Ricardo is the best! I am 37 and never drove before, so we had to do all from scratch. First the knowledge test, and Ricardo provided me with all needed materials and instructions/tips on how to prepare for that; I gave it a good 3 weeks of studying and passed the exam from the first time, with only 2 wrong answers out of 50 and got my learners license. Next we started the driving lessons, and we first went for a 10 hour contract, and even though I never sat behind a wheel before, Ricardo brought me up to speed on all the tips and the how-to within the first 2 classes; he genuinely spends every second with me in the car noticing any error, even minor, and correcting it and explaining all through every class everything one needs to know to be a good driver, and how and what to do in every situation, best ways to make a turn, change lanes, back up, use the gas and brakes, etc etc…he trained me in the toughest places one can encounter, including narrow round-abouts and sharp turns, as well as all regular streets, and took me to the highway and I drove there nicely from the first time thanks to Ricardo’s great teaching skills. He took me to a place that has the best set up for parking, backing-up and making three point turns, and made me practice between the cones, from all angles. As we approached the end of those classes, I was much better, but it was clear that I needed more classes to gain more confidence using the gas and make better turns, and Ricardo was able to pinpoint to me all these and where I am still making errors, what is still not right and needs improvements, so we went for 4 more classes, and sure enough, after only 2 of them, I was virtually driving normally, on narrow, normal and large roads including the highway. On the last day of classes, I had my driving test, completed it comfortably in barely 5 minutes and passed from the first time! I highly recommend the Driving Professional School for everyone, even if you never drove before, not only you will learn driving comfortably, but you will be a good driver right after!

I chose Ricardo (aka Jose) because of the amazing reviews I saw on the internet for him. He lived up to my expectations and let me tell you, my expectations were high!!! I am 36 years old and I have only had a couple of driving lessons in my life and by far Ricardo’s was the best. I was incredibly nervous on the first day and he told me to get in the car straight away and drive- I was terrified. But his skills in teaching are great- now after 6 lessons and 4 more to go, I am already a different person behind the wheel. As previous reviews indicate, Ricardo points out the areas where you need to improve, he is incredibly patient and humorous. He instills confidence in you by allowing you to take responsibility whilst gently guiding you to correct any errors. He arrived to class on time and even on the one occasion when he came late because of the traffic, he extended the class without me even asking. With 18 + years experience as a teacher, I felt that Ricardo was very professional, patient and excellent in his job. I highly recommend his school to anyone learning to drive, be it teenagers or mature students, those who are nervous and those who need a little extra encouragement 3 lessons later- I passed the test! On the first time round. I kept debating with Ricardo that I didn’t think I was ready but he continued to encourage me and give me confidence. Ricardo was an incredibly patient teacher- with plenty of experience of hearing all sorts of colorful words! It was really enjoyable to learn from him and I write this in hopes to convince others to try his class- you won’t regret it! Gracias Ricardo
I called Ricardo's school based on the great reviews. I just needed a couple of hours of driving lessons to understand the exact requirements of the driving test in Florida, as I already had a European driver's license. And also because I needed a car to pass the test. I thought the price was relatively high at first, but the complete experience was totally worth it! He picked me up, I drove to a quiet street where we could practice. Ricardo knows how to point out the exact things that you might find in the exam. After the driving lessons, we went to the DMV office to pass the knowledge and driving test. Ricardo stayed with me the whole day, until I got my driver's license and then gave me a ride back home. Moreover, Ricardo is a really nice guy and it was a pleasure to talk to him that day. You can't ask for a better experience.
