Hundreds of Satisfied Customers

Highly recommended for those who want to be a professional driving instructor. The classroom teacher, Scott, is also the owner. He had a lot of experience on the road including AZ driving and teaching students of different backgrounds. Atmosphere in the classroom is casual but contents are rich. In car instructors are from local community. Some of them are strict, some like chatting. But all are professional.

Google Review

I took the driver instructor’s course with “Professional Driving Instructors of Ontario” at their newly opened location in Brampton Ontario in September 2019. I am a very satisfied student with the end results of their method of teaching. They are professional and friendly, and I know that I got the best for my money. Their standard of teaching this course stand out from the rest, the findings are of such, we were given four Instructors to teach the class safe driving technique on the roadway, every student in the class got a chance to be taught by the different Instructors, hence a variety of teaching which is better than one teacher. I have heard that no other driving school has done this practice, usually only one Instructor would teach the entire class to drive. My advise to those who would like to become a driving Instructor, check them out first. (PDIO)
