We do one-on-one in car training and not 3, or 2-on-1.
- Ministry of Transport limits driving instruction to 2-on-1. A driving school offering 3-on-1 in-car service is working outside of their license.
- 10 hours in the car means you have 10 hours behind the wheel – not 30 hours in the car with 20 of them waiting for your turn. Your time is valuable.
- No embarrassment from making mistakes in front of your peers as you are trying to learn
- Fewer distractions from others in the car thus fewer chances for a collision while learning
$888 taxes included. ($785.84 + HST)
