Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Joined the company back in 2015 and worked at the Flatbush and Dean St. offices, and currently in an online office/remote capacity. Hands down, the premier driving school in Brooklyn. An excellent management/customer service team in place which deals with a challenging clientele effectively and professionally. Ownership and management are both flexible when dealing with employees/contractors. Regular bonuses/incentive pay are provided, as are team building meetings/lunches. The offices are located in convenient locations and provide the latest technological/office amenities for clients and staff.

Stress-free and exciting place to work

I made the choice of joining Drive Rite Academy almost 2 years ago and I am very glad that I did. I work as an office assistant and help around the office in many ways. The staff is very friendly and they are always willing to go above and beyond. The office itself looks very pristine and is a calming work environment. The owners of the company are very hardworking, understanding and professional. Every day that I work I get to learn and experience new things while also not being completely overwhelmed. I currently work at the location in Flatbush which is near Brooklyn College and it is a very diverse area. There are lots of places to go out and eat for lunch, and often the bosses will order pizza or Chinese food for the entire staff. I start my day off at 9 AM and finish at around 5:30 PM. From the time I enter, the day always seems to fly by quickly as I enjoy my time there. Overall it is a stress-free and exciting place to work. If you are currently considering to apply for a job, I definitely recommend applying to this company. They truly care about their staff and will make efforts to make sure you are comfortable and where you want to be.

Working for drive rite academy was a nice experience because it allowed me to use all of my skills, as a driver, coach, and a motivator.

Working for drive rite was a wonderful experience as it allowed me to calm students nerves and for them to focus on their ability to drive their automobile in a safe manner.Also let allow themselves to bring that confidence of driving to the road test, to show what they have learned at drive rite academy.


Allow me to use my customer service, allows me to be patient with drivers who are unsure of themselves, and allows to to teach and lead by example.

Great, productive, and encouraging environment with a team that achieves goals and helps one another.

I have been an instructor with Drive Rite after leaving military service and have been extremely satisfied with the pace and flow of the school. Primarily it is a reliable team of people with integrity and purpose.

One of The Top 10 Driving Schools In NYCVery Flexible, Friendly & Fun Working Environment!

I am Retired & I’m a present instructor at DriveRite & I’ve been working here since 2018. I really like working here because it’s perfect for me. I’m practically my own boss. My days & hours are very flexible & if I need to stay away for what-ever reason or time needed, my job is still here for me! The pay is better then other Driving schools. I get along with the owners, managers, supervisor, staff & all other instructors. We all work like a team & help one another to keep the company running as smooth as possible. We have New cars & 3 locations to work from. I’m proud to be part of the DriveRite Academy team & we all help in making this company grow so we can grow with them & “Reek The Benefits” So before you go to any of the other Driving Schools Give Us A Try, & you’ll see for yourself, you made the right choice!

Great place to work. Ownership is very hands on and will actually listen to feedback to change procedures to make sure we are able to work more efficiently and effectively. Very fair compensation and there are also monthly bonuses based on performance.

Clean cars, busy school, nice working conditions

Being a driving instructor for Drive Rite is a great experience. I have worked for another driving school before and they would give me a bad schedule with many gaps throughout the day. That is never the case at Drive Rite. My schedule is always nice and full so I never waste time doing nothing. I am able to earn decent wages. Management and office staff is supportive.

The office is very clean and modern. I learned how to provide great customer service. Some situations may be challenging but we got through it as a team.
