Emerald City Driving School is a fantastic place to learn how to drive! Especially if you have no prior experience to driving. 
My instructor, Karl, was very patient and took the time to explain any and all questions that I had and also demonstrated how to improve the driving maneuvers I had trouble on. I would definitely recommend anyone to this school as the lessons are great and price is affordable.  Trung N   9/16

I have chosen this driving school based on the yelp reviews and thanks to whoever took time to write reviews so people like me can benefit from it. Steve was my instructor and examiner. I took couple of classes and passed the driving exam. He is an amazing instructor who is very patient and kind. He starts with basic things like turning on the car and explains each and every point to make a person a good driver. Am sure everyone will love his useful and safe driving tips as me. He understands that everyone makes mistakes and correct them politely.  His classes are more of practical and real life driving techniques rather than theory. Overall I highly recommend "Emerald City Driving School" and instructor "Steve Wong".  Selvi Y    5/16

I would highly recommend Emerald City Driving School. Not only is Steve a patient and knowledgeable instructor, the prices are very reasonable and the adult one on one lessons are flexible and able to be scheduled around your work schedule. Overall a great deal! 
I had been wanting to get my driver's license ever since I was a teenager but just never got around to it. Recently I decided to commit myself to finally being able to drive but like other working adults I didn't have much time to be able to attend driving instruction classes multiple days a week for a few hours. Luckily I heard about Emerald City Driving School! I was able to do one 90 minute driving lesson per week on the days that I wasn't working. Steve also picked me up for all of our lessons as part of the package, now that's what I call good service!
After four 90 minute lessons I scheduled my driving and written test, and I passed both! Steve will be very honest with you about whether you should take additional lessons, and he doesn't recommend getting more lessons than you need. I would highly recommend anybody who wants to learn how to drive to take lessons with Steve, especially adults who are short on time but really want to learn how to drive. Emerald City Driving School will be a convenient and affordable place for you to learn how to be a safe driver. The best deal around! Thanks Steve!  Steven F   5/16

- I was really happy to learn driving with Steve. This was my first time ever on the road and he helped build my confidence behind the wheels and also taught me all the important concepts needed to be safe on the road.

​-Before taking lessons with Steve, driving looked overwhelmingly complicated and getting a license seemed a huge hurdle to me. I'm so grateful that I found information about Emerald City Driving School and contacted Steve. I was able to schedule lessons very soon, and eventually got my license pretty soon too. He charges very reasonably, and he doesn't suggest taking more lessons if not needed. His teaching is very sophisticated, and he is incredibly encouraging, warm-hearted, and nice. I enjoyed the lessons although it was summer and hot on the road. Within a short period of time I got so much more confident about driving that I never imagined. I highly recommend learning with Steve!   Jiawen H 7/15

-  I hadn't driven in more than 10 years and needed to get my license back. Steve Wong was straight forward and patient. as well as very knowledgeable about driving safety in general and the driver's license test which he administers. I had a one hour lesson and then the test. and he reviewed my weak spots many times with me to make sure i knew what i was doing and knew what to expect on the test. Also, he's just a nice person who radiates positive energy and calmness--exactly who you want to riding shotgun while you take your test.   Zoe K 7/2014

-  I recently got my license after training from Steve Wong the Chinese driving master of the Emerald City Driving school. With his careful instruction i was able to master all of his ancient driving techniques like his "all the way" technique for parallel parking. I highly recommend everyone reading this, that is wanting to learn to drive to drop what they are doing and run out right now to join his illustrious driving school. Then they too can learn to drive to wisdom of Steve Wong and eventually master all of his ancient driving techniques. I give driving master Steve Wong and his school the highest praise.   Sean M 5/2014

-  ​I did research on a few driving schools and found that this school has a pretty fair offer for the adult program. With three solid driving lessons with one of the driving instructor: Steve Wong, I felt prepared for the driving test. Steve is pretty cool guy who will teach you good driving habits as well as the important things you need to know on passing the driving test. Another perk to his place is that you can also take the driving test here too, So that definitely beats the hassle of going to one of the DOL and waiting in the long lines. Also, this place is flexible with the lesson times and such.

-  Steve is great! Passed my driving test a few months back thanks to him, really patient which is very important!

-  ​I put off getting my license for a long time, and naturally I was very nervous about it. But the people here were awesome and very helpful. Steve Wong was my instructor and he was very patient and calming. I pass and am now l licensed driver. I am sending all of my friends here? Thank you again.

-  If it were your Birthday today I will give you my greatest gift...... Thank you for your patience, Thank you for the knowledge that you shared, and Thanks you for being a good instructor, A good teacher, Thank you for everything!

​-  Steve is the Best !!!! I passed the test with a score of 94 in my first try! Everything he taught me, I just followed it plus he is very friendly and very patient. Thank You Steve !!!!
