Wrong date of birth on driving license. How to validate previous driving experience?

Hi all,

I have recently moved to Canada from Saudi Arabia. I am trying to give driving test for G2 but need to validate my previous driving experience first to waive off the one year waiting period. Unfortunately, the date of birth on my Saudi driving license is wrong. The officials didn't bother to put in my complete date of birth and just put in 01/01 for the month and day. The officials at drivetest didnt accept it and there is no way for me to get the date corrected as I have left the country for good. I cant afford to wait for a whole year without a license as my new job would require me to make visits to distant sites. Now I am stuck and not sure how to proceed further. Anyone here who has faced a similar problem and got it resolved? Any advice or feedback would be highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Abdul Ahad
