Review №1

Mr. Sotannde was such a great driving instructor. He teaches very effective techniques when it comes down to driving and passing the road test. His method for learning parallel parking made it very easy to learn. He’s very nice and patient. I was able to pass with just 5 lessons. Definitely recommend!

Review №2

I am a college student and wanted my license before I went back to school. My instructor got me in quick and with five lessons I passed my road test. Thank you!!! Would totally recommend, he is very patient and kind!

Review №3

I recommend this driving school if you have failed in the past and need to learn how to be a better driver in a short period of time. I was taught how to parallel park by multiple other people and never fully learned until Mr. Sotannde taught me. I was able to parallel park perfectly on the test and I was able to pass as a result. His tips helped me avoid common mistakes on the exam. If you follow his teachings, you will definitely pass on first try with this company.

Leadway Driving School is very goal-oriented in finding the best method to teach a new driver. The instructor is both very patient and flexible when it comes to working around busy schedules. Very nice experience!

Review №5

I was always driving but I didnt know a few things that would make me fail the Drivers test. The instructor taught me a lot and when I took my test I passed on the first try. Very good overall!

Review №6

As someone with little to no experience prior to starting my lessons, I was able to pass my road test on my first try. My instructor was patient as well as pleasant which made it even easier to gain confidence as a new driver. I highly recommend Leadway.

Review №7

The instructor is very patient and kind. As a new mom he was able to work around my schedule, and my parallel parking has been perfected. If it wasn’t for his great tips and advice, I wouldn’t have passed my road test. Thank you again!

Review №8

The school is great and the instructors were patient and very knowledgeable! Instructor Sebin made sure I passed. We practiced for months and on my first attempt I passed my road test. I highly recommend!

Review №9

As the parent of a teenager who is a first time driver, I was hesitant. seeing my child progress with each class was great! The instructor is patient, experienced, consistent and teaches the key fundamentals of driving.I recommend Leadway School for students that want to pass the road test on the first try and become safe and responsible drivers.

Review №10

Very good driving school. i recommend this driving school to any new drivers. i passed my road test the very first time, the teacher is very patient

Review №11

I passed my road test today!Mr. S. was quite patient with me. Because of the pandemic, my 5-hour class was hosted by him online & I acted fast & took it. Mr. S. had to also work with me as I navigated personal obstacles which forced me to delay taking my road test when it was originally scheduled. Having failed the road test twice in 1994 (seriously) with another instructor, an instructor with patience & good ratings was vital to me, given the 27-year gap between attempts to pass the road test (yes, I’m 45 years old!). Thanks, Mr. S.!

Review №12

The instructor is amazing! Super patient and knowledgeable. Accommodated to my schedule. Gave me tips and tricks to remember for parallel parking and the 3 point turn. Showed me exactly what they’re looking for on the road test. I purchased the 5 lesson package and it was worth every penny. Passed my road test on the 1st try with no problems.

Review №13

Really great for anyone who needs to brush up, or needs tips on any skills in preparation for the driver’s test! The method for the parallel parking was very helpful and the instructor is very patient.

Hard to contact. Barely responds to text or phone calls. Lessons arent bad but the communication is.

Review №22

I ended up taking 8 lessons with this school and overall had a wonderful experience! Instructor was so kind, so patient and gave extremely helpful tips.

I found leadway driving school through my google searches when I moved to Elmont I needed a driving school. I took lessons before but I was never as consistent with the lessons. I must say I am glad I decided to go with this school because the instructor is very easy going, he works with you and your schedule; he has the patience to see and make sure all his students pass their road test. I took my road test a second time and I passed. I would recommend this school to anyone who is new to driving or looking for a new driving school.

Leadway driving school is the best school I have attended so far.

Review №29

Highly recommend! If you are in the Long Island area this is the driving school to go to. I’ve had my license for 4 years and never got comfortable on the road because I didn’t own a car. Moving to Long Island, I got a car and decided to take driving classes with Leadway to get over the fear of being on the road. After 5 sessions, I felt so much more confident and comfortable. I never thought I’d be driving alone! Thank you so much Leadway for helping me gain my confidence and teaching me the safe way to drive!

Review №30

Completely unorganized. Says they will return calls, No call returned . Given a 2nd chance Call them back to set up appointment, driver is a NO SHOW. What kind of place is this? Thank goodness I didnt pay in advance.And better I didnt allow my cild to be instructed by this company. Red Flag!!

Review №31

The instructor was very patient with me and was very good at communicating. He would make you feel very comfortable while driving even when you make a mistake he doesn’t judge or put too much pressure on you.

Mr. Sebili is an amazing driving instructor. He’s so patient but still makes sure we perfect everything we need for the test. I passed my road test on the first try with only 6 lessons. Everyone in the Elmont/Valley Stream/Cambria Heights area should go to Leadway Driving School !

Review №46

My experience with this driving school is such an amazing one. From being a nervous driver and never had any driving experience to a confident driver within short period.

I still cannot believe it !!!. thanks to Leadway driving school. My instructor is very patient and very detail.

Passed on my FIRST TRY! Great instructor! He was very patient, informative and kind. I recommend, recommend, RECCOMEND this place.

Mr Sebil is a good instructor, felt very comfortable during lessons and his prices are quite reasonable. Would recommend him.

Review №54

Very bad school, they didn’t have a office and stole your money. I will suggest to try another driving because they didn’t receive me in office even they cannot give you a stable schedule alway a schedule on call. Not good. What funny about that, they texted and call on my phone and They threaten to remove my review WOW and never even disrespectful and rude please dont text me or call me leave me alone

Review №55

I would highly recommend enrolling in Leadway Driving School with Mr.Sebili because after attending his 5 hour class and taking a few one to one driving lesson with him, I passed my road test on the first try! He was extremely patient and knew all the skills and strategies I needed learn in order to feel prepared and comfortable driving. 10/10 would recommend.

Review №56

Good and patient instructor that make sure you learn all you need to. I passed on my first road test

Review №57

The instructor really knows what he is talking about and does his best to show you what your doing wrong in a respectfull way. Although he can be about 10-15 minutes late for the lessons.

Review №58

The best place to learn to drive by experienced and patient instructor. They make you feel confident. Got my license in my first test. If you are searching for a place where you can learn to drive don not search anymore just contact them.

Review №59

The experience was great. With each lessons I improved drastically. The instructor usually go through every detail carefully ensuring that you have the right knowledge to get on the road safely.

Review №60

Mr. Sebil (the owner and principal driving instructor) is heaven sent! I had tried taking the driving test THREE times after practicing with another driving school in the area, but failed every time. My sister suggested making a switch and it was exactly what I needed! His patience, calming presence, methods that were logical and easily adaptable, up to date instruction materials, late model car, etc., all made for the best preparation I have ever had and I am now the proud holder of a NYS drivers license! If you have tried other schools with no success or you are a newbie who wants to get the knowledge down right the first time - LEADWAY IS THE ONLY WAY!

Review №61

Sebil (the instructor) was very patient, informative, accommodating to my schedule,and ensured that I mastered all the rules of the road. I am proud to say that with the help of Leadway Driving School, I passed my road test on the first go. I strongly recommend them to absolutely anyone looking for driving classes.

Review №76

I took my test a couple weeks ago and passed on my first try!! I had a great experience and would definitely recommend Leadway driving school .

Review №77

Ok! Where do I start? At 33 yrs old I decided that I needed my license because of work and school. I tried having my husband teach me but it always left me feeling anxious and confused. So I signed up with a driving school, their customer service was horrible, I almost gave up after not really finding any good driving school until I came across Leadway Driving School. I reached out to them and spoke to Mr. Sebil, from the first conversation I had with him, I could tell this is where I want to get my driving lessons. His calm and patient nature was everything I was not getting from others whom I turned to for driving Assistance. Not only that, he has great communication and he was willing to accommodate me when I couldn’t do a lesson; he never fussed nor made it a big deal. Another thing that made my experience a great one, was is favorite line, “you’re the best in the west”. He would say that when I would complete the task flawlessly. I appreciated that so much, (though I never tell him), but it greatly boosted my confidence and made me feel like I was making progress, and it was because of him 5 lessons later on the first attempt, I passed the road test. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.Please note: After my first driving lesson he told me that my skills were at a 5. None-the-less, he took me to where I needed to be to PASS my test and that’s just phenomenal🌟

Review №78

This place is great very accommodating of your schedule, professional and helped me pass my road test on the first try. Highly recommend!!!

Review №79

Excellent Driving School. The instructor is simply awesome and professional. My wife tried many other driving schools in Queens and kept on failing on the road test (about 7 times) with Leadway Driving School she passed on the first attempt. I highly recommend any finding difficulty with passing the road test give Leadway Driving School a try. You will pass.

Review №81

Mr. Sebil was a very patient and calm teacher. He exhibited great poise and skill when teaching me how to drive and prepare for the test. He prepared me so well for the test that I wasnt nervous when I took the exam. I have no doubt that he can teach anyone to drive in a short amount of time. Hes amazing and everyone should try to learn from him.

I took my first 2 road test with another driving school and failed even after taking 10 + lessons. I took the test with Leadway and passed after only 5 lessons.
