The instructors at Bond Driving School are licensed by the DMV. In order to get a DMV instructor license our instructors are fingerprinted and background checked. The DMV also administers a written and a behind the wheel road test. Instructors are also trained by our own AAA certified driving instructor trainer, as well as taking continuing education classes throughout the year given by the Driving School Association of California.
Private drivers education tutoring is available upon request. Please call us for details.
Driver's Training Driver's Training is given in 2 hr lessons. Our instructors follow the guidelines set by the DMV. We also give the students a checklist, so students and their parents can know what the instructors have covered, and know what the student needs to work on. Minors that need to complete 6 hours of training are given three lessons.

I wanted to work on getting my driver's license as soon as possible in Feb, while most surrounding driving schools told me I had to wait until April, I found bond driving school who said they can take me right away. Here I am with my driver's license at mid march, i couldn't practice at home because I don't have a car. After five 2-hours lessons, so I've only been driven 10 hours in my life, I passed my driver's test. Thank to my instructors who are so brave and willing to risk their lives riding with me:P The desk people was really responsible and kind.

PSA for my fellow folks with disabilities! Bond is THE place to go to learn how to drive with hand controls. First, they offer two vehicles for people with disabilities: one is a red Prius with hand controls and the other is modified van, should you need to drive from your actual chair. And, they have EIGHT different models for controls, so you can find the one that works with your ability level. Second, John is a phenomenal driving instructor. He is very calm and collected. Never gets impatient. Never raises his voice. Is always willing to explain and answer questions. He never made me feel bad about any mistakes I made, no matter how many times I made them. He was never condescending. And he is hilarious! A great person just to converse with when your lesson isn't filled with driving talk. I got my license with 18 hours of instruction and I couldn't be more thankful to Bond for helping me make that happen!

We got a great deal since I have 2 drivers in the house. My daughter did well with her classes and still practicing before her test. I do appreciate the calls when things do happen with their drivers. My son has had an interesting time so far. They moved up his 1st appointment. The second just got changed from 1 day to another. Thankfully the same week. Like I said it's been different with both kid's in their program. I do appreciate the calls regarding when things happen, but maybe make phone calls before the drive. Overall it has been good.
