Why Young Drivers of Canada Driving School?

YD Supporting Communities

Leaning on each other and drawing strength from our community is an asset during this time. For each full-course purchase, YD will donate $50 to CanadaHelps.org to support COVID-19 relief efforts across Canada. These donations will be matched by the Gore Mutual Foundation to further the reach. CanadaHelps funds are split between healthcare/hospital and community care.

As our company responds to COVID-19, the health and safety of our employees and customers remains our top priority. In keeping with community-based social distancing measures, YD has made the decision to postpone all in-class and in-car training effective immediately across all locations. Our eLearning program (4h) is available for students who are interested in continuing their training during this time, as well as those who are interested in enrolling in the near future.

"Dear Young Drivers – Just a note to say how well treated I was by my instructor Chris today for my driving lesson. I am a senior who has interacted with many different people in my career. In my experience Chris was truly a most gentle, informative and helpful guide. He put me immediately at ease and was able to gently correct a few week points. Thank you again Young Drivers and especially Chris" - Olga Z, Victoria
