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 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.

Here is how you can find our Young Drivers Halifax Driving School:

Our Halifax main office and classroom is located in central Halifax at 6169 Quinpool Road. It is called the Quinpool Centre where Canadian Tire and the Superstore are located and we are on the second floor at suite 205.

The entrance to use is next Wendy's Restaurant either from the back parking lot or from the front on Quinpool Road, you simply come up the stairs and turn right and you will see our Young Drivers sign.

LEARN HOW TO DRIVE AND SURVIVE with defensive driving skills!

A Young Drivers Course is the best insurance you can buy for a new driver. We have spent over 40 years developing our program and we update and improve it every year. As a matter of fact in 2013 we spent over $500,000 on a complete update on our classroom material including new Blu-ray technology.  Young Drivers is the only driving school that recertifies their instructors every year to ensure great quality.

NOBODY TEACHES WHAT YOUNG DRIVERS DOES to help you avoid collisions!

Our exclusive Collisionfree! Approach Program trains new drivers to anticipate problems well in advances they can be proactive in their driving so that these problems do not affect them. We are also the only program that teaches evasive manoeuvers both in class and in car, such as head on collision avoidance, gravel shoulder recovery and rear crash avoidance.

We believe that since collisions are predictable they are avoidable. Since good decision making is critical to avoiding collisions we also have an online program called Cognifit to help with that. It was developed by a cognitive psychologist to improve mental skills.

LEARN DRIVING SKILLS FOR LIFE, NOT FOR RIGHT NOW with help on road test prep and basic driving skills.

Rather than just teaching you how to pass the road test our goal is to keep you alive once you have done that. Once you pass the test you are on your own and that's when the real test begins

All of our courses for new drivers have four components that are essential to creating a safe driver.

  • They have the 25 hours of classroom where you learn how collisions are caused and how to predict them and then avoid them.
  • Next we have online cognitive training to help with decision making skills
  • 10 hours of one on one in are training where you learn how to use all the theory from the classroom. At the end of each session your instructor uses your YD workbook to give feedback on your progress. 
  • Finally we have an online Co-Driver Program which helps with practice in between in car sessions with your instructor. The idea behind the Co-Driver program is that if the person you are practicing with has a better understanding of what we are teaching then the practice time in between is that much more effective.

It is never to late to learn how to drive, or practice your parking, or refresh your evasive manoeuvers. Drive Safe, Stay Collisionfree.

Also for those people who believe that they do not need a full course we also offer private in car sessions as well.
