Yolanda Cortes

        Yolanda has been a driving and traffic instructor since 1994. She worked for Avus driving school for over 20 years. She found the opportunity to open her own business when Avus closed their doors. Yolanda's Driving School was established in September of 2016 and has been growing ever since.     

        As a parent, Yolanda worried when her only child started driving. This is what inspires her passion to bring the best out of herself and each new driver she teaches. She understands the parent's concern for their kids to be behind the wheel for the first time. Yolanda strives to instill each student with the safest driving habits and self confidence, minor or adult.



Ana is a large contributor to the smooth operation of the school. Courteous and professional, she is the backbone of our day-to-day scheduling and client relations. Time and again, clients report her as happy and nice to talk to.

She is knowledgeable in the operations of the company and of the administrative and legal workings of the California DMV. 

Ana is eager to serve you by answering any questions you may have and making sure your scheduling fits your needs. She is a valuable member of our team.

I wish I knew Yolanda's Driving School sooner. But as they say better late than never! Thank you so much, Fred! You're the best. I finally passed my driving test today, without Fred's outstanding teaching skills I wouldn't make it. Thanks for your patience, effort and the driving techniques that you taught me. Fred will make you feel comfortable and he trusts his students that they can pass it. I like how he helped me bring my confidence back to nail the test today. I am one happy student and I will definitely recommend Fred and Yolanda to anyone!

Yolanda's Driving School is the reason I passed my driving test. I took lessons both right when I got my permit and a couple days before the test. James made me feel prepared and confident, and gave me the tips I needed to succeed. I would highly recommend this school to anybody looking to learn how to drive safely, and anyone looking to pass their behind-the-wheel test on the first try.

I had Chris and Yolanda help me learn how to drive with the 6 hour driving package. Honestly, the were so patient with me. As we moved more towards test day, Yolanda was great at giving me reminders and pushing me to be more prepared as a driver. I decided afterwards to take the driving test with them -- we drove around the Whitter DMV before starting the test and I PASSED! Would definitely recommend to others in the area that want to learn how to drive but don't have anyone to teach them/ or are anxious about driving with their parent
