I had a great experience at Auto Driving School in Newton. At first, I was not decisive on what driving school to choose. From speaking on the phone with Yakir (president of the school), I felt that I am dealing with a professional. I was very nervousness at the beginning, but he and his colleagues were patient, focused and interested not just for me to get a license, but teach me how to feel confident and in control of my driving skills. Even, after getting drivers license, I went a couple more times to practice driving that are beyond requirement for driver's test. I highly recommend this place for people of any cultural background and languages.

My entire experience with Newton driving school was great. Thanks to Yakir I passed my road test with flying colors. I was very nervous having failed the road test before (different school). Yakir made the experience extremely comfortable and worry free. He took his time to explain things and when I made a mistake he made sure to let me know so I could correct it the next go round.

Thanks Newton Driving school for a wonderful experience.

This business is run very poorly! Very disorganized and it is extremely hard to book driving time. The excuse you get is that they don't use computers and it is hard to keep track of everything. On 4 different occasions they left my son

This driving school is the one everyone I know goes to. \r
The classroom stuff is standard and they have a very nice American English speaking person named Jerry. He does a good parent class too. \r
The difficulty is in scheduling driving

Got exactly what I signed up for, the lectures were fine, and stressed the importance of being a safe driver which made me more aware of what I was doing on the road. The personal instructors in the car were also helpful, pointed out

If you need to get the Massachusetts license it is better to do it through this school. I had an international license from EU and just needed to take the road test. I didn't have a friend with the suitable car to be a sponsor for the road

I had a very bad experience just talking to them over the phone. I explained to them that I had the permit and the lady on the phone couldnt even bear to listen to what I was telling her...I had the permit and I clearly told her that but she kept asking me the same question over and over again. More importantly she wanted to know which country I was from, I never know drving skills very inclined to nationality!!!

I have more than 10 yrs of driving experience just wanted to pratice parallel parking and get some one to sponsor me for driving class oh god I hardly understand how ppl fix appointment with such people over the phone!!!

I would recommend going to other places than Newton Driving school, it might be good but annoying some one is not the way how business should go by!!!

There arent any negative ratings or I would have opted for that!!!

Couldn't be better (I'll never find out either).
All the classes were on time. Class was structured well.
I had Jerry for both the classroom and the driving and he's the man!

My school offers driver's ed on campus. Don't want to badmouth them, but after finishing the theory, the waiting time for driving was going to be 2 months. Said &$#% it and called NDS. Finished driving in 2 weeks. took road test with them a week later. no problems.

Two years ago, my older son was getting his license, we checked these guys out, but their office in Newton Center was plain scary. Now it's the little one's turn and I just saw these guys' ad in the Newton South paper advertising a new location. They're even closer now.
We had to stop by and check it out. It looked really well done and professional. We signed James up for a weeklong session. He says he enjoyed the class and learned a lot from Jerry. Scheduling driving hasn't been a problem yet. James finished the class on xmas eve and has his first driving on Monday.
We'll see how it goes. Good job so far.

Pros: New office, competent instructor

Cons: Hectic first day

STAY AWAY!!!! This place should be shut down. The classes my daughter took were terrible and disorganized. One time the RMV caught them showing a movie to the kids instead of teaching anything, and the students had to stay another hour or two. When you try to book driving hours, they never call back. We signed up for the driving test with them, and they had everybody show up at once at Newton South. Had to wait well over two hours. The man from the school was a complete jerk and obviously couldn't have cared less.
Only upside was a good driving instructor who actually seems to have taught my daughter something.
Literally almost criminal that they're still in business.

Passed the drivng test after the first time, learned how to drive, the classrooms were relaxed but we still learned the material.

I don't understand why everyone's giving such horrible feedback. Never had problems scheduling a driving time, they're really flexible and the Russian accents are somewhat amusing: didn't find they impeded anything.

Sure if you want to have a conversation about politics or the latest game, you might run into a few bumps but I asked a lot of questions and got answers: the instructors know their stuff and when it comes to explaing the rules of the road, there's no problem.

These people should not be in business. Communicating with them on the phone is difficult as it is because it's hard to understand what they are saying with all the distractions and background noise. But ones you get past that and actually schedule your appointment, they will not show up!

I lost money and had to reschedule my driving test because of these careless people. They simply stood me up and when I called them to figure out what's happening, they tried to make it seem like it was my fault because I did not call and 'check' if I still had an appointment. They specifically told me I did not have to do that at the time of booking.

Guys, I'm sure there are plenty of other decent driving schools out there. Please stay far away from these people.

The good reviews are probably from the business owners themselves, because no one in their right mind would be satisfied with their sorry excuse for what they would like to call 'service'.

A total joke! There is no set program for the classroom. My son had repeats of the same lesson a few times. There was no way of knowing if he missed certain topics. On the cards where times are recorded for observation and driving, the numbers are grossly inaccurate. There is a great deal of cheating. Just today, my son was gone one hour, yet the instructor recorded an hour for driving plus an hour of observation. In every single entry so far, the time has been inflated. Additionally, the instructors' English language proficiency is rudimentary at best. This is my child's life, we are talking about. Needless, to say I will not let them get away with this.

The school provided a very convenient service for my son. The instructor picked him up, drove him back home, was flexible on time. The school organized a driving test for group of its students, which went very smoothly, and my son passed effortlessly on his firs try. Highly recommended.
