I’ve been driving for years but need a refresher to update my skills.
We offer one-hour assessments, allowing us to guide you in your choices for training.
I’m worried about my son/daughter driving in the winter.
That is the best time for a new driver to learn! Winter driving should always be included, as it is a fact of life in Ontario. We’ve created a Winter Driving course to overcome any fears you or a family member may have, making you comfortable behind the wheel in all driving conditions.
Do you offer the M1/M2 course(s)?
Currently, we do not; however, we do offer Ontario’s only Advanced Motorcycle course for experienced riders. This course follows the training principles of the UK Police and the Institute of Advanced Motorists in the UK.
How do I know when it’s time to change my oil?
We offer a Car Care course that will answer this question, and many more relating to taking care of your second biggest investment.

I’m an experienced driver but want to improve my skill set.
Our Defensive Driving Course is designed for experienced drivers, to take your driving to the next level.
How do I know you are a reputable company?
We are approved by the Ministry of Transportation Ontario, a member of the Better Business Bureau and the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber of Commerce.
All of our instructors are licenced with the MTO, including properly insured and back ground checked by the Waterloo Regional Police. Our cars are insured, safetied and registered with the City of Kitchener. Always look for your instructor’s licence on display – and confirm that it is valid. Also, check that the vehicle has a green City of Kitchener plate. Check that the phone number on the roof sign is the school’s phone number and NOT the cell phone of the instructor.
Driving lessons cannot exceed two hours per day – this is provincially regulated.

Do I need my G1 to do the in-class portion?
Absolutely NOT! You can do the in-class and HomeLink portion of the course prior to writing your G1. This will help you prepare for the written test. You must have you G1 prior to doing your in-car.
My friend just did a couple hours of private lessons. Wouldn’t that be quicker and easier?
Definitely not! With instructors offering private lessons, they may not be certified or licenced with the Ministry. If you do not take the full 40-hour Ministry approved course, you will not qualify for an insurance discount and you will not qualify to reduce your eligibility for your G1 Road Test. Getting lessons from someone who has not been properly trained or certified as an instructor results in a dangerous situation, that could lead to a collision, or even death.
Do it right! Training is not expensive – NOT training can be.
