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.


Hands-On Training


THE DRIVEWISE DIFFERENCE

DriveWise’s blended learning approach sets us apart from all other driving schools. The use of simulation allows our instructors to coach young drivers through situations that simply cannot be duplicated in a vehicle. Here are some examples of what this approach can teach that in-vehicle and classroom teaching alone cannot:

✔A= Advanced hands on training via simulation to enhance in car training
✔B= Basic training via in car (limited to comply with safety constraints)
