The DriveTest examiner will only give you directions on what to do. As a road test applicant, it is your responsibility to complete the requested action when it is safe to do so. This driving test criterion is the uniform standard by which the driving skills of all G2 driver’s license applicants are evaluated.
Knowing what to expect on your G2 road test will help you better prepare for the road test and will increase the chance you will pass the road test the first time. Remember, a G2 road test is just a DriveTest examiner observing your driving on a route they determine for you. The information provided in this course will help you earn what a DriveTest examiner is looking for in a G2 road test in Ontario. The sections match the road test checklist used by a DriveTest examiner during a G2 road test.
Before the G2 road test starts, the DriveTest examiner will explain how he or she will provide directions during the road test.
Remember, the DriveTest examiner cannot help you during your G2 road test. The examiner is there to observe your driving. Make sure this is clear and that you ask any questions BEFORE the road test starts.
At the end of the G2 road test, the DriveTest examiner will give you a copy of the G2 road test checklist, provide you with a summary, and explain areas where points were assigned.
You can book your G2 road test after meeting the mandatory waiting periods and getting enough experience. To book your G2 road test, you will need a driver’s license number and the ability to pay the required fees.
There are three ways to book your G2 road test appointment in Ontario:
Make sure you arrive at least 30 minutes early for your G2 road test with the vehicle that you are going to use for the road test. The MTO or DriveTest doesn’t provide a vehicle for the test. Road tests take place all year round and in any weather conditions unless canceled due to extreme weather conditions. If the weather is bad, check the Service Disruptions page on the day of your test for updates.
You are required to turn off any in-vehicle recording devices or they should not be facing the passenger area. The DriveTest examiner could declare your test “out of order” if you refuse to follow this requirement and you will also lose 50% of your road test fee and will have to pay the outstanding 50% to schedule your next road test. Only you and the driving examiner are allowed in the vehicle during the road test. Pets are not allowed and passengers will have to wait in designated areas. Make sure you have your glasses or contact lenses if you need to wear them to drive. You also need to bring your current driver’s license.
The G2 road test is also called the “city test” or “G1 exit road test” and usually takes about 20 minutes to complete. If you pass your road test, you will be granted a Class G2 driver’s license.
