license reinstatment proceedure...10 yrs later

About 10 years ago I took the blame for an accident that I wasn't actually driving for. (EXTREMELY STUPID, I know, I know)
I did so without realizing I had a suspension on my license for an unpaid ticket, and was therefore fined pretty heavily. Within that time my licence expired (I had my G2).
Within the past week, I have finally paid off my fines and am planning to have my license reinstated and write my G1 test.
My question is this; If my license is being 'reinstated' do I have to wait 1 year after writing my G1, to do my G1 exit test? Or can I technically book my test sooner, since I was a previously licensed driver???

Thanks to anyone that might have some insight for me :D

Did they actually CANCEL your licence (third occurrence resulting in a suspension) or did it just expire?

If that's the case, you have to serve the full waiting periods according to MTO. But, visit a DriveTest centre and see what they say.

No, it wasn't cancelled, it just expired, and I have to reinstate it before I can write my G1.

Here's the Drive Test page that lists the information you're looking for: http://www.drivetest.ca/en/edu/ReadyNewcomer.aspx

It looks like if you're over the 10 year period, you're considered a new driver and will have the full wait periods. If you're under 10 years, the wait periods can be waived.

Edit: Sorry, just re-read your post and noticed you only had your G2. Looks like you will have the full wait periods.

Quote:
If your G2 licence has been invalid (expired, cancelled or suspended) for 3 years or more, you will be considered as a new driver and will be required to serve the mandatory wait periods at each level.
