I am a certified professional driver trainer, that teaches defensive and advanced driving techniques while preparing learners to be safe road users. Our motto is: Safer Drivers, Safer Roads.


Learners who obtain their driver’s license through our school are safer drivers, more confident and exposed to some advanced training instruction, necessary to navigate hazardous conditions.


We customize training plans.


We do not do offer packages because we believe that each learner is different and learns at a different pace.


We also perform corporate and defensive driver training and driver assessments.
