Course Overview

This basic driving course will prepare you for your Class 5 road test.  It includes fifteen hours of classroom time and ten hours of driving time.  Classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays in the office from 10:00am until 3:30pm.  They are split into three 5 hour sessions.  Driving time consists of five 2 hour lessons that can be booked anytime Monday to Saturday between 8:00am and 8:00pm.  Upon successfully completing the course, a certificate of insurance will be issued.

We gear the instruction in our defensive driving course towards:

  • New drivers who need it for employment reasons
  • Drivers who would just like to be safer on the road
  • Drivers needing a demerit reduction course.

Ultimately, a driving demerit reduction of 3 points is provided when students successfully pass our defensive driving course.
