I can put you onto the person who taught my daughter. Which part of Bangalore are you located?

I learnt driving in Maruthi Bimal driving school located near Seetha circle, Bengaluru. This school has no lady instructors, however, the male staff are professional especially Mr Shivashankar.

I have to admit that I spent most time alone on simulator, however, I was fine with that. The theory classes were held over the weekends and ranged from basic introduction to the car to mechanics of the gears and engine. Good emphasis was placed on safety, road rage, common mistakes, traffic rules, sections for fine and on avoiding accident's.

The practical class was well structured and ended with change of tyres (that was tiring). They gradually progressed in the classes from making driving in a calm straight road, making simple turns, driving in less traffic and then moving to bumper to bumper traffic. Practicals included parallel and perpendicular parking.

I was getting about 10 minutes less in every practical class, they promised me 60 minutes. I reported that and they gave me an extra class at no additional cost to compensate for this. I took 5 extra class once I finished the program to increase my confidence.

The cons were:

The don't pick up from our office or home, we need to go there. Same for dropping as well.

It's expensive, but I felt it was worth it.

I came across 3 instructors during my training, so some methods do vary.

Restarting an old thread on driving school options. My wife is keen to learn driving and if all goes well, she would like to own her own car starting next year around Feb.

Quick questions though:

1. Are there any driving schools that teach on automatics in Bangalore? She plans to get an automatic obviously.
2. Is Maruti driving worth the money?
3. She has no experience in driving anything, not even a cycle yet, so I am worried about the build up of traffic sense. How do we tackle that?
4. I stay near bommanhalli in bangalore, any good school suggestions?

Please do advise.

Pinging this thread for advice on good driving schools.

A friend of mine wants to learn driving in Bangalore (near Bellandur). He's already got a license but doesn't know how to drive. The requirements are exactly the same as in above post.

Any suggestions are welcome.
