Teenager Drivers Education

The course is about 4 weeks long (16 days for 2 hours each day). It is a 32-hour course which is required by the state of Texas. The dates of the classroom do not necessarily include the 14 hours of behind the wheel also required by the state.

The behind-the-wheel (actual driving) is a separate course which is taught by a different set of instructors once the student acquires their permit (normally sometime after day 4 of the class, after passing our test and going to DPS with our certificate). The student will have 6 months from the start date to complete all driving hours.

Adult Driving’s Education

This course is for behind-the-wheel lessons only. Students must have a valid permit at the time of enrollment. A valid permit must also be maintained for the duration of all lessons scheduled. Enrollment is done in person at our office and all appointments scheduled are paid for in advance. We accept payment in the form of credit cards, cash, and money orders only.

Defensive Driving Classes

This is a six-hour Driving For Life Defensive Driving course.

    We’ve known the owner Marc for a long time and so we knew our daughter will be in good hands taking her driving classes here. My daughter was very nervous to start, but the staff always made her feel comfortable and were very patient with her. I highly recommend enrolling your children here.

    I took my road test this morning with Ronnie, and I passed. Great communication. It was fast, and easy. Very smooth. Sarah was very helpful. I went to DPS right after, and got my license. I wish I looked into their school earlier, but it’s better late than never. Thank you Sarah, and Ronnie. You guys are amazing.

    Amazing!! Ronny, taught me how to parallel park and gave me super useful tips on how to improve my weaknesses. He gave me great correction but it never felt degrading and it made me want to improve. I passed my driving test with him with just one lesson(I had several hours practice driving, with my parents but no driving classes) !! On top of that their office was supper clean and the person that took our phone call was so nice and helpful. Highly recommend.

    Very professional. I would recommend definitely. Always helpful. The trainers were always on time. I used to struggle in parallel parking and after joining them, I mastered it. Also, 5 star to Richard for his teaching method.

    Richard is awesome! I took 3 behind the wheel lessons with Richard and he taught me so much! He is amazing at what he does and he made me less nervous behind the wheel. Ronnie is also awesome! I took my drivers test with Ronnie and he was so patient and made me feel very comfortable behind the wheel. I would definitely recommend taking courses at this driving school!

    I recommend Ayala & Associates Driving class because when I called them the front desk was very professional on the phone. Answering all the questions I had regarding pricing for personal driving classes, times and dates. The prices for the class per hour was the cheapest out of 5 different places I called. Both driving portions I had gave clear and easy instructions on what to do. I just needed help with changing lanes and parallel parking and I feel very confident in my abilities now.

    What a wonderful experience! My son was so nervous and the instructors eased his mind. He took the test there which was a lot better than having to wait at the DMV!

    Richard and Ronnie are my favorite people in this school. They teach everything you need to know and they do it well. They made sure I was ready for my road test and I would definitely recommend them over anyone else! Make sure to ask for the people mentioned.
    Thank you Ayala 🙂

    Ayala driving school is going through ownership change but they still manage to PROVIDE a safe but relax environment for the students to learn not only how to drive but how to survive in this traffic environment that is changing and getting more aggressive. I'm sure the school is producing a driver that will be safe and respectful to other drivers and pedestrians on any street and because of that I believe Ayala driving school is a
    BIG LEAGUE and AMAZING school to enroll your children or even yourself at. I truly believe that Ayala driving school will MAKE DRIVING SAFE AGAIN so I PROUDLY give Ayala driving school 5 STARS

    Our son had a fantastic experience at Ayala. We were able to take the stress out of learning to drive by having Ayala as a partner to guide the process. Our son was instructed by teachers who cared and have a level of patience and calm I do no! Highly recommend and encourage others to alleviate the anxiety of parent taught drivers education with Ayala.
