We are MTO approved!
Visit Ontario Ministry of Transportation to see us on the list of government approved driving schools.
We are a community oriented business working towards providing St Thomas, Aylmer, Belmont, Dorchester and surrounding areas with safer roads. With a recent surplus of students from the West Elgin region, we’ve expanded our reach to include students from Dutton, West Lorne, Rondey, and Wallacetown. Our curriculum sees a customized local influence from: MADD, Share the Road, the St Thomas Police Department and the Josh Fields Support Network.
What sets us apart from other drivers education schools is the emphasis we put on educating our future occupants of the road on distracted driving. Our distinguishing qualities don’t end there! We also exceed the MTO’s standard requirements for educating beginner drivers, while providing an interactive approach to educating our future occupants of the road. We personalize our teaching methods to accomidate individual students needs and comfort levels and create a friendly environment amongst students by incorporating group work.
