We have the most friendly, qualified and experienced driving instructors covering all of North Bay and Area, call us today to book your lesson.

A-1 Driving School has been providing quality driver education since 1978, and we have grown to employ seven driving instructors. We provide advanced, corporate, and paramedic driver training throughout Ontario and operate beginner driver courses in three classroom locations – North Bay, Sturgeon Falls and Sundridge.

Our instructors make the difference between getting a license and learning to drive. Our instructors are continually upgrading their skills. We believe them to be among the finest team of driving instructors in the province. Driving is a great freedom and can also provide employment opportunities, but there are risks involved at high costs. Put your trust in A-1 Driving School and know that you are choosing the very best way to learn how to drive.
