At KDSC “Safety is everything”
Learn from the best at affordable rates
Kelowna & District Safety Council – KDSC – is a non-profit organization, which means that for us safety is not just a business but instead our mission and passion. Since 1980, generations of riders and drivers have taken lessons with us, not only learning how to get a license, but gaining the essential skills needed for life-long safety and enjoyment. Also, because we are a non-profit, our fees do not include taxes, which means that you save money while you learn from the best, most experienced, and most committed instructors in the Okanagan region. Even if you are already riding a motorcycle or driving a car, our instructors can help you improve your skills and safety.
In addition to motorcycle and driver training, KDSC also offers a variety of programs promoting children’s safety skills – from babysitting to first aid, home-alone and bicycle safety, and more. If you’re a parent, check out our schedule and book now – your children will be safer for it.
Thanks to the City of Kelowna, this year we are able to provide driver training subsidies (50-100%) to low income seniors, immigrants & refugees as well as GLP students, and for children’s safety training courses!

My whole family did the Learn To Ride course and loved it. My parents also did the Advanced Riding course. They highly recommended KDSC. KDSC provided the bikes and all the gear which was awesome!
All wonderful instructors. Very knowledgeable and experienced. I felt very safe riding with them and now will feel safe on the road when I ride my bike! Thank-you so much!
The variety of bikes supplied. Only course that offered close to what I ride. Heard many good things about the course.
Everyone I spoke with (friends, dealerships) highly recommended this course!
My son took this course. Always talks about how good it was.
Seemed like the standard “go-to” which prompted a call and the staff were very accommodating for my schedule which enabled me to do this.
The instructors are first rate, they have my utmost respect. Very positive but objective in their comments and suggestions. Thank you!
...the riding skills I learned here may well save my life some day, good job KDSC
Good reputation. Easy for new riders to come in and learn because all the gear and motorcycles are provided. ICBC accredited and able to complete MSA within the course/program.
Proximity, quality and current up to date equipment and bikes. Friendly and cheerful initial greeting and overview of the program on initial approach.
Clear, concise, knowledgeable instructors. Very adaptable to new students with very little riding history. Best thing I ever did going forward with my riding skills.
I spoke with many different people (strangers and friends), most people recommended KDSC… Friends have taken the course as as two years ago to as long as 10 years ago and 100% of them loved it. Hence my decision to invest my time/money into KDSC.
Awesome experience! I learned A LOT. I think it should be mandatory for everyone to take. The instructors are awesome – Duane, Peter, Bruce. Love ya guys!
Seemed the most reputable. Weekend schedule was a BIG plus. Good selection of bikes and lending of gear. Felt like I could do the course without any previous riding experience. Ability to do the ICBC MSC test.
Pace was excellent, directions were clear, advise was given in a friendly respectful manner and knowledge was very useful and delivered effectively.
Preferred course dates, recommended by other riders, more thorough than other courses, and ability to customize instructions.
