If you had less than a year till your license expires at the time of getting G2, they should have offered you to renew your license. The $75 fee is licensing fee for 5 years, nothing to do with test taking. They would also need to check your vision again before renewing. Why they didn't offer you that is beyond me, maybe they just didn't notice. Most likely you will have to go for another G2 test to renew your current license before you are able to go for full G.

No, currently the 4 month credit only allows you to take your G1 exit test (to obtain your G2 licence) in 8 months instead of 1 year.
Without knowing all of your details, it sounds to me like you should be eligible to renew your G2 licence.

You have to go to the office, probably the DriveTest Centre, to get your extension.JayLove06 wrote: ↑Sep 1st, 2012 8:17 amSorry to bump this.
Lets say my G2 expires September 9th but my drive test date is September 29th. Do I have to go to the Licensing office and get a temporary license or is it assumed that my license is extended until my date?
I have looked all over and can't get a concrete answer.

There is a lack of transparency and flexibility. So you get your g2 license and if it's slightly just before your fourth year you probably only get one shot at your second road test, if you fail, yes you need to start over. All that work has made your g2 Equal to the old 365 temp licence. That part is horrible and not just since there is no transparency.Pottertons wrote: ↑Nov 23rd, 2012 11:32 amYes, I can confirm this as i have just got off the phone with a DriveTest CSR.
My G2 was issued in March of this year and my actual license expires in December of this year.
Now, the rule is that you MUST have your G2 for 1 full year from the date it was issued, before you can book/go for your full G (G2 exit) road test. So in this case, I am not elegible to take my G road test until March of next year.
Being that my license expires before a year is up with a G2, I must go to a DriveTest center and pay a $75 fee in order to extend my license so that i am elegible to take the G test.
The person on the phone inquired as to why i was not charged this fee, so i am assuming that this is usually an automatic procedure for people in this situation. That said, they also stated that i can just go in and have it done. Just so long as you do it before the current expiry date on your license.
This process will defer you from having to start from scratch. The bonus about this method is that it extends your license for another 5 years rather than just up until a year after your G2 was issued.
Can't beat that really. I'm actually quite suprised that they do it this way.
Oh well, now i have time to save for a decent car.
