Process for Obtaining a Class G1, Class G2, and Then a Full Class G Licence

For most people, the graduated licensing program takes approximately 20 to 24 months; however, you have up to five years to finish the entire process.

If you are approaching five years and you have not yet obtained your full Class G licence, you may choose to requalify as a Class G2 driver for an additional five years by successfully completing the Class G2 road test again (road test and licensing fees will apply). Once your novice licence has expired, you may need to start over at the Class G1 level.

The process for obtaining a full Class G licence, including the graduated licensing steps, is as follows.

  1. Study for the written knowledge test.
    Ontario’s Official MTO Driver’s Handbook is a great resource. In addition, many new drivers choose to take a government-approved beginner driver education (BDE) course. These courses are recommended but not required; however, those taking them are eligible to take their Class G2 road test after waiting only 8 months (instead of the usual 12 months). MTO maintains a listing of approved driving schools on their website.

Fees are set by MTO and are subject to change. Fees can be paid by cash, credit card (VISA, MasterCard, or American Express), debit card, certified business cheque, certified personal cheque, bank draft or money order (each made payable to Serco Canada Inc.), or travellers cheque (Canadian or American).

Please note that, if required, retests and subsequent attempts will incur additional charges.
