I currently don't have any driver's license. I'm moving to Ontario soon, and I'll probably want one. I'm wondering whether to get one in my current country, before moving to Canada, or to do it after moving.
In Ontario, to get a G2 license, which allows you to drive without needing someone experienced with you, requires a year of driving experience and has some additional restrictions, and a full driver's license requires two years of experience. On the other hand, in my current country you can get a driver's license just by completing a course and passing the required exams (without any experience requirement).
From what I learned, you can use a foreign driver's license for 60 days in Ontario, and then you need to get an Ontario driver's license. Does it also apply to international driving permit, or could I use the driver's license from my country alongside an international driving permit beyond this period, until I have enough experience to be allowed to take the test for Ontario driving license (i.e. one year for the G2 license, which is sufficient)?
