Q

I was just wondering when can you drive with a G1 licence? Can you drive at night?


A

New drivers of passenger vehicles in Ontario, Canada must learn to drive through the graduated licensing system. When you have a G1 licence, there are 6 conditions you must follow. These restrictions include:

  • maintaining a zero blood alcohol level while driving;
  • be accompanied by a fully licensed driver, who has at least 4 years driving experience, and they must have a blood alcohol level of less than .05 percent, in case they need to over as driver;
  • have only the accompanying driver in the front seat;
  • limit the number of other passengers to the number of working seatbelts;
  • refrain from driving on Ontario's 400 series or high speed expressways;
  • refrain from driving between midnight and 5:00 a.m.

So with a qualified accompanying fully licensed driver you can drive during certain night time hours but not after midnight or before 5:00 a.m.

    I would suppose that just as how the Canadian Sin Card is applicable in all provinces and territories, so would be a personal drivers license, health card and personal qualifications. With each province having its own "jurisdictional" rules, life is made very difficult for inter-provincial movement. The "bigger heads" need to sit down and iron out these basic issues which masquerades the whole idea of living in Canada. One should be able to move around with certain things that are standardized throughout the country. Why should each province behave like a new country?
