Courses

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 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.
    Fewer distractions from others in the car

We offer the EXTRA MILE vehicle that you used to learn in, for the Ministry of Transport road tests.

We:

  • Pick you up at a place of your convenience at least 1 hour before the test.
  • Let you use our vehicle on the road test.
  • Stand by as you get your upgraded license if you pass.
  • Chauffeur you back to the place of your convenience.

We've taken students to Arnprior, Westport, Renfrew, Walkley, Canotek Road, Winchester, Casselman, Kemptville, Carleton Place, Smith Falls and Hawksbury testsites. Ideally, the point of pickup should be within a 30-minute drive to the testsite to get the best benefit of this service. Road Test Examiners like using Driving School cars as Driving School cars have a second brake available.

 

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.
