Young Drivers Halifax Driving School

Best Driver Training in Nova Scotia

We believe that since collisions are predictable and preventable, they are avoidable. Our exclusive Collisionfree!™ Approach trains new drivers to anticipate problems well in advance, so they can be proactive in their driving. We are the only program that teaches evasive manoeuvers both in-class and in-car (head-on collision avoidance, gravel shoulder recovery and rear crash avoidance etc.) 

Since good decision making is critical to avoiding collisions we also have an online program called CogniFit®, which was developed by a cognitive psychologist to improve mental skills.

Drive To Survive With Defensive Driving Skills

A Young Drivers course is the best insurance you can buy for a new driver. We have spent over 40 years developing our program and we update and improve it annually. For those who don't need a full course, we also offer private in-car sessions.

Rather than just teaching you how to pass the road test, our goal is to keep you alive once you're driving on your own. Once you pass the test you are on your own and that's when the real test begins.
