Parents

Dear accompanying driver,

We here at driverzed.com believe that driving is a life skill, and that one can become a better driver with practice and experience. We encourage family members to take out a beginner driver for 15-20 minutes a few times a week. This will help them to gain experience and confidence, which encourages a safe driving future. Many people are often afraid to take out new drivers because of the possibility of a collision. Here are some helpful tips.

  • Keep practicing short and brief. No more than 30 minutes

  • Wear running shoes

  • Make sure the driver is well rested.

  • Choose a quiet time of the day, i.e. mid-morning and late evening on a weekday, or mornings on the weekend (Sunday morning the roads are empty)

  • The ideal residential areas to start off a beginner driver include: old north, old south, and Byron (the residential area behind Tim Horton’s). There are a lot of stop signs and perfect to practise turns

  • Always teach how making a left turn first in the residential areas (no fear of curb)

  • Start off in an empty parking lot (encourage them not to drive on the lines), and then move on to residential streets

  • Encourage the beginner driver with positive feedback

  • DON’T YELL. Yelling at the beginner driver will only cause them to panic, get more nervous and could compound to additional mistakes. Use a calm voice and avoid leisurely conversation

  • Give them instruction well in advance; talk to them about what they see up ahead in the distance, and what they should do as a result

  • When instructing them to turn, DON’T say Next Street; tell them 1st street coming up…… (It’s clearer)

  • Encourage the driver to look ahead at their intended path of travel and not to look at the curb or line

Our course is a MTO certified Drivers Education Course. It is made up different components, the first portion or the course is 20 hour’s in class theory. These 20 hours are split up between different classes. During these classes your child will be given a Student Workbook to work through in class. The final portion of the course consists of 10 hours of in car training. This is where they will be one-on-one with one of our qualified Driving Instructors learns the hands on portion of the course and these lessons are scheduled based on your child’s schedule. The only portion of our course that is predetermined is the classroom portion.

Students will have 1 YEAR from their course start date to finish ALL components of the course. That’s the 20 hours of in class and the 10 hours of in car training. We also require full payment, a photo copy of your child’s driver’s license and a portion of the workbook that will be taken from class before they can be certified. Once all necessary components are complete we will certify your child with the Ministry of Transportation. If your child goes over their 1 YEAR mark they can no longer be certified.

The certification that they will receive if they successfully complete all areas of the course will make them eligible for maximum insurance discounts. These discounts are based on your insurance company and we have no knowledge of what they may be. The documentation that you will need to prove the completion of our course is a DRIVER LICENCE HISTORY REPORT. You can obtain this from any Service Ontario location; the cost for this is $12.00. As of 2008 the Ministry of Transportation no longer allows us to issue Certificates.

 Should you have any further questions or concerns you can contact us at anytime and we would be happy to help!
