Class DZ

Short Scope:

This is an automatic transmission, 3-day program consisting of two 5-hour session booked close to your road test date, performed using a Bus.

Full Scope:

The D Auto program consists of 10 hours of practical training and use of our vehicle for the road test.  This training consists of road test preparation, pre-trip inspections, backing up, city & highway driving.  We ask that you write the Class D written test at the Drivetest Centre. Once completed and all fees owed to Drivetest Centre have been paid, you will be eligible for a road test that we will book for you.  This Fast Track program is designed to teach students how to safely operate class D vehicles and obtain the license in a short period of time.  Based on your availability, we try to bring you in for two 5-hour practical training sessions nearest to your road test date.

Bonus:

●    You must hold a minimum of a G class license to obtain a D

●    D covers all G class vehicles

●    Once the D is obtained, you can have the F class put on your license by writing the F written knowledge test at Drivetest Centre (after passing the D road test)
