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 and best practices from around the world that is specifically tailored to the unique requirements of the Canadian market.
Our comprehensive and holistic approach to driver training focuses on a broad range of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and risk factors to fully prepare students for the many demanding situations they will face on today’s congested roads. In addition to developing the core skills of vehicle operation, control and driving in traffic, specific training modules also highlight typical risk factors for novice drivers, including how each individual’s personality and lifestyle can influence their driving and personal safety.
The Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy for New Drivers believes that coaching students rather than simply giving
instructions behind the wheel is the most effective way to impart the skills necessary for safe and responsible driving.
Our approach involves students in the process at every step, allowing them to evaluate their performance and decide how they can improve the next time. This is a crucial differentiator with our approach as driving is all about critical decision making.In coaching, the student decides what to do instead of simply following instructions.
This approach is proven to help develop critical skills, build confidence, and ease the transition from student driver to solo driver.
A good driver is not someone who gets themselves out of a tricky situation, but rather someone that is experienced
enough not to get themselves into that situation in the first place. Through our coaching approach and decision-making focused classroom sessions, online programs and workshops, we aim to create safer and more responsible drivers for life.
