KD Driver Training offers courses and training to both new drivers
and drivers who may have many years of experience. We believe that
driver safety and education can, and should be a life long process to
ensure the safety of the community in which we live.
New Driver Courses
KD Driver Training provides a Ministry of Transportation-Approved Beginner
Driver Education Course. The
course consists of both in-car and classroom components.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be certified with the MTO. Please contact your insurance company for more
information about insurance discounts available to drivers who have completed
the Beginner Driver Education course.
The in-car portion of course consists of at least twelve hours of
mostly one on one instruction - two hours more than what is
required by the Ministry of Transportation. We believe in providing
students with a personalized in-car experience, that is individually
tailored to meet the needs of students with different backgrounds and
learning styles, both teenagers and adults. The students are picked up
from school/home - parents do not have to transport students to
a central pick up area. The in-car portion will
not be completed in less than six weeks - practice time is very important! Students must complete and document 50 hours of driving time beyond lesson time in order to graduate.
Students are free to learn in a non-threatening environment where
learning and safety are the number on priorities and not simply
providing students with the minimum knowledge required to pass the
Ministry of Transportation testing. Our driver education training consists
of both rural and city driving environments. Students will experience
approximately seven hours of local driving, including 401, and approximately five
hours of city driving, including downtown.
The classroom component of our driver education course consists of
twenty-eight hours of instruction, both including and going beyond the
requirements of the Ministry of Transportation. In the classroom
component students learn:
the rules of the road
to share the road and cooperate with other road users
how to recognize and deal with driver distraction
reduction of road rage
other points relating to safe vehicle control in different road and weather conditions
to think through the consequents of their actions and predict the actions of others
Whenever possible guest lecturers in class include an OPP constable and an alcohol- awareness counsellor.
For new drivers that want driving instruction, but do not wish to
take the full course, please see our individualized services section.
Courses are run on a regular basis throughout the year. Check our
course schedule for the next available course.
Courses for Experienced Drivers
For assisting the experienced driver, KD Driver Training offers refresher lessons and driver assessments. We can help drivers who are "city driving shy"
become more comfortable driving in the city.
KD Driver Training offers many customized services. These
services may include in-car, classroom or both services for
individuals or groups/companies.
Services range from basic driving lessons for new drivers that
want instruction but do not wish to participate in the full course,
to lessons for seniors who want a short refresher. KD Driver
Training also offers individual driver assessments.
