Digital courses are generally more affordable than traditional in-person driving courses, making them accessible to a wider range of learners. The interactive learning experience uses multimedia content, such as videos, animations, and quizzes, to create an engaging learning environment that helps students retain information better. Online courses also ensure consistent and up-to-date content by regularly updating it in line with the latest traffic laws, regulations, and best practices. Progress tracking features help students monitor their learning progress and identify areas where they may need more practice or review. Successfully completing a BDE Digital Course may qualify you for an insurance discount, as some insurance companies offer reduced rates for new drivers who have taken an approved driver education course.

Q36) What are the policies of MTO regarding G1, G2 and G?
A36) The Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) implements specific policies and regulations for each stage of the Graduated Licensing System, which includes G1, G2, and G licenses. These policies aim to ensure that new drivers gain the necessary skills and experience before obtaining a full driver's license. For the G1 license, applicants must be at least 16 years old, pass a written knowledge test, and always be accompanied by a fully licensed driver with at least four years of driving experience. G1 drivers must maintain a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.0%, ensure all passengers wear seatbelts, and abide by highway and time restrictions. When progressing to the G2 license, G1 drivers must wait at least 12 months, or 8 months if they have completed an approved driver education course, before taking the G2 road test. G2 drivers must maintain a BAC of 0.0% and follow passenger restrictions if they are aged 19 or younger. All passengers must wear seatbelts, and the number of passengers must not exceed the number of functioning seatbelts. To obtain a full G license, G2 drivers must wait at least 12 months before taking the G road test, which assesses advanced driving skills, high-speed driving, and defensive driving techniques. G license holders must follow the legal BAC limit of 0.08%, though drivers aged 21 or younger and commercial drivers must maintain a BAC of 0.0%. Once a driver has successfully passed the G road test, they are granted a full G license, allowing them to drive without any Graduated Licensing System-related restrictions. However, they must still adhere to all traffic laws and regulations in Ontario.

Q37) What are the common mistakes students make that result in failure of G1, G2 and G2 Tests?
A37) Common mistakes that may result in failure of the G1, G2, and G tests can vary depending on an individual's driving skills and knowledge. However, frequent mistakes that students make during each stage of the testing process include inadequate preparation, misunderstanding questions, and rushing through the G1 written knowledge test. For the G2 road test, common mistakes include failing to observe and obey traffic signs and signals, poor lane discipline, inadequate speed control, insufficient mirror and blind spot checks, improper turns, and issues with parallel parking and reversing. In the G test, which is an advanced road test, mistakes often involve poor merging and exiting on highways, inadequate space management, insufficient hazard awareness, an inability to handle complex driving situations, and failing to demonstrate defensive driving techniques. To minimize the chances of failure, students should thoroughly study the Official MTO Driver's Handbook, practice their driving skills in various conditions, and consider taking a certified driver education course.

A38) If your driver's license is lost or stolen, the first step is to report the loss or theft to the police and obtain a police report or report number. Then, you should visit a ServiceOntario location to apply for a replacement driver's license, bringing appropriate identification documents, police reports, or documentation related to the loss or theft. You will need to pay a replacement fee at the time of your application. After completing the application and paying the fee, you will receive a temporary driver's license that is valid for 90 days. Your permanent driver's license will be mailed to you within a few weeks of your application. It's important to keep your temporary license with you while you wait for your permanent license to arrive. The process for replacing a lost or stolen driver's license may vary depending on your province or territory, so it's best to check your local ServiceOntario or MTO website for specific requirements and procedures.

Q39) How do I book a road test appointment and what documents do I need to bring with me?

You will need to provide personal information such as your driver's license number and the type of road test you wish to take. On the day of your road test, you will need to bring your valid driver's license, a vehicle that meets the requirements for the type of test you are taking, and any other documents or fees required by your province or territory, such as proof of insurance or registration. Be sure to arrive at the test location early and be prepared to follow the instructions of the examiner.
