For most new drivers, learning to drive is an exciting time! However, driving can be riskier for novices as they haven’t yet developed the decision making skills or good driving habits that will get them safely to their destination. At the Kelowna & District Safety Council, our goal is to help new drivers gain confidence and develop positive, lifelong driving habits as they gain experience on the road. Includes free pick up/drop-off at school or home within the greater Kelowna area. We are the only non-profit, community based driver training school in the Okanagan. Train with us and learn from the best!
All new drivers train on our school car, a 4-door Toyota Corolla, which is specially modified with dual brake and gas pedals for our students’ safety. Whether you’ve already had some driving experience or you’ve never sat in the driver’s seat before, we’ll customize a training package to suit your needs and your budget.
