Young Drivers of Canada Drivers Education Programs
Our exclusive programs at Young Drivers of Canada not only how to drive and how to park, but also include comprehensive training for exclusive in-car emergency response techniques. New Drivers also receive CogniFit training, an exclusive YD cognitive training program that can improve short-term memory, dealing with divided attention, reaction times, changing plans and speed of judgment. By improving cognitive driving skills, YD graduates have a much better chance of avoiding collisions.
Our YD driving instructors also teach key skills including freeway/highway driving, head-on collision avoidance, gravel shoulder drop-off, and rear crash avoidance - just to name a few. The instructor will demonstrate life-saving techniques that you will safely practice with a professional by your side. This means that if and when this happens for real, you'll know what to do!
The Senior Driver
At Owen Sound Young Drivers we also offer CogniFit for senior drivers. This is an online cognitive assessment that can help determine the risk of a collision and work to reduce that risk through training. In-car assessments are offered that can help seniors understand modern driving techniques or prepare for government re-testing.
Under the YD Collisionfree!™ brand, we work with clients to help them get behind the wheel again. We work with rehabilitation clinics and occupational therapists across the country in providing driver competency assessments and hand controls training in many cities.
Free Online G1 Practice Test
If you know someone preparing for their G1 or have a client who could use a refresher, please direct them to our website to take advantage of our free practice test.
The YD Driving School That Teaches How to Stay Collision-Free
For over 40 years, Young Drivers of Canada has been teaching new drivers of all ages. We offer the most comprehensive driver training courses in Canada, including our exclusive in-car emergency response techniques training. YD has taught over one million novice drivers to drive safely. We can help you to pass your G1 or G2 road test, gain confidence in your driving, or brush up on your driving skills.
Young Drivers own Collisionfree!™ Approach teaches a series of habits and sub-habits that demonstrate how to watch out for other drivers errors - mistakes that could result in avoidable collisions. We monitor the quality of our programs on an on-going basis with four levels of quality control, and Young Drivers of Canada is the ONLY ISO9001:2008 registered Canadian driving school. ONLY Young Drivers teaches exclusive emergency maneuvers training, such as:
- Rear Crash Avoidance
- Emergency Braking
- Emergency Swerving Techniques
- Head-on Collision Avoidance
These are only a few of the life-saving defensive driving techniques YD students are taught. Notably, under Ontario’s graduated licensing regulations a novice driver may only drive on highways when accompanied by a licensed driving instructor. YD students are specifically taught how to drive on these busy roadways.
At YD We Ensure Our Graduates Are Ready for the Road
Every YD student must pass three in-class tests and two in-car evaluations in order to be certain that they are truly ready to drive a car on their own and take the drivers licence test. In car evaluations will also be conducted on their defensive driving skills, while the YD simulated driving license road test assists YD students to get ready for the real thing, thereby increasing the likelihood of their passing the driving test the first time to successfully obtain their licence.
