A few of our testimonials
“Duda is an excellent instructor. She teaches you how to drive safely. Thanks to her help I was able to pass on my first attempt. She has a very good teaching method. She draws the scenarios for you on a clipboard and you can always text her with any questions. The price is very reasonable and I would gladly recommend her.”
“I started driving lessons with Duda without any prior driving experience. I learned everything I needed to know about being a safe, smart, and responsible driver while under her guidance and I was equipped with all the proper skills to pass the road test first try and receive my N. Duda makes learning to drive very fun! Her kind demeanor makes the lessons very enjoyable and comfortable. Her outgoing and confident approach to teaching helped me build confidence on the road, my driving proficiency is a result of her expert instruction and good communication between teacher and student. I would not be here without her excellent help. Superb service and awesome value! Thank you Duda! I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their driving skills!”
“I had the privilege to be taught by Duda Petrovic. There are not enough words to express of how well of a patient and encouraging teacher she is. I wouldn’t recommend any other driving academy other than Mint driving academy. I’m happy to say that I was able to pass my N test on the first try due to Duda’s and the academy’s high quality of teaching. :)”
Frequently asked questions
Can I use your vehicle for my road test?
Yes, you can absolutely use Mint Driving Academy instruction vehicles for your road test. Our students often feel most comfortable taking the test in the car that they spend hours learning in.
Can you book the Road test appointment with ICBC?

How much is a driving lesson?
All driving lessons and courses are designed to fit the individual needs of our students. We have several packages ranging from $330 and up. You can find additional cost information here.
How many lessons do I need?
As much as we wish we could tell you right off the bat, there is no straight answer to that question! Driving needs are all individual. Most students excel within 10-20 lessons, but some need more or less. We certainly do recommend additional lessons to build up confidence, experience and a strong understanding of the road – the ICBC recommendation, for example, is 40 – 60 hours of practice behind the wheel prior to the successful Road Test result.
