Anton was a great instructor. He was really patient and knowledgeable and really took the time to teach us what was going on and the why it was happening. Would definitely come back for a more advanced lesson and for more practice.

Anton is an amazing teacher, and a fun guy to learn driving from! I never drove stick before and after a 2 hour lesson felt comfortable in the neighborhood city streets. Patient and diligent instructions. Highly recommend!

I can’t imagine a better way to learn this skill or a better person to teach it to you. My friend and I were quite nervous because it can feel very intimidating at first, but Anton is so patient and such a master you don’t need to worry about your own ability or lack there of. The class is structured perfectly and his knowledge about cars and how everything works mechanically is beyond impressive. He provides an explanation for everything he teaches you so you can understand the bigger picture of what’s happening inside the car. Taking this course gave me an appreciation of cars and driving that you just don’t get from driving an automatic. Being able to travel abroad and not be beholden to renting the one automatic car they have that’s 3 times the price of the manuals is truly a gift 🙏

I highly recommend, instructions were very clear and I gained a better understanding as to not just how to drive a manual but a better understanding as to why and how a manual car works. It helps not just to know what to do but why you do it in the first place. I definitely feel more confident and comfortable in driving a manual car after my lesson.

I’d had one previous lesson with another instructor (different company) and it couldn’t hold a candle to my experience today. Anton was wonderful!! He patiently explained not only the “what” but the “why” which puts all the pieces together. I had a blast and immediately booked another lesson. I learned all the basics and am very comfortable but practice is progress and I want to have a strong command of the process. Highly recommend DriveStickShift.Today!!!

I am so glad I found Drive Stick Shift, and highly recommend it to anyone interested, even if you don't own a car. The experience was everything I was looking for (and more). This is 100% because of Anton's patient manner, strong methodology, and considered approach. I plan to schedule sessions for family so they can also learn the right way. I walked away far more confident about my ability to drive a stick shift car. I particularly appreciated the focus on the theory and engineering behind manual transmission. Anton got me excited about driving in a way I haven't felt since I got my drivers licenses at 16. I now realize how much of the driving experience I was missing without having that connection to the car that stick shift creates. Highly, highly recommend.
