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 a training school classroom and several cars and trucks for driving lessons.  Other schools can sometimes just be a start-up in someone’s basement with no expertise or experience.  Our driving school will still be around when you need us for anything, especially for paperwork or records for the registry.  Training school drivers have what they need for success!

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 training school go by fast and enjoyably while you learn everything you need to know. Our driving school has 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 school classroom training experience is varied, you won’t be bored as in most driving lessons.  You’ll enjoy yourself in our drivers ed.

We like to stand out from the crowd. What makes us better than other Calgary driving schools? We have an online licensed driver training 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 driving school class. We offer an alternative to what most Calgary driving classes offer. That’s why we have created our online driving school course as another option for driving education. Register today to join the driving school Calgary loves! Other schools simply do not compare.

💯I am very glad that I went to Derek Brown's driving school. 1 week after my in-vehicle lessons + everyday practice, I aced my road test and passed it during my 1st try. Im very happy and blessed that Sajid was my mentor/teacher both lecture and in-vehicle road practice. I can really feel his passion and dedication teaching the student drivers. His patience was immeasurable. He's very accurate and precise specially when teaching parking. Im also glad that it snowed during my last in-vehicle lesson I have finally overcame my fear of driving on snow. He gave me realistic and useful lessons when driving on a snowy and slippery road. Big big THANKS to MR. SAJID. 💯 recommend.

Qusay was a fantastic instructor, he taught me how to drive from knowing basically nothing about driving to being road ready in just 4 days. Highly recommend.

As someone who got her learners license quite young but never got behind the wheel due to being afraid of the road, I did not believe that I could become a good driver. My instructor Qusay helped me feel more comfortable driving and I no longer fear the road. He gave me constant reassurance and was very patient with me throughout all of our lessons. His years of experience and ability to direct my through areas I was afraid of gave me the confidence and ability to learn to drive, despite my hesitance.

I was very nervous and I had barely any driving experience before starting. Qusay from the start was very informative and helpful and guided me through the whole process. Amazing driving instructor!

I just passed my class 1 melt program and I am thrilled. Everyone at this school is friendly and accommodating. Dan was very informative in class training had a lot of experiences to share. Sonny was my driving instructor he was very thorough and patient. Pam at the front desk was so patient as well. She’s a super busy gal but she stays on top of everything and was always able to be accommodating with my schedule. Thanks so much for the adventure into new beginnings!

My instructor Qusay is extremely knowledgeable and I learned things from him about driving that I didn't know before. He is very helpful and patient and gives a lot of useful tricks and tips. After 4 classes I feel way more confident about driving than I was at the beginning.
