I am a non US citizen with a foreign driving license, and I took my road test with Salt Lake International Driving. The whole experience has been amazing!!! Daud is a great professional, with a lot of experience but at the same time very kind and patient. He explained all the road test procedures and answered all my doubts before the test, and helped me to feel calmer during the test. I learned about the importance of always checking blind spots while driving, and the helpfulness of defensive driving. Overall an excelent experience! I really recommend this driving school to all! Also, to drivers with an international driving license like me.

The instructor was very patient, kind, and professional. Before hand he explained everything he was testing me on , very thorough. I told him areas I wasn’t good in and he explained them to me. While driving he made me relax and loosen up. Would totally recommend to anyone who needs to get their test done! I passed!

I had a great learning experience with Daud. He helped me to think more and use more judgments to drive better. Daud also provided me a practice test before my road test, which helped me to know my weaknesses and better prepare for the exam.
