This Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and Canadian Safety Council (CSC) recognized course is designed for the experienced riders preparing to upgrade to a permanent M license. This course will provide both theory and practical training. You will learn advanced defensive driving techniques, refresh your low & high-speed skills, learn vehicle control all while performing in a real traffic situation (you will ride on commercial, residential and expressway traffic). As a result of successfully completing this course (M road test included), you will be eligible to upgrade your license to an M license and may receive reduced insurance rates (check with your insurance provider). Note: Successful participants will need to present paperwork to your local DriveTest Centre (within 6 months) to physically upgrade your license from the M2 to the M.
Applicants who wish to get a license must be 16 years of age or over and possess a valid Ontario Ministry of Transportation M1 license. This special license is a 90-day permit to ride a motorcycle and is issued by the Ministry of Transportation upon successful completion of a written test. (Any applicants who presently possess a “Limited Speed Endorsement” or in other words, a scooter license, must obtain a “Full-speed Training Temporary Driver’s Licence”. This can be obtained at any DriveTest Centre. This is a 90 day permit which allows you to take the course and update your Limited Speed Licence to a full speed M2 license.)
