Certification Process and Proof of Course Completion

Once a student has successfully completed the course, the student’s driver record is updated with the Ministry of Transportation. This update is done on-line through the Ministry of Transportation Beginner Driver Education Certification website. Once the student certification is processed a Letter of Completion will be mailed to the student with their marks and completion date. Students requiring proof of course completion from the MTO directly need to obtain their “Driver’s Licence History (DLH)”. Students may request this in person at a MTO Driver and Vehicle Issuing Office or by mail. For more information, please contact Service Ontario at 1-800-387-3445.
