At the DriveWise driving school in London Ontario, our goal is to teach students to be safe and confident drivers. We prepare our students for their G2 and G drive tests with a diverse learning approach that includes interactive in-class learning, in-car lessons and sessions with our driving simulator. Our approach to driving lessons is what sets us apart from the competition. We also have a state of the art driving simulator that simulates real driving hazards, including simulating the dangers of drinking & driving and texting & driving. Our SafeStart Beginner Driver Education programs are Ministry of Transportation approved and recognized by the insurance industry. Our students include beginner drivers, international students, new residents, new immigrants, and senior citizens who want to practice their driving skills. We teach our students cooperative driving strategies during in-car lessons. Using our driving simulator, we also teach students defensive driving strategies like how to control skids and driving in winter conditions. When it’s time for you to take your Ontario drive test, you’ll feel confident in your driving skills and happy with your driving school experience at DriveWise.


About SafeStart – DriveWise London


Why Choose DriveWise?

DriveWise is the perfect option for new drivers in today’s world. DriveWise is the only company in Canada to offer the SafeStart driving program, a program which is changing the way beginners are learning to drive. We’re proud to offer our students many different teaching tools and techniques as they learn to drive and prepare for their drive tests. 

  • Our state-of-the-art virtual reality simulator lets our students build their confidence and familiarize themselves with the rules of the road in a safe environment. They’ll be able to safely make mistakes and learn how to deal with tough driving situations before driving a real car
  • We know that interactive lectures are far more effective than a traditional classroom setting which is why we use this approach in all of our DriveWise driving courses. Our instructors use a Classroom Performance System which allows them to monitor student progress in real-time and to even mentor them along the way. Students use audience response systems to answer quiz questions and test their own learning in a way that is fun and informative
  • One of the most important components about learning how to drive are the one-on-one in car sessions. These sessions allow our instructors to give students unique and individualized instruction and attention; and they will never be placed in a car with other students

SafeStart is an MTO-approved BDE course which means we are an approved beginner driver education course in the provinces of Ontario, New Brunswick, Alberta and British Columbia. We’re also recognized by the insurance industry.
