I remember that in the 90's, I had to go to Aurora Blvd in Cubao just to take my driving lessons. And then we'd drive in Marikina. The last few days of training would be at the inclined portion of Gen Ordonez coming from Marist School. That's where I learned how to drive a car in "hanging" position. Unlucky for me that during those times, you didn't have a choice of car and so I had to learn the stick shift type even though our car was automatic. The car was also a non-airconditioned car which made learning to drive a bit more unbearable and stressful.
Now you don't have to go far away as there are driving schools in Marikina. Dynamic Driving Institute is located along J.P Rizal St. in Sto Nino. Their main offices are at 319 and 442 J.P. Rizal, Sto Nino and with other branches at 18 E. Sumulong Highway (before Marikina birdge), Concepcion, Bayan-bayanan Branch (in front of Conception Church) and Bluewave Marquinton Mall. They are accredited by LTO. They offer driving training courses for both manual and automatic types with different packages starting from a 2 day rush course to a 15 day course. All the cars they use are air-conditioned. Plus they offer lectures on troubleshooting, defensive driving and traffic rules and regulations. Learning how to drive now is much more easy and convenient.
To inquire and enroll at Dynamic Driving Institute, you can contact them from their main offices at 948-6476, 941-7884 and 0915-3488539 for their Sumulong and Marquinton branches.
