"I took my road test today for the first time in the middle of a snow storm. Boy was that scary! Snow, rain, all around miserable weather. However, thanks to my great instructor, from Bell Auto School, I was not at all nervous. He taught me how to stay calm under pressure. My parallel park, changing lanes, and 3 point turns were flawless. Needless to say, I passed on my first try. Thanks Bell Auto School. You guys are the best!"
"Driving seemed to have a lot of complicated rules, but my instructor made everything super simple. He took all the anxiety and confusion out of driving and learning the road test. Not only that, he had a good eye for assessing my strengths and weaknesses and always had an effective way to exercise what I needed to work on. I would definitely recommend him as an instructor for anyone who's really nervous about driving or passing the road test or both."
"Bell Auto School has been a staple in the Nassau and Queens community for many years. Generations of families have taken lessons and passed their road tests including my own through private lessons and driver's ed. The tradition continues and I would recommend them to anyone learning to drive. Trust me, leave it to the professionals."

Cancellation Of Driving Lessons:
Lessons are made on a reserved basis. Our drivers are only paid for the time they train. If a student is a "no show", has no permit or cancels a class without calling at least 48 hours before their lesson, our driving instructor is out of work for that time period. If you book a lesson the same day as the appointment, the 24 hour rule still applies. In such cases you forfeit that lesson and that prepaid lesson will be charged. Any further lessons needed to complete your program will require an additional prepaid "STANDARD" price.
If you purchased a package, your refund will be the amount you paid minus (the number of lessons you took times “STANDARD” cost per lesson) minus the “STANDARD” price of any other item in the package that you used. There will also be a fee of 10% of the total original purchase price.
Road Test Cancellation & Refund Policy:
We schedule road tests for many of our students. Students have five (5) days after the road test is scheduled to reschedule. If a student reschedules the road test after the five (5) days, he/she is subject to an additional $25 booking fee. The fee covers services rendered. For refunds and cancellations of road tests, please refer to our refund policy.
Cancellation Of 5 HR Pre-Licensing Class
