Screen Shot 2022 08 30 at 8.53.15 AM

Vehicle-for-Hire Training program has been certified by the City of Toronto for Vehicle-for-Hire drivers in that city as of September 2022.

In Toronto, new applicants for a taxicab, limousine, and private transportation company (such as Facedrive, Lyft and Uber) driver licences need to successfully complete a third-party training program approved by the city and submit the certificate of completion, as a requirement of licence issuance. Drivers currently licensed also have to take this training program. This course is composed of five mandatory, self-paced, on-demand online modules. All are narrated in English and supported with written content, illustrative animations, videos, and content review quizzes. The average completion time for these five modules is four hours. In addition, course-takers must complete a mandatory online, instructor-led live class session, which will provide a summary content overview, opportunities for questions, and a 50-question online exam. This component is approximately two hours long and is available upon completion of the five online modules described below. You will be able to schedule your live video session and examination to complete the course and receive your certification as a Toronto Vehicle-for-Hire driver at the end of Module 5 through a link to Globe Driving Academy, a Driver Education Course Provider approved by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.
