Driver Training for New Canadian Residents

For those that have recently immigrated to Nova Scotia – we welcome you! If you were a licensed motorist in your previous country of residence, it may be necessary for you to obtain a Class 5 Driver’s Licence in order to take advantage of the sites and destinations Nova Scotia has to offer. We can help you learn the rules of the road, such as recognizing road signs, as well as handling Nova Scotia’s roads during severe weather.
