All my friends have told me that their driving instructors make them drive around doing errands such as going to 7-11 or picking up dry cleaning. This is not the case with Olson’s Driving School. I promise you that Mr. Randolph gives you his full attention and  will provide you with the tools to pass your driving test. I took my test in Los Gatos which can be difficult due to its traffic and pedestrians, but Mr. Randolph really knew the area and helped me to get my license on the 1st try this past Friday with only 2 errors. He provides a lot of helpful tips and certainly helped me dispel my fear of driving. I even learned to parallel park and I’m really comfortable with driving on the freeway! This driving school is worth the money and don’t forget to call way in advance! (:

Thanks a lot to Mr Randolph. He is excellent trainer and very patient for a panic driver like me. He guided me through every situation that might happen while driving.He customized the session based on my requirements and weaknesses.
It was worth waiting getting their appointment.Appreciate Andrea throughout the process.I recommend them 100%.

I really recommend this driving school !! I’ve been to 2 other driving schools before choosing olson’s silicon valley driving school and found this THE BEST ! My instructor was Mr. Randolph.The instructors from the other driving schools only taught me the normal routes the dmv examiners usually take for the test,Randolph on the other hand took me to areas where there was traffic to practice (including freeway) which helped me not only to pass the dmv test in the first chance but also to drive safely after getting the license.His teaching technique has made me enjoy driving and also gain confidence in myself.

AMAZING!!! Friendly, professional, skilled. When my 16 year old needed to have behind the wheel lessons I had originally started looking for the cheapest (which they are not). However… I came to realize that my daughter would be learning a skill that I should not be going the cheap route on. She needed to learn from the best of the best, which I found them to be. Andrea, who sets up all of the appointments is very sweet and was super understanding and had no problem working around my daughter’s sports and social schedule. I paid for each lesson on the day of, never had any issues. Mr. Olson himself was my daughter’s driving instructor and I am sure she may have scared the life out of him a few times, but she said he always remained calm and explained everything to her in detail and made sure she understood what he was talking about. We scheduled the last driving lesson 3 days prior to her DMV test so that they could do a mock test (they actually did 3) in the Santa Teresa DMV area. When they were done, he told me exactly what she needed to improve on and how I could help teach her – and 3 days later my daughter was the proud new holder of a CA driver’s license!! This school was absolutely amazing, everything about it. They may seem a little pricey compared to the other schools out there, but after reading the other reviews and Olson’s reviews – I knew my daughter’s life was more important than saving a few dollars. I would highly recommend them to my family and friends when their children are ready to have some behind the wheel lessons.

I contacted them and left them a message and they call me back soon after that.
I needed a class for behind the wheel exam since I am new to the states I needed someone to tell me the rules. My session with the Mr. (I don’t remember his name) was amazing he gave me so much confidence which I really needed. He was so patient and told me what I needed to know.
In that session I gave them a check which later they called and let me know that I forgot to sign it, the next day I send them the check with post but I don’t know why I received the check after 3 days :(
I was so embarrassed that i drove there and gave them the check myself. but the whole time they were so so respectful which I appreciate it very much.

I totally recommend them they are experienced and respectful people.

By the way I passed my exam after that session :)

This school really is as good as it gets. I was contacted by phone the day after I called to inquire about lessons, and I scheduled 6 sessions right away. I requested Randolph based on his raving reviews, and he really is an awesome instructor.

This school is different from other driving schools because their sessions are very comprehensive. They cover freeway, downtown, parking, hills, and neighborhoods, as well as practice driving tests. The instructor will personalize your lessons after he/she sees where your weak spots are and will challenge you to improve those skills so that by the time you’re done with your sessions you’ll not only be ready to pass the driving test, but also drive safely every day. The price per lesson is worth it for the high quality, personalized, and comprehensive instruction that you’ll receive. I passed my test the first time with only 5 errors! :) Thank you, OSVDS and Randolph!

During the Christmas Holiday between December 20 and December 26 we experienced problems with our office phone number provided by AT&T. We apologize for and problems this caused you, and the issue has now been resolved.

My 16 year old son just passed his driving test on the first try after having Mr. Randolph as his driving instructor.  He had never been behind the wheel before his first lesson, but he was able to practice with us (without scaring his parents too much!) after those first two hours with Mr. Randolph.  I also like that they spread out the lessons to give him practice time in between.  That allowed Mr. Randolph to work on more advanced things each lesson.  I also like that they try to schedule the last lesson within a week or so of your driving test appointment.  Mr. Randolph took my son through a mock test, starting at the local DMV, so he wasn’t surprised during the test.  My son agrees that we would recommend Mr. Randolph to others. ~ Clarie on Yelp

As a mother of twin boys, I was nervous enough about having them start the driving process.  Olson’s Silicon Valley Driving School took away all of that nervousness the minute my children were picked up for their first lesson.  Randolph immediately put us all at ease and made the lessons educational and fun for my boys.  They always came back from their session with stories of where they went and what they learned.  I couldn’t believe they went on the freeway the first day but they did and they felt very confident having Randolph by their side while doing it.  The boys’ last lesson was a practice DMV test which turned out to be the exact route each boy was tested on!  One son passed missing only one on his test and less than 24 hours later, the other son passed missing only two!

I have recommended this driving school to 4 or 5 of my sons’ friends (who have all signed up) and will continue to do so as long as there are teens who need to learn how to drive!! ~ Cathy on Yelp

Thank you OSVDS for teaching my boys how to drive; now will you pay for their insurance?!  :)

This driving school worked perfectly for my needs.
Everything about the lessons went perfectly.
Although they are not the cheapest option available, their service makes a few extra dollars completely worth it.
Of all my friends, I’m the only person I know (other than people that used this same school) that actually enjoyed their lessons and felt like the instructor was trying to help. Many of their teachers would make them drive to the supermarket to pick up groceries or other chores rather than driving on streets that would help them become better drivers. Randolph, however, clearly focuses on teaching in the best way to maximize practice in the short time given during the lessons. I always felt comfortable driving with him in the car, even when he took me on some slightly challenging roads during the first lesson.

All of the logistics, such as setting up the lessons, all went smoothly and he always arrived perfectly on time. I would definitely recommend this service (and already have to my friends interested in taking driving lessons). Make sure the schedule well in advance of the lessons, as he appears to be extremely popular! ~ Marcus on Yelp
