Step by step in India:Can someone guide me how can I get a DL extract. Also how long will it take to get it.
1) Go to https://parivahan.gov.in/sarathiservice7/stateSelection.do
2) Select your state from the drop down.
3) Once the page refreshes automatically, there's a section called "Print License Details" on the left side. Select DL Extract Print Request.
4) Once filled with the correct details, submit, and you'll get an application number with the details of your request.
5) Have someone on your behalf take a physical copy of this and go to the local RTO in India along with a printout of a request letter (why you need this extract for - mention Canadian driving license as the reason) and copy of your existing license. Also carry copies of passport and visa just to be safe.
6) Go to the cash counter with this application and pay the fees. (Rs. 10 or 20)
7) Submit this to another counter - the person at the cash section will tell you which one.
8) Wait for 7-10 days and choose the pick-up option instead of courier.
9) Keep checking the application status on the same page which had the 'Print Dl Extract' section. There's a drop down section at the left top which says "apply online" and you'll notice "application status". Even if you don't get a text notification but your status is showing as 'complete', then head to the RTO and pick it up.
In Canada for Class 5 or G (depending on province) test and exchange:
1) Go to the drivetest center and submit the DL Extract page along with your passport and driver's license. Get the vision test and pay your fees. Clear the knowledge test. Make sure you get the years of experience added to the form because this will waive off the waiting period.
2) Once you get your learner's license, practice, practice. Once ready, take the full road test. If you're in Ontario, you have only a single chance at passing the G test. Failure means going back to taking a lower level G2 test and then retake the G.
