How to maintain your BDE certificate for the insurance company ?

As of 2008, if you require proof of completion you will need to obtain a Driver License History (DLH) from the MTO for a fee of $12.  This is a Government issued document hence we do not have access to this info! However when we submit information to ministry we will update you on your registered email address.

The Student can visit any Service Ontario office in person with their Drivers License to have the certificate printed.
