Removing comparison will let you focus on what you need to do and complete it as efficiently as possible to the best of your ability. Here is some practical advice to figure out how [...]

Great driving school! My instructor Mukhtar taught me all that was needed for me to pass my G2. Rubina helped me work through the process of completing the online training and moving immediately forward into my lessons. She also helped book my test at the test centre of my choice, which was not at all easy to do with all the pandemic backlog. I highly recommend any aspiring driver to connect with Ambitious Drivers :)

Mukhtar is the best driving instructor ever! He ALWAYS arrived at my house on time and helped me freshen up my skills to successfully pass my G test! My driver examiner was late at DriveTest and Mukhtar made sure I wasn't nervous and made me calm before my test! Thank you so much! The receptionist is extremely rude however! She "forgot" that I paid her in full and she ended up placing me on hold for over 10 mins. I hung up and called back and she said she "forgot" I was on hold. Another time, I called her before my first first driving lesson and she was rude on the phone and said "if u booked it he'll get there when he gets there". She was rude from the beginning unfortunately! However Mukhtar is amazing!

My driving instructor was Mr. Rafi Masood. He was very patient and kind instructor. He gave helpful criticism and helped me to become a better driver. He is clear with his instructions and takes the time to explain what mistakes I made and how I can correct them. He helped me to pass my G2 test on the first try. Mr. Rafi Masood is a very good driving instructor

I passed my full G test yesterday. Full shout out to my driving instructor Mr. Mukhtar. Effective and efficient teaching way so I got the most during the lesson. Mukhtar is a very experienced instructor. It was really helpful when he spent some time to cover the drive test route before the exact test began.

Booking lessons: To start off, I have to say this process was really quick. The admin took her time and explained how the lesson process works, next thing you know you were assigned an instructor and attending your lessons. The prices are A LOT cheaper than any other driving school. So if you are looking for a school that’s within your budget I would recommend “Ambitious Drivers.” Instructor: The instructor assigned to me was Muhktar. He is one of the best they have. He really takes his time and show you the rights and wrongs on the road as well as give you scenarios to help understand the concept of driving. He helped me gain confidence in parallel parking. Lessons with Muhktar resulted in passing my G2 road test on the first attempt! Overall, the day of my test the admin, aka Rubina personally drove me to my test and back. She made me feel very comfortable and calm. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be there for me. This was an amazing experience I had with a driving school. Thank you Ambitious Drivers. I’ll be coming again for my G. :)

Great experience with Ambitious Drivers Inc. Especially, the owner Rubina, she is very nice and had hired good professional drivers. I just passed my G2 test in just 2 classes and they have low class prices than their competition. All in all, great experience and money valued.

My driving instructor's name is Sumble. She is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! She is such a calm, and relaxing and extremely positive instructor that helped me so much. When I met her I was a very nervous driver but with her tools and techniques, I overcame my fears and now feel so comfortable driving. I had two other instructors that I used from other driving schools that were not able to help me as much as Sumble, especially with passing my G2 test. But when I started to take lessons from Sumble, I passed with flying colours. She is absolutely AMAZING and I truly enjoyed taking lessons from her. I wish I knew her earlier. I can't thank her enough for what she has done for me. Going from a scared and nervous driver to a driver who LOVES to drive now and is confident is a BIG deal especially for me. She is absolutely THE BEST!!!!!!!!! If you are looking for an instructor that is the best and number 1, then you need Sumble!!!!!!! Thank you Sumble so much for all you have done for me!!!!!!!! Words can't tell you just how thankful I am for you!!!!!!!! YOU ARE THE BEST, Sumble!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I highly recommend Sumble - she is truly passionate about what she does and is without a doubt the best driving instructor I’ve encountered. I needed to urgently obtain my G2 license in a very short period of time, and Sumble helped me pass my G2 road test with the examiner remarking that they had no further comments to offer (zero mistakes). Sumble is very patient, a great communicator and provides frequent feedback re: areas to improve. She tailors lessons by focusing on your weak areas, converting them to strengths and boosting your driving confidence. She is very comprehensive, yet highly efficient and ensures you are adequately prepared to do well in your driving test. Even more importantly, she teaches you to continue to be a safe and competent driver once you have your license. Thank you Sumble for your excellence .

My instructor was Rafi Masood. He is an amazing instructor....very calm, patient and caring! He is also very experienced and his teaching is very clear. He gave me a lesson before my G2 and G test in the area where I was being tested. He wanted me to feel comfortable and confident. My experience was just awesome....I passed both G2 and G test!! Thank you Rafi for all your support! I highly recommend him.
