      My son received as a Christmas gift of driving lessons from this school. We called to make sure the instructor was aware that he was a first time driver and that he needed private lessons. My son was picked up with another child in the car, then asked to sit in the drivers seat and drive!!!!!! This child has NEVER driven a car before. Long story short, at the end of the “lesson,” my son was told by the instructor (there is only one instructor) that he was the “worst driver he had ever come across!” My son came home devastated and deflated. He has lost all confidence to take lessons and its been a few months now. I have been trying to get a refund from this school for months now and nothing. I called and was told, “its probably true. I am an honest person. He was probably the worst driver. I dont remember!!!” When I suggested he had never driven before, I was told, “oh! I forgot!” DO NOT send your teenager to this driving school! There are many other good ones in the area.

      Im taking it now and i guess its too late to turn back now but i feel like the instructors yell too much and last time i was behind the wheel Mr.Ali had wanted me to turn and he grasped my hand hard to turn the wheel cuz he was so mad instead of turning the wheel its self. And when i had considered getting a refund ,after he told me he couldnt change the dates, he had changed his mind so it would work out but to me the schedule was all out of wack. Everyones schedule is out of wack and i feel like out of everyone else in the class he is only yelling at me and being really rude because i had asked to change the dates.(like he would take his frustration out on me)And he decided to wait till last minute to inform me that everybody would get their license in the next 2 months. I regret coming here ...

      Classroom dirty, complete dump. The guy giving the classroom lessons can't really speak english & he spends so much time complainimg about his kid. He can't answer questions and doesn't seem to understand the work so he just reads the slides on the small TV in the corner. You have to climb over junk in the hallways to get to the class & the instructor is unhelpful rude and just terribly slow. He just doesn't seem to know what is going on. He can't answer questions. The woman that did the driving part is sweet helpful and on time but the car you drive is dodgy. I wouldn't go here, if I knew what it was like I wouldn't ever have gone here.

      This is an awful place. The classroom is dirty and run-down and ugly looking. The instructor is rude slow and can barely speak english. He just reads the slides outloud or has the class read the slides. He can't answer questions. The girl who did the driving classes was more polite but the car is literally falling apart. The owner Ali, is rude and can barely speak english either. This is such a bad idea. You won't learn anything. You will sit in a dirty room with water damage and dirty carpets & peeling paint so you can say you did the class. They don't mark the work sheets so you won't know if you got any answers wrong before the test. If you fail the test they won't tell you which you got wrong either. They just tell you to read the book again. This is a total waste of money.

      Mr.Ali is one of the nicest and friendliest driving instructors you will meet. He fits your schedule with his schedule which is very flexible for an busy person. Hes the only driving instructor I would recommend.

      Mr. Ali is such a great teacher and is always friendly to everyone. He made the licensing experience a fun, educational, and stress free process. I would highly recommend him to any new drivers.

      Mr. Ali is a great teacher who will try his best to be flexible according to your schedule and not his own. He's nice, and the rides are always so relaxed. The classes helped me become very comfortable with driving quickly; my parents said they saw noticeable improvement afterward! I recommend him 100%. :)

      recently I completed driving instruction with Mr. Ali. I lacked confidence in Drivers Ed class in school and was intimidated by the instructor. Mr. Ali was completely different. He was knowledgeable but had respect for me as a student. He did not intimidate me or berate me. He was very professional and kind instructor. I would recommend him any time..

      I just finished behind the wheel with Mr. Ali. He was a very nice instructor, contrary to what others have said. He was patient, calm, and corrected me kindly. I would 100% recommend Delta Driving School.

      I took behind the wheel with Mr Ali. He was not a bad instructor. He stayed patient and did his best to make sure his students were not stressed out about driving.

      this driver instructor name ali is such a piece of sh&^$ and he thinks he is so funny but in fact he is the most annoying person in the car

      Yeah im not sure who my guy is but yeah, he never really compliments you when you do stuff well. He just berates you when you don't do things his way. And your so focussed on driving his way that you totally lose focus of the real task which is driving. So yeah, it kindof sucks. If you don't drive good once, they threaten to fail you for the rest of the week

      Ali is a great instructor! He tells you what you need to work on and never yells or berates you. He was very accommodating with my schedule and made sure I completed the necessary amount of driving time. I definitely recommend!

      Ali is one of the best instructors out there. No one can say anything bad about him because they know he is the best. There are times when there are drivers in the car that can not drive. Ali tries to help them through it and tells them to practice at home so that they can actually pass their diving test and not waste $250 on the class. You just have to know what your doing before going into this class or you will have trouble. He does not yell at you and he does not stomp on the break every 5 seconds. He is very kind and willing to give you this class without harsh remarks or constant scolding. I have recommend him to everyone I know that has not gotten their licence.

      TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE experience. highly unprofessional, and very, very, rude instructors. my instructor told me on the first day that i was a bad driver, and that i "wouldn't pass the test driving this way." it was my first day and i had already gotten 20 of my hours. my instructor never said another word to me, only to tell me to turn, and blasted the radio the entire ride. he was always late and he dropped me off early. i never learned how to park or ride on a highway, and one time he asked me to stop at his house while he "picked up something" and i was waiting in the car for 15 minutes during my instruction time. another day he made me stop so he could pick up a sandwich. the day i was supposed to take my driving test my instructor was sick. he did not call, and i was told by another instructor. i had booked by session four months in advance due to a very tight summer schedule which was not accomodated, despite the $430 fee.

      The instructor wants the students to master driving in ten days.If ten days pass and his student doesn't drive well, the instructor starts yelling and growing impatient. Very unprofessional.. I had to quit and look for another school to get my driving license.. If you are a dignified person you will not continue with this instuctor...

      DO NOT choose this driving school, especially if you are a nervous driver/beginning student. Yelling does not help people learn to drive! Does not really teach you anything about driving, other than just the experience of driving on the road (no tips to improve driving). If you have a ton of experience going in, it may be bearable but I recommend choosing another driving school for behind-the-wheel.

      Mr. Sanji is an jerk... bag. He didnt teach me anything that I didnt already know, and he tried to touch me uncomfortably! He was always late and absent a few times! Not to mention a few acts of adultary!.

      Johnny I fully agree with you, taking a course with Delta Driving School was a total nightmare. All my friends who had taken him said he was soooo cool and that he was sooo easy I thought I was the only one who had these feelings towards Delta Driving School Thank You all of you here for affirming that I am not crazy and that I was not the only one to have such a horrible experience with Delta Driving School

      Taking a course with Delta Driving School has been the worst experience of my life!!!To meet my instructor for my driving courses I had to go by his schedule meaning that if he was late I had to wait and that if I was late he wouldn't wait for me.After that, I never received my letter from court (I am suspecting him of never sending my papers to DMV because of multiples reasons and incidents that happened during the course). And lied to me saying I had to pay a fee to get my papers sent again because he had a fee to pay too (which is not true, I called DMV).He told me that I had to deal with DMV, that it wasn't his responsibility anymore and that he didn't have anything to do with it. Having no other choice I did.Through the whole process my instructor never made any proof of good will, lying constantly about what DMV what DMV was telling him and what he could do.Unfortunately all this is still not over. I have been waiting for my drivers licence for 7months.If there's one recommendation I can make is DO NOT TO CHOOSE THIS SCHOOL! As I can see the others who had Sanji share the same feeling :)

      OMG!! DO NOT GO HERE, Johnny everything you said was completely true, and you said it modestly. SANJI is the WORST instructor in the world and taking behind the wheel with him was utterably miserable!!, I dreaded going to driving class, and he takes ur your whole day, Then sometimes he wont even show up and claims that he came, The BIGGEST mistake ever if you go to delta and get SANJI!!

      This school is awful!!! Taking class with Sangi was a complete nightmare!!! It is impossible to get what you want. I beleive that as a customer it is normal to get a least a minimum of respect and dignity especially from a driving instructor. It is impossible to fix a date to schedule for driving lessons. He is late often but will never accpet to wait outside of your home for 5min. He threatens not to give the liscence to his students if they dont apply to his rules which are going furthermore than just regular rules. He shall not be forced, or wait for you. He is very demanding and says hes always compremising for us, when we have to put our social life in jeopardy just to get a drivers licence. I feel like this whole "adventure" has been a battle or a struggle to get a drivers licence
