It’s time – she or he has turned 16 and it is raring to have his or her G1. CAA has almost six decades of driver training experience, and now we realize that this exciting amount of time in a young person’s life is filled with big decisions. Deciding what driver training school to enrol with is just one of the biggest. Understanding how to drive is a vital life skill that needs a great foundation and lots of research.
CAA helps parents and teens choose the best driving school with ease. The CAA Approved Driving School Network (ADSN) is made up of independently-owned driving schools that meet CAA’s driver training standards. They exclusively teach the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO)’s approved CAA Simple tips to Drive Beginner Driver Education course. We’ve done our homework to plan a curriculum that will help teens and beginner drivers learn the skills they have to drive safely.
If an ASDN isn’t conveniently located, CAA continues to be there to help you pick the best driving course for your teen. We recommend these guidelines that will help you find an excellent driving school:
Find a course that’s MTO-approved. Beginner Driver Education Programs must certanly be MTO-approved to enable graduates to apply for their G2 road test 4 months prior to when new drivers who don’t complete an MTO-approved course. Each of our ADSN locations teach an MTO-approved curriculum that meets and exceeds Ministry standards.
Make sure the driving school is licensed because of the MTO. Each of CAA’s ASDN locations are properly licensed. If you choose a school which is not an ASDN, ensure so it’s not on the MTO’s list of revoked driving schools.
Verify the instructor’s credentials and class size requirements. Smaller class sizes imply that your teen can get more one-on-one education. The instructor should hold proper insurance and a MTO Provincial Instructor Licence in order to teach a driving education course. She or he also needs to provide progress and evaluation reports to students throughout the course.
Verify that working out vehicles are insured and properly plated. All training vehicles ought to be defined as such, endorsed and insured appropriately. The Driver Instructor Licence must be displayed within the training vehicle all of the time while providing instruction.
Asking family and friends for driving school recommendations or reading online reviews can go a long way to locating a school which you along with your teen would be confident with. CAA can also be here to offer help and support. Contact us at email@example.com with any questions you may have, or check our approved list of driving schools.
