Hi All,

we are moving to Ontario on PR in 2 weeks from USA. I have 1 year and 2 months of driving experience in UsA and still hold a valid Indian Driving license (10 years of experience). my question is, when I go for exchanging my USA DL , will they give me a G2, until I qualify for the Road test for giving the G test?

I want a G2 because we are moving our car from the states to Ontario.

( This is in case I do not provide my Indian driving history so that I can waive the G exam wait time).
Thanks much in advance.

Get a certified copy from the US DMV of your driving records. You can then exchange your US DL with the driving record for an Ontario G license. You will only have to take the eye test. No other test will be required.

1. The OP has less than a 2 year license in the US.

Less than 2 years driving experience (with exchange)
You need to take:

  • an eye test, when you apply
  • one road test (the G2 road test)
You will not be able to do the G2 road test right away. You need to wait until you gain two, full years of driving experience. For example, if you had a licence for 21 months in your home province, state or country, you can do the G2 road test after 3 months in Ontario. After you pass the G2 road test, you get a full licence.

S/he would have to prove the Indian experience, whether Ontario accepts it, is another matter.

Hi,

If you surrender your US licence then you will get a 5-year G2 licence without any road tests.

I did mine last week and had received G2 licence. I had a valid licence with only 6 months driving experience.

Hello, Just wondering how it went with your Ontario Driver's License exchange process.
I am in the same situation as you. I have my US New York Driver's License for 1 year and 5 months, however, I have more than 5 years driving experience with my valid Myanmar (Burma) license. I am wondering if they take into consideration of US + Myanmar (or India) driving experience when they process the G (full) license, in your case?
Please let me know. Thank you.

India and Myanmar history won't be considered for full G license. Also, you need 2 years of driving history to get full G license.
