Young Drivers Bedford Driving School

The Best Driver Training in Nova Scotia

Our exclusive Collisionfree!™ Approach trains new drivers to anticipate problems well in advance so they can be proactive in their driving so that these problems do not affect them. We are also the only program that teaches emergency manouevers both in class and in car, such as head-on collision avoidance, gravel shoulder recovery and rear-crash avoidance. 

Practice Always Makes Perfect

Since good decision making is critical to avoiding collisions we also have an online program called CogniFit® to help with that. It was developed by a cognitive psychologist to improve mental skills. The results of your cognitive training are used during your ten hours of one-on-one in-car training where you learn how to apply all the theory from the classroom. Your instructor will use your personal YD workbook to give feedback on your progress.

Avoid Collisions With YD Driver Training

We believe that since collisions are predictable, they are fully avoidable. Our driver training courses offered in Bedford are designed to expose you to real-life situations that you may encounter so that if and when it happens to you, you will know what to do. We do not use simulators, but rather show you in the car what you learn in class.
