Pros and Cons

One big advantage of learning how to drive with Best Driving is their sheer amount of choices when it comes to courses. Particularly interesting is their long drive option which is useful for those used to drive around the city but has less confidence in the high-way.

The company itself is quite established and their training vehicle fleet is quite extensive. Best Driving also has a lot of really good ratings both on Facebook and Google.

One con of this driving schools in Cebu is that their reach is confined within the locale of Cebu and that they only have one branch. So in connection to that, it is of no doubt that they see and train a lot of people every day so we recommend scheduling ahead of time. Regardless of the cons listed above, their instructors are polite, professional and very patient even with slow learners.
