Ontario G2 license unrenewable, petition government for change
If you are not ready or confident to take the G test prior to your G2 license expiring, the G2 license is not renewable without repeating G2 road test again with the risk that if you fail the G2 road test you are automatically downgraded to G1, and lose your independent driving privileges.
Other provinces that have a license similar to Ontario G2 allow this license to be renewable like the class 7N in BC and class 5GDL in Alberta. In fact Alberta plans to eliminate the advanced road in the spring of 2023 so class 5GDL license holders will automatically be upgraded to full class 5 driving privileges after 24 months of satisfactory driving record.

While I am not suggesting we eliminate the G test if you believe Ontario’s rule to expire the G2 without testing is unfair given examiner’s arbitrarily scoring and unpredictable road test conditions often with other drivers not obeying the rules, you can try writing an email to the Minister of Transport Caroline Mulroney [email protected] or Premier Doug Ford dou[email protected] .
You can cite how losing your G2 will affect your livelihood, and how the demerit point system can adequately take unsafe G2 drivers off the road. Also cite how costly it is to prepare for the G test which does not really enhance road safety since you retain your G2 independent driving privileges until license expiry despite failing the G test. If enough people complain I think the government will be compelled to change the rules just like what happened in Alberta.
