As a new G1 licence holder you now have the ability to practice and build on your in-car driving skills under supervision. While operating a car in Ontario with a G1 licence, you must always adhere to the G1 licence restrictions. The G1 licence restrictions are there to ensure the safety of all Ontario drivers, be they beginning drivers or seasoned driving veterans. For additional information about G1 driving restrictions (like FAQ's), please see our G1 licence restrictions and requirements page.
A G1 driver must always be accompanied by a licensed driver (4+ years driving experience) and BAC level below 0.05.
Your G1 licence prohibits you from consuming any amount of alcohol when operating a car.
You must ensure every passenger in the vehicle is wearing a functional seat belt and the number of passengers does not exceed the number of functioning seat belts.
Nighttime driving, specifically between the hours of midnight to 5 am is prohibited for G1 licence holders.
A G1 driver can drive on local roads but is not allowed to drive on any 400 series highways (401,403,404 etc.) or high-speed expressways (QEW).
All G1 licence holders are encouraged to use this licensing stage to accumulate as much driving experience as possible.
We know that learning any new skill can be a difficult process, and we want to make sure we have the right answers to any questions you might have. For this reason, we've put together this G1 test questions and answers section, and also addressed some frequently asked questions about our Ontario g1 practice test series.

Getting your G1 licence means you now have the opportunity to practice behind the wheel of a car under the supervision of a fully licensed driver. If you take a ministry approved driver training course you can shorten your waiting period to the next licensing stage to 8 months, otherwise you must remain at the G1 stage for a full 12 months before you can apply for your G2 licence.
Your G2 license will require you to successfully pass the G2 road test, demonstrating strong driving skills.
By following the Ontario graduated licensing process, both new and experienced drivers can get their Ontario car drivers license in the shortest and most stress free way possible. Each GDL stage helps build and develop skills essential to be able to drive safely in all Ontario road and weather conditions, so it's important to properly complete each stage as you go through your licensing journey.
