Voted Number 1 Driving School in Brantford



Mike's Driving School has been a family owned and operated driving school in Brantford since 1991. As you search for the ideal driving school you will notice there is no shortage of arrogance in the driver education field. Everyone claims to be better than everyone else. What I can tell you is that we are NOT a national franchise. We are local people serving and supporting Brantford, Brant County, and surrounding area. Since my name is on this driving school you may understand why I have always tried to provide experienced, knowledgeable and patient instruction for anyone learning to drive. Instructors who possess these qualities are a precious commodity and I'm pleased to say you will find them at my driving school.
Our motto "TEACHING TO SAVE LIVES" involves legal, defensive, and proactive techniques to equip one to survive the challenge of sharing the roads with others. We also teach ways and means to economize on fuel and vehicle wear-and-tear thereby preserving the environment. This is a long-term extension of that mission stated above. In 1990 I converted the first of many of my driving school cars to natural gas--a cleaner burning fuel. The environmental theme continues to this day as I teach in a Prius hybrid and it is reflected in our teaching and our green logo. Please ask about our GUARANTEE and be assured of my most sincere wishes for a safe driving future.
