In 2018 I founded Kelly's Driving School in  Davie, FL with the mission to teach Defensive Driving  to our kids in a friendly and relaxed (as much as possible:-) environment. My goal is to get them driving safely, with confidence, and responsibility in our roads.

I have found new needs over the years, and I have set new goals. In 2022 we became a Third Party Administrator (TPA) authorized by the State of Florida to administer the Florida Class E Knowledge Exam (or written test) in our school. It has been a tough path, but today, I can proudly announce that in 2024 we have also been authorized by the state to administer the Florida Class E Driving exam (road test) in our facilities!

From the beginning of your driving journey, until the day you get your Florida Driver License, you can cover all your needs in just one school: Kelly's Driving School.

My extraordinary instructor Elizabeth and I, are authorized by the state to do behind-the-wheel instruction. She is very patient, kind, professional, encouraging, and friendly. I don't have enough positive adjectives to describe her!. We also have Carmen, the sweetest substitute teacher who helps us when we are off, sick, or when we have to attend personal matters. Everybody loves Carmen!

We put our heart and soul into teaching defensive driving to our students:


  • Right and left turns

  • Intersections

  • Speed control

  • Following distance

  • Right of way 

  • Changing lanes

  • Mirrors & Blind Spot

  • 3 point turn

  • Quick stop

  • U-turns

  • Reversing

  • Parking

  • Local roads

  • Highways

  • Defensive driving

Our vehicles (Toyota Corolla 2022, Nissan Versa 2021 and Kia Optima 2017)  are full equipped with a dual break system, additional safety features such as blind spot assist, blind spot mirrors,  rear view mirrors for instructors, lane keeping assist, etc.  Safety is our premise.

After years of experience teaching how to drive, you can relay on my school and my instructors  to teach your kids (or yourself) how to drive straight and safely from the beginning.
