Your over weight and should have a D, if you ever get pulled over and they bring out the scales, but its not likely to happen, but with that said, I would be more scared of the insurance company if anything should happen.
I have G but my bus weights in at just under 9000kgs

I actually had this brought to my attention and have cancelled a trip until I get my D.

The D requirement in Ontario is a bit of a pain (I don't disagree that you should have a higher class license to drive a large truck but I really don't think it should be a commercial license).

The written part of the test isn't particularly difficult but you do have to remember a bunch of 'commercial only' things. Also some of the questions on the D written test are out of the G book (since you're expected to know both).

The road test is not that big of a deal except that I failed on my first occasion because I didn't know there was a time limit for the circle test. Not sure if all test centers are the same but in Ottawa you need to complete the circle test in about 15 minutes (it's actually 20 minutes to do the circle test and backing up test in the back lot (which takes about 5 minutes). I wasn't aware of this the first time I did it and ended up going over. For the backup test, you must get out of the vehicle to check if there's anything behind before backing up (even if you ask the instructor to spot for you and you have a backup camera).
