Young Drivers St. John's Driving School

The Best Driver Training In Newfoundland

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! At Young Drivers of Canada, our course is government approved for graduated licensing. That means you get a four-month reduction -- rather than waiting twelve months from the date of issue of your permit to attempt your road test, you can attempt at eight months or any time thereafter when ready.

A Driving Experience That Will Last You A Lifetime

We offer basic, intermediate and advanced packages for both for all types of drivers. Looking for just a few lessons? We offer private one-on-one instruction in our vehicle. We can help you pass your road test the first time! Insurance discounts apply to YD graduates! When you complete our course, you will receive a Young Drivers certificate. Just take that to your insurance company and enjoy the benefits of having received a great driving education.
