was very nervous when I started, Kuljinder helped to gain back my confidence, she ensures that you get your basics right , she is strict, disciplined and knowledgeable. Under her guidance I cleared my driving test comfortably, Thanks Kuljinder :)

Highly recommend, Kuljinder is very patient and very detailed with her teaching and she gives extremely clear instructions. She also does not force you into more classes --- in fact after 5 classes she told me I have went through everything and all I need is practice more by myself (of course with friends or family sitting besides). Absolutely recommend.

The whole learning experience was very pleasant and useful. Kuljinder is a great teacher, especially for people like me who knew nothing about driving before. She is patient and strict as well, making sure you get confidence while understanding rules and what can be improved at the same time. A lot of super helpful tips too. Definitely 100% recommend it!!!

i personally felt like.. if we don't know about Driving.. we will start learning from A,B,C.. of Driving if we already know A,B,C we will start learning Words.. of Driving if we know Words already, we will start learning Sentences.. of Driving if we know Sentences also, we will start learning the Grammar of Driving. Best part of it, During the test you have to use all of them.. it's a perfect and practical way for learning / Practicing the proper driving etiquette with Drive Academy Driving School. i am very thankful for getting such a wonderful opportunity..

Best driving school. I took 5 classes from instructor Kuljinder. She is excellent teacher. Before i was so confused about driving rules and parallel parking techniques. After the class i understood the rules and techniques are very clearly. Each and every class was very helpful to me. I highly recommend this for beginners and also people who know driving partially.

Very good place for beginners or people who have learned driving in other countries. She is very disciplined and strict when it comes to teaching and easily helps you understand backing around the corner , parallel parking. She also points out the mistakes which people are doing while driving and things to avoid while driving. Overall I had a great experience and happy that I chose to learn with Kuljinder and would recommend her to all.

Price - if you do some google search you will notice this school is relatively cheaper than other driving schools in Bellevue area. Time - She will work with you through a text or call usually super flexible (she will send you a reminder text and make your schedule for lessons) Experience - gives a lot of useful and practical tips especially for new drivers (huge plus for giving visual examples (distance wise)). she will give you time to take notes if you want for infos that you need to remember. Overall, I would recommend for anyone who is trying to learn how to drive. She really boosted my confidence in driving and made me a better driver. Do not hesitate to contact her. If you still have other thoughts just try one or two lessons with her.
