We are a Ministry Approved Beginner Education Course Provider (BDE).
All Ministry Approved Beginner Driver Education Courses in Ontario are a minimum of 40 hours of total training, consisting of 20 hours of classroom theory, 10 hours of "Homelink" assignment and 10 hours behind the wheel training in our dual brake car. There are currently over 50 MTO approved curriculums.

Our classroom theory is cutting edge/state of the art. It focuses on collision prevention, defensive driving and how to pass your road test, including all the other necessary topics. We do this using an awesome computer projection presentation with amazing videos.

Our interactive classroom approach, has students working together in the classroom to determine how crashes occur, and how they can be avoided. Our 26 page magazine like, picture workbook (HomeLink) furthers your knowledge of defensive driving and collision avoidance. This workbook is much simpler and better than the tedious 10 hours of online homework that many driving schools use.

We have 8 locations & more than 25 instructors, both male & female, to serve you better.

Your private in car lessons may be scheduled 3 to 5 days after your first theory class.
In car, behind the wheel driving lessons are 1 hour or 1 1/2 or 2 hours per session, per day.
They are booked directly with your choice of instructor.

It is possible to complete your course in 16 days. Instructors are available 7 days a week.

Your course must be completed within six months.

What's Included in our BDE Course:

  • 20 hours classroom theory over 4 days or 4 afternoons.
  • 10 hours HomeLink theory which is completed at home in your student workbook.
  • 10 hours private driving lessons in our dual brake equipped car. Includes pickup & drop off within our service area. (Ask if we serve your area. Students who want distant service will be charged an additional fee, just like express buses or taxis)
  • MTO registration & certification costs.

★Please Note:
Students that reside outside our service area, please call us to discuss Instructor availability and what the additional charges will be, if you cannot meet the Instructor in the city.

Our mission is to train you to drive safely (so you won't crash into us)!
