What makes Young Drivers different?

Driving Instructors

New drivers need receive the best driver education possible, to drive collision free, that's why our driving instructors and teachers are trained and re-trained annually using our internal recertification training course. This makes sure that all of our highly trained instructors are always up to date as what is happening in the ever changing world of driving.

In Ontario, we are the only Driving Instructor College approved by the Ministry of Transportation. That means that we are the only driving school in Ontario that trains our own driving instructors. Our driving instructors and teachers receive training that exceeds all government standards for new instructors. There is a reason that generations of families have chosen and continue to choose Young Drivers.

That reason is quality! We are the only driving school that is ISO 9001:2008 certified!

What does that mean?

It means that quality driver training and customer service are our top priorities to ensure that all of our drivers have fun and absorb what they learn. After all, driving can and should be fun!

Practice your driving like any other task!

Like anything, practice makes perfect. If you want to get good at hockey, you need to practice. If you want to get good at piano, you need to practice, practice makes better. Practice is very important to learn good driving habits. It is important to practice what you learn to get better and better at it.

This is why only Young Drivers offers parents and other co-drivers the tools to properly help their new driver, learn the YD Way.
