The Driving Lessons

Student Driver with Instructor
  • If you register and pay at least 3 wks before your class - we'll set & confirm your in-car schedule with you before your class session.
  • Students who practice 2 hrs between lessons may complete the in-car training in 2 weeks. We suggest students aim to complete their driver training in 3-4 weeks (but we're flexible).
  • We aim to have students complete a lesson before the classroom session. We also try to have all lessons with the same instructor.

Pre-Test or Brush up Lessons

You can book a "brush up" lesson before your road test, whether you took driving lessons with us or not. Students who completed driver training like to take a "brush up" just before the GDL or full licensing road test. This polishes "best practices" for the road test. Mature adults also take a "brush up" lesson or two before facing a driving test.

Theory Preparation

We provide you the workbooks & reference material needed for our 15 hour in-class session. Our classes usually run for two eight hour days. We normally have at least one classroom session each month, so call 780-458-7288 early to get a spot !

How the driving coach/parent can help

When you register we'll send a learning contract that outlines responsibilities of:

  • the driving student
  • the driving school
  • the driving coach/parent

Review it with the student before they start their lessons. Expect a delay of at least two weeks for driving lessons if you sign up for the online class program.

Once the student is registered, we'll send you resources from Alberta Transportation that reinforces what the driving instructor is teaching.Using the material while practicing with the student between lessons makes for faster learning. It also makes for a much better defensive driver.

Some advice from Mike at Drive Safe Ride Safe about coaching your driving student.

Testimonials from Customers

The instructor I had is really good like I would never ever expected to pass my license for the first time but because he is such a good teacher, I passed it, thank you 🙂 and the office staff are very friendly and nice. The drivers training made me very confident in my driving. The class work was important, but the in-car made me so prepared for my exam.

Thanks for the good work, both of my children are graduates of a Northern Lights program and better drivers for it.

The driver instructor was awesome... he did a great job getting me ready (for my road test). I passed first time. Yay.

The instructor made our daughter's driving experience a real pleasure. She thoroughly enjoyed her time with him. As parents, we really appreciate his patience, knowledge and kind manner. Will be booking our 2nd daughter in next year. Thanks again.

Our son really enjoyed the in-car training and driving and mentioned he would trade a little less class time for more in-car driving instruction. A special thanks to his instructor!

Wonderful experience in class and in car. Great amount of knowledge and training provided that built my confidence as a driver. Will recommend Northern Lights Drivers Training to others.
