Who we are

DAYA LEARNERS "the institute of driver training" first commenced its operations in September 1966 at Bambalapitiya Colombo 04, Sri Lanka. Founder chairperson Ms. Daya Rupasinghe started learning to drive when she was schooling from her father's car. later on, in 1964 she went for the driving test by driving a bus. And went on to the record books as the first woman to get the heavy vehicles license in Sri Lanka. At the age of 22 in 1966 She started her own driving school with one Morris minor car, then went on increasing the number of cars as she became popular to everyone for her training. then she expanded her services by opening new branches in Havelock rd, Battaramulla, Ratmalana, and Wellawatta by recruiting new instructors. In 1984 she was the only person to be invited by the world driving schools association for the world conference held in London. As her success story continues she has now more than 14 English/Tamil/Sinhalese speaking instructors working in her institute. Having a client base from local to expats. We have been training thousands of pupils to become professional drivers for the past 50 years! and 5 decades of experience and trusted service have proved us to be the leading driving school in Sri Lanka.



Thanks for your guiding

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Chaminda, and DAYA LEARNERS! My instructor, Chaminda was very knowledgeable, patient and kind as I was very nervous and unconfident. I will recommend him to anyone who wishes to be a good and safe driver.

I highly recommend DAYA LEARNERS because through the whole process of looking for driving lessons until passing my exam (1st time), Bernard was very pleasant and supportive, always giving me the best advises and instructions. Regarding the driving lessons, he is a competent and dedicated instructor, he teaches you everything that you need to know to be a safe driver and pass your exam.

Great tips

When I started driving with my instructor Bernard, I had lots of bad habits in my driving. Bernard took much interest in my driving and trained me so well, even surprised in my driving standard now. Today I got my Full driving license. If you are serious about driving well go to DAYA LEARNERS. I would recommend Bernard to any one, great instructor. He also gave me great tips for passing the test.
