SGI will waive the basic ability road test if the customer can produce evidence that they have successfully completed an SGI-approved motorcycle training course. Customers entering the MGDL program will not be eligible for an SDR discount on their motorcycle until they reach Novice 2 and complete an SGI-approved motorcycle training course.
An “R” restriction (limiting the rider to motorcycles 400cc or less) will be assigned to riders in the MGDL program that use a motorcycle with a 400cc engine displacement or less during the basic ability road test (6 Endorsement/Learners). The restriction expires when the rider completes the MGDL program (graduates from Novice 2) and becomes a fully experienced rider. The engine size restriction will be waived for those who successfully complete an approved motorcycle training course or retest on a motorcycle with a larger engine size.
Planned for 2016 is a $500 driver’s licence premium for customers entering the MGDL program, which will be waived for customers that completed an SGI-approved motorcycle training program and the training fees refunded for those customers that graduate from the program offence, at-fault collision and suspension free. In order to qualify as SGI-approved motorcycle training, the training must have been offered by a certified driver training school, using an approved curriculum and the course delivered by certified driver instructors, or an equivalent program approved by SGI.
