Best Driving School For You
There are 5 types of driving schools. You can know which school you are talking to by the emphasis in their sales pitch.
1. Earn a certificate
“Come to our driving school and get a certificate. You can get your “G2” in 8 months instead of a year. You can get a better rate on your insurance.” All licensed driving schools offer this feature. They haven’t even claimed that they can teach you how to drive. EXTRA MILE Driving School has now retrained hundreds of students from other driving schools in this category.
2. Pass a driving test
“Drive Test Experts” is their slogan. They take you to a drive test centre and you repeat the road test for 10 hours of in-car instruction. You can pass a road test but you still cannot drive well beyond that. EXTRA MILE Driving School has now helped a good number of G2 licensed students from other driving schools in this category.
3. Be confident
“Be a confident driver.” The instructors emphasize praise. They never tell you that you are doing anything wrong. “Good job. You’re a nice person. I like your driving. Fantastic” No matter how poor the driving actually is. Do we really need poor drivers on the road feeling confident about their driving? They can’t pass a road test on repeated tries even though they think they are good drivers from another driving school. EXTRA MILE Driving School has now showed dozens of students in this category what they’re doing wrong and how to do it right.
4. Avoid collisions
“New drivers have more collisions than experienced drivers.” Is it sufficient that avoiding collisions means you are driving well?
For example: A driver leaves a store to go home: He backs up without looking, palms the wheel, disregards pavement markings, stops over the sidewalk, doesn’t signal, passes too closely to parked cars without slowing down, changes lanes without warning or shoulder checking, races yellow lights, doesn’t stop or look when turning right on a red light, pulls into an up-hill driveway without setting the parking brake, realizes that he didn’t turn his headlights on and it is after sunset.
He did not have a collision thus he regards himself as a good driver. Is he? EXTRA MILE Driving School has served a countless number of G1, G2 and G licensed students in this category.
5. Drive well for life
EXTRA MILE Driving School focuses on helping you drive well for life. Avoiding a collision albeit important is only one part of driving well. Confidence is not a primary focus of EXTRA MILE Driving School. It is a by-product, a result of learning how to drive well. If you know how to drive well, you’ll easily pass a driving test. You’ll be able to impress any examiner at any location. A good number of EXTRA MILE Driving School students have reported passing the Ministry of Transport road tests with perfect marks. And above all of that, as an extra perk, you get a record on your Drivers License History that is recognized by the Ministry of Transport and the Insurance Industry that you have successfully completed our course. Wow! With our emphasis on driving well for life, you actually get it all.
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.
