We offer classes 2 to 3 times per month and encourage you to register early as classes fill fast. Whatever driving skills you need, we can help. If you have safety concerns for your teen or yourself on Ontario’s hectic, crowded streets and highways, our courses and training greatly reduce the risk of an accident.

Informed, extensively trained drivers are safest on the road, and that is what we are here to provide. If you need lower insurance rates for yourself or your teen, completion of our classes may reduce the cost. If you are interested in demerit reduction or want defensive driving courses, we have a course just for you!

At Gear Up Academy, our goal is to keep you driving safely on the road as long as possible. New laws and regulations are introduced every year. We seek to educate drivers on such changes whilst working with you to improve any bad habits that may have been accumulated over years out there on the roads.
