My G1 Is Going To Expire Soon - Help!
i've been told so many different things about the whole driving test and expiry date thing that i'm super confused. i hope you guys can help me out!
my G1 is going to expire at the end of summer (i knew i shouldn't have waited that long to do my road test!) but i'm doing my road test in a few weeks so that i can get my G2.
if i do get my G2, i know that you have to wait at least a year before getting your G. however, my licence expires at the end of summer - does that mean that i'll have to go back to get my G1 all over again?
i had a friend who told me that after she got her G2, they somehow extended her expiry date to a year later so that she could get her G. she had to pay something like $60 for it. i was really lost when she was explaining to me so i'm not sure how accurate this is.
on the notice that i received in the mail, it says that:
"if you have already taken and passed a G1 road test within 12 months before the expiry date, you are not required to take the test again to requalify for your G2 licence. however, you will have to go to a drivetest centre and pay the applicable five-year licensing fee and have your driver's licence validated before the expiry date."
i phoned the customer service line and explained my situation. the women on the line said that IF i do pass the G1 road test to qualify for the G2 licence, i would have to pay $75.00 to renew the five-year licensing fee - and i would have 5 years to get my G.
(i was kind of talking gibberish when i was explaining my situation to her, so i'm not sure if she understood me well.)
can someone let me know how accurate this is? i'm so lost!
thanks in advanced.
