The Young Drivers of Canada Course is a beginner driver education course available in select provinces. Aimed at helping new drivers learn the skills needed to successfully pass their driver’s test and stay safe on the roads for a lifetime.

This program has two components: a virtual with live teacher learning and in-car lessons.

Driving lessons are conducted in-person, with a highly trained driving instructor. All in-car lessons are one instructor to one student.

The online learning modules are designed to help new drivers think like experienced drivers able to identify the problems and solutions needed to avoid each type of collision. It’s a way of thinking, presented through animations, text, images and videos that will become habitual over the course of this program.

The driving lessons are private, one-on-one in-car lessons provided by provincially approved, annually re-certified instructors. Throughout the course, each student will learn how collisions happen and how to prevent them.

What You’ll Learn

  • Risk perception
  • Gravel shoulder recovery
  • Threshold/ABS braking
  • Rear-crash avoidance
  • Head-on collision avoidance
  • Emergency braking
  • Brake and avoid techniques
  • Swerving techniques
  • Freeway driving

Dates and times vary depending on location. New classes starting weekly.

I put my older son through Young Driver's and my younger son through Kruzee. Young Driver's was terrible. The class scheduling is inflexible and it was nearly impossible to schedule the in car training. The teacher would cancel at the last minute.

Kruzee's scheduling was all online and very easy to do. It was also 1/3 of the price of Young Driver's

Also, insurance didn't distinguish between the two.

Kruzee is 300% better than Young Driver's and 1/3 the price.

I took Young Drivers. From what I hear from others who took lessons elsewhere there are some key differences. The big one that I remember is emergency maneuvers.
The instructors spend a lengthy lesson doing things like emergency braking and avoidance. They set up pylons in an empty parking lot and have you do things like drive towards them, and get up to 50km/hr. or so then they turn off the car so you have to avoid using no power steering. Another you had to avoid the pylons using only the emergency brake. Another you had to react to a coming rear and collision. High-speed braking was another.
I was fortunate to do that lesson the day after an ice and snowstorm, so I had tougher conditions. It taught me things I still remember every winter.
To me, it was worth the money. The best thing to do is get a complete breakdown of what you’re paying for. If all you want is to pass your test you can cheap out a bit, but if you want something more comprehensive consider it money well spent.
