Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy for New Drivers
You want driving lessons from the best driving school. As the first program of its kind in Canada, the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy for New Drivers has developed proprietary curriculum based on International research. We discovered the best practices from around the world and designed our programs for the unique requirements of the Canadian market. During their driving lessons, our students learn to take full responsibility for their driving, right from the start. This results in new drivers who are better prepared when they begin to drive solo. Our Graduated Licensing Program courses feature up-to-date curriculum developed as a result of research in the EU called the Hermes Project which has become recognised in BC as the highest standard for training new drivers.
Coaching vs. Instructing
We call our instructors “coaches” for a good reason. There is a significant difference between simple instructing and coaching. With coaching, student drivers are expected to think for themselves. They don’t get constant instruction on when it’s safe to go, reminders to check their mirrors and so on. Our proven methods teach students to take responsibility for decision-making from an early stage. If students learn to depend on a steady stream of instruction, they will not be properly prepared to make their own decisions when they begin to drive without a co-driver watching over them. This is a critical period for new drivers – a time when crashes are most likely to happen. Our coaching methods ensure students are accustomed to making safe decisions independently when they begin to drive on their own.
