Studying for the Test
- Questions on the knowledge test are based on the official driver’s handbook for the class of licence you want. While there is a partial version of the handbook on the MTO website, we recommend purchasing or borrowing a printed copy of the driver’s handbook to study.
- A Beginner Driver Education (BDE) course that has been approved by MTO can also teach you the skills and attitudes you need to be a safe and responsible driver. These courses are optional. However, if you choose to enroll, we recommend reviewing the MTO-approved driving schools on the MTO website.
