What happens if you are a G1 driver, and get caught driving between the hours of 12 am to 5 am?


As you know with a G1 license in Ontario, Canada one of the conditions of your license level is that you must not drive between 12:00 midnight and 5 a.m. in the morning. The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) notes that staying off the road when the risks are highest is a good way to avoid collisions.

Half of the fatal collisions involving new drivers happen at night. People are tired, it is harder to see, and those drivers who break drinking and driving laws usually do so late at night. These factors put lives in danger, especially for new drivers who are still developing the skills they need to avoid collision

The Ministry of Transportation DriveTest site notes that if the police stop you for any reason, the officer checking your licence will see that you are a Level One or Level Two driver. If you are charged with and convicted of breaking any of the conditions or restrictions connected to your licence type, your licence will be suspended for 30 days. It appears you will need to physically turn in your license for this time period and also have to pay a reinstatement of around $150 to get your G1 back.

To find out if there is a fine, demerit points or a delay in being able to obtain a G2 license if you are caught driving during the restricted time period, check with the Ministry of Transportation (MTO).
