Odyssey Driving School


Founded in 2005, Odyssey Driving School’s primary objective is to provide the best driver education in the city. Building on its strong advocacy for road safety and defensive driving, all of Odyssey’s training programs are designed to teach driving skills for a lifetime of safety and enjoyment. Our programs include free seminars in Basic Troubleshooting and Car Maintenance and the Traffic Code of the Philippines. The speakers are experts and accredited by the Land Transportation Office (LTO).

Odyssey’s founder, Eduardo Q. Almirante, Jr., has a personal reason behind his company’s advocacy for safe driving. He lost his only brother, Jose Marie, to a vehicular accident in 1999. This is why he makes sure that his company always has the best instructors and staff, and well-maintained, regularly tested vehicles for in-car instruction. In addition, he has gone a step further by localizing the YIELD project.

Along with the founder and his office staff, Odyssey has two highly-skilled practical driving instructors who specialize in teaching defensive driving, and two theoretical classroom professors and technical consultants in the field of automotive mechanics.

The company started in 2005 with two training cars, but has recently added a third one to meet the demand of its growing clientele not only from Cagayan de Oro but from far-flung municipalities and towns in Misamis Oriental.

In December 2008, Odyssey Driving School was incorporated under the laws of the Philippines. It is currently managed and operated by East Quest Automobile Corporation.

Odyssey Driving School is accredited by the Land Transportation Office (LTO) with registration number R10-185 and is located at Almirante Building, Velez-Luna Streets, Cagayan de Oro City. It has recently opened a registration center at the FABE Business Center in Robinson's Mall in Lim Ket Kai.


Odyssey Driving School’s goal is to produce a new breed of educated and disciplined drivers who will make the roads of the Philippine archipelago the safest in Southeast Asia.


Odyssey Driving School's existence is dedicated to fund the JOSE MARIE Q. ALMIRANTE FOUNDATION. The aim of the foundation is to send less fortunate but deserving students desiring to become doctors to the Dr. Jose P. Rizal College of Medicine at Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan.

Jose Marie was an upcoming second year medical student when he died because of a vehicular accident in 1999. He was the only brother of the founder, Eduardo, Jr.


Odyssey Driving School aims to open branches in all major cities of the Philippines to serve more people and help attain its vision and mission.
