Requirements

  • Students are required to bring their Driver’s Handbook. A course textbook will be provided.
  • 10 hours of independent study
  • Students will be required to maintain a 70% average in the classroom and once the 20 hours are completed
  • After the classroom portion is completed, students will be eligible for the in-car sessions which require an 80% average for certification.

Upon completion of the course, our office certifies the student with the Ministry of Transporation (MTO). This certification is required proof for your insurance company and can be acquired at Service Ontario for $12.00.

How to get your license:

Our 20 hours of classroom training is delivered over 4 days (9 am – 3 pm each day), divided into 8 segments (morning & afternoon). Unlike other driving schools, we offer flexible course days to accommodate working schedules. Our students will learn about the following:

  • How crashes happen and how to prevent them
  • Defensive and cooperative driving skills
  • Winter driving
  • Front and rear collision avoidance techniques
  • Shoulder recovery on the highway
  • Standard and ABS braking techniques
  • How to handle emergencies, avoid aggressive drivers and people who tailgate and much more.

*Please note that there is NO online homework portion of our courses.

In our 10 hours of one-on-one in-car training, students must maintain an 80% average for certification and will learn the life-saving skills they need to recognize risks on the road and respond effectively. We pick up and drop off anywhere in Sault Ste. Marie.
The 10-hours of independent study is taken up in class on the fourth day of class (last afternoon segment) and we address questions about their responsibilities and the rules of the road, and the consequences of breaking them.

Benefits of the Beginner Driving Education Course
  • Shorter wait time to complete your G2 Road Test (G1 Exit) (8 months compared to 12)
  • Save significantly on insurance
  • Become a confident, safe driver

With an approved Beginner Driver Education Course at Our Driving School, you are eligible to schedule your G1 Exit Test after only 8 months. A Beginner’s permit has two phases, G1 and G2. Normally you cannot exit G1 and enter G2 until you have 12 months experience, but this is reduced to 8 months with your Driver Education certification. The cost of insurance may be greatly reduced with the completion of a Beginner Driver Education Course from Our Driving School. Check with your insurance agent to confirm how much you can save.  Students who have completed the Beginner Driver Education Course will have lower insurance premiums.

Help with road tests and further training:
Upon successful completion of this course, we can book your road test, arrange use of one of our cars, and pick you up! We offer Refresher Lessons prior to the final road test and can pick you up in plenty of time to practice.
Car rental for G2 or G road tests:
In order for you to complete your G1 Exit or G2 Exit Road Test, you need to have a safe vehicle available for you to use. The examiner at your driving test will check your car for cracks in the windshield, current licence plate sticker, and make sure that the vehicle signal lights, brake lights and horn are working. Remember that our vehicles are available to use for your road test, we also pick up and drop off anywhere within city limits. We can also offer you a Refresher Lesson just before your road test if you feel you want to go over the road test procedures.
