July 2017 – McKenna’s Driving School Opens Halifax Location
June 12, 2017 – by Jake McKenna
The McKenna’s team is excited to announce the opening of our second in-class location starting in July 2017. Since 1996, we have been providing affordable and high-quality driver education to thousands of students with our in-class Dartmouth location. The founder, Ron McKenna, has always made it a priority to provide our students with the best training, and we are proud of the excellent drivers that are graduating from our course.
As of spring 2017, we were selling out of our Dartmouth location and knew that if were to continue to meet the needs of our students then a second location was required. We now will be offering the 25-hours of in-class lessons at our Halifax location.
The 10-hours of in-car lessons will continue to have flexible pick-up and drop-off locations (regardless of in-class location) and the same great rates as our Dartmouth course will be applied.
Please review the in-class Halifax schedule here and register.
I want to give a big thanks to my incredible team – Ron, Bill, Chad, Kaylee, Alex, Todd, Andrew, Tonya and Sam. They continue to provide top-notch service and represent the values of McKenna’s – students and safety come first! I also would like to give recognition to McKenna’s number one fan, Glenna McKenna. Her dedication to our Office Manager role will not be forgotten and she would be proud of the business we continue to grow.
We hope you will join us in Halifax or Dartmouth for your driver education and we offer private lessons for those looking to brush up on their skills or prepare for the road test. Please reach out directly for any questions or comments, and if you have a review we would love to hear it.

Our school is regulated by the province of Nova Scotia and requires 25 hours of comprehensive in-class lessons followed by 10 hours of one-on-one in-vehicle lessons. In-class lessons are instructed in Dartmouth at the Hearthstone Inn (313 Prince Albert Road) and in Halifax as of September 2019 at the Future Inns (30 Fairfax Dr, Halifax, NS B3S 1P1).
