Hi binny8,

In Mumbai you can get the licence letter.
You need to go to RTO Andheri W and catch hold of any agent or through any motor training school in your area the letter is called Licence extract.
All it says is that the licence is issued to --- from ---date to --- date and it mentions that there is no traffic violations found on our record.
This is the only letter that they issue hence I think this should suffice as it has the details of our licence and the start date and the end date and that no offences are found. it does not talk of any driving experience which they do not give in Mumbai.

Hi Pm48633,

Do you know how we can get the letter in Gujarat? I'm not sure who to visit or where to even go to get such a letter. I already got my IDP.

thanks

Does anybody know how we can get the letter of authentication of driving experience over 24 months from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Also the driver's license in Bangladesh is in English so I won't need to do any translation but would I need an international drivers license too?

Hi friends,

I am landing in Toronto in Aug. Would request if someone could guide me on getting Driving License extract from Delhi. I tried to google but couldn't get any relevant information.

My DL was issued in 2006 and is valid till 2026. It is in English. I also got myself the IDP a couple of days back. It doesn't talk about my driving experience either.

How do we approach the RTO for DL extract? Is there any procedure/forms to get it or is it an ad hoc letter?

The driving license extract is easily available from your respective RTO in Delhi. I just got it a few days back. They charge Rs. 50 for the extract. Just write a normal application asking for the extract, go to the transport inspector's office in the RTO, he will sign the application, then go to the cash counter with the signed application and your DL and pay Rs. 50 and get the relevant receipt, the cashier will then tell you about the counter no. that you have to go to for the extract. At that counter they would search the records and get the printout for the same, then you take this printout to the inspector again and he would stamp and sign it.
It is nothing but a printout showing their records pertaining to your DL with information like the issue and expiry date, address and class of vehicle etc. and it would then be stamped and signed by the transport inspector.

Any Syrians try to get their license. There is no way my husband can get "Written confirmation is an original letter from the original licensing agency (such as the ministry of transportation in your country or state), or from the Embassy, Consulate, or High Commissioner's offices representing the country"

He does have his old license though, (of course its expired)

Is it just better for him to apply as a new drivers? He has over 5 years of driving experience.

Depending on the province, he can try to explain the situation and hope they consider the issue date of his license. Worst case, they would allow him to take the basic road test and give him a GDL license which means he may drive alone but with a few restrictions. Unless he wants to get a taxi or a truck license, a GDL license will be fine for every day needs.

I would just want him to drive my car if there was an emergency. And then maybe later on when we are more settled he can buy his own car.
Let's hope Service Ontario has a heart!

One more stupid question. Can a GDL license eventually become a regular G license?

Yes, if he gets to take the basic road test and gets a G2 license, he can drive on that for a year and then challenge the advanced road test for a G license.

Driving Experience: More Than 2 Years in the Last 3 Years

Exchange your licence for a full Ontario Class G licence.
No road test required.
Present a valid driver’s licence, or one that has been expired for less than one year.
If indicated in the list above, provide a driver’s history or abstract to confirm the status of your licence and length of driving experience.


Is this some changes? Are they saying we can get full G right away?
