Your Manitoba Graduated Drivers License or GDL Manitoba

Understanding the Manitoba graduated license process

By working your way through the GDL Manitoba or Manitoba graduated license process, you will build strong driving skills and learn how to drive a car or light truck through a step-by-step approach, designed to reduce accidents. In order to become a fully licensed Manitoba car driver you first have to learn all Manitoba road signs and rules, as well as practice driving under supervision.

The Manitoba graduated license (GDL Manitoba) program allows a new Manitoba driver to gradually develop the skills and confidence to drive a car or light truck in any weather or road conditions. You will be able to correctly identify and respond to road signs, road rules and any possible road hazards you may encounter while driving in Manitoba.
