Ontario’s Graduated Licensing System
What are all these “Gs”about? The simplest explanation.
You must pass a knowledge (written) test to acquire a G1 license or a learner’s permit. As a G1 licensed driver you must follow specific conditions, such as, always driving with an accompanied driver who holds a G license. If you have more than one year driving experience in another country (and a valid foreign driver’s license and the appropriate documentation that proves it) – you do not have to wait the mandatory 12 months – to apply for the G2 Road Test.

To obtain a G2 license you must successfully pass a City Road Test (referred to as G1 Exit Road Test). Applicants will be tested in city and residential areas along with specific maneuvers: parallel parking; 3-pt-turn; front or back parking; hill parking etc. Applicants must drive safely, have good observation skills and demonstrate a clear understanding of the rules and regulations. If successful, you will be issued a G2 license; with this license you may drive anywhere and at any time (including the highway) by yourself. Click here for information on our G2 packages.
Before your G2 license expires you must acquire a G license . To obtain a G license, you must successfully pass the Highway Road Test (referred to as G2 Exit Road Test). This test is more challenging and the expectations are higher considering applicants have sufficient driving experience in the city and on highways. It is strongly recommended G2 drivers do not wait until their license is about to expire to attempt this test and take some highway driving lessons to prepare. We offer training for all levels of licensing. Click here for information on our G packages.
