Defensive Driving Techniques Increase Confidence at our Thunder Bay Driving School 

Young Drivers of Canada Thunder Bay location have driving instructors that understand the difficulties that you will face while driving in Thunder Bay. Our defensive driving school will prepare you for everything that you need to know such as parallel parking, 3-point turns, hill parking, traffic, congestion, roundabouts, highway and expressway driving. We will teach you how to drive with safe driving practices to provide you with the confidence to drive defensively and pass your road test. We will teach you to drive safely and confidently using our CollisionFree approach to driving. Only YD teaches new drivers to drive by using the 4 habits and 20 sub-habits to see all potential dangers on the road and reduce the risk of collisions. Our drivers education program can assist you in passing your road test to get your driver’s license. As Canada's top driving school, we believe that your driving lessons have to include defensive driving maneuvers and techniques to keep you in control of your car at all times. Only Young Drivers driving instructors are specifically trained to teach:

  • Risk perception
  • Gravel shoulder recovery
  • Head-on collision avoidance
  • Threshold/ABS braking
  • Emergency braking
  • Brake and avoid techniques
  • Rear crash avoidance

Your lessons will progress based on your ability and skills. What we do is called competency-based education. Does it make sense to throw you in the deep end of the pool if you have never been in the water before? Would it make sense to put you on the highway and make you go downtown on your first driving lesson if you have never driven a car before? At Young Drivers we will:

  • We start you in a parking lot 
    • show you how all of the controls work in the car such as how to set up your mirrors properly, where the blind spots are in the car, etc.
    • backing and steering exercises to make sure you know how to control the car
    • hand over hand exercises to make sure you know how to steer properly
    • creeping exercises to teach you how to control the speed of your car for 3-point turns, parallel parks, etc.
  • Then progress to side streets when you are ready/comfortable
    • right- and left-hand turns
    • right of way at intersections
    • curb judgement
  • Then we progress to busier roads and one-way streets
  • Highway driving
  • Downtown driving

We space the lessons out so that you can get practice in between each lesson since practice is how you get good at any skill. This reinforces what we teach. Practice is vital to success whether it is hockey, piano, soccer or driving.

G1 license holders will be eligible to take their road test in 8 months instead of 12 months upon successful completion of the Young Drivers of Canada program.
