Knowing how to drive is a very useful thing, and it allows you to have the freedom to go where you want and whenever you want to. Depending on cabs or public transport is not very convenient especially if you are out late or if it is cold and wet. But to be able to drive you need to go to a driving school where you are taught the rules as well as how to drive. When you finish the course you have to complete a driving test. In Calgary there are a few good schools that train their students well to become competent and confident drivers. These schools use the latest teaching methods as well as interactive sessions in the classroom. This helps the students to learn faster but in no way do they compromise on the quality of the drivers that come on to the roads.
The instructors are experienced and have the patience to teach young and restless teenagers or the more cautious older learners. Make sure to choose a school that is certified and offers pickup and drop. Some schools offer mock tests that are free, before the actual driving test. In Calgary there are a few government approved driving schools and the certificates that they give are recognised by the insurance industry. In Calgary, driving tests have to be booked by the learner as they have to provide personal details. The school allows them to use their car though for the test. Anyone above the age of 16 holding a Class 7 learner’s permit for at least a year can do the test.
