    We have 3 tests that we have to pass to get our full license.

    G1 is at 16+, and is written. Need to drive with someone who has had a license for 4 years. No highway driving.**

    G2 is a driving test, but only covers in town and parking basically. Can now drive on your own, and can now start driving on highways.

    G (full license) is the second driven test, and it includes highway driving...so being able to merge properly on and off ramps and such.

    If you want to get a motorcycle license...it is the same thing. Written and one driven test (possibly two...not 100% sure on that).

    At each stage, you have restrictions, that get lightened as you go.

    Graduated Licensing

    **By highway driving, I mean that you are not allowed on certain highways, and they are all 3 or more lane highways. You can drive on a 2 lane highway, as long as it is not one of the listed ones.

    The drivers examiner will keep their hand on the emergency brake at all times. If you get into a bad situation they yank it up and in theory that's supposed to stop the car. Hence why I failed my first test, because the e-brake wasn't strong enough. They do a pre-inspection that involves putting the e-brake on and giving the car some gas to see how much it moves. :)

    What do they do with cars that don't have an e-brake in the middle then?

    I'm so glad I took my test in Nova Scotia.

    1. Take a written test to get your learners license.
    2. Complete an accredited driver training program.
    3. Wait 6 months from the date you got your learners license.
    4. Take your road test to get your 'newly licensed' drivers license.

    The 'newly licensed' drivers license doesn't have any restrictions in terms of highways or where you can go, however, you must be off the road between 00:00 and 06:00 unless you obtain a special permit to get to/from work. Then you wait two years, walk into the Registry of Motor Vehicles and they give you your full license with no restrictions. There is no additional test. :)

    The car must have an e-brake in the middle or you can't take the test.
