TORONTO, June 21, 2012 /CNW/ - Canadian Tire today launched a revolution in new driver training with Canada's newest driving school, the "Canadian Tire Drivers Academy™."  The Canadian Tire Drivers Academy offers among the most competitive and valuable suite of benefits of any driver training program in Canada.

Students will benefit from experienced and licensed driving instructors, new classrooms and hands-on car maintenance training from certified mechanics.  Students will learn to drive in new 2012 Chevrolet Cruze or Sonic cars that are also available for road tests.

Graduates of the Canadian Tire Drivers Academy will receive a Canadian Tire Drivers Club Membership™ that includes complimentary Canadian Tire Roadside Assistance ® for one year and numerous discounts and offers on auto products and services.

"This is a state-of-the-art driving school model that will give new drivers the tools they need to drive safely and help keep their car in good maintenance from day one."
