Drivers handbooks are available to the students at the school. It is not required that you bring one.
Please note some days classes will be done a couple minutes early due to how quickly students absorb information
3. Last Day of Class
You don’t need to bring a lunch, we are having a pizza party!
Student will choose desired driving instructor for in car component.
4. Complete All 10 Hours In Car Lessons
You can’t get rid of us that quick!
The completion of the 10 hours in car does not automatically allow for the student to take the G2 test. It is not a requirement of Gear Up but rather a requirement of the Ministry of Transportation that a new driver MUST WAIT 8 MONTHS before testing for their G2. Here at Gear Up we prefer to schedule all in car lessons right up to the date the student becomes eligible to take their test.
5. Schedule a time to take your G2 Test
Would you like your instructor to take you for your G2 test? We offer a one hour lesson before your test, use of a company vehicle and provide transportation to and from the London and/or Tillsonburg Drive Test Centres for $125. (Be sure to confirm a date with your instructor before booking test)
To book an appointment you will need:
Your drivers license number
Drivers license expiry date
(instructors will only accommodate London and Tillsonburg G2 DriveTest centre appointments)
