Road Rules Driving School is a Ministry-Approved (Ministry of Transportation of Ontario) Beginner Driver Education Course Provider that provides Driver Rehabilitation and Remedial courses.

Port Hope

Road Rules Driving School is a Ministry-Approved BDE (Beginner Driver Education) Course Provider, who also provides Remedial Driving Programs and Driver Rehabilitation. Based in Peterborough, it serves clients from Toronto to Belleville, Fenelon Falls to Bancroft, and locations in between.


Road Rules has graduated thousands of beginner drivers since its inception in 1998 (starting as Partners in Driver Training in Bancroft, Ontario). Beginner drivers have the opportunity to take a full driver education course (20 hours of in-class, 10 hours of homework and 10 hours of in-car training), or to take any number of private in-car lessons. Instructor's vehicles may also be rented for the road test, conditional upon a satisfactory private lesson if the student has not already completed the full driver education program.

Upon graduating from the Road Rules BDE program the student will be able to sit the G2 drivers test after 8 months instead of 12 months. The Driver's License History provides proof of successful completion of and graduation from a BDE course and is widely recognized by the insurance industry as proof of course completion.

As a company, we aspire to impress upon drivers that safe driving is a lifelong commitment, a serious responsibility and a great personal freedom. It is the only independent driving school in Peterborough to have its own curriculum approved by the MTO


Often times a medical condition can have an impact on one’s ability to drive safely. These changes can be cognitive (affecting our decision making), physical (which can lead to a need for adaptive driving equipment), and/or emotional (anxiety). If you have concerns about a family member and their driving, we can offer an on-road assessment of their functional driving abilities. If you are a physician or other medical practitioner and unsure if you should notify the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) or send your client for a full functional assessment, we can conduct an on-road assessment and provide you with a written report and recommendations. We are also able to facilitate a full MTO-approved functional assessment (in-clinic and on on-road), if required. We also specialize in individual rehabilitation sessions for people struggling with driver and/or passenger anxiety. Contact Janet Rivers at or call or text 705-868-6878.


Charged with Impaired Driving, Stunt or Road Rage? Is the MTO requiring you to take a Defensive Driving Course (DDC) or Driver Improvement Course (DIC)? We offer 1-day educational courses that are approved by lawyers, Crown Attorneys, the courts and the MTO. For more information, please see our Remedial Courses page.
