Luke is a Great Driving Instructor! 11/19/2009

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. Pros: Luke Cons: none - except for a 2 hr. wait which was the DMV's fault... more

VERY SATISFIED 11/10/2009

I am very satisfied with my driving instruction. They kept me focus and restored my confidence in driving an automobile. I COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT THIS SCHOOL. more

Great Experience! 9/17/2009

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. Pros: Flexible lesson schedules Cons: non more

Great Experience! 9/17/2009

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: Flexible lesson schedules Cons: non more

Pros and Cons 9/6/2009

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. Pros: You'll pass your test Cons: Not the most pleasant experience more

A great experience! 8/18/2009

I went to Grand Prix after reading the reviews online. I was not disappointed. I'd taken driving lessons years ago at another establishment and did not pass the road test. I felt a little deflated so I did not try again until my permit was almost expired. I initially purchased the 5 hour package, but then decided I needed more lessons so I added 5 more. The package includes the lessons, road test appointment and car for the road test. I had Luke as my instructor. He taught me above all patience. He also immediately pointed out my errors and taught me the correct way in which I should have handled the situation. I passed my road test with zero points. Thanks Luke for being patient and hanging in there with me. more

Highly recommended Roadtest service 8/16/2009

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. Pros: Deliver the roadtest service as promised Cons: None more

Luke is amazing! 8/11/2009

Luke was an INCREDIBLE instructor. He is very patient, friendly, and accommodating. I just passed my road test thanks to him -- I started out feeling shaky and nervous, and now I feel very confident in my driving abilities. Go with Luke. Pros: Luke Cons: The school is a little disorganized. more

I became interested in this school after reading a lot of glowing reviews, to my surprise, the school itself was dodgy, the staff discourteous, the car was a wreck and the instructor, Lucas , never taught me anything useful, all he did was spend all my and his time listening to music, of course i failed my road test, no surprises there, i recently signed up with another, far more professional school and passed with 0 points. Please steer clear of Grand Prix and Lucas Pros: None Cons: lack of professionalism , interest in students etc more

Ask for LUKE! 6/23/2009

my sister had taken her lessons before me and used grand prix but got a different instructor. he couldn't make one of her lessons but she needed to finish her hours because her test was in a couple of days, so they sent her luke, and she said he was great. he told her things she should know about the test that she didn't know before, and she passed right away. so when it was my turn for my lessons i asked for luke and he was great. so funny and personable, but i still learned everything i needed to know to be well prepared for the test. he made driving easy and i never felt nervous or scared, and passed my road test on the first time after 10 lessons, never having drived before. the office is pretty disorganized and i had some issues with scheduling lessons and stuff, and since luke was so popular with other students make sure you book your lessons with him in advance! but otherwise it was great, i know a bunch of friends that have used grand prix and i always reccomend luke. one of my friends had a lesson with another instructor that didn't go well and she was near tears, but she switched to luke and things are great now. so definitely ask for luke!!! Pros: great teacher, flexible hours, fast appts for road test Cons: office is disorganized and conflicting more

Great learning experience 6/18/2009

Thanks to Eddie - I went from zero knowledge of driving to a licensed driver with their 10 hour driving program (over the course of one month)! Pros: Free pick-up and drop-off Cons: The actual office (where you do the paperwork) is .. crappy! more
