Young Drivers Dartmouth Driving School
To our Students in the Halifax Regional Municipality:
Effective November 27th and for two weeks, Nova Scotia has stricter COVID-19 measures. As a result, YD classroom courses in HRM have therefore been temporarily postponed. Customers that have already paid for their course will have their payment honored and credited towards the next available start date. We will contact each customer with this information, once finalized. YD is committed to safety on the road through collision-free driving. We ask everyone to please follow the advice of Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and do everything possible to remain healthy during this time.
The Best Driving School in Nova Scotia
Our exclusive Collisionfree! ™ Approach trains new drivers to anticipate problems well in advance they can be proactive in their driving so that these problems do not affect them. 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. Rather than just teaching you how to pass the road test, our goal is to keep you safe and alive once you have your licence. Once you pass the test you're on your own and that's when the real test begins.
Drive To Survive In Any Situation
All of our courses for new drivers have four key components to effectively change driving habits:
- 25 hours of in-class learning where you learn how collisions are caused and how to prevent them
- Online cognitive training to help with decision-making skills
- 10 hours of one-on-one in-car training where you put the classroom learning into action
- Online Co-Driver program to help between in-car sessions with your instructor - the idea behind the Co-Driver program is that if the person you are practising with has a better understanding of what we are teaching to make practice more effective
