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

    We’re established. Our Calgary driving school has been here a long time, since 1970.  We know what we’re doing.

    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 paperwork 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.

    In our driving school, the classroom teachers and instruction are interesting.  We make the driver’s ed class go by fast and enjoyable while you learn everything you need to know. We have enjoyable multi-media instruction.  You’ll know so much from our driving school and our in-vehicle driving lessons, and you’ll pass your road tests easily.  They are experts on what you’ll face on the road tests and all the streets in Calgary. Since the classroom experience is varied, you won’t be bored as in most driving lessons.  You’ll enjoy yourself.

    We like to stand out from the crowd. What makes us better than other Calgary driving schools? We have an online driving course. Do you want to get your class 5 driver’s license but don’t have time to go to driving school? We understand that life gets busy! It can be very hard to spend your Saturdays in a Calgary driving school class. We offer an alternative to what most Calgary driving schools offer. That’s why we have created our online driving school course. Register today to join the driving school Calgary loves!

    I strongly suggest that all new drivers looking to get there drivers license should go here! The instructors are great here, the explain driving techniques and will show you for better understanding if needed. If you have a question they will answer and explain why that would or would not be. They help me with learning new techniques for parking that I was struggling with. They are very nice, fun, and DO not make the driving stressful while you are driving with the instructors. 5 stares and 100% would use this academy again for something like a licenses upgrade.
