Students under 18 must have a parent or guardian with them for the first portion of the first classroom session to sign the release waiver.
Students are recommended to bring their own, but if necessary open faced helmets can be supplied by MTOhp.
For the riding portion of the course, (all day Saturday and Sunday) students must wear:
For safety reasons, students who are not wearing the appropriate equipment will not be permitted to ride and will be withdrawn from the course. If students are withdrawn under these circumstances, they will not be entitled to a refund of fees.
Please read all of the following content and related links as you are responsible for understanding it.
Sunday afternoon 1:00 p.m. to about 5:00 p.m. at the same location as your original course or our alternate location - Sheridan College Oakville or the Region of Peel building (7120 Hurontario). You should arrive about 12:45 p.m. to get oriented and select a bike. Please bring your regular driver's licence, a valid M1 or higher motorcycle licence and your retest authorization form.
You will be merged in with the existing class and receive the same instruction and coaching as they do.
Please see these maps.
We offer the same selection of motorcycles as before. You may use any bike not already allocated. Some students will want to use the same type of bike and some may choose a different bike. We will try to provide your first choice but that may not be practical in some cases.
As with the main M1 course, you must use a course provided bike.
The test will be the same as you were exposed to before. The initial period for about the first 90 minutes will be structured practice and coaching. After a break the test will begin. As before, each section will be explained and demonstrated before you ride it.
You will get about 90 minutes of pre test practice including individual and group coaching.
The fee is $50 plus HST, payable by Amex, MasterCard, & VISA. No refunds. Transfers require a new registration in the desired course and payment of new fee. On-line registration only.
Success rates are high. Most students who come back are more relaxed the second time and do better. Sometimes it is just a bit of extra coaching that is needed. Come with a positive expectation.
You may book for another retest but you may want to consider taking the More M1X Riding Time course. See the More M1X Riding Time pages for details
“I just completed the M1 training course to achieve my M2 this past weekend and I cannot say enough great things about the trainers in the Oakville Sheridan course. Where do I start? I had ridden for about 2 years before having an accident and haven't gotten back on in about 10 years. I had apprehension about even sitting back on a bike, let alone completing emergency breaking and swerving maneuvers, but within the first few hours of my training, I recognized the incredible professionalism and patience the instructors had that would push me outside of my comfort zone with a gradual approach. My specific group instructors were Al, Brad, and Bilal ... I couldn't have asked for nicer, more patient instructors. They have answered every question I could think of and helped me get over the block I had since having my accident. The other group had fabulous instructors as well, but my time with them was limited (John, Cool John, and Al). Ian was always there to round out the conversation and set expectations and helped us become confident riders. The tendency to beat myself up over small mistakes would have cost me the whole weekend ... most specifically, big Al, Brad, and Bilal helped me get through that piece. I still have a long way to go with my comfort level, but I am much more confident in hopping back on with the knowledge and skills I have gained over this weekend. Thank you, Al, Brad, Bilal and Ian ... a SERIOUSLY fantastic job this weekend!!!”
