Here you go:
Class G2
New drivers must hold a G2 licence for a minimum of 12 months before they can attempt the G2 road test. At this level, you have more privileges because of your driving experience. You may drive without an accompanying driver on all Ontario roads anytime. However, you are still required to:

maintain a zero blood alcohol level while driving;
ensure the number of passengers in the vehicle is limited to the number of working seat belts.

Book the very latest you possibly could on their automated phone thing(of course within reason like say 6mths after your G2 expires). Go to the MTO and have your liscence extended until your booked date. Go home and change your booking date to something earlier. Why do it this way? If you book the earliest date, and get your liscence extended then. if you happen to fail, that's it for your G2, however if you do it the way that was suggested, even if you fail, as long as you get another booking before the expiry then you're ok.

no I don't think there is any more driving course for G test. You still have to wait at least 1 year.

And i think that 1 year of driving experience worth more than any course.

coming from someone in the graduated license system now (almost out actually):

Minimum 16 years old -> G1 -> 12 months without driving school/8 months with driving school MINIMUM wait times -> G2 -> MINIMUM 1 year wait -> G

You can complete the graduated license system in as little as 20 months, and you have MAXIMUM 5 years

100% sure about this

If at all possible, try to do your G test. A few years ago I was in the same position, but I managed to get a good test date (I kept calling the testing centres since there are always cancellations) and passed with just 3 weeks to spare before my license expired.

WRONG on the last part. AFAIK, there is not a maximum (if there is, its a lot more than 5 years), thats a mistake a lot of people make.

This is what happens.

If you get your G1, and then say you get your G2 after a year, you have 4 years left to get your G. If you get your G2 after 2 years, then you have 3 years left to get your G. So far this is consistent with what you said.

Now, once you pass a certain period, I don't remember exactly when, but I think its around 3.5 years or so, when you go from G1 -> G2, you renew your license ($75) and you get 5 years from the date you got the G2. Same applies for G2 -> G.

The 5 years maximum is the amount of time you have to either take a test to get to the next level OR take the previous test to maintain your current level.

Dont think I've heard of this one before. Whats wrong with turning right on a yellow if you can turn right on a red as well?

yellow means stop unless its not safe to do so....so i had to come to a complete stop and than turn right. THe reason i didn't stop was it had just turned yellow and it i turned right i would be blocking the sidewalk stopping on the line (so pedestrians wanting to cross da street would have to go around my car), but the guy didn't care, apparently pedestrians don't mean $hit to him.. :evil: i stopped cause he said i should, but he failed me cause he said if he hadnt said stop i would've turned right.

so basically in my opinion it wasn't safe to stop but he disagreed and u can't appeal drivers tests :-0
