Individual Lessons

This package is designed for G2/G licensed drivers who are interested in learning the proper techniques for automatic transmission driving.

Driving instructors

Learning to drive is one of the single most important skills you will ever learn in your lifetime. If you are an average Canadian, chances are you will drive mostly every day of your life. Depending where you live, you may spend hours a day behind the wheel of a car. With so much of your life spent operating a vehicle, make sure you take the time to really become a skilled driver. When learning to drive, choosing a good driving school is key. And the key to a good driving school is their Instructors. Studies show that student drivers learn better when they are taught driving with a mentoring approach rather than the traditional “dictator” style of instruction taught by outdated driving schools. Furthermore, it is paramount that the driving schools you consider have licensed, knowledgeable, and confident Instructors who can communicate clearly while maintaining patience.

Training Vehicles

The last piece of the A-1 Academy Of Driving puzzle is the vehicles. You would like to think all driving schools in Ontario use vehicles that are equipped with all the safety features available in today’s technologically advanced society. Unfortunately, most driving schools are more worried about the bottom line and not so much with the safety of their drivers and customers. A quality driving school has well maintained vehicles with dual braking systems, front and side airbags, anti-lock brakes, and stability control systems. More progressive driving schools also use hybrid vehicles to help minimize any environmental concerns.

New Citizents

A-1 Academy of Driving offers courses designed specifically for new Canadian citizens. Whether you already have a license from your country of origin or require recertification, A-1 Academy of Driving has a driver training program for you.

Drivers training helps you do just that get behind the wheel. Our patient, understanding and experienced Instructors will be right next to you to help you gain the confidence and knowledge you need to pass the driver’s test, and more importantly help you learn the skills to be a safe driver.
