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.

New Citizens – Driver Training

New Citizen Driver Training at Drivewise London

If you are a new Canadian citizen or a new resident, learning the rules of the road and how to drive in your new country can feel intimidating. New immigrants to Canada already have a lot of things on their mind and finding a qualified driving school shouldn’t be one of them. At London Ontario’s DriveWise driving school, our experienced instructors will give you the driving lessons that you need to drive safely in Ontario and pass your G1 exit road test to obtain your G2 license.


We have specialized courses that are targeted to meet the unique needs of new residents to Canada. If you already have a driver’s license from your country of origin, DriveWise has a driver training program for you to familiarize you with Canadian driving laws and more specifically, the laws that are specific to Ontario.
