    I am very pleased with the behind the wheel program I received from Mr. Mohamed. He is really great, patience and have really good way of addressing mistakes while I drove and did not really nag about mistakes and allows you to drive and understand rather than scaring me as new driver. With no second thoughts in mind, I would love to take this opportunity to thank him for his teaching style. I'm now a confident driver and very satisfied with the program!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, students tend to be nervous at first so I begin with my student in a slow speed zone areas to make them comfortable and then gradually take them to higher speed zones. Also, I go over the basics to understand a little bit about the car. For example, how to turn on headlights, high beam, wipers, emergency signal, horn, front and rear defroster and changing gears! 

Commentary Driving: being conscious of what you're doing on the road and extremely observant. It may have been a while since you have been conscious of your driving but I am going to help you narrate the process outloud by saying things like " that truck is getting close try to ease on gas a bit or that blue car is going too fast it will probably pull in front of us try to leave extra space. Clear instructions to make us safe on the road! I will encourage my student to make accurate judgements about what traffic will do and how to respond to it additionally we will discuss road hazards and what to do about each situation we face while driving!
