I cannot say enough positive things about Dennis, Dianne, and Jack Stacks driving school.  My son was very very nervous about learning how to drive but Dennis took him under his wing, was patient, a great coach, and left a great impression on my son.  After training was complete, my son was confident and passed his drivers test!  Thank you Dennis and Dianne!  I highly recommend Jack Stacks Driving School!

“I found this driving school for my teenage nephews, and both them had fantastic experiences with Dennis Stack. He was supportive, friendly, attentive and helpful in shaping their driving lessons to improve their awareness, caution and focus while behind the wheel–and I cannot say enough about these business attributes for something so important as driving in society today! As a college professor here in the Bay Area, I’ve seen the way other teenagers drive their cars around campus/parking lots, and I’m scared to be near them! But Dennis gave my nephews great instruction and instincts, to the point I am completely comfortable driving with them as a passenger in their cars these days. Thank you, Jack Stack Driving School!! I know my nephews learned life-long lessons behind the wheel with Dennis.”

“I highly recommend Jack Stack driving school! Dennis is a great instructor and my daughter passed the driving test the first time!  And all her other friends that we referred to him also passed the first time!”

“Jack Stack was recommended to me by someone who I know dearly. I give them a call got to talk to Dianne she give me some hints what my instructor would be looking for.  She was very nice and pleasant to talk to. I really had a great experience learning to drive with Mr. Dennis . He was both encouraging and lots of patience with a focus on helping my confidence to drive. I passed my behind the wheel the first try , obtaining my drivers license is a life goal for me with his help I have achieved it. I would gladly recommend them to anyone. Thank you for your professionalism.”

“Once my teen passed her permit test, I asked friends for recommendations. I selected this school in part because I wanted my teen to have the same instructor each time. Dennis was great at making her feel comfortable with driving and yet taking driving seriously. I also appreciated how flexible they were at accommodating my teens changing schedule and always promptly called me back. Looking forward to using them again with my next teen.”

– Ang S., Clayton

“Was a fabulous experience for us and our son!Dennis was super patient and ensured we were progressing against schedule. Was also super flexible with pick ups and working around school sports schedules. Would recommend Jack Stack driving school to everyone!”

– Mark S., Clayton

“Dennis was fantastic – always on time and taught my daughter what she need to know to take the test. He comes to the house and ran her through the driver’s test several times. I highly recommend him!!”

– Diane D., San Francisco

Both my sister and I used Jack Stack Driving School for our drivers training. We both passed our tests on the first try. Dennis is an awesome instructor and makes the lessons entertaining and full of tips. I was extremely nervous before my first appointment, but after meeting Dennis and seeing how the lessons would go, I was looking forward to every subsequent lesson. I would recommend this school to anyone looking to become a great driver!

I find it interesting that the only sub-par review on this page is from a parent, not even someone who was taking the lessons. There’s no way they deserve anything but a perfect review!”

– Chris L., Oakland

Dennis is great! He is patient and kind. My daughter is very shy and he was able to bring her out with his subtle humor. As a parent, I loved being able to attend the lessons and even learned a few things about driving. I like that he offers (4) 1.5 hours lessons instead of (3) 2 hour lessons. I have highly recommended Dennis to all of our friends and family!”

“Dennis is very patient and reliable.  Our daughter had a great experience learning to drive with him.”

-Carolyn P., Orinda

“My lovely wife was raised in the Philippines and had never driven so much as a go-cart growing up. Driving a car was certainly a new experience for her. After trying another driving school and lot’s of hours with me as a white-knuckled passenger, we finally came across Dennis from Jack Stack. He was very knowledgeable about the actual driving test and helped to give my wife she needed to pass the test with flying colors. Way to Go Dennis!”

– Glenn Davis, Husband of Student Driver

“Just got my license today thanks to the support of Dennis helping me remember how to drive, after not having been behind the wheel for the entire10 years of being a US resident. Has the calm and relaxed disposition required for the job, as well as being warm and witty. my regular hour sessions with him through January were actually relaxing and a break from my work. Thanks so much Dennis, now the wife and baby will have a chariot to the hospital come April…”

– Craig I., Oakland

“Dennis did a great job pacing the lessons for our teenage son and having him fully prepared for the DMV drive test.  Our son received his permit in July 2011 and had an initial set of behind-the-wheel sessions with Dennis in the following two months, then we took a break during the school year to allow our son to get plenty of experience before licensing.  This meant that there was a gap of several months before the final behind-the-wheel session with Dennis this July.  What was particularly great was the final lesson was a dry-run in the neighborhood of the DMV office (in our case Walnut Creek) which made a big difference in reducing test anxiety.  We even scheduled a bonus lesson after licensing for our son to practice parallel parking.  Dennis is patient and upbeat and created a supportive dynamic during lessons.  His use of his car without “Driving School” markings is a plus to prevent other drivers from creating stress.  Dennis was always very responsive in scheduling.  Highly recommend for teenager driver training.”

“We love Jack Stack Driving! My husband and I were so pleased with the experience and training our first child received, we used them again for our second child a couple years later. You make the student driver feel at ease and really teach driving skills from a practical viewpoint. They learned how to actually put the textbook learning into the real thing. Our student drivers were treated like real people at Jack Stack Driving, not just a number like the mass-production driving schools. I love the personalized instruction you gave them, as it helped them really work through and fix their trouble areas and be totally comfortable behind the wheel. Jack Stack Driving really prepared them well and set them up for success! Both my children passed their drive tests with flying colors the first time! I would recommend you to anyone!”

“Dennis prepared both of my boys for the driving test – and, more importantly, for being safe, defensive drivers in ‘real life’, too.”
