Gearing Up M1 Exit Course

Course Highlights

This Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and Canadian Safety Council (CSC) recognized course is designed for beginner riders, with little or no experience.  Your time in the course (5 hr theory, 14 hr riding) will focus on providing riders with the basics and advance maneuvering of road safety and defensive driving techniques.  As a result of successfully completing this course (M2 road test included) you will be eligible to upgrade your license to a M2 (after minimum waiting period), and receive a CSC Certificate which may reduced insurance rates (check with your insurance provider).  Note: Successful participants will need to visit your local DriveTest Centre to physically (within 6 months) upgrade your license from the M1 to the M2.



Students must hold a current M1 license (no limited licenses accepted) and will use our bike which are provided.  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.
