Our Instructors

As voted by you via Norkfolk News, Drivewise Simcoe has the best driving instructors in the area. Our in-car instructors hold some of the highest teaching credentials. They continually work on upgrading and re-evaluating their skills. One-on-One in-car Sessions: Students receive hands-on, individualized attention; they are never placed in a car with other students. 

In-Class Training

"I like the Bravo learning games and answering the questions using the clickers. My in-class instructor was funny and nice. The classroom was clean and comfortable."

The Safe Start program is one of the most advanced curriculums in the country. Students use remote clickers to answer questions both cooperatively and individually. This state-of-the-art program uses knowledge-based questions and quizzes that are disguised as games, keeping the learning fun and interesting. This modern learning program updates the in-class instructor with each and every student's marks in real-time. If there are any issues, the instructor will receive a notification and can discuss it with the student privately. 

"Jim made the in-class portion fun, interesting, and easy to understand."

Classes are held at Fanshawe College in Simcoe, 634 Ireland Road, ON, CA

Homelink: Online Training

"The online portion of the course was simple and very effective!"

Homelink is designed to further reinforce the theories learned in the classroom. This independent studying can be completed at the student's own pace. Homelink gives the student their scores in real-time and allows them to retake any quiz. Homelink not only works as a refresher to what was learned in the classroom but also assists students to further develop independent thought when it comes to making important decisions while behind the wheel.

In-Car Training

"My in-car driving instructor was excellent. She was very thorough when explaining rules of the road, she was also very calm and encouraging. She scheduled my lessons in a way that accommodated my schedule."

Once the classroom portion is complete, students are assigned a driving instructor of their choosing. Personalized in-vehicle lessons are created to expand the student’s knowledge. Our instructors' top priority is preparing each and every student for a lifetime of safe driving. Students and parents can feel confident while training in-car. Drivewise instructors have decades of instructional experience. Students are being trained by some of the most qualified instructors in the country. Drivewise vehicles are all maintained to the highest level.
