ADES Center opened its doors in 2003.  The school was founded in Tampa, FL to provide a bilingual educational environment where Spanish speaking immigrants could learn English as well as receive other type classes to help them integrate easier into the American job market and lifestyle.

In 2004, ADES Center expanded our educational services to include:

  • Florida Traffic School and Seminar Classes to support all residents in the Central and Western portions of Tampa and Hillsborough County. We also have several students who drive to our classes from Pinellas, Sarasota, Polk, and Pasco counties.
  • A selection of special seminars for business and professionals.
  • A course that prepares Resident Immigrants to take the US Citizenship Test.

In early 2006, we enhanced our Florida Traffic School capabilities to include Online Internet classes to complement our Live classroom seminars. Just like our traditional style Live classroom courses, Internet traffic school classes are available in English or Spanish, but are now accessible by any Florida resident with a computer.  Online Classes can be taken anytime — 24/7, from any computer connected to the internet.

ADES Traffic School Instructors have been certified by the National Traffic Safety Institute (NTSI). Our Traffic School classes are approved by the State of Florida and satisfy Traffic Safety and Defensive Driving Course requirements in all 67 Florida counties.

Mrs. Leonor was Very Informative

Mrs. Leonor was very informative, and she really took time to explain how stress and anxiety can cause bad driving. I’ve learned the best way to avoid negative driving situations is to be calm.

Enjoyed My 12-hour Driving Class

I thoroughly enjoyed Leonor in my 12-hour driving class. She made the 12 hours go by fast, and the material was not too difficult.

Great course to reflect on driving habits.

Covers information on many topics like the point system, and laws regarding driving. Great course to reflect on driving habits. Thanks!

Driving School

I would recommend this class if you had to attend a driving school for whatever reason. I of course didn’t want to attend but once there Mrs. Leonor made the time worth while. With the information given I can say it made me open my eyes to the way I drive. Thank you.

Makes the court order 4, 8, or 12 hour course entertaining

Great school. Makes the court order 4, 8, or 12 hour course entertaining so it doesn’t feel like a chore. Very informative if you don’t know the laws of the road. Would recommend!!!

Best Traffic School I Have Attended

This is by far the best traffic school I have attended.

The instructor (Leonor Adams) is very attentive, makes the class interesting in addition to educational (one would think sitting for a 8-12 hour lecture on something we all do would be hell)

Of course, everyone has different levels of knowledge, but this class (and instructor) has an engaging way of teaching and making the class enjoyable.

It was a 2-hour drive to this class, and while the drive was longer than I’d like to have taken, I definitely recommend it for anybody taking this course (I’ve taken other courses that felt like days as opposed to being a surprisingly enjoyable experience)

Definitely Recommend!

12hr Driving Improvement Class

Today I came into a 12hr driving improvement class dreading and upset that I had to be here. I didn’t think I would leave here learning anything new. Boy was I wrong!!!!!! Mrs. Leonor made this learning experience fun and entertaining. I can honestly say she has positively impacted the way I will drive. She was awesome!!!!!

Learned More from this Class than I did at my own Driving School

I honestly learned more from this class than I did at my own driving school while first getting my license. I enjoyed the class all together.

Opened My Eyes and Enlightened Me

It was actually a lot better then I ever imagine. The instructors were amazing. Mr Smith kept it light very humurous but serious points to understand driving and responsibility. Ms Leonor gave amazing wisdom responsibility honesty and respect of driving and the consequences of what can go wrong without following the rules. She also opened my eyes with a lot is self thought, understanding and believe in the person I am and the person I want to become. She opened my eyes and enlightened me to things I didn’t realize within myself as a driver and as a person. I really appreciate this class today.

Not Just about Being a Better Driver but Being a Better Person

I appreciate when people make learning fun as much as being good instuctors. Its what makes a lesson unforgettable and have long personal retention. A lesson i will hold for a very long time. They made a bad scenario for me be fun and educational at the same time. Very unexpected and very appreciated. Im stress free and a better driver thanks to them. Its not just about being a better driver but being a better person in the community we live in and i learned that here. Thanks and dont ever change.
