What can I do with an Ontario G2 drivers licence?

When I got it the dude at the license office said I would have to avoid driving on the 400 series highways unless with a G driver in the car, however it doesn't say anything about that on the Ministry website - that rule seems only to apply to kids.

What's the scoop? Anybody?

Level Two lasts at least 12 months.At this level, you have more privileges because of your driving experience.

At Level Two:

You must not drive if you have been drinking alcohol. Your blood-alcohol level must be zero.
Each person in the vehicle must have a working seatbelt.
In addition, the following restrictions apply between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m. to G2 drivers aged 19 years and under.
In the first six months after receiving your G2 licence, you are allowed to carry only one passenger aged 19 or under.
After six months with your G2 licence and until you obtain your full G licence or turn 20, you are allowed to carry up to three passengers aged 19 or under.
Exemptions: The passenger restrictions for G2 drivers aged 19 and under do not apply if you are accompanied by a fully-licensed driver in the front passenger seat, or if the passengers are members of your immediate family (a guardian or those related to you by blood, marriage, common-law relationship or adoption).

After 12 months at Level Two, you may take a road test to qualify for full licence privileges. You must pass this test to get a Class G licence.

Note: It is now law that all young drivers 21 and under, regardless of licence class, must have a blood-alcohol level of zero.

Note: A restricted Class M licence for limited-speed motorcycle and moped drivers allows licence holders to drive only a limited-speed motorcycle and moped. You are not permitted to drive a limited-speed motorcycle or moped on any driver’s licence other than a class M licence (including M1, M2(L),M2, M(L) or M). For more information on how to obtain a restricted Class M licence to drive a moped, and graduated licensing requirements, please read the Official MTO Motorcycle Handbook.

My understanding is that the 400-series highway restriction for G2 drivers applies only to people under the age of 20. I'd phone the MTO to verify.

The dude at the ministry is an idiot.

don't drink and drive, and
get your G license before 5 years is up.
