Basic Classroom Instructor Course
Thank you for considering the Trubicars Ministry of Transportation (MTO) Approved Basic Classroom Instructor Course.
This course has been developed in consultation with individuals qualified in Adult Education and Driving Instructors with years of experience.
Our goal is to produce top-quality Classroom Instructors who will have a positive impact upon people’s lives and overall road safety in Ontario.
Every year, people are needlessly injured or killed on Ontario roadways, and poor driving habits and attitudes are mainly to blame.
We want our graduates to be part of the solution. We want to take their interest in teaching and road safety and mold them into a PASSION for producing the highest quality new drivers in Ontario.
If being the BEST is what you strive for then Trubicars is the right school for you!

plans in order to bring life to your presentations. At Trubicars we think learning is more effective and memorable when it is fun. We encourage you to let your creative side shine! These short lessons will be delivered in class to your fellow instructors
who will critique you. Together, through this peer feedback, we will learn from each other as a group.
Once you have completed the theory portion you will move on to have some co-teaching practice with a qualified Driving Instructor Training Assistant (DITA) near your home with one of our training partners. Nothing can substitute the experience of instructing
