We Are The Best At What We Do … Everything Driving!

“You know you’re top in your industry when the competition tries to imitate your web site, duplicates your articles, and even uses a similar name.” Said Paula Sylvester chuckling from Avanti’s Boca Raton office. “People often say it’s a form of a compliment but, when it comes to behind the wheel instruction, drivers ed and extensive knowledge on drivers licenses, tickets, suspensions and everything else that goes along with the driving privilege, our clients know they’re getting the best their money can buy. That’s why everyone chooses Avanti! Because they know they’re getting the best!”

Avanti Driving School is South Florida’s first, and most highly reputable driving School in North Broward and South Palm Beach County.

Established in 1983, and based out of Boca Raton, Florida, Avanti Driving School has been providing private driving instruction tailored to the individual needs of their students of all ages for over 30 years!

At Avanti Driving School, our private driving instruction curriculum is designed to help the beginning student with important driving basics. Areas of instruction covered are: city, residential and highway maneuvers that actually increase the student’s behind-the-wheel awareness, and instill confidence and safe driving practices.

All Avanti Driving School students receive:

    • Private driving instruction in 100% smoke free cars.
    • All lessons are based on the student’s individual needs.
    • All lessons required by Florida Department of Highway Safety, and for safety reasons, are conducted in State Certified, dual-controlled, air-conditioned NEW vehicles which are inspected daily for safety.
    • At Avanti Driving School, there are no upfront fees to pay in advance, students are not charged by “zip code”, and
    • most importantly, students are under no obligation or pressure to take a certain number of lessons. With Avanti Driving School, students take only the amount of lessons that they (or parents) feel is personally needed in order to become a safe, confident driver.

When the time arrives for the road exam, Avanti Driving School can be there with you if needed. For an additional fee, students can secure the car in which they were instructed in.

Road Test reservations include: student pick-up, car usage for road exam and return transportation.

Students can either choose to pay for instruction in one of the following ways: as they learn (prior to each lesson), or in advance. At Avanti we never ask for advance payments.

At Avanti Driving School, all instructors are full time professionals who are very patient, encouraging and understanding. And because Avanti has taught more students than any driving school here in South Florida, our instructors are particularly well versed with people who are nervous about learning how to drive for the very first time.

Rest assured, all driving instruction begins in low traffic areas, where the basics of driving are explained and reviewed while instilling good driving behavior. Avanti Driving students will become confident behind the wheel while learning: how to make proper turns, parking, three-point turns, lane change, road rage, and basic driving maneuvers. As confidence is gained, the instructor will take the student into heavier traffic, and onto the freeway and before long, if requested, for the road test too!

Successful completion of our state-approved driver education course’s alone will not make new drivers an “expert” behind the wheel. Traffic safety education involves family and and/or personal factors, such as: motivation, maturity, and perceptive abilities. These factors play major roles in the development and safety of new drivers.

Throughout our behind the wheel course, emphasis is placed on safety and supervised practice with a licensed parent, guardian or experienced driver in order to develop precision in the use of skills, processes, and responsibilities

Evidence also shows that often it is not poor driving skills that cause a collision among new drivers, but inexperience and driving attitude. Inexperienced drivers combined with proper guidance after formal driver education has taken place should include and encourage responsible driving behaviors. By doing so this will have a sustained effect on the new driver by minimizing the risks new drivers face. Continuing education is not the responsibility of our school. However, with Avanti, we take it a step further like no other school!

Why Is This Course Important To You?

It really depends. Most parents are aware that their insurance company may offer a *”New Driver” discount providing they supply their insurance carrier with the certificate of completion from a State of Florida Certified school. However, some insurance companies such as; USA, Liberty, and Farmers (to list a few) require not only a behind-the-wheel instruction certificate BUT, drivers ed certificate too!

*Note: Not all insurance companies are created equal. It is important to know what your insurance company requirements are in order to obtain a new driver discount.

Rest assured, all of Avanti Driving School New Driver Certificate courses include our online Drivers Ed course at no additional charge.

However, we realize many areas within the Great Sunshine State of Florida do not offer drivers ed. As a convenience to our out of area residents, this course is available.

DE 32 Hour Course Only – No Driving – Fee: $155.00.



Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among teens according to the Centers for Disease Control’s Teen Driver Fact Sheet.

Older teens are more likely to be involved in fatal crashes than younger teens. In addition, older teens were twice as likely to be involved in a fatal crash between midnight and 6 am than younger drivers.

1,886 drivers age 15 to 20 died in motor vehicle crashes in 2015, compared with 1,723 drivers in this age group in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Research shows that when teenage drivers transport teen passengers there is a greatly increased crash risk. The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety released a report in May 2012 that showed that the risk of 16- or 17-year old drivers being killed in a crash increases with each additional teenage passenger in the vehicle. The risk increases 44 percent with one passenger; it doubles with two passengers and quadruples with three or more passengers. The study analyzed crash data and the number of miles driven by 16- and 17-year olds.

Drivers age 16 to 20 accounted for 5.5 percent of all licensed drivers, 8.5 percent of all drivers involved in fatal crashes and 12.0 percent of drivers in all crashes in 2014. Seventeen percent of drivers age 16 to 20 who were involved in fatal crashes in 2014 were alcohol-impaired, which is defined by a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 grams per deciliter or higher.

The DOT found that more teenagers are involved in motor vehicle crashes late in the day and at night than at other times of the day. Teens also have a greater chance of getting involved in an accident if other teens are present in the vehicle, according to research from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and State Farm.


36 Percent of 10 – 20 year old male drivers who were involved in fatal crashes where speeding at the time of the crash. NHTSA says that speed-related crashes cost Americans $40.4 billion each year.

Speeding was a contributing factor in 28 percent of all traffic fatalities.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 16- to 20-year olds, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

Every state has a graduated driver’s license law that includes a three-phase program to help teens to develop more mature driving attitudes and gain experience behind the wheel.


In 2015, 10,625 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes.  1,886 drivers age 15 to 20 died in motor vehicle crashes in 2015, compared with 1,723 drivers in this age group in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 29 percent of all motor vehicle traffic fatalities in the United States.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates 1,089,171 drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics in 2015. The arrest rate works out to one arrest for 200 licensed drivers in the United States.

Teen drivers ages 15 to 20 are 1.6 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash, compared to adult drivers between the ages of 35 and 40.


New preliminary 2016 data shared recently from the NHTSA (National Center for Statistics and Analysis) estimates that as many as 40,000 people died in motor vehicles crashes last year, a 6% rise from 2015. If those numbers bear out, it would be a 14% increase in deaths since 2014, the biggest two-year jump in more than five decades. It also means that 2016 may have been the deadliest year on U.S. roads since 2007.

What our Customers Say

“My daughter was terrified to drive. No matter what we did we could not get her behind the wheel to practice. There was always an excuse. With Avanti’s help – she’s safely on the road. It just occured to me that the gal in the office knew what my daughters’ issue was right from the start. We are so happy we went with Avanti.”

Patricia A. Coral Springs, FloridaParent

“Mom had to hang up her keys and her assigned caregiver didn’t have a drivers license to drive mom to the doctors, grocery store and do some errands. Avanti helped us from the very start all they down to finish line. I am confident that my mom will be in good hands driving with her caretaker and I don’t have to worry.”

Roy P. Deerfield Beach, FloridaAdult - Caregiver

“All of our kids went to Avanti and everyone we know goes to them too. My kids drive GREAT!”

Laurie F. Boca Raton, FloridaParent

“We tried a different school in the beginning because Avanti was booked solid and my son was anxious to get behind the wheel. Long story short: We should have waited for Avanti and we LOVE them! Very thorough just like at home.”

Coreen A. UKParent

I’m in the medical field and for years I wanted to learn how to drive but was afraid. Paula was wonderful and the instructor Janine was AMAZING! I would recommend Avanti to anyone needing driving lessons.

Sharon M. Hillsboro Beach, FloridaAdult

“I called Avanti expecting an answering machine and got a person! THAT ALONE was fantastic. I explained to her what was going on and her suggestions were great. So glad we went with Avanti. Now we know what we’re going to do.”

Gerald H. Delray Beach, FloridaAdult Child/Caregiver

“We PASSED! Thank you VERY much for your instruction on driving! The roads are a safer place thanks to you! Thanks Again! P.S. Your help made the difference!”

Karen & Kimberly G. Boca Raton, FloridaTeenagers

“I had surgery and it’s been awhile since I was behind the wheel and quite frankly – I was afraid to drive. I’m very happy and glad that I called them and will use them again if the need should arise.”

Philip G. Lighthouse Point, FloridaSenior/Adult

“WoW! My new name for your school is: AMAZING AVANITI! Teaching our son on our own was not easy for my husband and I. There was always anxiety and that fear of my son hitting something or, making a wrong mistake and endangering our lives was always on our mind. That’s when I saw one of your cars and decided to call. That was one of the best phone calls we ever made and now our son drives us everywhere and there’s no arguing either. Thank you Mark! Thank you Avanti! We will be telling everyone about you.”

Lisa G, Boca Raton, FloridaParent

“Your school is the bomb! Between my husbands schedule and my schedule it was difficult to get in quality driving time for our son Nick. Either we would return from work too late or, other activities got into the way.  Nick aced his road test the very first try – 100% – and zero mistakes. Thank you for working with our goofy schedule and making our son a safe driver.”

Anita H. Coconut Creek, FloridaParent

“I recently moved from NY to FL with my job and haven’t driven in years even though I have a valid drivers license. I also didn’t know my way around and noticed that the transportation system down here is a little behind the times which made me really nervous because I needed to drive to work.  The people in my Florida office told me who to call and I arrived a few weeks early to settle in and begin my lessons which was  scheduled in advance. My instructor Janine was WONDERFUL! With her help I learned the Florida rules (there’s some rules here that NY doesn’t have) and now I know my way around and feel very confident about it too!”

Sara T. New York, NYAdult

“I’ve had my learners permit for many years and I’m an adult. I thought for a long time that I never would get my license until I discovered Avanti from a co worker who used them for their teen. I spoke with the girl in the office who was very understanding and encouraging and she told me she had the perfect instructor for me. I decided to book an appointment and Janine was great. They are patient, encouraging, knowledgeable and true professionals. Without them I never would have gotten the confidence, experience and knowledge to pass the road test. I owe my driving independance to them and very grateful too!”
