Life-Saving Defensive Driving Skills & Road Test Passing Prep 

Young Drivers of Canada has a philosophy when it comes to collisions, which is that accidents are predictable and preventable. What this translates to is that the majority of the consequences of a crash can be avoided, including fatalities, injuries and specifically, insurance claims. Young Drivers of Canada implements this strategy in the course curriculum by providing the Collisionfree!™ Approach.

Through this approach Young Drivers of Canada teaches its students effective seeing habits and how to predict and avoid any potential hazards experienced on a day to day basis when driving. Students are put through situations that can be seen as high risk with their instructors and are taught to identify those risks. More importantly, correction and ultimately better driving skills incorporating the Collisionfree!™ principles are learned for application on the roads for a lifetime.

State-of-the-Art Driver Training at Young Drivers of Canada in Kelowna 

The Collisionfree!™ Approach is delivered through a variety of learning platforms including classroom instruction, one-on-one in-car and video instruction. This varied means of teaching students ensures that students are prepared and given the proper skills to stay collision-free!

Get a Refresher or Extra Preparation for Your Road Test in Kelowna

We also offer in-car packages to help students with any needs they might have. This could be road test preparation, parking, confidence building, defensive driving, emergency maneuvers, and anything else a student isn't feeling comfortable with.

Summer & Winter Driving are Different Experiences - Be Prepared!

We strongly encourage students to take winter driving lessons. Winter in Kelowna is a shorter season than most provinces but this means we get less experience in winter conditions. Let your first time driving down Lakeshore Road on icy roads be with a trained professional and not by yourself! Whatever you are looking for, Young Drivers of Canada in Kelowna can help you!
