The exclusive Young Drivers Approach to Collisionfree! Driving helps drivers of all ages meet the challenges of driving on today’s roads.

The Young Drivers Dryden Driving School has been under the leadership of Centre Director Maria Bagdonas since 1996.  Maria brings to the table over 25 years of experience training drivers of all ages in the exclusive Young Drivers Approach to Collisionfree! Driving.  Every class is a unique mix of students and experiences.  Maria’s passion stems from the fact that driving is dangerous and that she is truly providing knowledge that could save a life someday.

Some of the topics covered in the classroom include:

  • Highway/Freeway Driving
  • Adverse Conditions 
  •  Risk Perception

The Young Drivers in car instructors have over 15 year’s experience between them!  They are patient and passionate about teaching new drivers the life-saving skills they need to recognize risks on the road and respond effectively. Young Drivers believes in continuous learning so each instructor must complete a specific number of classroom and in car hours annually to ensure they are always providing the highest quality instruction to our new drivers.

Some of the skills Young Drivers in car instructors teach are:

  • Car control (proper steering technique, speed control)
  • Parking (including parallel parking)
  • Head on collision avoidance
  • ABS braking in an emergency

All of our in car training is provided in vehicles supplied by Young Drivers.  All Young Drivers vehicles are equipped with special safety features to ensure the safety of the new driver and other road users during  in car lessons.
