Victoria Driving School Offer Collisionfree! Approach Driving Lessons

Victoria Driving SchoolYoung Drivers of Canada is pleased to announce the opening of two new Victoria driving schools.  The first classroom is now open in the Cedar Hill Mall in Saanich, and the second is in the Westhills Arena in Langford. These openings mark the 23rd and 24th Young Drivers driving schools in BC.  YD has been providing its proprietary defensive driving in the Victoria area for over 40 years.

“In order to serve our clients better, Young Drivers has left the downtown core and opened a new Saanich classroom near the intersection of Cedar Hill Crossroad and Shelbourne Road.  Access to our Collisionfree!™ Approach is now more convenient for Victoria families.  We are proud to also be in Langford and servicing most of the Capital Regional District Victoria. Our goal is to bring Young Drivers’ state-of-the-art ICBC approved driver education courses to drivers of all ages and skill levels in these BC communities.,” said Peter Christianson, President of Young Drivers of Canada.

The VVictoria driving schoolictoria office and classroom is located at 1551 Cedar Hill Cross Rd., Suite 103 on the ground floor of the Cedar Hill Mall. Students are welcomed into bright, clean classrooms. The new suite has plenty of free parking and is fully wheelchair accessible.

The second classroom is at 1089 Langford Parkway and services the Westshore communities with in-vehicle driving lessons.  This Langford location is in the newly upgraded boardroom facility of the Westhills Arena.

In celebration of both YD classroom openings, these new driving school locations are launching a special Young Drivers Fall Friends promotion. Bring a friend and receive a $25 discount off the price of a full YD Program for you and a friend when you sign up for the same course date in October and November 2013.

The novice course consists of 20 hours of dynamic and interactive classroom education, as well as 12 hours of in-car training.  Avoiding rear crashes and head-on collisions are among the subjects taught.  This program is an ICBC Approved Graduated Licensing Program (GLP) Course and qualifies graduates for 2 High School Credits and to take the Class 5 Road Test 6 months early. High school students are tax exempt.  There are additional driving programs offered including Class 5 and Class 7 road test prep lessons, road test packages, individual 90 minute lessons for those who are looking to brush up on their skills and more.  Payment plan options are available.
