Finding Young Drivers Barrie

Our Barrie classroom is located in suite #1010, 74 Cedar Pointe Dr., Barrie. We're located in the Cedar Pointe Business Park, Building #74 which is the last building on the left when entering from Dunlop St. We are just past the Bell Mobility and Rogers stores. Cedar Pointe Business Park is located at the intersection of Dunlop St. West (also known as Highway 90) and Highway 400. 

When approaching from the South on Highway 400, take exit 96B which is the Dunlop St. West exit. The exit ramp runs under the overpass bridge and circles around leading onto Dunlop St. W. Go over the bridge and turn right at the first stoplight which is Cedar Pointe Dr.  

If you're heading South on Highway 400, take exit #96. The exit ramp leads to a stoplight. Proceed through the light. You will be entering into Cedar Pointe Business Park. Continue along to the last building on the left which is building #74.
