Hi,

I have Alberta Class 5 GDL. Is it possible to exchange it for Ontario drivers license, if it is would I be getting G2 or Full G, and do I have to take any tests?

I've seen official web but it's confusing. I have 1 year on Class 7 + 1.2 years on Class 5 GDL, ie. more than 2 years of driving experience.

Thanks.

My daughter went the other way moving to Alberta with a G2 after a couple years of driving and she was converted to a Class 5 GDL. I would assume you'd transfer to a G2 and would have to road test within the expiry period to a full G. It would probably be a five-year license.

Hi
So what happened in the end? Can you please tell us? I am moving to Ontario next month and I have held my class 5 GDL in Alberta for 2 weeks. I can't get an answer anywhere about what will happen to my licence, and if it will be exchanged. Thanks
