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.
Students must hold a valid M2 license (no limited licenses accepted) for at least 18 months (if previously taken an MTO approved training course), or who have not completed an MTO approved course but has held a valid M2 license for at least 22 months. Riders must provide a roadworthy motorcycle (capable of highway speeds, 100 km/hr), as well as the ownership and insurance paperwork on the first night. Students should arrive with a DOT approved helmet and appropriate clothing, i.e. jeans, jacket (leather or ballistic nylon is best), gloves and heavy footwear (leather boots covering your ankle – no sandals or running shoes). This training will take place rain or shine, so rainwear is a good idea to have – just in case. All participants will be required to sign a waiver of claim prior (or first night) to taking the course. If you have physical risks that limit you, or you are not comfortable signing this waiver we can not allow you to continue with the courses and no refund will be issued.
