My experience at the Newport Driving School with Carlos was amazing! I passed my driving test right after one 2-hour lesson with Carlos. His calm personality and great sense of humor along with his great driving tips, helped me out the entire lesson. Carlos was patient, helpful, and made sure that you understood every possible scenario on the road. Not only is his service extremely professional, it is also convenient and affordable. The price is well worth it and you’ll feel as if you’re getting the bargain of your life. I would recommend Carlos and the Newport Driving School to everyone.

I’ve had another instructors teach me but Carlos is the best. Had my first driving class yesterday with him and I have learned so much in just 2 hours. With his help and guidance I am sure I will get my license.He is a true professional, I will recommend him to all of my friends who plan to get their license.

-Update: After only 4 hours of practice with Carlos I managed to pass my behind the wheel test! Once again I stress that Carlos is a true professional, he concentrates on your weaknesses and doesn’t move on to next step until you perfect that skill. I would of not get my license if Not Carlos. I would recommend it to anyone if asked, no doubt all your money is worth Carlos’s lessons. Thank you very much to Carlos and Bewport Beach driving School you guys are the best!!
