Our History

Becoming a high volume vehicle importer didn’t happen overnight.. RightDrive Inc. launched in October of 2007 with only 6 vehicles in inventory and a small, shared office in Scarborough, Ontario.

Currently located in Pickering, Ontario, RightDrive now hosts hundreds of vehicles at any given time as well as a RHD vehicle showroom, RHD vehicle service center and a JDM parts division.
