Obtaining a driving license in Ontario is a straightforward process that requires passing a series of tests and meeting certain eligibility requirements. Here is a brief overview of the steps involved:
- Eligibility: To be eligible for a driver’s license in Ontario, you must be at least 16 years old and pass a vision test. If you are under 18, you will also need to provide parental consent.
- Written Test: The first step in obtaining your license is to take a written test, which covers Ontario’s traffic laws and safe driving practices. You can study for the test using the Official MTO Driver’s Handbook or take a driver education course.
- G1 License: After passing the written test, you will receive a G1 license, which allows you to practice driving with a fully licensed driver in the passenger seat. You must hold this license for at least 12 months or 8 months if you complete an approved driver education course before you can take the next step.
- G2 License: The next step is to take a road test and obtain your G2 license, which allows you to drive on your own with some restrictions, such as a zero blood alcohol level. You must hold this license for at least 12 months before you can take the final step.
- Full G License: After holding a G2 license for at least 12 months, you can take a final road test to obtain your full G license, which allows you to drive without restrictions.
