Dominion Driving School has been training thousands of students in the KW region over the last 35 years.
We are committed to education for safe and defensive driving.


Primary: We expect the best from our staff, and students to ensure competency, through every step of their learning.
1. Skills and Aptitudes (Dexterity and Application)

2. Emotional Stability (In regards to public safety and respectfulness)

3. Mental Capabilities (Observation of comprehension in regards to fundamental and/or advanced theory and regulations)

4. Conscience (Intents and Motives to achieve license, under a rating not always guaranteed!)

Secondary: We admit, and appreciate, that a Level One beginner's license (or an enforced re-evaluation of) is often a "stepping stone" to higher-level licenses required throughout the depth and width of Transportation and Distribution fields. We, as tutors, must have competence in both experience and theory within, at least, two levels above those which we intend to instruct. We must comprehend the fundamental, or minimum, license requirements of labor equipment and transportation trucking, of protective services (i.e. Fire, Police, Ambulance), of heavy industrial loaders and carriers, of sports racing and entertainment speedsters, of manufacturing and industry lift and motorized carts, of courier, taxi and limousine, and all regulations concerning civilian passenger and family vehicles. Nor must we favor one financial group of individuals over another. Some will apply license purely for recreation, others will apply license for work. Some will have the income to buy expensive, and other, lower incomes, will be limited to second hand sales. Some will see vehicles as "tools", and others as "design" advances. For this reason, a rating system must be comprehensive enough to give a result of proficiency in four "basic" classifications, with which to present, as an assessment of both assets and limitations, a grade improved (or re-evaluated) by specific tutors for higher level achievements; Should our students decide to proceed to further licensing. In a sense, a report card of efficiency and effectiveness presented with the achieving, or failure, or a certificate accompanying, if requested, the license recommendation.0.

It is our intention to apply a concept of " team-work tutorship" between instructor and student (" Analytical Trouble-Shooting" method) whereby both grow and develop in an openness relative to current trends and pulse of the times. In regards to experience and theory, the tutor is to be somewhat of a Level One "sage" while appreciating, at the same time, the various "talents" each student reveals and expresses in the duration of the course tutorship!

Primary: It is reasonable to segregate the individuals, within the class, under three categories;

1. The fast learners and the hyper-actives (approx 10%) Expedients!

2. The ‘average means' of the main body of students (approx 80%)

3. The slower learners and lethargic (approx. 10%) Apprehensive!!

The purpose of this is to develop a "buddy system" of the lethargic working with the hyperactive as special student "tutors" which, besides supporting each other with 2nd opinions, will also set a reasonable pace throughout all sessions and define for the instructor those that require more quality time. Furthermore, it will accentuate three specific behavioral patterns within the class;

Hostility types that tend to confront instructors

Moderate and methodical

Passive individuals that tend to hesitate asking questions

Upon setting a comfortable atmosphere, the instructors can rapport comfortably enough to discuss attitudes and characteristics; whereby limitations of character and a re-evaluation of reservations could give possible reason to deny recommendations of license. Apply the following chart for that tutor/student rapport;
The following is how we perceive Level One (in regards to driver instruction and assessment) and Level Two (in regards to evaluating driver for graduation)

Level One Temporary: Skills/Aptitude 1 to 2 for Orientation/Apprentice

Level Two Graduated: Skills/Aptitude 1 to 3 for Expert License

Level Three "Potential": Skills/Aptitude 1 to 4 for Skilled Licenses

Level Four "Potential": Skills/Aptitude 1 to 5 for Specialist Licenses

Level Five "Potential": Skills/Aptitude 1 to 6 for Professional Licenses
