Are (가다) "간다" and (가다) "가요" the same level of honorific?

'간다' is formal but not polite speech (I don't mean to imply that it's impolite, jus that it's not marked as deferential to the listener). '가요' is polite but not formal speech. [-polite][-formal] 가 [+polite][-formal] 가요 [-polite][+formal] 간다 [+polite][+formal] 갑니다

Nope, it is not at all. 가다 (사전에 나오는 표준형) 예를 들어서 보여 드릴게요. 선생님이 가(간다) < 선생님이 가요 < 선생님이 가셔요(가세요) < 선생님께서 가세요(가셔요) < 선생님께서 가십니다 More right side would be more honorific way.
