Graduated licensing System
In April of 1994 Graduated Licensing was introduced. All new drivers’ from that point on were and are required to follow the graduated licensing process. That means that new drivers earn full driving privileges in two stages. You will start out with a G1 license. To obtain one you must be at least 16 years of age and pass a vision and written test.
With a G1 license the wait time before you can go to the G2 road test is 12 months. If you take a Ministry approve Beginner Driver Education course you can reduce that time to 8 months. Kitchener Waterloo (K-W) Driving School Academy provides driving instructions and training according to MTO specifications in Cambridge Ontario (ON), Elmira, St. Jacobs, St. Agatha, Conestogo, Guelph, Preston, Galt, Bloomingdale and surrounding area. Residents of New Hamburg, Baden, Luxemburg, Petersburg, Wilmot, Waldau and all other Wellington County, Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge Ontario (ON) neighbouring communities please call and ask for our out of town driver training program. Being a G1 license holder means there are some fairly strict rules to follow. Learn more about them through the course we offer.
After the student has passed the driving test they then have the privilege of being a G2 licensed operator. A G2 license offers more privileges due to the amount of driving experience that person has gained while being a G1 licensed driver. There are still some driving restrictions for a G2 license holder.
The Graduated Licensing System has had much success in reducing injury and death for novice drivers.
It takes the average novice driver about five years to have the skills, knowledge, confidence and ability of an experienced driver.
