At the Academy of Driving Unipol, we believe that all driving schools are NOT created equal. In fact, we pride ourselves on knowing that we stand head and shoulders above other schools in the region. By taking pride in what we do we make sure that the driving skills we teach to our students will stay with them all their lives. Utilizing our programs, we emphasize:

  • Defensive driving
  • Strong observation habits
  • Safe motoring
  • Mature and responsible attitude as a road user

Our experienced instructors focus on teaching safe driving techniques, rather than just the skills “to pass a driving test”.



Our staff of classroom and driving instructors is professionally trained with years of industry experience.
