Beginner Driver Education

While it is not a requirement for a Class G2 road test, a Ministry of Transportation (MTO) approved beginner driver education (BDE) course is a great idea.

You may be eligible to reduce the time you spend at the Class G1 level if you successfully complete an MTO-approved BDE course with an MTO-licensed school and driving instructor. Completing an MTO-approved BDE course may also provide potential insurance rate discounts.

Be sure to choose a licensed, quality driving school. Schools that are not MTO-approved have no authority to instruct novice drivers.
