State-of-the-Art Young Drivers of Canada Drivers Ed Programs
Our exclusive driving training programs at Young Drivers of Canada teach not only how to drive and how to park, but also include comprehensive exclusive in-car emergency response techniques training, that are updated every year. Increasing challenges drivers face when they learn how to drive and want to pass their road test include driver distraction and increased traffic congestion. This is why at Young Drivers we teach our students the skills they need to meet the challenges of driving on today's roads, in addition to helping them pass their driver test! Only at Young Drivers new driver receives CogniFit New Driver, a 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, rear crash avoidance - just to name a few. As part of getting your drivers license, the YD in-car driving instructor will demonstrate life-saving techniques that you will practice with a professional by your side. This means that when, and if it happens for real, you'll know what to do!
The Senior Driver
At Owen Sound Young Drivers we also feature “CogniFit - Senior Driver”, an online cognitive assessment that can help determine the risk of a collision with training to reduce that risk. In-car assessments are offered that can help seniors understand modern driving techniques or prepare for government re-testing.
Under the YD Collision free!™ 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.

In car evaluations also have to 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 driver test the first time to successfully get a driver licence.
