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.

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 highly recommend Yolanda's driving school! I had an intensive lesson with James, Anthony and Christian and passed my test! All 3 were excellent, professional teachers, very clear in their instruction of what I would be tested on and encouraging!
I didn't realize that you couldn't take your DMV test in a rental car and last minute Yolanda was able to arrange a driver and car for my test. James gIrving me a lesson just before, helped feel more confident and calm going into my test. Thank you so much Yolanda, James and all the team!
