No experience in driving? No problem. Edward is the very person who can help you get prepare to the DMV road test as well as the solid knowledge you need as a responsible driver. I felt so nervous to start the engine of a car by myself for the first time, but he his clear instructions, patience and professionalism calmed down my nerve and then everything became easy and natural. I got my driver's license today after my six hours class, yay! And you will definitely get your driver's license too with the help of him.
Edward Rincon is an excellent teacher! I highly recommend Andes Driving School to anyone just learning to drive or to anyone needing a refresher or defensive driving instruction.
It's very important to note here that Ed not only fires back at independent reviews about his business that don't appear to favor him, but he also doesn't hesitate to call you out by your FULL NAME as well while doing so. So much for confidentiality. That's an extremely low move for a so called business owner and definitely shows he's undermining the privacy of his clients. He seems to forget that it's not the client that has a reputation to lose, IT"S HIM! And firing back at clients is proof of being unprofessional. Basic Business Management 101.
In his response below to one of his client's reviews, he claimed that that client, who he boldly called out by his full name, was new to the US. I don't know what gave him the right to make false claims like that but that client has lived in the US for several years now and I know this for a fact because I am the female friend that was being referred to during their review and response. We may be new to Durham, but we surely have been in the US a lot longer! That was obviously just a desperate attempt to justify himself based on a pointless yet false fact.
Yes, I was Ed's client as well. I'm glad he feels that I was being friendly and receptive. What he doesn't know is that I was already warned about him three days in advance by my friend, the client whose review got responded to. I already knew that no matter what he says I better just keep every serious concern that I had to myself and just focus on the driving.
The one thing that definitely didn't go down well with me was when, towards the end of the lesson, he started saying negative things to me about his other client, my friend for that matter, behind his back. That only begs the question HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR HIM TO SAY NEGATIVE THINGS ABOUT ME TO ANOTHER CLIENT OF HIS? Again, so much to confidentiality. I thought a private lesson was meant to stay PRIVATE! But not with Ed. Latest then is when everything I heard about his attitude was confirmed to me and the condescending tone with which he spoke couldn't be any more obvious. That made me very uncomfortable.
Finally, I have to point out how utterly DISCRIMINATORY and even RACIST Ed proved to be for making an assumption about my friend's place of origin without having been there himself or knowing anything about it. It was totally redundant to mention anybody's place of origin, especially since he's a foreign national himself. It just proved that any of his international clients that don't seem to get along with him get attacked based on their places of origin and that it's them that need adjusting. As if it's the individual that represents the behaviors and conventions of their place of origin. That was irrelevant but Ed seems to miss the point here once again.
Based on my overall experiences with Andes Driving School I personally don't endorse his instructions. His method may be suitable for others, not everyone. He seriously needs to be reminded that he's the one that has to adjust to his students, not the other way around.
So, let's he whether he wishes to fire back at me as well for my independent review.
My daughter finished instruction and driving lessons and got her permit in less than 2 weeks!! Covered more material in that time than other places. Instructors are very professional, friendly and accommodating to personal schedule. Highly recommend!!! A very individual approach to the driving part which is something that I do not find at other places. Quality Customer Service!!!
I was very pleased with Ed's 5-hour course. I was able to get my license very easily after taking it with him, and he was very flexible and ensured that I was able to use his car and get my license before I had to go abroad for school. I am very grateful to Ed as he ensured I was ready for the test but also ensured that I would be a good driver outside of the test, which a lot of driving schools do not do. I would 100% recommend him to anyone in need of good, concise, clear instructions with a guarantee of being a better driver.
