I've always had a fear of driving. When I was sixteen years old, instead of getting excited about getting my driver's license, I was dreading driving... So I avoided it. I avoided it for seven years. Now that I'm getting my Bachelor's degree in college, I thought it was time to get over this phobia and take the necessary steps to get my license. I was getting tired of relying on people taking me from point A to point B because of my phobia. I tried learning on my own, with my parents, boyfriend, whoever, and it just didn't seem to work. Somehow, they made me even more nervous about driving. And then my mom started suggesting taking driving classes. At first, I shrugged it off and didn't want to because if I was nervous with my own family, surely, I would be nervous with the driving instructor. As months passed, I just started feeling stuck. The driving phobia wasn't going away, so I looked up places on google and came across JMP driving school (it had exceptional ratings). I ended up calling the place to set up my classes, and they basically set me up right away for all 7 classes. I called on a Friday, and by Monday morning was my first class. Let me tell you, this was the best experience of my life. Not only is the office highly organized by helpful e-mails and reminders, but the driving instructor was an absolute angel. She basically guided me with driving from scratch and made me feel extremely comfortable. She was like a friend! By the seventh class I was on the highway, merging, and switching lanes in heavy traffic without her help, and without being nervous. I'm happy to say that I'm 23 years old, and today I finally got my license (my first try). Although I was nervous (which anyone would be!), the whole experience was a breeze thanks to them. They allowed me to use their car (you have to pay extra, but I think it's well worth it), my instructor set up my whole test (I didn't have to worry about a thing), and she went through the whole test with me before I actually took it. I'm extremely grateful for this experience and would like to thank the staff of JMP driving school, but most of all, I'm deeply thankful for my driving instructor. Thanks to everyone, I'm a confident, safe, driver, with no more phobias.

I wanted to learn how to drive and I make sure I did everything I could to get a license and feel comfortable on the road, driving in and out of Miami. I think this school is excellent for many reasons. They are all kind and professional when you sign up. You are assigned a driver for your lessons. The Driver I had did and excellent job of teaching me good driving behavior I can now rely on when I am on the road. Things that I am sure just from driving in Miami most seasoned drivers don't even bother with, like really making sure you check that blind spot when pulling out or turning and remembering to turn that blinker on when your pulling out, changing lanes and so on. Making that three point turn or parallel parking is a breeze. And let me tell you I have sat with my friend as she parks her car in the city whose driven for twenty years and she can't parallel park well at all - and she's a seasoned driver. These people taught me a safe and secure habit in parallel parking that I will take with me to the grave! You will learn excellent safe and proper driving habits that I can promise you will not see when you drive in Miami along side the "experienced" drivers; as they cut one another off, sway and swerve like monkeys with car keys. I know I have the tools to become a good driver because of the one on one training from this school. I know that when I took my driving test I passed it with no point deductions because of the excellent training and personal care, and my instructor who was there for me that day to not only give me support but also last minute instruction and courage to do a great job taking my test. The true test of an excellent and safe driver is on the road and they give you all you need. I would recommend JMP Driving School one thousand times over. THEY ARE EXCELLENT!!!!
The first day, the instructor was kind and patient and taught me and conversed well to ease me into driving. Her heavy accent took some hard listening, but I kept up. The second day, she answered a couple phone calls (apologising for each one) and then had me drive to another clients house to pick something up, and gently corrected me when I needed to be. She told me that I would not be ready for the driving test this day, as if she was planning not to teach me enough to pass. The third day, she answered many phone calls, apologised for only a couple, and was rude in how she corrected me. She was impatient, and after teaching me how to do things and allowing me to try them on my own would not let me do them without her express permission afterwards. She refused to tell me where we were going until right before I needed to turn, and with my poor eyesight it takes a couple seconds longer for me to read signs than she liked, and she got mad for it. The last day, she spent the majority of the time playing bejeweled and spent minimal time instructing me. The time she did spend was okay, but she was not patient or kind in how she taught. Within ten minutes of my being in the car that day she snapped that she was not my babysitter and I spent the remainder of the day trying not to ask questions or look at her wrong. Overall, she taught me the minimal of what needed to be done. She did teach me, but after the first day I was reluctant to attend my lessons.
I really needed to get my driver's license and soon! I didn't want to wait anymore. And in seven lessons, I've got it in my hand! And in only two weeks!!! My instructor was very patient with me, understanding, but he pushed me just enough. Because he knew I could do better. He taught me everything that would be on the driving test, and we repeated them all until I was comfortable. He reviewed with me before the test so that I would feel calm and secure. Everything he instructed me was on the test! And by the time we did it, it was practically second nature to me. He picked me up at my home and dropped me off at my job in the morning. It was very convenient and helpful. He taught me how to drive and I'll always remember him, and thank God for his patience and kindness and honesty. I thought I would get everything done in the six lesson package, but I did need an additional session. And it was a bit pricey. But the cost was about what all other driving schools charge. The car was new and very responsive, and I got to use the same car I was practicing with in the test. All in all, everything was worth it! I have my license... and I feel safe and comfortable driving. Thank you Manny! And to the receptionist for being so patient with me and adjusting to my schedule. I HIGHLY recommend this driving school. Thank you so much. God Bless!
I was very scared about driving because I was in a car accident a few years ago; and determined to overcome these fears I called a driving school to try with somebody next to me. It was another scary experience when the person took me to very busy roads and the highway on my first lesson, I was simply dying when the instructor told me "that's the only way to do it". I decided driving was not for me, about 2 years later taking to one of my friends she told me her experience was very much different and she gave me the information of JMP Driving School. I tried one more time (based on what my friend told me) and it was really different, they work at my pace, and lessons began in a very quite neighborhood and they gave me the time to regain the confidence I needed to drive on main roads. To make the long story short, after some lessons I was driving anywhere, it was not easy but I found in these people friends to help me overcome my trauma. I took my driving test and I passed it with no problems after being taught every I need to be a safe driver. If your case is pretty much like mine, I just tell you like me friend told me, "don't give up, give them a chance and you'll see you can". Thanks JMP for everything, I will never forget you guys.
I am from New York, and it seemed to me that my new life in Miami was going to be a hell without a car. I never needed before, so I decided to look for a driving school and internet was my first option. I was very impressed that people working in many driving schools in this city do not speak english. Reviews were not the best, and customer service by phone and online support almost "0" zero. I saw the JMP Driving School website and I called them up. What a difference since the very first call, the receptionist was very helpful in leading me step by step in how to get my learner's permit to begin my driving lessons. The online support and courses, simply easy and informative. The driving lessons, full of information, knowledge and fun. Highly professional people ready to pour on you the skills, patience and stress free environment in the car that I really needed. The driving test was a piece of cake after everything I learned, nothing could be easier. If you need a driving school and you are struggling to choose the right one, call these people and experience the difference. Thanks JMP.
In my experience of learning to drive with JMP Driving School was very positive and enjoyable in my steps of learning to become a new driver. I believe that who you decide to go with when you are learning to drive is very important. I had an experience before learning with JMP that was unpleasant, as the instructor was very impatient and was not good with young people, he did not seem one bit motivated in his job but when I went with JMP, I saw the difference straight away and had all the qualities that my old instructor did not have. I passed my driving test the first time and learning to drive is a massive milestone in my life and great achievement that opens so many doors. I recommend JMP to everybody, they're patient, knowledgeable, professional and relaxed. I am now enjoying the freedom that driving has given me and all this may not have been possible for some time. If you are not sure your lessons are great lessons, then look no further JMP Driving School is the one for you. So a big thanks to JMP.
In these economic times, businesses are competing against one another for clients. They make promises in the long run that they are not able to fulfil in order to cut out the competition. JMP Driving and Traffic School is one of the rare exceptions. From the moment of my inquiry to the follow-up callls with all the right accurate information-they have fulfil all their promises and more-great customer service equal to success in getting the job done. They promised me to assist my nineteen year old college student in passing the permit and concluding with a passing score in road test- the license. From arrangements to transportation, all was done with precision and care. They are a wonderful group of ultimate professionals, and I am so fortunate to have found them.They made this perilous process so easy, removing all obstacles with sound alternatives to get the results needed. Thank you for everything! I recommend this business 100%. VG
I am a single mother and I was looking for a good driving school, since I had heard terrible stories about them here in Miami. JMP Driving School was my option after calling and reviewing many of them, they were extremely patient with me even though I am the sort of person to test anyone's patience to the limit! My lessons were always planned out and they always made sure I was aware of my abilities on the road as well as other drivers. I found their teaching methods very easy to follow. I could understand why they have been graded 5 stars all over the internet, they're very passionate about their job, not only did I feel like the lessons were structured individually for me but they taught me how to drive safely. By the way, I passed the driving test the very first time, they were a great help in that moment of personal stress. The experience was from the beggining to the very end, far beyond what I was thinking it was going to be.
With so many driving schools to choose from, picking this driving school was the most exciting adventure for me! Moving into a fast-paced city, I was flabbergasted by the expertise & training that JMP Driving School has offered me. Not only did I get my FL driver's license in less than a month but I enjoyed passing my road test with confidence. They always called me to remind me the appointment a day before, the instructor was always on time for my sessions, and flexible to drop me off in a different location from the pick up one at the end of the driving lessons when I needed that. My opinion, people like no other in this city. I truly recommend this driving school to Floridians in Miami who wish to get their license straightforwardly. It was really an excellent experience! They were Courteous, Professional, Patient and driving lessons were given in very good cars.
