Hello,

I got G2 driver license in 2012.

During 2012 to 2014, I tried to take G2 drive test (Highway road test) but failed.

Then I moved to Vancouver in 2014 and got full BC driver license (because I have 2 yrs driving experience).

I would like to know if I move back to Toronto, do I still need to take G2 test before getting the full license or can I just use BC driver license to exchange Ontario full license?

I have 2 yrs driving experience in BC but my G2 license has not yet expired till 2017.

If I can use BC driver license to exchange Ontario full license, how can I show my driving experience?

Thank you!

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

Ontario has licence exchange agreements with certain provinces, states, and countries.

You can exchange an out-of-province licence for an Ontario licence, if you are re-locating from any Canadian province or territory.

To exchange your licence for an Ontario driver’s licence, you need to apply in-person at a DriveTest centre.

You can find some detailed information in our Settlement.Org I have a driver's licence from another province in Canada. How do I get an Ontario driver's licence? article.

You can also find some detailed information on the DriveTest website in the Licences for Out-of-Province and Out-of-Country Drivers section.

You may also want to contact the DriveTest centre directly at: 1-800-489-8450. Live operators are available on Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
