Why We’re the Best in Calgary’s Driver’s Education

We’re a real school. Unlike most driving schools in Calgary, ours has classrooms and several cars and trucks for driving lessons. We’re not just a start up in someone’s basement with no expertise or experience. We’ll still be around when you need us for anything, especially for paper work or records for the registry.
Our driving instructors are expert and friendly. Our driving instructors are highly qualified and make you feel relaxed behind the wheel. They help you pass your road test.
Our classroom teachers and instruction are interesting. We make the class go by fast and enjoyable while you learn everything you need to know. We have multi-media instruction. You’ll know so much from our driving lessons, you’ll pass your road tests easily. Since the classroom experience is varied, you won’t be bored as in most driving lessons. You’ll enjoy yourself.

Very worthwhile course. the in-class was very informative, and will help a great deal with insurance. The in-car portion is even more beneficial. I got Nick Scott as my instructor and he did a fantastic job. He made sure I was comfortable and ready for the test.He was sensitive on mistakes, but made sure you would remember as to fix them. As well, he made every lesson fun and shared some great stories while I learned. I would definitely recommend this program.
Took classes here back in '08 and have been driving with a clean record since (minus a couple of parking tickets :p). Great introductory class, great driving teacher, and great driving test instructor. Totally worth the money. Passed my test on my first try, too!

I went to Derek Brown's to help me for my Class 5 Beginner's Road test. The inclass instructors prepare you well for the inclass exam. My driving instructor, Teri, is a great teacher.
