Welcome to Essential Driving School

Essential Driving School has been serving San Francisco, San Mateo and Alameda counties since 1975. Our patient male and female instructors strive to provide our students with the best education and experience with excellent quality and high standards. You will learn to drive with good basic habits and to drive safely and defensively. We will teach you how to be a better driver with best skills, responsibility and good driving attitude in advance.

We are open 7 days a week, from 8 am to 7 pm. We are open on holidays. All lessons are by appointment only. We speak English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.

Whether you need to apply for an instruction permit, to take a behind-the-wheel driving test, to renew your license, to reinstate a suspended driver's license, or just to brush up your driving skills, we can help you. Give us a call today.
