What Our Students Are Saying

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.

Great driving school. Went there for 5 hour class and immediately after signed up for a road test package which includes lessons, road test appt, and use of their car for test. William was my instructor and I feel I was very lucky to have him. He’s a terrific guy and makes you feel very comfortable behind the wheel. He pinpoints your weaknesses and help you improve in those areas. Gave me confidence to pass road test which I managed to do on first attempt. Can’t recommend Grand Prix and William enough.

Lance Lange

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 am so, so thankful to Mr. Barcena for getting me through this. Thank you and good luck taking the test.
