All driving lessons are private, it's just you and the driving instructor. This way you won't feel intimidated by anyone watching and listening from the back seat, and you can feel free to ask as many questions as you'd like.
You need to have a Learner's Permit in order to take driving lessons (or a valid Driver's License for refresher courses). Please remember that you are required to take the 4-Hour Traffic Law and Substance Abuse Education (TLSAE), also known as the Drug and Alcohol course or the First Time Driver Course AND study the DMV Handbook before you can take the Driver's License Permit Exam. The 4-Hour Drug and Alcohol course is required for all new drivers in the State of Florida.
First driving lessons begin in residential or low traffic areas, where the driving instructor will explain the basic car maneuvers: how to make accurate turns, how to make a smooth transition from the gas pedal to the brake and vice-versa, coming to a full stop at a stop sign, keeping a safe following distance, making a left turn on a two-way road, recognizing and understanding street signs, navigating around pedestrians, animals, bikers, and runners.
As the new driver becomes more relaxed and confident behind the wheel, our driving instructor will take her (him) on the main roads and practice lane changing, the proper way to turn in the intersections, approaching, slowing down, and stopping at traffic lights, making a left turn on a green yield, and how to handle unexpected traffic situations.
New drivers will learn to anticipate and watch for potential problems from other drivers. For instance, when approaching a stop sign, they should watch for other cars coming from different directions that may not stop. We teach our students to watch for cars that suddenly switch lanes without signaling or pull out in front. New drivers often have trouble anticipating other cars or accurately sensing how much speed and space certain situations require. These are safety habits that drivers develop with experience and time.
Our private driving lessons include the fundamentals of defensive driving: turning, backing, changing lanes, keeping safe following distances, highway driving, parking, u-turns, 3 point turns, etc.

Whether it’s commuting, going to the shops, or simply taking the kids out, driving is an essential part of personal, family and work life for those of us who live in South Florida. Our driving instructors will help you become a better, safer and more confident driver. Being a confident driver means you can deal with other drivers on the road while avoiding the bad ones.

Our Refresher Driving Course is designed for people who have not driven for a long time, as well as international drivers who need to become accustomed to driving in South Florida.

Affinity Driving School is commited to help new drivers develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become safe, low-risk responsible drivers. We train our students to correctly identify and predict traffic situations, make sound decisions and execute safe driving maneuvers.
One of the most important rules of safe driving in being able to stop the vehicle within the distance that we can see. Driving too fast or following other vehicles too close are the most common night driving hazards.
At night, our ability to see is reduced along with the ability to judge distances and distinguish objects. Nothing looks the same at night as it does during daylight hours. At night, all shapes, colors and sizes are distorded.
The most dangerous time for driving is between sunset and complete darkness because our eyes have not adjusted to the darkness and the headlights do not provide suficient light.
Most people prefer not to drive at night, but there are times when it must be done.
Affinity Driving School is the only Driving School in Florida who teaches defensive driving lessons during evening and night hours (for an additional fee); we understand that night driving is particularly dangerous because we must drive to protect ourselves from other drivers who could be drunk, tired or distracted.
