Hi guys, I'm new here but been riding for a few years now. Here's my story:
I am from New Brunswick. They don't (or didn't when I got my licence) have a graduated licence system. They had a 2 class system based on cc's of the bike you tested on. I have an "open" licence in New Brunswick. I took the MSF safety course and passed the test after the course.
A few months later I moved to Toronto. They have a graduated system in Ontario. Since I only had my licence for a few months, they would not give me a full bike licence in Ontario. Instead I got an M2 which only has a few restrictions (0 tolerance alcohol...) and has a 5 year time limit.
This fall I am moving to Burnaby for school. I am aware that BC has a graduated licence system as well. Am I going to be held in the middle of the system again, or do I have to restart? Would my NB open licence be accepted? Any one have any experience with this?
As an aside, it was an abitrary move by the DMV in Ontario to NOT give me my full licence. My girlfriend transferred hers in Hamilton instead of Toronto where she was working and she got her full M licence, no questions asked. She passed her licence test in NB at the same time as I did. Its a load of crap.
Anyway, as far as I can tell its a money grab. Just wondering if I have any options to not have to get my licence and retest a second time.
Thanks for any help or info,
