Frequently Asked Questions

Are you approved by the Province?

Absolutely both our in class and our online courses have the Provinces stamp of approval.

You seem new ?

Yes and no, as COVID caused some problem in the province, some of us that have been with other places for years decided that since a lot of us taught other programs for DLC, why not add what we did for others.

When do you hold courses ?

All of our courses will be on our scheduling page. Generally all our courses are on a 6 week rotation.

We have the 25 hour learn to drive course available online,

Can I go driving before completing the in class or the online portion?

We really want student to complete the in class part of the course before hitting the streets, what is learned in class is important concepts that will need to be used on the streets.

Can I fail ?

Our Driver Improvement, 55 Alive and Defensive driving course there is a 6 hour minimum, and those that have not stayed are given the choice to attend another course.

The new drivers course does have tests and quizzes, but we find the prep work we do and the ability to take them twice is more than enough that failing really does not happen, however students have been asked to leave because the instructor team have decided that their attitude and or behavior clearly contrary to the learning experience or they have shown dangerous behavior on the road beyond normal.
