I passed, Yay! Thank you so much Hector for your time , patience and well explanation during my driving classes. I felt confident driving around while I was learning. I took all the information and tips you provided and during my own personal time I kept reviewing what you taught me. Thank you Yolanda for responding to my questions in a timely manner and assisting with all the paperwork and school reminders. Lastly, thank you Brandi for your guidance and doing a quick review before my road test. It feels amazing to know I passed. I will continue to follow all your tips to keep myself safe and everyone on the road. ❤️

I’m not a native English speaker. This morning I came to Target Driving School and a friendly gentleman told me EVERY SINGLE POINT that I should pay attention to. Then Brandi gave me the test. She was kind and super patient, and I passed the test on my first try.This is an excellent experience, and I’ll recommend the driving school to my friends.
Had such an amazing experience with Target Driving School. Elias was my instructor. He taught me to drive with confidence just within 3 classes. He was such an amazing teacher. He makes you feel relaxed and comfortable during the class and he is so patient when he explains stuff , even if we ask again. Yolanda helped me schedule all the classes and accommodated all my requests in case i needed to reschedule a class. Brandi was the instructor during the test and she gave clear instructions as to what to do and not do during the test. Overall, thank you Elias and Target Driving School. I passed my driving test because of you guys. Highly recommend this place. Elias is such a great instructor.

Had the pleasure of working with Yolanda, Hector, and Brandi during the training process. They are very down to earth, they’re clear about instructions and do all they can to answer your questions and ensure you’re comfortable at all times. They even use multiple teaching strategies for us visual learners. The structure of the program is well put together so that any and everybody can be successful. Can’t say enough kind words about this place!!

Highly recommend TDS. Brandy from Target Driving School has been very patient while teaching me how to drive. For many years, I did not have the confidence to drive a car on my own. Brandy taught me amazing and neat little tricks to ensure I don’t get overly anxious and panic while driving. This really, really helped. And now after few months of driving everyday, I still remember my teacher Brandy everyday and am very grateful for the kind and patient words she had to make me feel confident enough to drive a vehicle on my own and become independent in many ways.

It's an excellent place to learn driving. They also provide free pickups and dropoffs which is really great. Hector was my trainer and Brandy was my examiner. Hector is an amazing trainer and he not only trains you to pass the test but also prepares you to drive confidently on the road. He teaches all the good practices. Brandy is an excellent examiner. She gives feedback after the test that you can take forward to drive confidently. Overall, I would definitely give a 5 star rating.

I took my road test training and road test with Target driving school and it was a great experience. Yolanda was very good with coordinating my classes and sending me reminders ahead of every class. I took my classes with Hector, who was very patient and an excellent instructor. I received feedback after every class and this helped me clear my road test in the first attempt. Finally took the test with George, who helped me stay calm and confident during the test and provided his valuable feedback after. I highly recommend Target for training and/or road test.Note: They also provide pick up and drop off from your residence which is great!

It's been a pleasure taking my driving classes at Target Driving School and my Instructor Elias is so professional, polite and very supportive. He made me feel extremely comfortable behind the wheel and in 4 classes I went from having no real driving experience to feeling confident enough to immediately take the road test and I passed the test!I really liked that, they have a pick & drop at home facility for extra dollars. The classes are done in back to back 4 days.My Examiner Brandi was really kind, and gave me clear instructions before taking the test. Yolanda helped me schedule my classes and all the staff are very welcoming and supportive.I definitely recommend Target Driving School for anyone that’s getting their license and to learn safe driving and they are amazing and worth going to.

Your initial contact here at Target Driving School is with Yolanda. She is so pleasant , respectful and polite Because of Yolanda’s accommodating and kind attitude , you instantly know you’ve found the very best driving school and the one with whom you want to commit to either learning or refreshing your driving skills.Hector & Brandi are absolutely the BEST instructors. If you need a refresher course, after not driving for a period of time, call TargetDriving School and do not even think about looking elsewhere!These instructors both earned an A+, and getting this type of recommendation from me is a rarity. They’re spot on and the confidence and skills you’ll gain will surpass your expectations.In fact, you’ll be ready to take a long road trip, knowing you’re really ready to hit the road in this way!Happy & safe driving from this time on…

I had a splendid experience at Target Driving School. They did a great job helping me build good driving habits. Hector is a great instructor who explains things in a way that is easy for me to comprehend. He also encouraged me to be patient with myself and have faith in myself. I had never touched the steering wheel before, but after five lessons, I passed my driving test on the first try. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a trustworthy driving school in Austin.Scheduling with them can be a little bit tricky. Sometimes they can be quite busy with the road tests and walking in students. You may need to call in again before they answer your calls. Also, they do open on Saturday from 10am to 3pm. Not sure why Google Maps says otherwise.

I am so beyond satisfied with my experience at the school!! First of all, Yolanda was so helpful with the scheduling and sent reminders the day before. I had Brandi for both my refresh class and the driving test, and cannot say better things about her! I went in very nervous, but she was so kind and explained everything you need to know to drive safely and responsibly. She gave me the confidence I needed to take the driving test and gave me feedback once the test was over (as well as throughout the class). Definitely going back to take highway driving lessons with them. Cannot recommend them enough!

My instructor Hector was patient, knowledgeable, and supportive. He taught me the skills and techniques I needed to be a safe driver. He made me believe in myself. Yolanda, the point of contact, was very helpful and organized. She scheduled my classes according to my availability and work schedule. She sent me reminders and answered all my questions. Brandi, who took my driving test, was professional and gave me clear instructions and feedback. I didn't experience panic during the test while Brandi watched me drive. Thank you, Target driving school, for helping me achieve my driving goal!

I had a nice experience with my road test preparation and test with Target Driving School. Yolanda was very kind and patiently helped in coordinating the schedule for the classes. Hector was my instructor for the first class and explained the basics, rules and concepts very nicely. Brandi was my instructor for the remaining classes and she patiently explained me the concept of driving safely for the safety of myself and others. During the classes, she conveyed the areas to improve and helped me dispel my nervousness by teaching me the concept of "Target" and worked on my driving. I liked the way how they make you comfortable, listen to you and give confidence at each and every step. Their lessons helped me to clear my exam in the first attempt. I will recommend Target Driving School for the road test preparation.

Just had my first driving lesson with Leanne at Target Driving School and I've got to say, it was awesome. Leanne is such an amazing instructor – she’s super calm and explains things in a way that just clicks. I couldn't believe how comfortable I felt behind the wheel; she really boosted my confidence. The coolest part? I actually drove myself back home after the lesson! Big shoutout to Leanne at Target Driving School – she's doing an amazing job and making driving lessons something to look forward to.

Leanne was a very patient, friendly and knowledgeable instructor. She took time in explaining the laws, clarified each and every doubts and gave plenty of advice on how to drive safe in the road following the rules. Elle is another instructor who gave lot of tips on how to avoid mistakes. My sincere thanks to both of them. Brandi who evaluated me shared the areas where I did well and especially on the areas where I made mistakes. It helped me a lot and reminded to be mindful in the road to drive safe. Thanks Brandi. I highly appreciate Target driving school for everyone who are new to driving.

I highly recommend Target Driving school. They are very structured with their training and I was feeling confident behind the wheel within two classes. My instructor was Brandi and she was very warm , very patient and informative. I had tried learning from another instructor in the past and I could see how different and professional Target Driving School is. 10/10 would recommend them to anyone.

100% would recommend. From the staff to the instructors. I took lessons with Brandi and she was very patient and reassuring during each of our scheduled classes. Working with her not only enabled me to pass my driving test first attempt, she gave me the confidence I needed to drive on my own. Thank you very much, Brandi and Target Driving School!

I took driving class from TDS and was able to get through in single attempt.I booked my class with the help from Yolanda.She is very understandable person - had a thorough discussion about my office timings and available classes timings -- and got one for post lunch time.Hector was my instructor who always maintains cool and calm and possess a very down-to-earth attitude and answers all our questions ( even repeated questions ). He really understands that we may forget few things and explains it again without any if and but.Brandi was my examiner who provides crystal clear instructions and expectations. Post examination, she also explains about mistakes ( if any ) and how to avoid it.Would definitely recommend.
