Well Designed and Effective Program
ONLY Young Drivers Teaches the Collisionfree!™ Approach We have invested over two million dollars developing the copyrighted Young Drivers of Canada Collisionfree!™ Approach. Only YD offers our exclusive Habits and Sub-Habits that teach YD students the skills they need to stay collision-free.
At Young Drivers of Canada our education experts update the YD Program every year. Driver distraction and increased traffic congestion are just a few of the changes in the driving scene in the last few years. We teach YD students the skills they need to meet the challenges of driving on today's roads.
CogniFit - exclusive to Young Drivers of Canada
Only at Young Drivers will your family member receive CogniFit New Driver cognitive training that can improve short-term memory, divided attention, reaction time, changing plans and speed of judgement. These improved cognitive skills will make passing a driver's test more likely and give them a much better chance of avoiding collisions. Statistically every driver crashes within 20 years but many of those properly trained never crash which means other drivers have multiple crashes.
Integrated Program: In-Class and In-Vehicle
At Young Drivers we ensure continuity between the theory portion of the program taught in a classroom setting and the in-car portion of our program. What our students learn in the classroom is what they practise in the car. Our in-class instructors teach skills like freeway/highway driving, head-on collision avoidance, gravel shoulder drop-off, rear crash avoidance - just to name a few. The YD in-car instructors demonstrate these life-saving techniques. Then YD students have the opportunity to practice these skills with a professional by their side. That means when it happens for real - they'll know what to do!
Responsible and Ecological
Young Drivers is recognized by Natural Resources Canada as an Auto$mart Registered Driving School. Learn how to drive safely, save money and protect the environment by using fuel-efficient driving techniques!
Students Learn at their Own Pace
All students are taught the Habits and Sub-Habits of the Young Drivers of Canada Collisionfree!™ Approach. Our competency based learning system allows students learn at their own pace. Students are evaluated on each of the techniques taught using a 1 - 10 scale. This means they know what to practice and can develop new skills at their own pace.
YD Students Learn How to Stay Collision-Free
We know that traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for Canadians under the age of 25. That's why we teach the Collisionfree!™ Approach. Statistics show that more than 90% of collisions are caused by driver error. The 4 YD Habits and 20 Sub-Habits show our students how to watch out for other drivers errors - mistakes that often result in collisions that could have been prevented.
Quality Assurance - ISO9001:2008
Our Head Office constantly monitors the quality of the Program we offer through four levels of quality control. Young Drivers of Canada is the ONLY ISO9001:2008 registered driving program in Canada. That means we deliver what we promise!
YD Emergency Maneuvers - Exclusive to Young Drivers
ONLY Young Drivers teaches our copyrighted emergency maneuvers:
Rear Crash Avoidance; Emergency Braking; Emergency Swerving Techniques; Head-on Collision Avoidance - those are just some of the life saving techniques YD students are taught.
Under Graduated Licensing regulations a novice driver can only drive on the highway and freeway when accompanied by a licensed instructor. YD students are taught the correct way to merge and exit these busy roadways.
YD Instructors are Re-certified Annually
We know the importance of continuous learning. That's why our in-class and in-car instructors are re-certified on an annual basis to ensure their knowledge is current and their skills are at the high level our customers have come to expect.
We Make Sure Our Students Are Ready for the Road
Every YD student must pass two in-class tests and two in-car evaluations to make certain they are ready to drive on their own. In the car students will be evaluated on their defensive driving skills. Also with the YD simulated road test, we help YD students get ready for the real thing thus increasing their chances of passing their road test the first time.
