Students are recommended to bring their own, but if necessary open faced helmets can be supplied by MTOhp.

How long and when is the retest course?

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.

What kind of motorcycles can I choose from?

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.

I have my own bike now. Can I use it?

As with the main M1 course, you must use a course provided bike.

When does the test occur and what is in it?

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.

Will I get a chance to practice?

You will get about 90 minutes of pre test practice including individual and group coaching.

What is the fee?

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.

What are my chances of passing?

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.

What happens if I am still not successful?

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

“Highly recommended! Finished my M1X course with MTOHP last weekend. Great course and fantastic instructors.
Even if you think you know how to ride, even if you think you're just going for an insurance certificate, you will definitely learn some very valuable skills. As uncomfortable as it may have been, I was lucky enough to go on a cold and rainy weekend which gave me the skills and confidence to tackle riding in inclement weather. My main instructors(Doug, Chuck and Cal), were very experienced and knowledgeable, very patient, most times pretty funny and always friendly. Other instructors would often float to different groups as well to help out, and everybody seemed quite nice and genuinely interested in making us all the safest riders we could be. I also can't forget to mention cutekill and Bill, who helped me get booked in, and Bill even put in extra effort to get me switched from Brampton to Oakville due to my travel distance.
All in all, despite the bad weather, it was a very fun and informative weekend. I already feel much safer, and more confident. Thanks Alot Guys!”
