Driving schools and driver’s education courses are formal classes and programs that prepare new drivers in their quest to obtain a learner’s permit or driver’s license. Think of it as a right of passage for those seeking the freedom of the open road. While the possibility of getting a license or permit exists without taking a course, certain benefits come from taking one.
Driving in the United States versus driving in Canada can be similar. The main differences come in slight variances in the laws and provincial rules of the road that exist between the two countries. Two glaring examples of this are the measurement of speed (miles per hour/kilometers per hour), and no legal right turns on red in Canada.
The United States and Canada belong to the Driving School Association of the Americas (DSAA). The DSAA was formed in 1973 to promote educational standards and best practices for driving schools and education programs.
