Letter From The President – To All Those Seeking Driver Education


For those of you who I have not had the pleasure of being acquainted with, I am Suzanne Parkins President and CEO of Gear Up Driver Education. I spent much of my childhood in the close lying town of Port Stanley and raised my children in the same realm. In the year 2012 I chose to direct my attention to creating a way to positively contribute to the community both my family and myself regard with such high respect. The outcome? A drivers education facility.

After extensive training from Canada Pro Drivers, Fanshawe College and Humber College, Gear Up Drivers Education Academy Inc. was opened in the year of 2013. With an overwhelmingly warm reception from our community- and unmeasurable help from the team at the Elgin Business Resource Centre- the success of our company has surpassed every expectation.

As the owner and operator, I care for the safety of all my students and welcome the opportunity to give you the best head start in road safety – each student is assessed to ensure that you are ready for one of your biggest challenges and privileges in life – being a responsible and safe driver in Ontario.

The team at Gear Up Driver Education is committed to improving road safety and maintaining the highest of standards of teaching when it comes to the new driver looking to be the best they can be.

I thank you, and all of the people that make up our community for contributing to the success of Gear Up.

I welcome all suggestions and comments and may be reached at anytime by calling 519-317-8940 or by email at suzanne@gearupacademy.com

Kindest regards,


Suzanne Parkins DI, CI
President & CEO
