Can I start the course without my G1?
You can start the in-class or online course without your G1, and begin the in-car training once you obtain it. Please note that the Ministry of Transportation requires that courses be completed within one year in order to be eligible for certification. You must ensure you give yourself enough time to obtain the G1 and complete 10 hours of in-car training.
Is there a payment plan?
Yes, we have flexible installment plans available; however the full balance must be paid prior to beginning the in-car training. Many students will opt to pay half of the course fee when starting the in-class or online course, and the other half when they are ready to start the in-car lessons. Please contact our office to find out more about payment plans.
How long do I have to finish the course?
You must complete all of the requirements for certification within one year of your starting date.
How much discount will I get on my insurance with the certificate?
You may get a discount up to 41% off your insurance, depending on the area you live in, make, model, color and age of your car, and any other factors that your insurance company takes into account when rating your insurance quote. The Driver’s License History (DLH) provides proof of successful completion of and graduation from a Beginner Driver’s Education (BDE) course. The DLH is widely recognized by the insurance industry as proof of course completion. Once your certification has been processed, your course completion will be recorded on your DLH which you may pick up from Service Ontario or order online.
When will I get my certificate?
Your certification will be processed once the 20 hours of in-class or online theory instruction, 10 hours of flexible instruction/homework (homelinks), and 10 hours of in-vehicle training are complete. These are the three Ministry requirements for certification eligibility. Please check in with our office to confirm your certification has been processed prior to going to Service Ontario to pick up your Driver’s License History.
Do you provide pick up and drop off??
Yes, free pick-up and drop-off is provided unless you reside in a restricted area.
Would I be able to use my instructor's car for the road test?
Yes you can use the instructor’s car for an additional cost depending on which test centre you choose to go to. The use of the car for the road test will also come with a refresher lesson on the day of the exam. We strongly recommend opting to use your instructor’s vehicle for the road test as students will feel most comfortable driving the car that they have learned in. Additionally, the school roof sign on top of the car will alert other drivers on the road that the student is a beginner. Next-Gen Driving School has been in business for more than 40 years and our driving instructors are very experienced with road test centers. We are known by examiners to bring our students for their tests only once they are ready to hit the road in real life. This helps the examiner to feel more comfortable in the car with a novice driver.
is there any charges for cancelation of driving lessons?
All cancelation and appointment changes must be 24 hours before or 50$ (Plus tax) will be charged.
