FAQ

DO I HAVE TO WAIT A WAIT-PERIOD TO TAKE THE M2 COURSE AFTER WRITING THE M1? HOW DOES THAT WORK?

No. With Graduated Licensing in Ontario, you will need to start with your written M1 licence permit. The M1 is valid for 90 days (if it expires before you have tested for your M2, get it reissued).
 
Once you have a valid M1, you can attend a M2 course and test for the M2 licence at a MTO approved school such as Motorsoul anytime as long as you have a valid M1. Your test result from the course is entered into the MTO database and will remain in their system for 6 months only.
 
Once you’ve passed your 60 day wait period, you are able to activate your M2 licence at a MTO upgrading facility where they will issue your new licence.

HOW DO I UPGRADE MY LICENCE AFTER MY COURSE?

You must activate your licence within 6 months of the testing date. Beyond 6 months, the Ministry considers the upgrade expired and new testing must be undertaken.
 

★ Activating your Licence Upgrade:

Step 1: Wait Period – Be sure to be past the required wait period before the next licence upgrade

Step 2: Activate your upgrade at an upgrading facility – Once you have waited the required ‘wait period’, to activate your licence upgrade, go to a licensing upgrading facility with your Drivers Licence.

These facilities include either:

 a DriveTest centre

 the ServiceOntario College Park location in downtown Toronto (777 Bay Street)

At the time that your upgrade is activated, you will receive a temporary licence that has your new upgrade. Your new plastic licence card will be mailed out in approx 4 weeks.

 

WILL I HAVE TO DO ANOTHER TEST WHEN I GO TO THE MTO WITH THE PAPERWORK I RECEIVE AT THE END OF THE COURSE?

No. Motorsoul does the testing. You are only needing to go in to DriveTest to pick up your new licence.
