PLEASE NOTE: The city is growing. Traffic has increased, which makes picking up students away from the Access Nova Scotia locations more challenging. Highway driving is essential, but most lessons are spent doing traffic lights, intersections, parking and lane changes. Please know that the instructor may require you to meet for your lessons. Pick-up and drop-off zones are decided on what is best for the student’s development.
