Hi everyone! I have lived in Alberta for the last 8 months and did my drivers license in Calgary when I first arrived. I decided to do the basic instead of the advanced drivers license. We are now living in Ontario, and I will need to trade in my Alberta license for my Ontario license. The only thing is, is that I've been told that because I don't have two years of driving history on my Alberta license, that I will be getting a G2 and not a G license for Ontario. I really don't want to do yet another driving test in order to get my G. Does anyone have experience using another provincial drivers + their SA driving history (mine is 7 years) in order to get their G license? I was told by someone that this might work? Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Robyn
Hi All, I have read all the topics surrounding obtaining an Alberta Drivers License but I have honestly confused myself with the whole process and just want to check on a few things. I arrived in Canada on vacation, and have ended up staying. Because I didn't plan to stay, I don't have an international drivers license or an RTMC letter. I should have my international drivers in the next few days (it's being posted from SA). For the RTMC letter, do I simple write to the RTMC and request my driving history? With regards to obtaining a drivers license in Alberta, do I have to convert my SA license within 3 months of landing in order to have my SA driving history count? After my knowledge test, am I correct in saying that I hand in my SA license and after approval (I read 2 weeks?) I will be allowed to do my road test? I feel like the drivers is the most difficult thing I've had to adjust to in Canada. All other things have gone smoothly, except for this I was actually driving for a few weeks on just my SA license, no international license, as I was told that was fine. Then yesterday I was told that it's illegal to drive in Alberta without an international license. So now I'm trying to wrap my head around everything. I have been in Calgary since 17 May, so my 3 months is up on 17 August. Would I need to have done the learners test by then? I read on the Alberta Service website that one can drive with an international license for one year? But if I did that, then my SA driving record wouldn't count as I'm over the 3 month mark? Any advice/help would be so appreciated!! Robyn
