    I have a G1 driving licence in ontario. I know that i will have to wait for a period of 8 or 12 months before i can take my first road test. Someone told me recently that if I can prove to the ministry of transport that I need a driving licence for my job that I can take the road test ahead of time! Is there anyone in here that could maybe give me some advise on this topic??? It would make a huge difference to my pay check if I could drive.............

    Thanks to anyone that might be of any help on this topic, I hope to hear from you soon.

    Steve.

    I've never heard of that before, I don't think there is anyway that they can "acclerate" you Drivers License for Circumstances like that

    My Understanding of the Graded License system is

    G1-You can get this anytime *after* you turn 16 (My Brother got his a few days ago)

    Then, You have to wait 12 months to try for your G2

    *But* if you go to a driving school, Such as Young drivers, Not only do you get a deduction from your Car Insurance, you can go for your G2 after only 8 months.

    Then, after you get your G2 and can drive un-accopinied and on the 400 series Highways.

    Then you have to go for your Final G within 5 years or else you have to start all over again.

    Thats just my understanding that there are no special clauses where you can get your G2 earlier, If I were you I would call your Local DMV just to double check :)

    I've never heard of that before either :S One thing I wanted to add to what Cow_Girl said though. The 5 years you have to get your G license is from the time you get your G1, not your G2. I know that has caught many people including me by surprise.

    i have never heard of that either but the wait is a pain in the ass, i know. so the only advice i can give is get your m1 and buy a cheap motercycle for the remainder of the summer/fall cuz you can ride right away.
