G2 Drivers & Speeding

G2 drivers found guilty of speeding more than 29km/h receive a 30 day licence suspension and insurance increases.

G2 Drivers & Speeding Tickets

The police nor the courts are required to tell G2 drivers of the hidden penalties for speeding tickets.

Class G1 Drivers

Class G2 drivers are considered to be “Novice Drivers” by the Ministry of Transportation.

Novice drivers have lower thresholds for speeding tickets and demerit points, that will suspend the drivers licence.

Speeding tickets can dramatically affect G2 drivers, as any conviction will result in two “lines” on the driving record.

Upon conviction of the ticket, the Ministry of Transport will send a letter to the registered address advising the Novice driver to surrender their drivers licence at a Service Ontario location.

The licence suspension starts from the date the driver surrenders the licence.

Any ticket for more than fifteen (15) kilometres over the limit has demerit points.
