Frequently Asked Questions

Is D.T.S.M. Driving School a Ministry-Approved BDE Course Provider?

  • Yes, D.T.S.M. Driving School is a Ministry-Approved Beginner Driver Education Course Provider.

Will I get a Ministry of Transportation (MTO) certificate to apply for an insurance discount, and take my driving test 4 months earlier if I attend your driving school?

  • Certification was changed by the MTO in the fall of 2008. Students who enrolled in a Beginner Driver Education Program (BDE) on or after September 29, 2008 will not be issued a paper certificate from the driving school. Students who have successfully completed all components of the course will be certified on-line by D.T.S.M. Driving School.
  • Students wanting proof of course completion for possible insurance discounts will need to obtain their Driver Licence History Search for Proof of Beginner Driver Education Course Completion. This is done by request through the ministry at any MTO licence office. The Driver Licence History Search can only be requested by the licence holder, as it contains personal information. A separate application must be completed and signed by each applicant. The MTO charges $12.00 for the search.

Will I get an insurance discount if I attend your driving school?

  • The Driver's License History provides proof of a successful completion of and graduation from a BDE course and is widely recognized by the insurance industry as proof of course completion. As an approved BDE course provider, our BDE graduates with a Driver's License History may be eligible for an insurance discount. Contact your insurance provider for more information. To obtain the Driver's License History go to any ServiceOntario location and request the search.
