I asked for Anika based on yelp reviews. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She followed up each lesson with an evaluation and suggested exercises to improve driving. She was flexible and worked with my 17 year old's school schedule. I would highly recommend her. BTW, my daughter was very comfortable with Ms. Anika and passed the first driving test she took at the DMV.

A great exciting experience for my daughter...she was very excited and texted me once the 1st instruction was complete and said she feels so much more comfortable. Her instructor was Anika and my daughter says she was cool! Thank You Anika and ARS for a great experience.

I found this ARS driving school on yelp. Anika is awesome. I have a big smile today after I pass my driving from DMV thanks for Anika and the ARS driving school.
