Never in a life I thought of the car, but my husband was ill also to me it was necessary to undertake training to driving of the car in 68 years old. My friends have recommended me instructor Valeriy and his son Konstantin. They have a driving school business. I was covered with fear and horror, but these chaps so will organize training, that after a lesson go home and the soul is pleased. It would be desirable to sit down somewhat quicker in the car and to continue enjoyment from driving. The uncommon patience and knowledge of psychology of the beginner allow them to work wonders. Training begins with highway and to every possible road.. The instructor neatly supervises road and actions of the student. In time will prompt what to do and will correct your mistakes. Therefore feels myself it is very comfortable. I have handed over the road test about 2 times and it is properly. Now I drive the husband and with gratitude I recollect the Left turn driving school.
You are The Best!!!

Prepared the road test with a driving school in Queens, but my instructor only trained me in a narrow street, hence I took one 90 minute lesson from the Left Turn Driving School to learn the skill of changing lane, and Valery was my instructor. I am not only learned the skill, but after that 90 minute lesson I am no more scared of driving in a busy street. It is amazing he has such wonderful ability of building up confidence! I did not pass the road test, and I wanted switch to Valery. He also has many good comments, requested me to do everything exactly same as his way, he also pushed me to take lesson almost every day. But with Valery, he let me keep what I learned before, and only corrected the things I did wrong. Valery always explained me clearly how and why I should do it; when I made a mistake, he would not simply ask me to redo it; instead he gave me a way to fix. Valery also does not want me to waste money to take unnecessary lessons .Finally I passed my road test easy with 0 points! Thanks, Valery! I would recommend you every body.

This place is the best!!!!! The last time I drove, I was 16 and nervous ever since. Now I??m 30, with a child and even more nervous!
But, Alex is an angel and a true miracle worker. He is a kind, calm, patient, and funny man. If he can handle me, he can help anyone!
NOW I am confident, secure and excited about driving instead of dreading it! I passed my Road test the first time! I enjoyed the lessons and love driving! I feel safe and great with the baby in the car. I can??t thank Alex enough. He??s a true Professional.
They have a great team, (including the sweetest receptionist) they're accommodating and have excellent deals. Left Turn is the only place you should go. No other school comes close!

Valeriy from Left Turn Driving School was absolutely amazing. I passed the test first time with zero points off and I have never driven before I started practicing with Valeriy! He is very professional, very detail oriented and very patient. I would not be able to take driving lessons with anyone else including my own parents and friends. He made me feel confident and relaxed for the exam all because he makes every effort to prepare his students properly. I would not suggest any other teach but Valeriy and I never leave reviews for anyone or any business but honestly I was so happy with Valeriy that I felt inclined to leave a review for everyone else to use and know.

VALERIY THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! On 03/14/2012 I passed my road test on my first attempt Valeriy was my instructor and sometimes I unintentionally tested his patience by doing what he told me not to do. A major challenge for me was parallel parking. It became an issue because I was trying to memorize the turns. Valeriy realized what I was doing and told me that this can't happen and my focus should be to think of the position I would like the rear or front of the car to go in and then turn the wheel accordingly. His advice made the world of a difference as he was spot on. Valeriy is a stickler for driving properly and safely. He brings the simplest mistake to your attention even if he has to repeat himself over and over. With that he reminds you of what you should have done. Ensure that you do as Valeriy says and you will be well on your way to passing your test. Trust his judgment when he tells you whether or not he thinks you are ready for your test. When he felt I was ready he gave me a mock test which I had failed because at that time I was trying to memorize the turns to the parallel park. Before the mock Valeriy explained the point system and when I was through we discussed the points deducted and the reasons. Valeriy and I agreed that my next lesson would be scheduled couple days prior to my test date so that we would focus mainly on my parking. This was done and I was well prepared. Embrace Valeriy's criticisms as you would his praises, because you will receive them both. Valeriy is an excellent and patient instructor! Don't hesitate to call him right away and request his services. You will have no regrets. He will answer all your driving questions. Left Turn Diving School is really Excellent!

For anyone looking for a driving school where the instructors are smart, kind, patient, honest, reliable, and really assess your skill level and help you learn--even when it is not easy--this is it. Left Turn was an incredible experience for me, a crazy-nervous new driver, from beginning to end. I did a ton of research before on NYC/Brooklyn schools, and Left Turn was one of the most affordable and convenient. My instructor Anastasia maintained the perfect balance of encouraging and tough throughout our lessons and when she felt it was time to take the road test, she pushed me to do it (even though she could've easily bilked me for more money and more lessons).
Best of all, I passed the road test on my first try!
I'm really not an online review writer, but it's rare to find this kind of stellar service in New York and people should know about it. Left Turn is great.

Thumbs up for Valeriy & Left Turn Driving School ! Long story short--tried two auto schools before them. God bless 'em but I failed twice. Yes, that's on me, I know, but, instructors need to have a calming effect on their students and it just wasn't happening. Read the reviews about this school and I'm glad I took lessons with Valery. God is in the details, folks. For instance, previous instructors told me about the blind spot, but Valeriy actually got out of the car and demonstrated where it was. Valery treats driving like it's a science, down to how to properly adjust your seat. Don't laugh, the prior instructors never showed me just where I should be and it makes a difference. Valery were patient, professional and supportive.The cars are the latest models, clean and maintained. And yes, I passed my test this time! Thanks, Leftt Turn Driving School & personally Valeriy!!!

I was so excited to finally get a chance to sit behind the wheel and all of my friends who had taken the driving class with them before said he was good. I had never driven a car before ever. Valeriy made me take a moment and understand the use of mirrors and making sure that we always wore our seat belts. They said those are the basic rules and before we even start a car always check for the basics. I practiced my driving with them for 2 months before I took the road test. The day before the test Valeriy made with me the road test simulation and sure that I had every mark correct such as parallel parking, my left and right turns, etc. If I made a mistake he made me go over it until I knew it perfectly. I passed my road test and now I am on the roads but I know the basics and I am aware. I told all my friends who are going to learn that they have to look up Left Turn Driving School.

We have found Left turn driving school on-line and would like to tell thanks a lot to all that have written correct and good responses about this driving school. Instructor Valeriy present 5hour class, which included computers presentation of the Right -of- way rules. Second part of the lecture was presenting on the magnetic board. We had watching 2 films by few minutes. Third session of the class was passing on discussion about defensive driving. We should note a classroom. It is computerizing and has a nice design, clean and light. Instructors Valeriy are unbelievably great. He was very patient and definitely know what he is doing. He has fairly skills imperceptibly to correct mistakes and to create comfort and calmness of soul, precisely and in due time to prompt in a complex situation on road. It is not full the list of his professional skills. Thank a lot Valeriy for your attention and endurance. Andrews Family, Brooklyn NY

I found Left turn driving school on the internet. I never trusted the reviews but still made the decision to go to this school. And now you are reading my review about the school. My instructor was Valeriy(the head of the school), very nice and calm person with a lot of experience. He is not only a good driver and instructor but very interesting and sociable person. He showed me all the hints that you need to pass the road test. He was never late and never cancelled classes, moreover the money I spent for everything (5-hour lecture, classes and road test) was less than I expected. For sure, he is interested in the results not in students?? money.
My result was passing the test from the first time (getting some points for turning but it doesn??t matter I HAVE MY LICENSE NOW). Valeriy helped me a lot with parking (that was my problem # 1), so on the road test I did it perfectly. During classes we took ??road test? which was helpful because you knew what to do and what to expect. I??m very pleased with this school. I recommend left turn driving school to everybody and take classes with the professional Valeriy.
Thank you LEFT TURN DRIVING SCHOOL and especially VALERIY.
See you on the streets of NY.

Alex is absolutely fantastic instructor! He is the most patient, calm instructor who can teach even the most nervous, new students. Years ago, I took driving lessons with two other schools and failed the test three times. With Alex I passed the test fist time!!! Day before the exam he spent extra time with me just to make sure I nail it! And I did! THANK YOU VERY MUCH, ALEX! THANK YOU LEFT TURN DRIVING SCHOOL!

At first I was skeptical about all these positive reviews, I mean, the reviewers almost unanimously award 5 stars and were overly enthusiastic. It sounded too good to be true! My feeling didn't improve as the first session I booked with Valeriy through their website last January 2010, having paid via Paypal, ran into some difficulties-- weather was bad one time, Valeriy was sick another, that it led to a couple weekend cancellations. My expectations were pretty low at this point but at least I'd paid only for one 60 minute session and was willing to write up the loss. A couple weeks after that first booking, I had my first session with Valeriy and from the very first minute, I was aware being in the hands of a master. Valeriy's tone and manner of speaking is calculated to put you at ease and soothe your nerves while he immediately directed me to go to the Belt Parkway and face the fear of highway driving. As a 40+ year old ledy who'd last driven over 20 years ago in my home country for a few times (and very unsafely I must add), I realized I had a lot of unlearning to do. In some ways, it's a little more difficult than learning from scratch because of the "cultural conditioning" observing driving behavior back home. Valeriy is an expert in zeroing in on bad behavior and, to this day, his voice rings mantra-like in my ear. Whereas others might've thought parallel parking the most difficult technique to learn with me, it had to do with other things. For example, in my country, if you make a broken U turn, you better get out of the way as quickly as possible as everyone else drives aggressively. That led me to "prepare the wheel" before shifting to reverse. While that doesn't sound too dangerous, the fact that I did this hastily often caused me to overlook checking for incoming traffic on my right. Valeriy noticed this immediately and corrected it at the source-- after turning towards the curb, don't rush, shift to reverse *then* turn the wheel, look both ways and back, then back up, look both ways again (the part I often forgot) then turn in and go forward. I had a few more bad habits and Valeriy would always point them out. Especially helpful was the "driving simulations" he'd do and throughout the next five sessions we did, I watched my score go down from the grossly failing 90 all the way to the "barely passing" score of 30. That was the "simulated" last score I had before my road test and Valeriy wasn't entirely pleased but schedule-wise, the die was cast and the road-test had to be done. So last April 1st, 2010, Valeriy picked me up to go to Staten Island and I took the exam. While the examiner sat with me in the car, I tried to remember Valeriy's presence and it had a calming effect on me. But this was all up to me now. I knew the areas where I had problems with and managed to avoid them, e.g. passing a Fedex truck that was double parked on a two-lane street and my usual trouble with the broken U turn. I aced the parallel parking (using Valeriy's technique-- best to learn this from him!) and it posed no trouble at all. When the road test ended, the examiner told me I had passed but the receipt he gave me had dinged me for one mistake. Coming out the car, Valeriy approached me with a huge smile on his face and said congratulations. I said the results weren't perfect and he said-- remember he wasn't in the car with us and couldn't have seen it-- "yeah, you make short turn."-- and sure enough, my error was "Poor judgment - Turning." On the ride home, I tried to remember the reasons why it took me so long to get over the essential skill of learning how to drive. Unlike a teenager who takes driving lessons and only has to deal with "fear," an adult like myself also has a good amount of deeper "shame." It's taken over twenty years for me to rid myself of this baggage and I couldn't have had a better teacher than Valeriy. Thank you, Left Turn Driving School! Less

I used to drive over 10 years ago, but never got a drive license.
After being in 3 major car accidents (as a passenger), I developed a deep fear, and wasn't sure I would ever be able to overcome it.

My husband tried to teach me a few times, but he couldn't get through the wall of my tension, and was only making me more intense.

Valeriy , the instructor and the founder of the driving school, made my fears go away and replaced it with confidence almost immediately, during his first lesson.

The school never cancels the lessons - rain, snow, holidays...
A couple of days after the snow storm, when other schools all canceled lessons, due to the city being paralyzed by mountains of snow, I got the benefit to learn how to drive in harsh conditions, because Left Turn Driving School never closes.

Hard work has paid off , and yesterday I passed my driving exam!

Thank you, Velery!!!

I had a great experience with Left Turn. Valeriy was a very calm, experienced teacher, which was good for me because I was very nervous about driving. Years ago, I took driving lessons with 2 other schools and failed the test 3 times. With Valeriy, it all seemed much simpler: I took the lessons, learned to drive, and passed my test easily.
I also liked Left Turn because I thought Valeriy was very honest about $ issues. He never scrimped on the timing of the lessons or used my time to get to other students.

when I saw these reviews, I thought it must be some ploy. I took the plunge anyway and signed up. BEST decision ever. Alex was awesome, he was great. Has a good sense of humor and is willing to challenge you. After my lessons with him, I passed my test on the first try!

Ok lets just say I'm not the easiest character to deal with...Alex however was very professional, patient and never once did he demonstrate any frustration.

I really can't think of any other better atmosphere to learn how to drive. He not only teaches you how to pass the exam but how to actually drive...which by the way other schools don't yet still fail to produce the same passing statisitcs as Alex's 95% (a lil something to consider).

The office hours aren't so great but on the plus side you can just contact him directly...he never seems to be bothered by anything and is always so willing to help.

I was on a tight deadline as my permit was due to expire and I successfully passed my first time thanks to Alex!!!

Pros: Very Patient, Very Knowledgeable, Great Stats.

Cons: Office hours

.

I took lessons with Alex and I passed my road test. He was super patient and courteous, always called if he was running late and confirmed appts. This sounds like basic common courtesy but it's usually lacking in other schools. Alex took the time to explain what I was doing wrong and really wanted me to understand what I was doing instead of just telling me what to do. He prepares you for the road test, but more importantly, how to be a good driver beyond that, like how to drive on the highway and what to do in different circumstances. I was very nervous for the road test (who wouldn't be!) but his calming personality helped me relax and breathe through the exam. I highly recommend taking lessons with Left Turn Driving School!

Pros: patient, actually teach rather than yell

Cons: It could be cheaper, but totally worth the money

.

I had failed my best twice before coming to this driving school, and my room mate had failed four times, clearly we we were looking for something or someone just short of a miracle. Well, we found him. Alex is seriously the most patient, calming and committed driving instructor you could hope for. He is super nice and laid back, and really made driving a pleasure from start to finish. We got back from our road test this morning - and we both passed our test. If the statistic that both of us combined have failed six times, and that we both passed with this school and Alex first time hasn't convinced you -then i'm not sure what will.

I really have to thank Valeriy for great driving lesson experience. He is such a wonderful & patient driving instructor. Always realiable, pay attention to details and his tons of experience dealing with different types of students makes him understand how to handle each student's weaknesses & strengths.

Never forget my first driving session with him, straight to expressway in the direction of JFK! The car is always very clean & new, makes 1 thing less to think about during the lesson. I got my driving license on my 1st attempt , thanks to Left Turn Driving School & it's great instructor, Valeriy! All the best to all new students, u can't go wrong with this school! -Monica-

Pros: Patient, accurate, effective, honest

Cons: The schedule fill up very quickly

.

I was afraid of cars all my life and I passed my road test on the first try!! This should tell a lot! I have tried other driving schools but almost all of them are just trying to get money from you.

This driving school teaches you to safely drive first! They explain you all the aspects of the test and you actually get to try to pass road test before taking it! That was great - practicing the road test with Valery! He tells you what to do and then after the test he explains every single mistake and tells you how to avoid it. That helped me a lot! Valery is very patient and honest and Yulya has been very helpful scheduling lessons! Thank you so much!!!

PS. Look at other major websites - they all have a lot of 5 stars reviews of this school prooving LEFT TURN DRIVING SCHOOL to be the best driving school ever!

I signed up with this school after not being successful at the test with another school, so I can say for sure that I have something to compare it to...and there is no comparison,this school MUST be the best.
Training with Valeriy was a pleasure. He is soooo patient and he helped me with my problem of lack of confidence. He is definitely an expert because somehow, he was able to tell exactly what I was thinking and helped me improve on my mistakes this way. On test day I was confident and ready to go,and of course,I passed!
Regardless of your driving experience, if you want to be a success at the test and in driving over all, choose this school!

Left Turn Driving School is fantastic! My first time driving was with Valeriy and he made sure to go over the basics with me. Right from the beginning we started driving and he took me on the highway. It had a profound effect as the highway was always my biggest concern and by making me face my fears right from the start, it made the rest seem a lot easier. I really enjoyed the lessons with Valeriy as he was always nice and patient. I passed my very first time and am extremely happy with the results!

I had my permit for 12 years. I was always scared to drive, especially in NYC, but my permit was about to expire again. I chose Left Turn Driving School because of the amazing reviews online. My instructor was Valeriy. He was always on time and very patient with me. He had a lot of confidence in me and that really helped me feel more comfortable on the road. He made sure that I was well prepared for the road test, by providing me with many road test simulations. We drove in a lot of different conditions and he took me on the highway in my first lesson. I passed my road test on first try after only 6 lessons! I know that this is only the start of my driving experience and I feel like I have the right foundation to continue driving with confidence. Thank you so much! ~Seraphina Flatbush, Brooklyn

Pros: instilled confidence, made sure I could pass the road test on the first try,

I was referred to Left Turn Driving School and specifically to Kon by one of my friends who had taken lessons with him before. He came highly recommended.
I must say that Kon is a great instructor. I was very nervous to take up driving again, being that I had stopped driving more than 6 years ago however he made the whole process smooth and easy. He made sure that I was comfortable and understood the rules of the road. With every lesson I became more confident in myself. I passed my road test on the very first attempt and I must share that moment with my instructor Kon, who made driving simple and less fearful for me. I recommend him to anyone I know who wants to learn driving. I told all my friends who are going to learn that they have to look up Left Turn Driving School.

We have found Left turn driving school on-line and would like to tell thanks a lot to all that have written correct and good responses about this driving school.
Instructor Valeriy present 5hour class, which included computers presentation of the Right -of- way rules. Second part of the lecture was presenting on the magnetic board. We had watching 2 films by few minutes. Third session of the class was passing on discussion about defensive driving. We should note a classroom. It is computerizing and has a nice design, clean and light.
Instructors Valeriy and Konstantin are unbelievably great. They were very patient and definitely know what they are doing. They have fairly skills imperceptibly to correct mistakes and to create comfort and calmness of soul, precisely and in due time to prompt in a complex situation on road. It is not full the list of their professional skills.
Thanks a lot Valeriy and Konstantin for your attention and endurance.

I can recommend Left Turn Driving School to those who want to both enjoy their driving classes and pass the exam for driver license from the first attempt! I studied with Valeriy and I am sure he is the best instructor in the whole NYC. He knows all the details of the exam requirements and trains you effectively. But it is not only about exam preparation - Valeriy really taught me how to drive! I chose Left Turn Driving School because of its excellent reviews in the internet. Now that I finished my training and got the license I am happy to say that they are totally true, and I am very grateful to the people who wrote them!

Pros: Highest standards of instruction, great attitute, concentration on passing the exam from the first attempt

Cons: No cons

.

I highly, highly recommend Left Turn! I got a job down south and needed to learn to drive ASAP, but was very nervous about the process (I had tried to learn twice before with other schools and had actually failed the test 3 times over a period of years). Valeriy was a great teacher-- very calm & professional. I especially liked the way he taught parallel parking, which was a little different from the other schools where I took lessons in the past. I took 7 lessons with Valeriy (1 initial lesson to see if I liked the school, then a 6-lesson package that included the 5-hour class and road test), took the test and finally passed today! I am really relieved -- plus my family is in shock since I failed so many times before ;) Another great thing about Valeriy is that he doesn't schedule lessons too close together. This meant that he was always on time for our lessons (he picked me up @ my apt) but never made a fuss if the lesson went 5-10 minutes over time. I really appreciated that he wasn't constantly watching the clock like some other teachers. I also thought that Left Turn was very affordable, especially since I did a package. Not sure what else to say -- I had a great experience!

We have found Left turn driving school on the Internet and we wish to tell thanks all that have written correct and good responses about this driving school. We wish to join all and to recommend this driving school to another because difficultly to find the good instructor, and Valeriy simply wizard. The lesson with it flies by 90 minutes as 5 minutes and leave the machine with sensation of pleasure for the done work. His uncommon patience and knowledge of psychology of the beginner allow him to work wonders. Training begins with highway and to every possible road... The instructor neatly supervises road and actions of the student. In time will prompt what to do and will correct your mistakes.
His method to teach is unique and gives top result in a short time.
Thanks a lot Valeriy it was nice time. You are the Best of the Bests!!!

My grandmother, mum and the brother were trained in driving of the car at instructor Valeriy 12 years ago. To me 26 years and mum directed me to this instructor who were executed. I could hear many fine responses about it, but that I have seen that and have felt during lessons of driving simply indescribably. His skill imperceptibly to correct my mistakes, to create comfort and calmness of soul, precisely and in due time to prompt in a complex situation on road it far do not weigh the list of its professional skills.
Preparation for the road test is simply fascinating game. The high level of knowledge of the standard on driving of the car enables him to test any at a level of requirements of the road test. I handed over to it this road test of 14 times during lessons and I shall tell to you it not simply. I have made the real road test for 3 minutes and without one remark it is simple as 1,2,3. Valeriy you are the best of USA!!! Thank you varies much!!!
Today Valeriy has the driving school and I shall recommend all my relatives and friends only Left Turn Driving School.

I am 41 year old. I dreamed to drive all my life the car. I appealed in different driving schools and instructors after several lessons with me spoke all that to me it to not overcome. My children have advised Instructor Valeriy from a Left turn driving school. This person has changed abruptly my style of a life. He has taught me to drive really the car and I have handed over the road test. Today I have the car and I move across Brooklyn easily.
