Mission Statement

Our mission at Durham Driving Academy is to help make Canadian roads safer by teaching new drivers the skills and techniques of safe and enjoyable lifetime driving. Using the latest techniques, educational content, and research, we offer training far beyond what is required to obtain a driver’s license. We do all this by encouraging drivers to anti-distracted driving by not texting and talking on a cell phone. Every week we run small campaigns in school for anti-distracted driving such as eyes on the road, highway safety, and emergency maneuvering to name a few.

Online classes have begun at all locations.
