Hi.

I know the Ontario Govt announced that expired, or soon-to-expire, licenses would still continue to work for "some time". Nevertheless, I have a rather peculiar situation.

Details:
-- My G2 license will expire in December 2020.
-- I failed my G test twice and was scheduled for the 3rd attempt on May 27, 2020 (which is obviously not going to take place).

Before Corona, I was aiming at getting my G by any means (by failing as few times as possible) between May and December; that is 7 months, which is ample time. But now that Corona is pervasive, it is hopeless to think about the test at the moment. But the indefinite delay will be shrinking the 7-month validity as months pass by!

What is going to happen when things are back to normal and tests resume? Would MTO return my 7 months or just give me a single chance to attempt G? I am paranoid and do not wish to start all over again from G1 if I fail that single chance.

Please respond with some clues on how the lost time would be accounted for. Thanks.

When Drive test opens try to book appointment at Lindsay venue. Its easier to get G licence over there as the maximum highway speed is just 80 km and further no traffic along that highway. But you should go there earlier and practice on the streets there. Its a small town with little traffic. I got mine over there in first attempt.
