WELCOME TO NEW DIRECTIONS DRIVING SCHOOL
A Ministry of Transportation (MTO) Approved Beginner Driver Education (BDE) program provider (MTO approved schools).
New Directions Driving School - Serving Pembroke, Cobden, Renfrew and Surrounding Areas.
Our main focus at New Directions is providing new drivers the opportunity to gain the practical knowledge and skills needed to drive safely, from friendly, dedicated and professional instructors, in a learning environment they enjoy. "The road to practical driving skills starts here!"
We are proud to provide our BDE training services to students throughout Central Renfrew County from our convenient location at 46 Main Street in Cobden, Ontario.
We run courses monthly throughout the year at our Cobden location. Our MTO approved BDE program begins with 20 hours in-class plus homelinks, done over 4 days consecutively or over 2 full weekends. Course completion also requires 10 hours of one on one in-vehicle instruction scheduled between student and instructor. Generally, we attempt to drive for 2 hours per lesson to limit the number of times we interrupt your life. These 2 hour sessions also provide ample opportunity to practice manoeuvres, city driving and some highway driving during each outing, thereby giving the student a well rounded experience each time they drive. The schedule is always flexible and we do our best to accommodate the needs of our students.
