Graduated licensing System
In April of 1994 Graduated Licensing was introduced. All new drivers’ from that point on were and are required to follow the graduated licensing process. That means that new drivers earn full driving privileges in two stages. You will start out with a G1 license. To obtain one you must be at least 16 years of age and pass a vision and written test.
With a G1 license the wait time before you can go to the G2 road test is 12 months. If you take a Ministry approve Beginner Driver Education course you can reduce that time to 8 months. Kitchener Waterloo (K-W) Driving School Academy provides driving instructions and training according to MTO specifications in Cambridge Ontario (ON), Elmira, St. Jacobs, St. Agatha, Conestogo, Guelph, Preston, Galt, Bloomingdale and surrounding area. Residents of New Hamburg, Baden, Luxemburg, Petersburg, Wilmot, Waldau and all other Wellington County, Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge Ontario (ON) neighbouring communities please call and ask for our out of town driver training program. Being a G1 license holder means there are some fairly strict rules to follow. Learn more about them through the course we offer.
After the student has passed the driving test they then have the privilege of being a G2 licensed operator. A G2 license offers more privileges due to the amount of driving experience that person has gained while being a G1 licensed driver. There are still some driving restrictions for a G2 license holder.
The Graduated Licensing System has had much success in reducing injury and death for novice drivers.
It takes the average novice driver about five years to have the skills, knowledge, confidence and ability of an experienced driver.

Vehicles and Child safety (From Safe Kids Canada Websites):
TORONTO (April 26, 2007) - Safe Kids Canada announces the release of a new bilingual DVD entitled Kids that Click - Keep Your Kids Safe on Every Ride, tips for using car seats, booster seats, and seat belts safely. The new DVD is part of Kids that Click, a program that educates parents on how to choose and use car seats, booster seats, and seat belts safely, sponsored by the Hudson's Bay Company (Hbc). The DVD provides clear instructions on how to install car and booster seats and is endorsed by the Canadian Pediatric Society.
Along with visual checklists and medical testimonials, the DVD provides simple, step-by-step demonstrations of how to install car seats and booster seats and use the seat belt safely. Information in the DVD is suitable for all families across Canada.
"We know that many parents worry that they are not installing their child's car seat or booster seat correctly," says Allyson Hewitt, executive director of Safe Kids Canada. "This DVD gives parents the important information they need to keep their child safe in the car and they can watch it in the comfort of their own home."
The release of the DVD is in conjunction with the first United Nations Global Road Safety Week. It is expected that hundreds of initiatives will take place worldwide, and will be lead by governments, nongovernmental organizations, the United Nations, private sector companies, and others working to make roads safer.
Parents can get free a copy of this DVD by calling Safe Kids Canada toll-free at 1-888-SAFE-TIPS (723-3847) or by visiting www.safekidscanada.ca. The DVD will also be streamed on the Safe Kids Canada Web site later this spring.
Established in 1992, Safe Kids Canada is the national injury prevention program of The Hospital for Sick Children and is a national leader in educating parents and promoting effective strategies to prevent unintentional injuries and deaths of children.

Being a parent means that you never look at the world the same way again. It is easy to think that dangers lurk around every corner and parents spend much of their time worrying about their child’s safety and wellbeing. What parents probably don’t realize is that the greatest risk to children can be prevented through simple measures. The leading cause of death for Canadian children is injury. The good news is it doesn’t have to be that way. Many injuries can be prevented simply by using car and booster seats, bike helmets or by understanding a child’s abilities. Giving parents practical and reliable solutions to keep kids safe – that’s what we do.
Why aren’t they called ‘accidents’?
Research shows that the vast majority of what people usually consider to be accidents are really predictable and preventable events. That means people can take control and be proactive in preventing injuries – keeping their kids safe. We know that bumps and bruises are a normal part of childhood – we’re working to prevent the serious incidents that are the leading cause of death for kids in Canada.
