A novice driver is any individual who holds a class G1 or G2 driver’s license. Each classification of license incorporates different restrictions. For those who carry a G1 license, you are unable to drive a vehicle without the company of an individual who has been driving with their G license for more than 4 years. Furthermore, an individual with a G1 license cannot drive on any Kings Highway or drive between the night time hours from Dusk to Dawn.
G2 licensee’s carry different restrictions than those of a G1 license. G2 licensee’s cannot have any alcohol in their blood while operating a motor vehicle (applies to G1 licensees as well).
Further restrictions to G2 licensees for those under the age of 19 between the hours of midnight and 5am:
- In the first 6 months with your G2 license you are only allowed to carry one passenger under the age of 19.
- After 6 months with your G2 license and until you obtain your G license, you may carry 3 passengers aged 19 or under.
A G2 driver who is 19 or under may be exempted by the above conditions if they are accompanied by a full class driver in the front seat of the vehicle or if the passengers are members of your immediate family.
