Q. What's the lowdown on driving schools in Kingston?
Since 1969, Excel Driving School in Kingston has been helping students to navigate the path to becoming better, more confident drivers, equipping them with defensive driving skills to keep them safe.
Led by our expert instructors, students experience a wide range of driving conditions during our in-class and in-car driver training program preparing them for their G2 drivers test . We are devoted to ensure that each student drives safely and responsibly and has a positive experience in the car. Students learn that texting while driving is one of the most dangerous things a driver can do behind the wheel of a car.
COVID - 19 UPDATE: Excel Driving School is committed to doing the right thing for our customers and employees. Given the rapidly changing COVID - 19 guidance, effective Sunday, March 22, we suspended all in class and vehicle instructions including private lessons until further notice. We thank you for your understanding. We will resume operations once we are advised that it is safe to do so. Gerry Dion, Owner
