Course Description

A growing city and populace demands an increasing awareness towards how to operate vehicles safely in varied road conditions and in heavy traffic. DTC’s focus is to not just help our students pass a road test, but most importantly become safe drivers and expose the student to a variety of situations throughout their lessons.

We have found through past experience that while teaching additional hours and providing emergency manoeuvres in a special off road course may give students an idea of how to handle the car in certain situations, the best driving education is to consistently experience realistic situations on Calgary roads. This best prepares students and builds their confidence. Learning to react in real life situations is extremely important.

Full Government Approved Course

  • Free pick up and drop off for in-car lessons

  • Course completion certificate for insurance reduction
  • This course is also provided at some High Schools.
  • The Government guidelines for 15 hours in-class and 10 hours in-car are sufficient to give students an overall training behind the wheel. We give an honest assessment of the student’s driving abilities without charging you more. If parents or students feel they would like additional hours we offer that option without pressure.
