Young Drivers Chatham Driving School
The Best Driving School in Canada
Every day we share the road with many other people. Whether they are in cars, on bicycles, in trucks or even in a horse-drawn carriage, each driver has a different experience. As drivers, we must be able to adapt their driving to not just the road conditions but to the various drivers around us.
By using the YD Collisionfree!™ Approach and it's 4 habits and 20 sub-habits, each student can learn how to proactively deal with situations. Remember, the most dangerous thing most of us will do is get into a motor vehicle. Using the YD Collisionfree!™ Approach will greatly lessen that danger for everyone on the road. Young Drivers has taken defensive driving to a whole new level.

This course has been developed in-house using the same great techniques that Young Drivers has been teaching for the last 50 years!
Classroom (Online and In-Person) Updates
- We resumed in-person classes in September however as numbers in Ontario continue to increase, we had concerns about mixing different cohorts in our in-person classes. So as of November 1, 2020, we are only offering our Online Self-Directed Classroom Course.
- We are working on approval for Virtual Classes with a live teacher and we hope to announce that sometime in the spring of 2021.
- Until then, please select and complete your classes online. With every online course, you still get the same YD in-car training as always (see below for more details).
Driving Lesson Updates
- Our Driving lessons have resumed with detailed safety protocols in place. Click here for more details on how we are keeping you and our community safe.
- As you can imagine we have a backlog of several months of driving lessons to deliver. Our instructors are very busy and are now booking in 2021 for driving lessons. If you have a timeline you are trying to make, please talk to one of us at the office to ensure we can make it work, before you sign up.
DriveTest and Road Test Updates
- Currently, Chatham is booking Road Tests in late April 2021. This is a moving target so if checking tests dates in January, the availability could be in May 2021. DriveTest also blocks off all dates from time to time and we are not able to book any tests. As soon as tests are available again, we go in and book them. So please bear with us as we work with DriveTest's availability.
- If your licence is expiring soon or has already expired this year or if you won't be able to finish your Young Drivers course within a year, please do not worry. The Ministry of Transportation has extended all these dates. Click here for FAQ's and information from DriveTest.
NOTE: These updates are as of December 2020. Lesson and Road Test dates are constantly changing so please contact us at 519-351-8305 for the latest information.
