How did you get D1E if you don't have C?
In Bulgaria you can't get D if you don't have 2 years expirience with C.

I have a ... Virginia learners permit. I dont know the specifics, but I cannot drive alone, and I have to have 45 hours driving time (at least 15 at night) before I can get a full license. (VA doesn't have a provisional license)

To my knowledge, VA also doesnt' have different licenses for different vehicles, except for commercial vehicles, and large trucks... but i dont know much about our drivers license system other than what i need to get a full, regular drivers license.

Snowmobile? Cool! Is it difficult to get such a license?

Ontario class "G". This is more or less equivalent to the European B, except for the allowed weights. But I think these classes mean nothing to the readers of this forum, so perhaps it will be more interesting if we also describe what goes into getting a license.

In Ontario:

At 16 years of age one can do a theory test and get a "G1". At this point one can immediately (yes, that's right!) drive a car with an accompanying driver with enough experience, though no driving on motorways unless with an instructor.

After a year (8 months if completed a driving school) one can do the first road test (very simple test, no motorway driving), and get a "G2". A G2 is essentially a full license, with some restrictions for teenage drivers and alcohol levels.

After another year, one can do a second longer road test that also involves some motorway driving, upon which one receives the full class G. At this point the licensing is complete, and the driver is allowed a small alcohol level in the blood.

If one does not get a G class within 5 years of getting a G1, the whole process has to begin again (with some exceptions). This is important because many people don't rush to get a G after getting a G2, since they essentially have the same driving privileges. A "G" class does usually help to lower insurance costs.

This is similar to the US, except that, as far as I know, it is not common there to have 2 road tests. In general, from personal stories that I heard, it is more difficult to get a license in Ontario than in many locations in the US, though in Europe it is still much harder than anywhere in Canada.

Like in the US, it is generally permitted to drive much heavier vehicles in Canada with a "regular" car license than in Europe and probably the rest of the world outside of North America. With the G license I'm technically allowed to drive a vehicle weighing up to 11 tonnes, which includes a small truck. In the US the weights are usually even higher.

The system here is:

R - rider (motorcycle)
C - car
LR - light rigid
MR - medium rigid
HR - heavy rigid
HC - heavy combination
MC - multi-combination (road trains and B-doubles)

I have a class C.

Class D: Non-commercial driver, can drive any vehicle that does not require a Commercial Drivers License (CDL).

My restriction is designation B...I have to wear glasses when I drive.

It is somewhat similar, although when you pass your first test when you are 16-17 years old, you don't have to take another one after that.

Pretty much (and this depends on state, I am using CT as an example here), you can get a license when you are sixteen but there are restrictions, like not driving at late night or having many teenagers in your car without an older person in it, and there is zero tolerance for driving when drunk until legal driving age (0.08 BAC after 21). It is not considered a "full license".

When you turn 18, all the restrictions are lifted and you have a "full license", except for drinking. Many people just wait until they turn 18 so they don't deal with all those restrictions, also having ANY kind of drivers education or a learners permit isn't even required after you turn 18 as well.
