School, Inc. opened for business in April of 1981. Owner Donato Pinto and his wife Antonia, worked endless hours
to build their beloved school destined for success. Brooklyn Driving School became a school of "FIRST'S".
Always ahead of his time, it was Donato who created the method of Motorcycle Instruction (with the radio's and the speakers in the helmets) that
we still use today. We are the first and only school ever to teach using this method!
Through the years, it has proven to be THE BEST way to effectively teach people how to safely ride a motorcycle. Accordingly, he taught himself how to use
computers and managed to develop the first computerized 5 Hour Class presentation.
Keeping a respectable reputation, and
providing a good service always came easy because they loved their job and always cared about their students. Donato
always said, "The best form of advertising is through word of mouth. Do good for people and you will always
be busy". His words of wisdom have been passed down to his children. Today, the second generation is keeping
the same work ethic. Donato's daughter Lucy and her husband Phil Ragusa have continued to carry on the same family
traditions. "We really like it when we get students who's parents took lessons with us years ago. It lets
us feel like we're part of their family".
Since the beginning, we have taught the mainstream "automatic" vehicle. Also, we were one
of the first- & we continue being one of the few, who teach "stick shift". Our most popular vehicle
of choice, has been and will always continue to be, "motorcycles". "It's an honor when people
take the time to come from all parts of New York to take lessons with us. The dedication on their part shows us
that they believe in the quality of our instruction. Your dedication is sincerely appreciated." Recently, we have
expanded our services to meet the needs of our customers by introducing "Scooter" lessons, as
well as "CDL,B-P".
"We look forward to having you become a part of our driving family too!"
