I am an experienced and licensed driver but have always been interested in learning to drive stick. After two hours with Maurice, I can say I'm proficient enough to comfortably get from A to B. He is very knowledgeable, makes you feel completely comfortable, and is very patient. Learning to drive a stick (especially with people honking behind you) can be a daunting task at first, and Maurice really does a great job keeping you calm and focused on the task at hand so you can really learn. Highly recommended 5/5 for Maurice!

I already had my license but wanted to learn stick so I can start racing school. Maurice was quick to respond to me and we were able to schedule an appointment the next week. The whole time, he was understanding and patient even though I had trouble with first gear, and by the third day I was so comfortable driving stick. I recommend All City Stick to everyone, it's great great service for what you're paying and I think he's the only one in socal who will teach manual, which is definitely a necessary skill.

never in my life have i thought i would be able to learn manual driving in two short days. Maurice is the most patient driving instructor and knows exactly what he is doing. The confidence he has in his students is impeccable and you will be lucky to find someone as awesome as him. I recommend this driving course to anyone learning stick or automatic.

Moving from Europe I had to get my American license and that required going through the same process as any beginner. Maurice ( instructor and owner @ all city stick) made it very simple and smooth. I got my license really fast, I've never thought that it would be so easy. Not only he assisted me in my driving practice but he also took care of all the paper work, all I had to do was to show up . Thank you so much again, was a great pleasure meeting and working with you!

I thought, if we have to pay for driving instruction, why not learn to drive a stick in the process?! Both our teenagers learned the basics of driving a stick, which is really important if renting cars in other countries, we've found. Maurice was very calm and patient and encouraging. My kids came home feeling accomplished and excited about learning a challenging skill. Plus, Maurice will do the final lesson in your car, if you want, and go over exactly what is to be expected to pass your driving exam. Both my teens passes the first time and with examiners who were known for being very strict! If you want your kids to have a very positive, educational experience AND easily get their license, sign them up at All City Stick with Maurice!

Maurice taught both of our teenagers to drive. He was professional, thorough, punctual, and everyone felt very comfortable having him as a driving instructor. He prepared them for the entire process, and both of my kids said that when it was time for them to take the behind the wheel test at the DMV, they felt comfortable, because Maurice prepared them well. Both kids even received compliments on their driving from the DMV testers! I would recommend All City Stick Driving School to everyone!

I had been looking at driving schools with stick shift training which is quite difficult to find nowadays. The ones in my local area either don't offer manuals or I find very poor reviews on the web. Then I found All city Stick Driving School which has almost all five stars reviews in all review sites and specializes in teaching manual, it even sells a very informational DVD on how to drive manual. Although it is far from where I live I find it worthy to make the trip. Maurice is really the miracle instructor who can make me feel confident driving a manual on streets almost immediately. He also explained well on what to expect on the driving exam. I went through the exam with confidence and aced it. I am very glad I went with all city stick driving school. I recommend it to anyone in search of a driving school.

I thought i'd never be able to get my liscense, but then i called All City Stick Driving School, and all that changed. Asmat, the automatic car instructor, was very patient and professional and an outstanding instructor. He explained things clearly and in great detail and helped me feel comfortable on the road. Thanks to him, I was able to pass the driving test on the first try. I would recomend All City Stick Driving to any one interested in taking driving lessons.
