Hello and welcome to Bedford Driver. My name is Pete Stevens (Instructor Maverick) and I'm a certified professional driving instructor and classroom teacher in Halifax Nova Scotia. For the past 25 years I have worked as a mechanic, an oilfield technician, I.T. technician and now as a driving instructor. The one aspect that all of these jobs have in common is they all involve significant amounts of driving. Approximately 60,000 kms a year to be exact. 

I recently switched schools and now work for Brave Driver Training. Brave is a progressive company that is always exploring new and innovative ways to make learning to drive fun and chill. They even gave me a cool nickname.


Our instructors are the best of the best and we are all very laid back and patient. We are an inclusive school so we welcome everyone and anyone to enroll in one of our affordable driver's ed programs. If you suffer from nervousness or anxiety and find learning to drive intimidating then this is the school for you. We are highly experienced drivers and teachers and our online training program is second to none. 

The courses are self-paced so you can complete them when it's convenient for you. See some of the reviews on our website from students who have completed one of our driving programs or ask a friend how the experience was for them. This is how driver education should be in 2023. See the link below for more information.

Below are some photos from my experiences in the Alberta Oilfield. Oil rigs usually operate in mountainous and remote areas because that's where the oil is. Driving in the mountains involves many different skills but most of all it requires the ability to think on your feet and make logical and safe decisions in real time. These mountain roads were all mud so chaining up the truck was often a requirement. I chained up my truck many times on mountain roads at night with my back to the grizzly bears, cougars, and other wildlife that dwelled in the forest. I learned alot from my time in the oil patch and can confirm that experience is the best teacher.

One of my students recently experienced a road rage incident while practicing. These stickers keep other drivers behind you chill while you're trying to learn. You would be amazed at how many drivers respond positively to these stickers and sometimes will follow even further back.
