First time driver question
I've never had a full license, and actually, only recently (within 2 years) got my G1. I've lived in downtown Toronto for about 10 years and never thought about driving, ever lol. But now I'm in the burbs and its hitting me about how much easier having a car would make my life. As an example: Bus to work = 1.5 hours. Drive = 22mins
So queue to my question. I'm planning on doing driving school (gonna feel old for sure). But if/when I pass and everything is good, how hard is insurance going to kill me. I'm Male, 30+, new driver.
Also I'm looking into a used car, lease most likely. Don't want to dump a lot of coin on a first car, but also don't want to spend cash either. Does car options matter with insurance? How about car dealerships, do they care if I don't have a full G? When going for my G1 exit exam (the driving test to get the G2) do I need my own car?
Thanks in advance!
