Here is some helpful information about our Shelburne Young Drivers Classroom.
The philosophy of Young Drivers of Canada is that collisions are predictable and preventable. Our in-class instructions is built on the CollisionFree Approach. Our programs offers each student realistic and relevant strategic and tactics for safe driving. In the classroom the following are covered: Handling adverse conditions, taking care of yourself and your vehicle, survival tactics, emergency situations, risk perception and driving responsibly.
New Local Centre Owner Brenton Alex Murdoch
When I first started with Young drivers of Canada, Jeffery in Guelph needed help for a short period of time.
At that time I was teaching in car training only, but I was teaching in Guelph, Cambridge, Elora, Fergus.
From there I started teaching for Faith Morphy, the Young Drivers Centre I was originally hired to teach in.
My schedule for Faith included Kitchener, Waterloo, and I have done a number of road tests in Stratford.
Things were moving along well when the Brampton Young Drivers Centre needed help, so I was moved on a part time basis to Brampton, aproximately for a year and a half and got things squared away there.
I continued with my responsibilities in the Kitchener and Waterloo areas when an opportunity arose in the
Listowel area. There I would need further training with YD so I went back to Young Drivers school to learn
in class training. I have been there now for 3 years teaching part time and full time in the Kitchener and Waterloo
areas for a grand total of 8 years.
The next chapter in my life has taken me by surprise, I will be taking over the Orangeville and
Shelburne Centres. My goal is to provide each and every student with high quality service.
