City Driving Offer Still Ongoing

With spring finally here, now is the perfect time to sign up your kids for driving lessons. And the deal with City Driving School, owned by fellow RWA parent Tom Spiegler, is still on. Sign up any RWA students (over the age of 15) or alumni or sibling of a RWA student and a portion of the proceeds goes to the Royal West Academy Foundation’s capital campaign.

City Driving School’s is providing its full service course at a special price for RWA. Instead of $1,095, the price is now $870 plus tax plus a $225 tax deductible donation to the Royal West Academy Foundation. When paying for the course, which you can do in installments, you must write a separate cheque payable to the Royal West Academy Foundation in the amount of $225 so that you will receive the tax receipt.

You may make arrangements via Interac e-Transfer as well. If you prefer other methods of payment, please do not hesitate to call City Driving directly at 514-738-2211.
