Check out the serious BENEFITS below that you get by completing the Full Course!

Benefits!

  • Students may take their driving test to achieve a graduated licence in 9 months after obtaining their learner’s permit providing the course is completed. Without taking the course the wait is 12 months.
  • It is now compulsory for drivers to complete a driving course to remove the ‘N’ off their licence to make the transition from a graduated licence to a full licence. This course meets those requirements.
  • Students will receive a certificate that is recognized by the insurance industry, upon completion of the Full Drivers Education Course. This certificate will bring overall insurance costs down. Caldwell Roach Insurance branch located in Truro explains that without driver training, a newly licensed male driver with PLPD premium would be $900-$1100 a year. With driver training, the cost would be $500-$700 a year lower. The price of the driving school is paying for itself in a little over one year!
  • A driving record equals the number of years with a driving licence. Most insurance companies start new drivers out with a driving record of zero however with completed driver training; a new driver would start out with a driving record of three. This allows for more savings as it would take a new driver with no driver training course three years to obtain the same level of savings.

Our courses are operated on a first-come, first served basis. The classroom focuses on road rules using real life driving scenarios, road signs, basic car maintenance, maneuvers, environmental aspects and safety. You do not need your learner’s licence to begin Drivers Education. The classroom portion is available to those not yet 16 years of age. The in-car portion deals with putting the skills learned in the classroom to the test. Here you will gain valuable experience to becoming a better driver.

A valid learner’s license is required for the in-car portion. The program does not guarantee successful completion of the driving exam however we certainly try our best to prepare for the test that is governed by an examiner at the DMV (not our instructors). A driver with a learner’s permit should not have to wait more than nine months from the first class to the driving exam – in most cases less if the student has obtained their learner’s license prior to entering the program.
