Driving a car is a major responsibility and your safe driving skills will stay with you for the rest of your life. Whether you are planning to drive for the first time or you want to improve the skills you already have, I am going to be there to help you. My main goal is to assist you to become a safe, confident and smart driver. 

The driving lessons are offered 7 days a week . We are flexible and we can schedule times that are best suited for you. If you live in the vicinity, I will pick you up and drop you off. After training with me you will be a defensive driver and an expert in identifying risks and understand how to avoid collisions by being an expert driver! 

I enjoy helping people improve and become better. Additionally, teaching my students driving skills and reference points to help them expand their driving knowledge!

    Great driving school! The instructor is very flexible when it comes to hours so I didn't have to worry about other priorities, like school, interfering. The instructor is also very good at teaching in a way that is informative, effective, and stressless. Being a new driver can be very demanding but with Mr Mohamed, I was very calm and relaxed throughout the sessions.

    Such a great experience! I loved being able to choose my own schedule & my instructor, Mr. Mohamed Elhadi, was great! I learned many news things that I had previously not known about & I would definitely recommend this school to a friend, which I already did!

    Mr. Mohamed is one of the best teachers and kindest people out there. He makes you feel super confident while driving and makes driving seem easier. Definitely would recommend to others and the whole experience was great.

  • Rachael

    Mr. Mohamed is a great teacher and he is very understanding. You will feel very comfortable because he helps you correct your mistakes without making you feel stressed. He gives great advice and tips that can make driving feel easier and safer for you. Also, I would really recommend driving with Falls Church Driving School if you are interested in taking behind the wheel.

Driving improvement clinic, Re-examination class for my students to retake the test at the Dmv, Helped my student on her road test last week. Training students on a daily basis. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

My advice is to look for someone who is been in the field and can stay calm under pressure. Also, the instructor must not hold the wheel the entire time so the student is learning. Additionally, making sure not to use the dual break and gas on my side so that the student is in control and should only be used when necessary. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Having their learner's permit! Knowing how much experience and knowledge the instructor possesse in the field and making sure they learn in a comfortable, relaxed environment.
