And again, quite a long time without posts… hope this one will be useful for new immigrants in Canada.
Last week I decided to take a test for G1 driver license (so called student’s license that’d allow me to take a driving test and then buy a car). After a short research I’ve figured out that I’d need to take the following steps:
- Get a letter from Ukrainian consulate that’d proof my Ukrainian driver license validity.
- Go to a drivers test center, pay something about $100, get my vision checked and then take G1 test.
This is it So, on monday I went to Ukrainian consulate on Bloor Street West (next to High Park). I paid $40 for the translation and approval of the validity and it took them 3 days to finish the work. Procedure was pretty straighforward and I really liked the experience of working with Ukrainian consulate.
When I got the papers, I went to the test center in the Downsview Park. They checked my vision, asked me to pay $85 and gave me the test papers. In 15 minutes I was a proud owner of a G1 drivers license and now I’m going to prepare for the driving test.
Hope this helps someone.
