Whether you are a brand new driver or looking to exchange your out-of-country driving license, professional driver education is a great idea. You will learn new driving skills which will make you a safer driver and avoid collisions.
An accredited driving school will have a lot of experience with teaching new drivers and drivers who are new to Alberta. They will be able to teach you about defensive driving and driving in winter road conditions. They will be able to prepare you for the basic or advanced driving test (road test). They know about all of the automatic fails and common ways that people lose points on the driving test. They can assess your driving and give you feedback about your driving and whether they think you are ready to take the test.
Hiring a professional driving school is an investment, but it can save you money in the long run:
- Drivers who have formal driving education are less likely to get into an accident.
- Your insurance company may give you a discount if you can show that you completed an Insurance Reduction Certificate.
- You are more likely to pass your Road Test on your first try because the driving instructor will give you top tips and tricks for avoiding automatic fail mistakes and losing points unnecessarily on the Road Test.
