Yes, the issues surround who you're driving with. G2 for less than six months, you can only have one passenger under 20 years old when driving at night. G2 for more than six months, you can have up to three passengers under 20 years old.

The Nanny State, yours to discover :)

iFly55 summed it up pretty well.

G1 drivers are not allowed on 400 series highways or expressways unless they are accompanied by a licensed driving instructor.

G2 drivers are allowed and encouraged to do so. Your G2 exit test will have a portion dedicated to it. Below is how you will be scored and deducted marks:

Entering
Traffic Check: No left/right mirrors, no blindspots
Signal: Late or never
Spacing: Not 2-3 seconds front/back/ out of acc. lane
Speed: too fast/slow/accelerate after acc. lane
Merge: Sharp/not to lane centre
Signal: on after 5 seconds

Driving Along
Traffic Check: not every 5 seconds
Speed: over limit/not traffic speed uneven/avoid obstacles
Spacing: under 2-3 seconds/sides/in blind spots/not inc. follow dist.

Exiting:
Traffic Check: No left/right mirrors, no blindspots
Signal: None/after exit lane
Exit lane: over line/after start of line/sharp turn to lane
Speed: slowed on expressway/spacing/rough slowing
Gap: under 2-3 seconds front
Signal: still on at ramp end
