You have to pay some relatively small fees to apply for your temporary learner's permit and actual license, and if you plan on taking your final license test before you're 18, you'll have to pay for driver's ed classes, which run a couple hundred dollars.

While you have your temps, you can drive with a licensed parent or guardian while you're still 15, and when you turn 16 you can drive with any licensed person you know 21 or older. You don't have to be insured on their cars to drive with your temps, but once you get your actual license, you will have have insurance, whether you're driving alone or with a parent.

If you share a car with a parent, you can do a combined insurance policy so you both pay less than if you each had your own car.

I don't know about the criminal/academic record. I don't think it really affects your ability to apply and get your license, but many insurance companies will consider that sort of thing when coming up with a price for your policy.

Of course, all this is how it works in the United States. I don't know exactly how it's set up in Canada.

well it depends. if you do drivers ed u have to pay around $500. im too cheap for that lol so im doing the easy 20 dollars one. all you do is send them a mail with the form and 20 dollars inside it. after a week or so they send you a package with a big form and a handbook. you study from that and just go get a permit test. PS. you are going to need a gurdian who has an almost clean driving record. like jesus said, this applies in US, dont know about canada

Well my mom did have a small accident once in 2002 other than that she has never been in any trouble while driving. Would I be allowed to drive with my mother in that case?

I have no idea how it works in other countries, but they allow anyone to have a licence over here pretty much.

I have a provisional, but I havent started learning yet, so it's gonna be a little while before i get my full licence.

Wouldnt be a problem unless that small accident was a DUI and your mother lost her license, then it would be a problem.

Being a fellow Canadian, I can give you a little advice on this, but I think it may differ from province-to-province. In Ontario, you start off with the G1, a $100 written test that grants you ability to drive with someone who has at least 5 year of driving experience. Other conditions include not driving at night and having 0% blood alcohol or something damn close. After the G1, you go for the in-car G2 test, after which you pretty much have free reign. Afterwards you take one last test I believe to get the final level, G. Also, driver's school lowers the required time between the G1 and G2 as well as lowers future insurance costs.

School and priors shouldnt matter.

To drive your own car you or your parents will need to insure your car. If its your parents' car, then they are already insuring it, shouldnt be a problem unless you're pulled over and then you say its your parents' car and its all good.

I can drive when my dad is with me. He totaled 2 cars, almost got killed in a car accident, and got a few speeding tickets.

I know in the US it costs $25 for the permit, and you have take a short test before you get it. Then you have 6 months to get 50 hours of driving time. After 6 months and 50 hours, you can get your junior license. Your junior license lets you drive by your self untill 11pm. You get your senior license at 18 or 17 and a half if you take a DOT driver's ed course.

I am going to my license in april(just in time for prom, w00t). Since I am taking a drivers ed course, I can get my senior licence a month or 2 later.

No there was no DUI in my mothers case, she says her insurance went up too the roof ever snice though. But anyway Thats some damn good news for me, I do live in Ontario :)
