    I have always been fearful of driving, especially merging onto the highways. I took lessons at Defensive Driving with Mr. Issac Kim. He was very patient with me and gave me time to learn and improve on my mistakes. He is an amazing teacher and helped overcome my fear of driving and made sure I was comfortable enough to get onto the highway. He gave me enough practice with the mock tests that I knew what I would be tested for during the driving test. I am grateful that I found Defensive Driving and Issac helped me learn. If possible would give them more stars. Can't recommend Issac enough!! 🙂

    I had a great experience with Sir Kim Issac. He is a great instructor. I was very tensed and hesitant to drive on road. Sir Kim Issac taught me proper ways to drive and boosted my confidence too. Thank you sir for all your help.

    Mr. Kim was an amazing teacher and he really helped me (and my parents) get over my fears about driving. The classes were enjoyable and I learned a lot from drives in particular. Highly recommended!
