Grand Prix driving school is “THE GREATEST”
Listen up People…. if you’re looking for driving lessons…look no more Grand Prix driving school is the best they took care of me with the up most respect and Professionalism….and I passed my road test on the first try…. My driving instructor Tommy was the greatest, he didn’t just teach me what I needed to know to pass the road test, and he also taught me what I needed to be a safe and efficient driver. He was patient and believed in me more then I believed in myself on some days ….What are you waiting for call or go visit the school , ask Elizabeth for Tommy
Great Instructor! Kuya Ed!. I really hate driving but have to for work. I was so sure that I would not pass my first driving test but I did. Thanks to all the practical things and instructions of my instructor, Kuya Ed. He is really a great instructor! He is not bookish and has a technique that makes things fool proof and easy to remember!
LUCK IS THE BEST INSTRUCTOR.
I failed my first road test with another instructor. Then i had Luck who made me feel confident and relax. He also taught me exactly the skills that proved most important to pass the test;
Luke also happens to be a super nice guy; i recommend him!!!
Hardworking, sincere, result oriented.
This my 4th driving school and after 3 failed road tests with the other schools I passed today - my first attempt with Grand Prix.
I guess practise matters a lot and its just a matter of time, but I do think the instructor, Ed made a big difference. I found him to be very sincere, constantly giving feedback, check this, observe that, not this way, look here.. on and on and on.. he has firm manner - which I appreciated a lot. I already new the basics.. I was just failing because of jittery nerves and Ed was the ideal remedy for that. If you can drive under his instructions and to his satisfaction - you can pass the test! I found the rest of the staff to be very polite and engaged as well - working with me to set up, reschedule and plan the lessons and tests. Thank you Grandprix, especially Ed!!
Wonderful.. I had Ed Panis as my instructor and I passed my test. I really appreciated the instruction and with his instruction I was able to pass. I would highly recommend Ed as an instructor and taking course at this driving school.
Luke Rocks!. Luke is an excellent driving instructor that makes you feel comfortable when you are the very first time behind the wheel or a very good companion when you are established driver and just wanting to refresh your driving skills. He is the one who gets you to the road test just once and you don't have to comeback for the second time or third time...
Luke is a Great Driving Instructor!.
ok - so I failed my first road test before and then booked my second appointment through Grand Prix. Had a 60 minute lesson with Luke before the test and he taught me exactly the skills that proved most important to pass the test; he takes no prisoners which is exactly what is needed here.
Luke also happens to be a super nice guy - highly recommended!
I was discouraged at first because the school's prices were much higher than what I was used to (Washington Heights vs. Midtown Manhattan) but after I found out they could schedule lessons to accommodate my schedule, the price was worth it.
My instruction was Mr. Ed Panis and if you can get him as your instructor, you will be pleased. Mr. Eddie, as he is called, is very knowledgeable on the rules of the road and, even better, he makes sure that you understand them and not just follow them.
I thank Mr. Eddie for his patient instruction which allowed me to feel relaxed and confident for my road test which I passed!
Also, to comment on someone else's review where they said the staff was not very friendly.....I started going to Grand Prix in January of this year (2009) and never encountered rude behavior from any staff member. I was actually surprised at how friendly and patient they were while juggling multiple phone calls with students.
I highly recommend Grand Prix Driving School.
Pros and Cons.
So here's the deal:
The place itself is run-down and kinda sketchy, the staff is not very friendly and sometimes after you book your lessons they wont have any available instructors, which is obviously a pain. But they do in the end know what they're doing, even if they don't seem to.
The instructors are actually quite good. They will help you pass your road test even if you're not a very good driver. The road test is not rocket science and the instructors know exactly what you need to learn to pass. So in that sense it is good. However, the facilities and cars are kinda gross, but luckily it'll only take a few classes to get the hang of it.
Tips: book your road test as soon as you pass your pre-licensing course, and book all your lessons ahead of time because sometimes they won't warn you and all the instructors will be booked.
Highly recommended Roadtest service. I got my roadtest appointment on time before I go back to college. Instructor was thorough during our roadtest simulated lessons and the staff are friendly and patient, They worked very hard to meet my deadline and to get my license. Highly recommend the service of Grand Prix.
