My son, age 16 took a package including lessons and driving test. He had a consistent instructor (Augusto). For each lesson, he was made to feel confident but also challenged. Augusto was such a kind instructor and patient and also, most importantly, his driving ability increased rapidly. The administrative staff were also very helpful as, at times, we had to reschedule lessons due to his being away at school. On the final day of the test, my son unfortunately learned his grand-father had passed away. I took Gus aside and explained the situation. He somehow helped my son to make it to the test, focus and . . he passed! We are very grateful and hope my daughter soon can take the course as well.

Came here for the 5-hour certificate course, signed up for the 7.5-hour driving lesson package, and upgraded it to a 10-hour package when the date of my driving test was confirmed. I had minimal experience with driving a decade ago, so I was very nervous and stressed about learning and taking the exam. I didn't even remember which side was gas and which was the brake in my first lesson. I'm happy to say that I PASSED THE TEST! Lisa at the front desk was so warm, friendly, and caring; she was such a joy to interact with. Scheduling lessons was easy, and they were flexible with date and times. They were also able to get me the testing site I requested in the date range that I wanted, which was great. Noel was the instructor for my 5-hour certificate course, and I chose him for my driving lessons. He was very experienced and knowledgeable. He made sure I knew what to do, how to correct myself if I made an error (eg. when parallel parking), and how many point deductions to expect with each mistake I made. He prepared me very well. I was glad to be able to have a final 1.5-hour lesson right before the test. I strongly recommend Grand Prix!

Did everything I asked of them in a friendly, confident manner and on a short timescale.

The classroom is perfectly comfy and the instructor does his best to get you through the necessary steps as quickly as possible whilst making sure you've understood the material.

My instructor for the practical test, Augusto, was a great guy. He gave me a brief lesson before the test and instilled me with plenty of easy tips and confidence to make the test itself a breeze. He even took me for a mcdonalds on the way back to my office.

The people at the school were not organized, and often called me several times to ask me the same question.

HOWEVER, my driving instructor, Alberto, made up for that AND some. He was the best. He could not have been nicer or more helpful. He was incredibly thorough, and he was very attentive to my specific needs as a driving student. Above all else, he was sincerely encouraging, and really instilled in me the confidence to believe in myself and, ultimately, pass on my first test. He was a joy to work with, and I cannot thank him enough!

Customer Testimonials

Augusto was an great instructor and gave extremely good tips. Wouldn't have been able to pass my test without him!


William is literally the greatest human driving instructor that could ever potentially exist. Brilliant mind. He breaks things down. He is logical. He keeps things simple, while at the same time letting you know everything that you need to know in order to the pass the test. Amazing guy in general as well. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing to learn how to drive. He will drill the fundamentals into your mind while putting a smile on your face.


I highly recommend Grand Prix Driving School. I joyfully passed my test on Thursday, in Yonkers. I never would have passed if it the instructor, Mr. Barcena had not been so knowledgeable, kind and patient. Having a great sense of humor and knowing when to use it effectively comes from years of experience which Mr. Barcena has.

I had my license for decades but I neglected to renew my license because I had not received the renewal form in the mail and my inability to use my brain and check the Year of expiration really altered my self confidence. I felt like such a dunce. It seems funny now but I was so distraught and demented it physically hurt. I am so, so thankful to Mr. Barcena for getting me through this. Thank you and good luck taking the test.


Recently completed a course with this school and had fantastic time. My instructor, Mr. Barcena, was both knowledgeable and funny. Highly recommend this school.
