What You'll Get
Gas-powered cars soon will be replaced by electric cars, which will be replaced by two-person motorcycles powered by rapid eye movement. Learn to drive before it's too late with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a choice of a prelicensing class required by the New York state DMV or introduction to motorcycles plus a training course at Ferrari Driving School (up to a $40 value). Although the introduction to motorcycles with training course is valid only at the Long Island City location, the prelicensing class is offered 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 more than four decades. A prerequisite in the state of New York for scheduling a licensing road test, the five-hour prelicensing class includes both lecture and film portions. Students 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 one-hour introduction to motorcycles with training course introduces students to the basics of pretrip inspection and important training concepts. A motorcycle permit is not mandatory for participation in the course, but customers who want to acquire it can visit here.
Though Ferrari Driving School sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

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.
