Graduated driver licensing

Regardless of age, all new drivers are part of the Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) program. This program ensures new drivers, regardless of age, get the support, skills, and experience they need to handle the complex task of driving. GDL improves road safety by creating a safe and controlled environment for all new drivers. As a GDL driver, you will hold one of the following operator’s licenses:

  • Stage One: Class 7 (Learner’s Operator’s Licence)
  • Stage Two: Class 5-GDL (Probationary Licence)

The following information highlights the key features of the Learner (Stage One) and Probationary (Stage Two) phases of the Graduated Driver Licensing program.
