Young Drivers Saint John Driving School

The Best Driving School in Saint John

Young Drivers of Canada has a philosophy when it comes to collisions, that accidents are predictable and preventable. What this translates to is that the majority of the consequences of any crash can be avoided, including fatalities, injuries and specifically, insurance claims. Young Drivers of Canada implements this strategy in their course curriculum by providing their Collisionfree™ Approach to their driving program.

Through this approach, Young Drivers of Canada teaches its students effective seeing habits and how to predict and avoid any potential hazards experienced on a day to day basis when driving. Students are put through situations that can be seen as high risk with their instructors and are taught to identify those risks. More importantly, correction and ultimately better driving skills incorporating the principles are learned for application on the roads for a lifetime. 

Young Drivers Will Teach You to See, React, Avoid and Escape

Our Saint John streets and highways are in use twenty-four hours a day. The volume of traffic can sometimes be overwhelming and the presence of many other vehicles increases the risk of a collision. Once you have learned to handle the vehicle, to operate the controls and to maneuver smoothly, the task of "learning to drive" has only just begun. By using the Young Drivers Collisionfree!™ Approach you will learn where to look, how to recognize the warning signs of impending danger, and how to plan your moves to avoid hazards. You will also learn how to position your vehicle in traffic so you always have an escape route available.
