What You'll Get
Gas-powered cars will soon be replaced by electric cars, which will be replaced by two-person motorcycles powered by nightmares. Learn to drive before it's too late with today's Groupon: for $19, you get either a pre-licensing class or car care class at Ferrari Driving School (up to a $50 value). Although the car care class is valid only at the Steinway Street location in Astoria, the pre-licensing class is available at all four Ferrari Driving School locations: Astoria, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Jackson Heights.
Ferrari Driving School, one of the largest driver training schools in the metropolitan area, has been instructing students in the fine arts of automobilization for over four decades. A prerequisite in the state of New York for scheduling a licensing road test, the 5-hour pre-licensing class includes both lecture and film portions (a $40 value). Students will learn car-piloting essentials such as defensive driving techniques, what to do in case of a collision, and how to suavely slide across the hood of your car. Ferrari’s two-and-a-half-hour car care class introduces students to the basics of vehicular awareness and maintenance (a $50 value). Motorists will learn how to check oil and ascertain tire pressure, as well as how to properly feed their car the gas it needs to keep spinning the earth under its passengers. The car care class also teaches students how to choose a good mechanic, and when necessary, how to purchase a new car. Call ahead to choose your class.

About Ferrari Driving School
The scream of skidding tires and the screech of a horn precede the copper taste of adrenaline in your mouth as pigeons and sparrows lift from the sidewalks. Did the sound scare them, or the sight of an onrushing auto? Domenico Pinto doubtless pondered this same question when he established the Ferrari Driving School in 1968. Originally founded to help dyed-in-the-wool and immigrant New Yorkers drive more safely, the school has now expanded to usher more than 6,000 students a year through motorcycle-, truck-, and commercial-driving instruction. No matter the vehicle, Pinto and his family specialize in helping drivers obtain personal licenses and commercial certifications, and learn defensive techniques that help them avoid fender benders or accidentally starting a demolition derby.
