All You Need to Know About the G2 Licence in Ontario

Congratulations on passing your G1 road test and earning your G2 licence! This is a significant achievement and an exciting step towards gaining full driving privileges in Ontario, Canada.

With a G2 licence, you have more driving privileges than with a G1 licence, but there are still some restrictions in place to ensure your safety and the safety of others on the road.

Here’s what you need to know about the G2 licence in Ontario:

Driving Privileges

  • You can drive without an experienced driver in the car
  • You can drive on all Ontario roads, including highways
  • You can drive at any time of the day, in most cases


  • You must have a zero blood alcohol level while driving
  • You must carry only as many passengers as there are working seatbelts in your car
  • If you are 19 or under, there are additional restrictions to follow

G2 Drivers: 19 and Under

  • Between midnight and 5 a.m., you can only drive with one passenger who is 19 or under in your car for the first six months of G2
  • After six months, you can drive with up to three passengers 19 or under between midnight and 5 a.m.
  • The above condition does not apply if you have a fully licensed driver in the car with four years plus experience driving or your passengers are immediate family members, such as a parent, brother, or sister.

It’s important to note that breaking any of these restrictions can result in consequences, such as fines or even suspension of your licence. So, it’s essential to follow these rules to avoid any legal or safety issues.

If you’re looking to further improve your driving skills and knowledge, you can enroll in a driver education course or consider taking advanced driving courses. These courses can help you become a safer and more confident driver on the road.

Overall, the G2 licence is a significant milestone that provides you with more driving freedom and independence. Just remember to stay safe, follow the rules of the road, and always drive defensively. Good luck!
