l asked them if i need my G license directly, one of them said its possible if you do it after oct 2010 (acc to him if i have us license older than 2 yr i can get my G license directly or else i ll get G2....)
l asked him my license ll expire in sep 2010 i.e. 1 year and 11 months....he said still thats ok i ll be able to get G directly even if its expired...


SECOND REPLY
l asked the same question and reply i got is i wont be able to get the G license if my US license is expired...

If you do not have a car or plan to buy a car anytime soon, I would suggest that you wait for 2 years to complete. In the meantime, find out if you can renew your US license when it is about to expire.

To get the license for the first time, they ask for the status (like the I-94 and visa), for renewal they do not (at least in some states). See the web site of the state DMV that issued you the license, for the information regarding the renewal.

ahh...you do not even have a SSN - then it could be an issue (How did you get it the first time then?)

Anyways, it will not hurt to wait. That way, you have a possibility to get a G license. If you surrender it now, you are sure to get a G2.

No...l have SSN rite now.. but its also gonna expire on the same day my visa will expire and my US license will expire...

http://www.drivetest.ca/en/license/ExchangeReciprocal.aspx
in this site , i cant understand the last red lines in CAPs...which says...

YOUR DRIVER’S LICENSE MUST NOT BE EXPIRED FOR MORE THAN A YEAR AT THE TIME OF EXCHANGE IN ORDER TO BE VALID. YOU MAY QUALIFY FOR EXPERIENCE ONLY DEPENDENT ON THE TIME OF EXPIRY.
