Source For: 4 Dots On G License Meaning You Can Be The Accompanying Driver To A G1.

by: Prenusha Pillay on

Hi there,

Does anyone have the official link / reliable source to the information whereby if you have 4 dots on your G license you can be the accompanying driver?

We have recently moved to Canada and my husband has his G license and I the G1 so wanted to clarify that I can indeed drive with him as the accompanying driver.

He has more than 10 years of international experience but only 3 months of Canadian driving experience. He has 4 dots on his G license (no red line though).

The previous link to the drivetest website no longer works. I cannot find this on the new website.

Any help is most appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
