Benefits of the Beginner Driving Education Course

STEP 1: Pass Your G1 Test
Study your Driver’s Handbook and take your G1 written test at the DriveTest office.
The Drivers Handbook is available at our office for $20.00 + HST or at our local DriveTest office located in the Churchill Plaza.
STEP 2: Register
Sign up for a Ministry of Transportation approved Beginner Driver Education Course at Our Driving School!
This course requires that you complete 20 hours of in-class learning + 10 hours of independent study + 10 hours of in-car lessons with one of our knowledgeable and licensed driving instructors.
STEP 3: Take your G2 road test (G1 Exit)
You now are able to take your first road test – the G1 Exit. With the Beginner Education Course you’re able to take this test 4 months earlier! Still unsure if you’re ready? We can help by providing you with a refresher lesson.
STEP 4: Take your G road test (G2 Exit)
1 year after passing your G2 road test, you’re eligible to take your final road test, the G2 Exit (G) road test. After passing this test, congratulations, you’re now a FULLY LICENSED driver in Ontario!
