Yes, once you select the road test package with minimum in car lessons.
I have my international driving license. Can I start my driving lessons now?
Your international Driving Permit is not an Ontario Driving License. Due to this, you will first have to get your G1 license before beginning road lessons. You can enter your previous experience when you are in the process of getting your G1, this will help you fast-track the process! In some cases, you can be eligible to get your G2 or G within a week.
I have a really busy schedule. Can I do my BDE classes or my in-car lessons only on the weekend?
Due to the pandemic, you are only eligible to take online courses to complete your BDE certification, which you can do at your own pace- including weekends! While we can’t guarantee your in-car lessons only happen on the weekends, we can try our best to accommodate you.
I have anxiety related to driving. Can you help?

MTO requires a minimum of 10 hours in-car training. Every individual learns differently. If you need you may always book more in-car lessons as per your need through our website.
Can I practice between lessons?
Certainly it's a great idea to make use of every opportunity to get behind the wheels, however you have to be accompanied by the experienced and qualified driver all the time in the passenger seat. Don't forget to check with the insurance if you are covered. Also be mindful and take extra care as your car won't be having dual brakes.
