Lack of communication between employees... rude mangers especially Joe Amaral bad attitude doesn't know how to speak to employees lack of communication skills... Employees that been working there for 5-18 years at other location for training they dont have the number to communicate with them by phone how does a company not have the training location Number?? Its your company... Lack of communication needs improvement Rude mangment needs improvement It makes you wonder what else?

I would like my review for this dealership to be positive because I did find my car after searching online for a month. However, I had a very stressful and overwhelming problem with this dealership. After I purchased the car and I went to the DMV to register the vehicle, I was turned back because the dealer did not sign the back part. I called the dealer and told him that he had neglected to sign the back portion of the car's title; instead of apologizing for his mistake, he blamed it on me. It was very deceptive since it was not my responsibility to indicate to him what part of the title he should sign. Since the dealership is two hours away from my hometown, I decided to mail the title, let him sign it, and in turn, he would mail it back via express mail. Well, you might have thought this was easy. He delayed mailing the car's title. He had a lot of excuses, they were all unsubstantiated. Because I did not have my car's title and I could not drive my car because it was unregistered, I hired a car service to return to the dealership to get the title. $150 Eric offered a free inspection for my car and I'm glad I refused his service. I decided to visit another mechanic shop for the inspection because of his past gaslighting tactics. If he could not apologize for his simple mistake, then he was capable of doing anything. Well, guess what? My car's inspection failed. The front left suspension was broken. I decided to pay the $300 bucks to get this fixed because I did not want to encounter the incompetence of Eric and the rest of the workers at Amaral Bus Company, Inc. He was aware that the car would fail inspection, hence his continued suggestion that I inspect the car with his company. He even said, "Well, you will pass the inspection here because you brought it here." How disturbing! I will never use this company again and I'll try my best to inform other customers to do the same.

By far the worst driving school. They were contracted by the Town of Dartmouth and we were told we “had to use them.” A total waste of money. The wife sat in the car, as the instructor, and made phone calls during the entire lesson. They were late to pick up, they missed appointments. She taught my daughter nothing because she was on the phone the entire time of her “lessons”. I found out too late that this was happening. They should be banned from the field. I complained towards the end and on the day of my daughter’s driving test, she deliberately instructed her incorrectly, so my daughter failed the test. I should have reported her then. RUN, do not walk away from this company. Also, an incredibly rude woman.

The worst school owner only cares about money. They take students to the test without proper training 10 guy's practicing in the same truck there's a guy named Joe I mean the younger Joe he's rude and disrespectful if you want to get your cdl go somewhere else they don't even deserve one star.


In the past two weeks I have witnessed illegal moves at Fairhaven’s High School by them when the INSTRUCTOR was driving. Once parked out back for at least TWENTY minutes in the MIDDLE of the road Not stopped, PARKED. And then stopped blocking the entrance to the front driveway, stopping cars from entering from Main Street. My son will not go to this school when he becomes of age next year because I am absolutely BESIDE myself with what I’ve witnessed in such a short time. How can they be teaching these kids how to drive when they can’t even drive themselves?!

I do not recommend there CDL driving school!! The owner Joe amaral only cares about how much money you spend there and is very shady . They have one driving instructor for the entire cdl school. The private lesson are not private at all , there will be another person there taking a private lesson at same time or a group of 6-8 people from the cdl course they have witch is a joke. The people who took the cdl class a course Can’t even pass there test after 3-4 times taking test . The cdl instructor is over worked and hates his job and you will get no valuable information from him . Do not go to this school. Go to Parker’s school in Avon they have a guarantee that you will pass and great reviews .

I went to this driving school to help get my CDL. I passed the test on the first attempt. Prior to my first class, I had zero truck experience.

They sell cars too, whereas, they keep the advertisements on craigslist long after the car is sold (waste people's time). Additionally, salesman tried to sell me a vw by saying he used the car to drive to New Hampshire because its good on gas. However, when asked where he drove to in New Hampshire he balked. They also charge $150 dealer fee for cars purchased, they do not list this fee in their ads.

Worse driving school to deal with. Ripped off both of my sisters $600 each. The instructor was giving them half hour lessons for the price of an hour. The instructor Ana Wouldn’t take checks from them and only took cash and wouldn’t give them receipts , charged them both for 2 hour lessons but would only give them 30 minute lessons. Always bad mouths her clients Very unprofessional. My sisters were nice enough to let it go but I wouldn’t want this to happen to anyone else so just a heads up for new drivers. Stay away from this company specially Ana!

Amaral cdl driving school is horrible ! What a nightmare experience. First Everyone who takes there class a cdl course fails the test 3-5 times before they get there license some won’t even get there license . I took private lesson and there is one class a instructor for the entire school and is he over worked and hates his job and is impossible to get any helpful information out of him. Also private lesson are not private , there will be another guy taking private lesson there in a tiny little pathetic parking lot in the slum of New Bedford or there will be a huge group from the cdl course there with you while taking your “private “ lesson. Oh ya they only take cash for private lessons no checks or cards just cash . Joe amaral is a shady guy that is only out to get as much money from you as possible. Stay away from this school . Try Parker school in Avon and they have a guarantee that you will pass with Parker school.

(1) Their car for sale advertisements say negotiable, but they do not budge on price. (2) They charge a $150 dealer fee for cars purchased and thia fee is not listed on their ads. (3) They leave advertisements on craiglist/autotrader long after car is sold. (4) Rude service on the phone.
