Joshua Arce (Owner/Instructor)
Joshua is Mauricio’s son. He has been working for the family business for several years. Not only does Joshua teach driving lessons but he is also responsible for running the family business once Mauricio retires. What motivates Joshua is that he wants to teach young drivers how to be safe and responsible drivers. He wants to teach his students from his own personal mistakes. Many years ago he was involved in an horrible accident because of texting while driving, and he is dedicated to teaching new safe drivers to not make the same type of mistake. Joshua has a fun yet strict and knowledgeable teaching environment. When Joshua is not working he likes to travel and attend music concerts.
Carlos Flores (Instructor/Owner)
Lorena is an office coordinator for The Academy of Driving. She has known Maurice since he taught her sister to drive two years ago. Not only did he teach her as well but she is now an office assistant. She is currently going to school full time, working towards becoming a veterinarian.
Carlos has been an instructor for AOD for over two years. Previously having 35 years working as a pressman, he was excited to transition to instructing behind the wheel traning. After teaching his four daughters to drive, he has become dedicated to teach others how to become safe, defensive drivers. When Carlos is not instructing, he enjoys spending time with his family or working with his hands on DIY projects.
