Our goal is to teach you how to drive well for many years to come. This means we go beyond just helping you have a driver’s license, beyond just passing a MTO road test, beyond just avoiding collisions, beyond just feeling confident, and beyond a record of successful completion on your Drivers License History. You will learn a quality of driving that is unsurpassed.

We have a virtual reality, kinaesthetically correct, simulator as part of our program to aid our high standards of quality driving. In the car, we don’t put you into dangerous situations on purpose. However, on the simulator, we do. So you get a full range of driving experiences.

Extra Mile Instructors

With our curriculum of Class, Simulator, and Car, you will, by far, get the best beginners driving course in Eastern Ontario.

  • Our 20 hours of dynamic interactive in-class focuses on attitude
  • Our 35 simulation scenerios focuses on anticipation
  • Our 10 hours of automatic or 12 hours of manual in-car lessons focuses on technique

Our In-class instructors are fantastic. They have a sincere interest in helping you learn how to drive and understand each point as needed. In the in-class you will be surprisingly more attentive than expected and you will learn far more than expected.

Our virtual reality, kinaesthetically correct simulator is the first of its kind in Canada. Virtually reality goggles present a 360º Panoramic view of the road. You drive, look for, and respond to danger the same way, as you do in a real car.

Our In-car instructors work 1-on-1 and they go to your home, work, or school, for pick-up and drop-off. They work beyond trying to get you to just pass a road test. For example, you don’t just learn a good-enough three-point turn. You learn the best three-point turn there is. You learn a quality of driving that is truly exceptional.

We have been incorporated since 2003. We are proud of our school, our courses, our locations, Carleton Place, Arnprior, and Stittsville, our staff, and of course our customers.

We provide a Ministry of Transport Approved Beginner Driver Education Course. Upon successful completion you receive a record of such on your Drivers License History that is recognized by the Insurance Industry and the Ministry of Transport.

The success rate for you to pass the MTO test on the first try after taking our course is phenomenally high.

The testimonials of all our students are extremely positive. The testimonials of the families of our students are incredibly positive as well. We are comfortable that when you become and alumni of EXTRA MILE Driving School you will speak positively about our school as well.

Thank you to all of the students who have attended our school to date. We look forward to seeing you driving safely in the future.



EXTRA MILE came all the way to White Lake to serve my son. This convenience was excellent.

I came to your school because my friend went to your school and she’s a very good driver.

I heard good things about your school. You come highly recommended.

I like the philosophy of your school.

I got a perfect mark on my road test. The simulator was awesome; it didn’t feel anything like a typical video game. When I turned my head there was still traffic around me. The difficult scenarios on the simulator are still vivid in my mind.

I’m more aware of what might happen when I’m driving.

My wife went to EXTRA MILE thinking the in-class was going to be boring. After each class, she was anxious to tell me what exciting things she has learned.

My daughter learned 3 ways to parallel park.

Before I went, I wondered what could possibly be taught about driving in a classroom for 4 days? Wow! I didn’t realize there was so much to learn.

The instructor kept it interesting the whole time.

At the end of each In-car lesson, we got in the car with my son and got him to teach us what he had just learned.We were totally impressed and told him to thank the In-car instructor.

My son started EXTRA MILE, he corrects me on my driving. I'm pleased with what he has learned and his earnest to apply it.

The instructor had a sincere interest in having my daughter learn. He made her learn and she had fun learning it.He’s funny, amusing, and keeps things interesting. He’s very entertaining.

After just two in-car lessons, I let my daughter drive herself to school.Wow! I wasn't freaking hysterically at her like I did before her lessons.

I got my money’s worth and more. Fantastic course.

My son has already been driving with his G1 for a year and I thought that there was nothing more to teach him. I just sent him to get the insurance certificate. At the end of his first In-car lesson he came into the house telling me about all of this stuff he had learned.

Should be the one used in the schools.
