Thanks to Jonathan for being my instructor!
The experience was excellent. I didn't feel like I was
being tested or judged by a teacher, but instead was
driving with a tutor who knew how to remain calm and keep
the atmosphere casual. I never had to worry about getting
my dates mixed because they would always send me an email
beforehand. Easy Street Driving School was great to me and
I appreciate everything they did for me. Special Thanks to
Jonathan for being my instructor.
The instructors are very patient and kind!
Easy street driving school offered me a wonderful way to
practice and improve my driving skills. It was because of
them that I was confident enough to want to continue to
drive, as well as take the driving test. The instructors
are very patient and kind, and know how to help a driver
who is a bit nervous to get over their nerves and focus on
becoming a better driver. I am very grateful for their
instruction; they offered great tips which truly did
improve my driving abilities. Thank you Easy Street for
making me a better and much more confident and comfortable
I highly recommend Easy street driving school!
I highly recommend Easy street driving school. The behind the wheel class
that my son Bryan took according to him was relaxing and informative. The
driving instructors (Jonathan & Ryan) were professional, relax and gave
helpful hints during his driving lesson. Bryan passed his DMV driving test
on the first try, with 4 (minor errors) and DMV examiner wrote "Good job".
Thank you to the office personnel for the support and good customer service

Drivers were easy going but very helpful!
My daughter Cassy loved her experience with Easy Street Driving School! The
drivers were easy going but very helpful in the information they gave her.
She looked forward to each lesson and has been a cautious driver with their
help! Thank you Easy Street!
Mel boosted his confidence from 0% to 100%!
I would also like to recommend Easy Street Driving school. One of my
students had a bad experience with a bad driving tester at the DMV, and had
to re-take the behind the wheel test. My student took the pre-driving
lesson with Mel Duncan, and Mel boosted his confidence from 0% to 100%, and
then he knew exactly what he needed to do to pass the test. He passed with
Really professional, Comprehensive, Relaxed … and Fun!
Andrew had a great experience with Easy Street Driving School. We had used
another drivers ed program for my older child, and the difference was night
and day. The instructors were great - really professional, comprehensive,
relaxed … and fun! I'm happy to say that Andrew passed his driving
test on the first try, with only 2 (very minor) errors and a written
comment from the examiner that said "Nice drive!" We've already recommended
Easy Street Driving School to several friends, and will continue to do so.
I would enthusiastically recommend Easy Street Driving School!
"I would enthusiastically recommend Easy Street Driving School for
beginning drivers. I went from not knowing anything about driving to
passing my driving test at the DMV after just 12 lessons with Mel and
Jonathan, and this was with no car of my own to practice with outside of
those scheduled lessons! Both instructors were extremely professional and
reliable, and they were always a joy to deal with. If you live in the Santa
Barbara area and are interested in driving lessons, they are well worth
your consideration." Best regards.
Thank you a million!
I just want to share the good news with you that I have successfully passed
the behind-the-wheel driving test today. I started learning driving from
Jonathan early this February. After 6 hours driving practices, I learned a
lot from Jonathan and I did more practicing with my wife's help. Then I
joined an refreshing session in March and attended the 'behind-the-wheel'
driving test today. Jonathon is so nice and patient through the two months
journey helping me learning driving and corrected tons of my driving
mistakes and issues. Without his help, I can't pass the 'behind-the-wheel'
driving test today. Thank you a million!
Thank You Easy Street Driving School!!
Thank you Easy Street driving school! I took four lessons with Jonathan and
one lesson with Mel. They both rock! They were very patient in explaining
every question I asked. And I love their humor, which made the lessons more
fun. I learned a LOT of very helpful driving tips from Jonathan. I took the
DMV test in Jonathan's car. Jonathan's jokes made me have fun taking the
test, although I was trembling from the beginning to the end… Now as
I drive by myself, sometimes when come across some situations, things I
learned from the lessons would come up to me. It's helpful forever. Taking
driving lessons is definitely a great way to learn it systematically and
comprehensively. Say thank you to Jonathan and Mel! They are great
...explained/demonstrated as many times as needed to get material down.
I just wanted to recognize Jonathan my instructor. I learned so much from
him in three lessons and he was a great instructor all around. He was very
professional and explained/demonstrated as many times as needed to get
material down. I will recommended Easy Street and Jonathan to anyone I know
that will benefit.
Your company is awesome. Bless you
Hi Renee and Mel,
You two are the best. I am convinced that my son now wants to drive because of Mel's positive attitude. Before he was quite content with his Dad Chofour driving him everywhere. Now he has his license and wants to drive! You guys really worked to accommodate our schedule and I appreciate that also. I am so glad I met you guys while you still had some availability. Your company is awesome. Bless you,
Easy to schedule, incredibly nice instructor, and fantastic teaching methods!
Easy to schedule, incredibly nice instructor, and fantastic teaching methods! We used another company we paid at first and had two lessons and did not have a positive experience and then switched to Easy Street and Mel was fantastic and huge improvement over the other company! Will definitely be using them for our younger daughter.
From the first phone call to the last driving test, you were all a pleasure to work with.
Easy Street was such an amazing experience for my son. His instructor, Mel,
was highly skilled, patient, kind, and friendly. He was extremely courteous
and professional. I've already referred several people to Easy Street... I
can name a few... Jordan S., Nathan L... I am happy to say that AJ did pass
his driving test with flying colors. He was ready and was trained and
prepared by Mel. Thank you Easy Street. From the first phone call to the
last driving test, you were all a pleasure to work with.
After putting off getting my license for 6 years I am happy to finally have gotten it at 22
Your driving school really helped me get my license: I only took one lesson
but that was enough to improve both my confidence behind the wheel and my
driving skills. I was still very nervous every time I got behind the wheel
when I took my lesson but the instructor was understanding and helped me
feel at ease and by the end of the lesson I was a lot more comfortable and
confident when driving. I was also able to pass my driving test with flying
colors and I attribute most of that to having gone through the practice
driving test with the Easy Street Driving School instructor and knowing
what to expect from the test and leaving the lesson with a list of areas I
could improve on as a driver. After putting off getting my license for 6
years I am happy to finally have gotten it at 22, thank you Easy Street
Easy Street was the best!
Easy Street was the best! Nico passed on his first try, and has not stopped
driving since. Easy Street was a great company to work with; so
accommodating with schedule changes, and extremely efficient. The
instructors were all great, and made the whole process so easy!

I could see my daughter's confidence and ability increase with every lesson...
We were very pleased with Easy Street Driving School. I could see my daughter's confidence and ability increase with every lesson and she always came back sharing good tips with me (gotta love those backseat drivers)! I have already recommended your company to a couple of other parents and will continue to do so. She passed the driver's test on her first try!

My instructor was awesome...
I just wanted to say that I had a great experience. My instructor was awesome, very polished and patient and always on time, he was pretty encouraging and positive, which helped a lot because I am pretty insecure. His name is Jonathan Rojas by the way. You guys are awesome, thank you!

Thank you Easy Street for giving my son the confidence of being a safe and sensible driver!
We've had great experience with Easy Street. They were very accommodating since the beginning. Although my son had already taken one lesson with another company Easy Street fit us within their schedule and prorated the payment. My son Theo started with Jonathan and he liked him right way. Jonathan was very encouraging and positive. The last lesson was with a different instructor but just as good and uplifting. Thank you Easy Street for giving my son the confidence of being a safe and sensible driver! We will definitely recommend you to friends!
