Paid $310 expecting a regular class. What I actually paid for was an oversized class (room meant for 20 people but there was 40+), barely any A/C. The teacher was actually very friendly. I only stayed for one class, on the second day I asked for a refund but apparently the only person who knew how to do refunds had left for the day. I had to come back the next day at 9am for a basic business transaction. Very disappointed.
You can tell that this school actually takes the time to teach their students very well and it wont come at a high cost (I found that they cost less than other driving schools). I enjoyed their classes and I learned a lot from them. Many of my friends complain about their driving schools being very impersonal and I have to say this wasn't the case with Alcantra Driving School. I highly recommend this school for people who actually want to get something out of their classes and not for people who will have a "trying to get this requirement out of the way" attitude.
They are amazing. I actually learned a lot in this school. :) Highly recommend it! Mr. Alcantara is very great at teaching! Every day you learn so so much!

I agree with the review below regarding inquiry call. The first call I made, the front desk/secretary who answered the phone throw an attitude and wasn't helpful at all. However, when I called today, just to give it a try again, the person who answered the call was helpful, polite and professional. The price compared to other driving school is way better. I will surely give another review after the class sessions
I just called to inquire about their classes. Such a condescending tone they had. I wonder if their attitude is the same while teaching. I am not doing business with them after such an unfortunate phone experience. You have been warned.
This is a great driving school. I will recommend your school to others. Unlike any other place, this school makes teaching/lessons fun. I actually missed going to class when the two weeks in-classroom instruction was completed. Then Mr.M. was reassuring and patient when it came time to train on the side roads and then the highway! They also give you helpful information/techniques that will help you get your license. Being one of the slightly older drivers that they have taught, I felt I received great training while also getting the respect I would expect. If you live in the Wheaton, MD area and need a driving school, choose this place. Thanks Mr. M! It was also a good price compared to some other schools in our area! I found the office staff to be professional. In regards to the negative comment below about the office policies, when you first sign up, the contract clearly states their policies. They warn you upfront that you will be expected to train for 2 weeks, everyday Monday through Friday. The office staff is not to be blamed if you miss a class or cannot complete your scheduled road day training time! They will work with you and your schedule to help you complete the entire drivers training course as soon as possible. Thank you again, from Caroline B.P.
I loved going here everything was good. The teacher was nice Mr. M and
he taught me very well, they have a lot of experience and he tried to make
the class fun. It was also a good price.
By far the most hectic hassle full driving program I have ever experience. If you miss or come late to a class you have make it up about 3 weeks later, there by wasting your time. And pretty much do the secretary's job with follow ups. Save your time and energy and try another driving school. Please, I wish I did right from the beginning.
