Our flexible program will allow you to start a classroom course and immediately allow access to your CogniFit® training program that you can work on at any time, anywhere. We have flexible classroom schedules beginning in specific locations.

Through the Collisionfree!™ Approach, Young Drivers of Canada teaches its students over 20 different driving habits and how to predict and avoid any potential hazards experienced on a day to day basis when driving. Students are put through in-car lessons that can be seen as high risk with their instructors as they are taught to identify those risks. Most importantly, better driving habits are learned for use on the roads for a lifetime.
