      I agree with Malita, Alvin, and Rudolf. I had to come to the school, although the son was good he does only work evenings. I went to another School and got my license on the first try.

      I had Emilio as my teacher and he was great! He didn't yell or get upset. He kept all his appointments and arrived on time to my house. He made sure that I was safe and well prepared to get on the street by myself. I thought he was a cool instructor. I say he is the go to guy if you need to learn how to drive. He has been a driving teacher for over 40 years and he knows his stuff! He will take you to the Sec. of State and show you exactly what you will be tested on. Yeah he can be strict and serious but he has a sense of humor. Anyway he did not disrespect me in anyway. I thought his service was EXCELLENT!

      I have driven with both Luis (the son) and Emilio (the father) a few times. Their service is poor, they yell at you, are impatient, late for appointments (or do not show up) & do not apologize. There is a lot of miscommunication with the ladies in the office who promise you a different service then the actual instructor gives you. Emilio and Luis do not prepare you well for the driving test. If I would have listened to them I would still be taking classes with them and loose my money. Luckily I didn’t and I past my driving class today (after my friends helped me out with a few classes). If you’ve never driven before, please consider another driving school. This driving school is very unprofessional. If you can drive already, consider a different school as well.

      Don't even bother trying this school. The old guy Amilio rescheduled twice and made excuses every time and canceled the appointment. When I tried to reschedule for a lesson he plainly refused saying Lawrence and Damen or Superior and Fairbanks is too far and wanted me to come to the driving school to take the lesson. He also said that the only other instructor, his son, only does classes in the evening and so I should find a different school. Very rude and very very unprofessional. Any school should be better than this one.
