How to choose the best driving school in Quebec

March 25, 2024

The SAAQ theoretical exam is an essential step for anyone aspiring to become a driver in Quebec. This exam is a prerequisite for moving on to the practical test and, ultimately, for obtaining a driver’s license. In this article, we will delve into what you need to know about the SAAQ theoretical exam, how to prepare for it, and what it means for your driving journey.

 

Criteria to Consider When Choosing Your Driving School

 

Accreditation and Recognition

The first step in choosing a driving school is to verify its accreditation. A school recognized by the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) ensures that the teaching program complies with standards and legal requirements. It is also wise to inquire about the professional affiliations and certifications of the instructors to ensure quality training.

 

Location and Accessibility

The location of the driving school is an important factor to consider. Proximity to your home or workplace will facilitate your travel and can reduce the stress associated with planning your lessons. Additionally, consider access to public transportation or ease of parking if you are driving there. At Somerled School, we can move closer to accommodate you during your practical driving lessons.

 

Reviews and Reputation

Online reviews and recommendations are valuable indicators of former students’ satisfaction. Take the time to read comments on review sites, forums, and social networks to get an overview of the experience offered by the school.

Pricing and Payment Terms

Transparency in costs is essential. A reliable driving school should offer a clear pricing structure without hidden fees. Payment options, possible payment facilities, or packages should be clearly outlined to help you plan your budget.

 

Schedule Flexibility

The school’s ability to offer flexible schedules is a major advantage for learners with personal or professional commitments. A good school should be able to adapt to your schedule to facilitate your learning.

 

Registration and Ease of Access

The registration process should be simple and efficient. Modern schools often offer online registration and provide all the necessary information to start your training without hassle.

 

Quality of the Vehicle Fleet

The vehicles used for learning should be in good condition, safe, and representative of the cars you will drive in your daily life. This includes regular maintenance of the vehicles and access to different types of cars to adapt to various learning needs.

 

Expertise of Instructors

The instructors must not only be qualified and experienced but also pedagogical and attentive to students. Their ability to tailor teaching to individual needs is a fundamental aspect of a driving school’s quality.

 

Online Theoretical Courses

A school that values a personalized approach and is ready to adapt its teaching to the specific needs of each student stands out distinctly. Recognizing the individuality of each learner is a sign of quality and commitment to each one’s success.

 

Making the Right Choice: A Thoughtful Approach

Selecting a driving school should not be taken lightly. Visit the premises, meet the teaching team, and, if possible, attend a trial lesson. These interactions will give you a direct insight into the atmosphere, pedagogical approach, and the seriousness of the establishment. To make an appointment with Somerled School, click here:
