The Beginner Driver Education Course at Ward’s Driving School is a comprehensive training program specializing defensive driving and road safety. Our Beginner Driver Education Course provides students with thorough understanding of the rules of the road through instructor lead in-class instructions partnered with hands on experience with one-on-one in-vehicle driving lessons.

The Beginner Driver Education Course consists of:
  • 20 hours of in-class instruction
  • 10 hours in-vehicle training
  • 10 hours Homelink
    Homelink is the Ministry of Transportation workbook for the Beginner Driver Education Course. Some work will be completed in class, and the student is expected to complete the workbook within 1 year of starting the drivers education course. If the workbook is not completed at the end of 1 year, the student will not receive their MTO certificate.
  • Defensive driving techniques and systems
  • Private in-car lessons, personal one to one training
  • Free home, work or school pickup within city limits
  • MTO Certification*
  • Reduce G1 exit road test wait by 4 months
  • Absolutely no experience necessary
Our Beginner Driver Education Course does not train you to pass a road test; instead we train you how to drive! The result is a much more confident and skilled driver, with the preparation to easily pass your road test!

Our courses run Monthly, Weekends and special 4 day Courses.
*Upon successful completion of the Beginner Driver Education Course, students must request a “Driver’s License History WITH Drivers Education Training” through one of the Service Ontario Offices – this IS your MTO Certificate.*
