"I would like to recommend TERWILLEGAR & RIVERBEND DRIVING SCHOOL is a wonderful place to start your driving lessons. The instructor has a remarkable manner which was the first thing I noticed about him and it was also the deciding factor to go to here. The instructor here was a wonderful driving instructor, who taught me the skills I needed throughout my learning experience. I would recommend him to absolutely everyone, as he was so kind and patient with me when I made silly mistakes. Before many lessons, especially at the beginning, I was incredibly anxious, however he was reassuring when teaching me.
Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your knowledge and experience which enabled me to pass my test first time. Your driving experience was valuable from the beginning in making me feel at ease and confident in my abilities to drive the best I can. Thank you very much." Sumal Wattegedara (April/2017)

"I cannot say enough positive things about Riverbend/Terwillegar Driving School. I wasn’t particularly enthusiastic about driving at all prior to coming (I’d had an incident when learning how to drive a few years ago that completely turned me off of the idea) but almost immediately during the first in-car lesson, you cCombaould tell this time would be different. My instructor never once lost his calm demeanor, or made me feel anything less than at ease. Even going outside of the small Riverbend area onto more major roads, like Whyte and 23rd Avenue, and into neighbourhoods I didn’t know, I found myself actually having fun and enjoying spending time on the road. If I ever got stressed out or unsure of my abilities, the instructor made sure to tell me everything the things I was doing right and re-iterate my right to be on the road; which was a confidence builder I needed more than anything. When comparing my experience to my sisters’ experiences at a major, well known company, there is no competition. Riverbend/Terwillegar was cheaper (and I still got the “insurance reduction” benefit); had in class sessions only took up 2 weekend days, and an instructor put a lot of effort and thought into scheduling in car lessons that were most convenient to me and my schedule (his availability is all evenings and weekends). The fact, too, that the car you learn in is available to rent for your driving test is a luxury that saves you the worry of learning a different vehicle.
I very strongly believe that I wouldn’t have gotten my Class 5 on my first try (or even pursued learning how to drive seriously) without this school and would recommend it to anyone! Thank you!''. (Beth Comba/April 2017)
"I had an excellent experience with Terwillegar & Riverbend Driving School. Not only did the in-class course cover and reinforce all of the most important concepts of driving, but the in-car lessons were extremely useful and important in building up my confidence and skills as a driver. My instructor was an especially patient and caring person, and went over and above what was expected to help me complete the course and get my license, even over a range of several months. I am extremely grateful to have had him as a teacher." Maria M. (April, 2017)
"If you're looking for a driving school, look no further, this is the one for you. You will get the maximum help and the best advice for you to achieve your goal whether it's to better drive or to get a license. I've just passed my driving test, first shot hit the bull's eye. I was a bad driver turned into a good one thanks to my instructor. He boosted my confidence and mentored me with passion and patience, and in a friendly manner. To him I'll forever be grateful." Tilal Abubakr (March/2017)
" The Terwillegar and Riverbend Driving School is a great and overall successful learning experience for those who wish to build their knowledge of the road in hopes of finally acquiring that important drivers license. Having just finished the course myself, I can truthfully say that I came out of the class with way more wisdom and understanding than which I came in. This course provides you with insurance benefits as well as essential awareness and insight on the road, and I would recommend this course for all who have doubts and maybe interested. " Don Saintil-LaGuerre (January, 2017)
"I have had the pleasure to attend Terwillegar and Riverbend Driving School and I greatly appreciated the services that were provided to me. Both in-class and on the road, the information I acquired through this class was both necessary and important. I was able to improve my driving skills through actual, valuable practice (with the help of my knowledgeable and patient instructor) and my comfort level grew as the classes progressed. The knowledge and the experience that this class has brought me allowed me to walk away a better and smarter driver and also allowed me to obtain, as a result, my class 5-GDL licence. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who may be considering a class such as this one and I believe it is worthwhile". Jean H. (June, 2016)

Two months after starting his course, I've passed the road test and have only praise for his teaching." Cindy Jiaxin Xue, President, Stollery Youth Committee University of Alberta (July, 2015)
"I just wanted to say that this was a great experience. I was always terrified of the thought of driving and tried to avoid it as much as I could; however, through your driving school I actually gained enough confidence in myself to drive without too much fear. During the course, road time was used effectively. The instructor was very patient and informative during all lessons. Instructions were also always clear and easy to follow. Overall, I am very pleased with my experience here and would recommend this driving school to others. Thank You!" Muge Y.
"I have held my learners for 5 years but never consistently drove. I finally decided that it was time to get my driver's license. I researched driving schools to brush up and learn the proper driving skills that I needed. Best experience ever; I learnt a lot and strengthened what I already knew. The instructor was amazing and very knowledgeable. I passed at my first attempt and with room for errors. I recommend this driving training company. I have learnt so much. I will be going back again to brush up for my advance road test ." Nikki S.
"This driving school is above extraordinary! I was nervous about driving but the instructor was absolutely great! He was calm and delivered precise instructions which really helped me gain confidence and become a better driver! We covered everything from the basics to advanced driving skills! The classroom lessons were also fun. Highly recommend this school! Thanks for everything!:" Ananya
