Hayward DMV Information

Address: 150 Jackson Street

Here’s some handy information specific to the Hayward DMV location:

  • Beware of “No Turn on Red” sign and “Keep Clear” zones next to the DMV.
  • While traveling on Jackson, drive close to the 40 MPH speed limit when it’s safe to do so.
  • Near the car wash on Soto near Jackson – if the examiner does not instruct you to turn that means to go straight.  Keep to the right as the right lane is the only lane that goes straight at that intersection.
  • Consider signing up for a 2-hour DMV review or use our vehicle for the Drive Test.

My twin sons took lessons from Bay Area Driving School and passed their license test the first time. They learned defensive driving and did some practice runs near the test site. Instructor was patient and knowledgeable. Thanks!

I knew nothing about this driving school when I signed up to attend. The reason I chose it was because of their name, and wanted to keep the business within the bay area but upon completing the school, I realized just what a good choice it was, I found the study guide, straightforward and easy to comprehend, as well as the testing material. Thanks for making an under pleasant experience very pleasant.Thank you,Greg Belknap.

Erika is a wonderful instructor. Not only is she good at teaching but she also has a great personality that help people feel at ease so students can focus on learning. She helped our 1st daughter a few years ago and now we want her to help our 2nd daughter. We trust her as a person and as an instructor.

We had great experiences with Bay Area Driving School. Three of my children have done their behind-the-wheel training with them, and all three not only passed the license test the first time but they also continue to be good drivers. I couldn’t be happier with this driving school.
