Al the Specialist is a very good instructor. At first I felt a little nervous and hesitant to just instantaneously drive on the highway for the first time, or anywhere in fact. But, he trusted me and I trusted him and though I was rusty I was able to confidently drive throughout the highway. The best thing about the lessons is how extrovert Al the Specialist is; he is not afraid to say what needs to be said to make you a proficient and safe driver.

Before taking driving lessons, I decided to search up the top rated driving schools there is in Philadelphia. I found out that many people rated Al 5 stars, so I gave it a try. I agree with the others giving him a 5 star. He is a very good instructor. He gave me driving lessons in a brand new 2012 car, so the driving was smooth. My first day with Al was to drive to I-95. I was nervous, but Al was able to calm me down. Al the specialist indeed.

JAMES THE INSTRUCTOR: As the name implies I learnt driving from Mr. James and passed the exam at a go. So what's the big deal? The deal is while learing how to drive I also learnt from Mr. James how to drive good, then better and then well... I am not the best driver around yet because I lack experience in driving. However, I bet that I have the knowledge of perfect driving . And the craving for being the best is settled in my mind so deep that even when I passed my exam, I scheduled to take another lesson from Mr. James. \r
See you soon Mr. James, and I thank you wholeheartedly for your training that made me a ""SAFE DRIVER"". What else could one expect?\r
And I also thank Jenny (?) or the lady who scheduled all my lessons with Mr. James.\r
Thank you to Mr. Paul as well.\r
Regards

I am rating Al as a five star. He is truly a specialist who is professional and a patient instructor. His immediate corrections are not harsh. In fact, I appreciate them, which allows me to move on learning other techniques expeditiously.
The advice I would give a potential driver is to ask for Al when you call the company just to avoid any confusion and later on disappointments. Believe you me, he is worth it all and you will be satisfied with his service.
I end on this note, if more instructors can be like Al, there would be better drivers who have better driving techniques.

P.S. His car drivessmoothly and is a new model!!!!

I had an excellent lesson. My instructor made sure that I had everything down pack in lesson then 15 minutes I mastered parking. I learned in a 2012 car, which was perfect for the lesson. I give this driving school an A++. Recommend everyone to learn with the specialist, Owl Specialist that is.

Dave's the best- if I was stressed out going into my first lesson, he alleviated my anxiety from the get-go. He's patient and supportive- definite recommendation.

Instructor Dave is exactly what I needed. He kept me calm and was very encouraging throughout my first lesson. I would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of taking a lesson. I plan on scheduling 1 or 2 more with Dave.

Dave the Instructor. He was extremely professional, and very patience with me. I requested him, every time I made an appointment for a driving lesson. He really knows what he is doing, and pays very close attention to your driving ability. He makes sure you know how to drive safely on the road, and he really knows how to nail parallel parking. I really liked him, and I would recommend him as a driving instructor.

My experience with Paul's driving school is mixed. I gave 5 stars because of??Al the Specialist??. He was so calm and professional. His rate is a bit higher than other people but his lesson is definitely worthwhile, and more importantly he was so nice and professional to deal with a nervous driver like me.
The person who scheduled my lesson was very nice and worked with my schedule. I also got a confirmation call two days before my actual lesson. Then on the day of lesson, nobody showed up so I called them again. I was told that they messed up my appointment and had an issue. They did not apologize at all regarding the reason why the schedule was messedup or why I was not notified. They just told me I can call them later for another appointment, or another instructor will come in an hour and half, which I found ridiculous. Then an instructor at the driving school (I decided not to reveal all the names) and explained the reason why my schedule was messed up but could not explain why I was not notified at all.
I read reviews and decided to ask for Al. I called them back again and Al offered a free 30 minute lesson. He came in less than 15 minutes. He was so calm and professional! He was just so great!! As I told him that I have a driver??s license already and want to brush up my driving skill, he took me to highway right away. After the 30 minute lesson, I felt so confident of my driving. I definitely need a couple more hours of lesson, I think, but I feel very confident and less nervous.
Although his rate can be higherthan other instructors, if people need only 1 ?? 2 time lessons with him, it will be better, I think.

Al the Specialist is the best driving instructor. I have been to driving instructors before but none were as good as Al the Specialist. The car he gave me instructions in was new so it drove smoothly not only that but he was very good at using tactics to desensitize me to my fears.

Money well spent!!! No other driving school takes you out to a highway for your first lesson. No other driving school teaches you the real way to drive, they just tell you what the book would tell you.

Most fun ive had driving in a looooonnng timeeee!! When else do you get the chance to learn how to drive in a brand new TURBOCHARGED chevy?!?! Its sad what cars other driving schools use to teach students in.

If you are thinking about driving schools please call Pauls driving school.

I took driving lessons with Al the Specialist. I have to admit I was sketical because I did driving lessons with Paul and he controled my car so I didn't learn much. Al did not ever control the car. He has a new 2012 car so the driving ran smooth. Al was very calm when I made mistakes and didn't force me to drive under the speed limit which is what Paul made me do. We rode on the highway which encourage me because I know that I won't be only driving in the city. We are scheduing my driving test for my license.

I've been taking Driving lessons with Paul's Driving school since October, But the instructor I had was very awful. Jim...He was very discouraging and had no type of patience. He yelled at the slightest of things and had an awful attitude whenever I made a mistake. Being fed up with him after a few months of taking lessons with him I've asked for a new instructor, which is probably one of the best choices I've made. Dave is a really awesome instructor! he is patient , understanding Always calm, he gently informed me of my mistakes and had a great sense of humor. He helped me to enjoy driving and gain confidence in my driving skills!

Al the specialist at Paul's Driving School is the best driving teacher! He made me feel comfortable behind the wheel. I was able to drive out 309, 611, white-marsh, and other places. Al taught me how to drive on the highway the very first day I had lessons. If I had trouble, he corrected me. He corrected my wrongs by breaking down what I had to do right little by little. I would recommend having Al the specialist to everyone available. He is very calm and is able to make you laugh and helps you get over your fear of anything on the highway.

I'm surprised I haven't seen any reviews on Jim. He was horrible. I learnt absouletly nothing but everything else irrevelant like how he got to start teaching driving.

I told him the day before that all I needed was a brush up course being that I had failed my first drivers test and I taught maybe I might need some help from a professional. He spent a good twenty minutes getting gas on my 2 hr time and before I Roget it seemed like he only cared for the 80 bucks I had to pay him. I didn't have the cash on me then and he wouldn't let me pay after the lessson instead 20 minutes of my time was gone for gas and Me getting my cash from an Atm which only took about a miniute.

He was very discouraging and had 0 patience. He yelled and screamed at the slightest thing. Also even before we got started i asked him to take me to d test sight and he wouldn't budge. Not only was my time wasted, but 80 bucks I coulda used for a better instructor. Not surprising. I failed my test 2 days later. But I have finally passed on the 3 rd try with just some words of advise on a drive on the test route with a rental car lady at the DMV named Stacy. She told me exactly what I had done wrong on the test drive and surely if she hadn't told me what I had done wrong and what I needed to do it would have been another fail!

Paul's Driving School is one of the best driving schools around, i highly recommend alot of people to take their lessons there. I got "" Al The Specialist"" as my instructor. He made me feel extremely confortable and i was about to drive, without being nervous or scared. Also, i never drove on the highway or was able to parallel park. Al was able to teach me to drive on the highway the very first day and was able to teach me how to park within 10 mins. I was able to learn how to drive and park within the first 2 lessons of driving with him. He is worth every penny. I highly recommend having him. I was to be a very nervou driver until driving along with him. He is very calm and is able to make you laugh and get over your fear of driving on the highway or anywhere.

I just got finished getting my first lesson with ""AL the specialist"" and I must say I'm impressed. I'm a VERY nervous driver...an his bubbly and joyful attitude made me calm down. I really freaked out when he told me my first lesson I would be on the expressway. I didn't think I could do it, he assured me I could. And before i knew it...I was driving down I-95 and my heart wasn't beating out of my chest. He gives you 'tough love"" and the end result is phenomenal! I will definitely be going back to this school again.

From the start of setting up my appointment to actually having everything was done easily. ""AL The Specialist "" was my driving instructor who made sure i was comfortable the whole time. He was able to show me all my mistakes at the end of my class and when i made a mistake able to stop it immediately with the brake on his side. If you seem like your nervous he knows how to break you right out of that and make you laugh. By the end of the first lesson you will know how to drive on the high way and know that your a better driver than you were before. I feel very comfortable now behind the wheel and i am sure that i will get my license on the first try !!!!

From the start I felt uncomfortable, but didnt want to be overly judgmental of their lack of professionalism. The young women answering the phone seemed lackadaisical and WAS totally incompetent of setting up an appointment. After I did set up the appointment, the driver Jim called from his personal cell phone to cancel. I was taken back because of how unprofessional and shady he sounded on the phone. Point blank, he sounded like a bum. I rescheduled another time with him, but knew as soon as I got off the phone I would be calling to cancel with the company. Before I had the chance to do so, I received more calls from the driver and voice messages. He was trying to cancel and reschedule again. This was after I told him I was on my way to work that day. I finally got fed up with his calls and after my day at work called the next morning to cancel with the company. I also made it clear that I did not want any more callsfrom Jim. They did not ask why I canceled whatsoever, which I found strange. I continued to receive calls till 9:00PM, again which I found again very strange. THESE DRIVERS ARE SUBCONTRACTED BY PAULS DRIVING SCHOOL!!!!!!! When I called another company to schedule lessons, I felt I had to askabout their drivers certifications and background checks, and of course if they were subcontracted. They of course had every answer to my questions, like a real professional business would. At that point, I told them of my experience with this company. They informed me that they have heard somany bad things about this school and my story seemed similar to others. If you read all of the BAD reviews on this site, youll notice that often people ask how the good reviews could possibly be real. I know now that they are all fabricated. I feel somewhat obligated to review this company.I am in my mid-twenties, and do feel slightly nervous learning how to drive. I couldnt imagine putting a 16yr old child in the hands of Pauls driving school.

Having drtiving lessons with ""Al the Specialist"" was awesome. I told him I had to have my license in one week so that I could get a job. He smiled and said ""Why are we still talking we should be driving."" He always picked me up on time from my house because I hate waiting. On our first trip out it was raining and "" Al the Specialist"" took me out on I 95. What a surprise! I was a little nervous because I had never drove a car before but I couldn't believe Al had me driving like a professional. It was awesome. I was wheeling that little blue car like I had driven for years. I didn't want to stop but my hour was over. When you are in the car ""Al the Specialist"" never yells at you. He always make you feel like you can do this if you just listen to everything he says. The second time I was out it was raining again. We practice turn after turn after turn, then we practice parrallell parking. It was hard at first but ""Al the Specialist"" told me his secret methods and I was backing up into a space in one try. After my fourth hour of driving Mr.Al took me to Penndot at 7:00 in the morning to practice for my test at 2:45 the same day. My mom sat in the back seat and was impressed with my driving. If you need a driving instructor who will make you relax and never stress you out (like a parent) then Al the Specialist is the man for you. Guess what I got my license today with only 6 hours of training.

I called the driving school in a panic because I needed a car to rent for my driving test the next day and a few brush up lessons. I spoke to the specialist and he immediately calmed me down and told me all his students pass on the first try. We practised for a total of 3 hours and i then the next day I had my test. Al was always punctual and spent a little more time giving extra tips. I am ecstatic that I have my drivers licence and I owe it to the specialist, i kept hearing his voice over and over in my head during the test and that stopped me from making careless mistakes! Thanks Al, you really are a specialist!

From the first moment I called, I knew I was going to have a great experience with the school. The lady that answered the phone was super nice and explained everything very well. I said that I wanted an lesson from Al the Specialist because I saw so many great reviews about him and she gave me his personal number to set up an appointment. The first time we went out he took me right on 95, I didn't feel scared at all! We had a little car trouble that day so my lesson was cut short. But I got a complete refund of my money, just like Al said ""first 15 minutes guaranteed!"" Tonight was my first ""official lesson"" we went right on 95, the blvd, went to 2 Penn dot centers and parallel parked.. all in 2 hours!! I feel very accomplished because I got over a lot of my driving fears in such a short amount of time. After we were finished the lesson he pulled out this mini TV and showed me how I drove, which was awesome to see. I got 2 more lessons and then the big test on Saturday! I have faith that Al the Specialist will have me ready in time!

If your worried you won't get your license&your sick of other driving schools that are messy or not organized with teaching- I recommend calling Pauls Driving School and ask for Angel as an instructor. He is very patient, friendly&a great teacher. I would have never been able to obtain my license if it wasn't for him. He teaches you the skills you need to drive&helps you review what you need right before your exam.\r
You can tell he genuinely cares about you having the ability to get your license&will help you review whatever you may need extra time with. He helped me review my parallel parking over and over again till I was able to complete this task correctly!!! I am so thankful and consider myself extremely lucky to have met someone who is able to take the time&have the patience to work with me. Words can't describe how much I appreciate all of his help :)\r
Nowadays, its hard to come across anyone who cares enough to make sure you learn correctly and takes that extra time to make sure you are driving, turning or parking correctly. I can honestly say if it wasn't for him I probably would not have my license right now. Thanks Again Angel !!! Sam

I did one (1) hour driving session with Alphanso of Paul's Driving School today Sept 13, 2011 and I must say I got my monies worth. The instructions and driving tips were great and an eye opener to proper road usage. Good work Paul for having a great intructor and BIG UP Al continue to be number 1.

First, let me start by saying i am hard headed, sometimes i lose focus.I am happy with the driving school my mom selected for me.My instructor is Al the specialist and he has a way of making me feel comfortable,for example i was scared to make my right turns and he made it so that i am calm and steady with my turns by letting me practice turning the wheel a few times to show me where it was suppose to look like when i make my turns.Sometimes i freeze and i am scared that i might make a big error but Al lets me know as long as i listen i'll be fine. Plus when i get side track he always explain to me why i gotta focus and then he says my favorite line ""DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME"".

I had Mojica as my instructor and I got my license in the first go just after one class and no prior driving experience. I was slightly apprehensive in the beginning as I tried to get my class with Paul many times and he either never showed up or canceled the appointment in the last moment. But after my first class with Mojica, I was happy as I couldn't have a better instructor. I learned parallel parking in the first class itself. He is strict enough for a good teacher and yet keeps you calm and comfortable. I would highly recommend him!!!

I had Al the Specialist for a driving lesson and he is the super trainer which anyone can get. I have read so many good reviews about him but after my experience I can say he is simply Awesome.I haven't done parallel parking in my life time and was the scariest part for me but I myself got wondered to see that I was doing parallel parking in my first attempt and its all coz of Al the Specialist. He makes us feel so comfortable and driving becomes so easy and enjoyable if you are with Al..Thank you so much Al and I strongly suggest Al to anyone who needs to get a good start in driving.

I really doubt that all these good reviews are from actual students.This is such an unprofessional driving school.I had an appointment for 10 a.m and I scheduled it way ahhead of time and the driver never showed up.I called their multiple times and when the girl finally picked up the phone,she told me ""Oh I am not sure what happened because the driver is not picking up his phone""I am so freaking annoyed with them.I cancelled all my plans for today just for this stupid driving school.They are so unprofessional.It makes complete sense why they are the cheapest!!!Please save your time and money and stay away from this stupid school!!!

I had Al as a driver specialist and this guy is truly amazing. He helped me get my license in a very short period of time and when I say short I mean less than two hours. He put me into his schedule at the very last minute and still got the job done. He give awesome tips and is truly passionate about his work. You can tell that he actually cares whether or not you know what you are doing behind the wheel. Initially I went with another school that was no where near as helpful as this one. I am super happy that I was able to go out on the road with Al and I would like to really send my thanks for helping me get my license before making this big move to Texas!!!

I had mohican im not sure if thats how you spell his name. I did the special where you get 3 days and they take you to your drivers test and practice before hand for about 340 dollars. I had my permit since i was 15 and I was 18 when I started using them. Mohican is the best he made me so comfortable was always at my house on time and watched everything I did while letting me drive. I would suggest this place and suggest him. I got my drivers license on my birthday july 13th and I was so happy. I suggest everyone to get Mohican, he knows people at most of the penndots and is friendly overall. Why go to places that are $600 to learn the same thing here. :)

Angel is an awesome driving instructor. He helped me learn how to drive on highway, something I have always wanted to learn how to do. He is very patient, never yells, and very encouraging - very important aspects of a driving instructor.

Al the specialist is a very good driving instructor. Took me on the highway on my first lesson and I had a great time.
I believe that it would be beneficial for any who wants to get their license quickly and inexpensively to use this instructor.
