Driver education with a difference, a purpose, and a passion

City Driving School. Established in Montreal. Since 1958

City Driving School was founded in 1958 by Victor Spiegler. At this time there was an increasing need for quality driver education because accident rates were increasing as quickly as were the number of new drivers, and automobiles, being added on our roads.

City Driving School was established on August 8, 1958, by Victor Spiegler. This photo was taken in the early spring of 1959.
Licencing requirements were simple and lax then. Québec had no driver education requirements. Being a professional driver already, Mr. Spiegler decided to answer this important calling to become certified by enrolling for accredited driving instructor qualifications in Chicago, Illinois, long before Québec demanded any serious qualifications for driver training.
City Driving School director, Thomas Spiegler
His son, Thomas, has been exposed to driver educationfor all of his life. He started teaching part-time in 1983 while pursuing university degrees. Tom has been actively involved full time since 1986 and is passionate about driving and educating the public about safe driving.

City Driving School promotes safe driving by getting family and the community involved. Parents are encouraged to  act as accompanying drivers and to attend theory and driving sessions with their teens.
