Beginner Driver Education Courses

While it’s not a requirement for a G1 road test, a Ministry of Transportation (MTO) approved Beginner Driver Education (BDE) course is the way to go.
 
You may be eligible to reduce the time you spend at the G1 level if you successfully complete a ministry-approved BDE course with an MTO licensed school and driving instructor. Completing a ministry-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 G1 drivers. Driving instructors must work for a licensed BDE driving school to teach G1 students. To find an approved MTO BDE course provider, you can:
1. Go online at: Ontario.ca/bde
2. Email driver.education@ontario.ca
3. If you wish, ask to meet with the instructors who will be conducting the classroom instruction and the behind-the-wheel training 
 
Remember, driving is a privilege. Help us keep Ontario’s roads the safest in North America.
