It’s time – your teen has turned 16 and it is raring to have his / her G1. CAA has almost six decades of driver training experience, and we understand that this exciting amount of time in a young person’s life is full of big decisions. Deciding what driver training school to enrol with is among the biggest. Understanding how to drive is an important life skill that requires a good foundation and plenty of research.
CAA helps parents and teens choose the best driving school with ease. The CAA Approved Driving School Network (ADSN) is composed 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 should drive safely.
If an ASDN is not conveniently located, CAA continues to be there that will help you pick the best driving course for the teen. We advice these tips to help you find an excellent driving school:
Find a course that’s MTO-approved. Beginner Driver Education Programs should be MTO-approved to help graduates to apply for their G2 road test 4 months earlier than new drivers who don’t complete an MTO-approved course. All of our ADSN locations teach an MTO-approved curriculum that meets and exceeds Ministry standards.
Ensure the driving school is licensed by the MTO. Each of CAA’s ASDN locations are properly licensed. In the event that you choose a school that’s 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 mean that your child can get more one-on-one education. The instructor should hold proper insurance and a MTO Provincial Instructor Licence so that you can teach a driving education course. He or she must also provide progress and evaluation reports to students throughout the course.
Verify that working out vehicles are insured and properly plated. All training vehicles must be defined as such, endorsed and insured appropriately. The Driver Instructor Licence must be displayed within the training vehicle all the time while providing instruction.
Asking family and friends for driving school recommendations or reading online reviews can significantly help to locating a school which you as well as your teen will soon be more comfortable with. CAA can also be here to offer help and support. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries you could have, or check our approved list of driving schools.
