Each night we cover a chapter.  A certificate will be issued when the course is COMPLETED, to graduate from the GLS and for an Insurance discount. Make sure you keep the certificate for future use; there will be a replacement cost of $40.00.

There will be ten hours of in-vehicle instruction. The lessons will be in and around the town of Antigonish. When the student receives their learners license they must call us to schedule their lessons. There could be a 3-4 week waiting time.

The students must wait nine months before they can go for their road test. We do half of their lessons when they get their learners permit and the other half just before they go for their road test. This will give them nine months to practice. There are some parents who believe practice is not their responsibility and that the lessons the student receives from us are all that should be required. The lessons from us are enough to show the student what to do and how to drive safely. It gives them the knowledge but not the experience. They must get practice on their own or you can pay for extra lessons. 

Some students need more practice than others; If you believe that practice is not your responsibility please make that decision before the student goes any further in the course. If a student doesn't show up for an in-car lesson they will be asked to pay for the instructor's time $40.00. Please give 24 hours' notice.

Certificate or Road test will not be given unless payment is received in full.
