It is our aim to help both young and old drivers adopt defensive driving techniques in order to become responsible drivers and be courteous towards other road users.

The mission of Smart Driving Academy School is to provide a quality traffic safety education program in a welcoming and professional environment for all students. To accomplish this we need both students (and parents/guardians) to adhere to our school polices. These policies are designed to help the student and their parents/guardians understand their responsibilities and the responsibilities of the Driving School.

Additional information and clarifications will be given during the class. Thank you for your business and we hope you will enjoy our satisfactory services.
