Test Overview: Complete Guide To Ontario Driver’s License Tests
An Overview Of The Driver’s Test Process!
Preparing for the government driver’s test comes in three stages: the vision, the knowledge
and the road test. Each test is at any DriveTest
Centre across Ontario, not just the city/town where you live. Let’s break down these tests to
help you prepare to pass each stage.
There is no need to make an appointment for the vision or written test, but it would be wise to
ensure you go early enough in case there is a line-up and
you won’t get a chance to do them before the office closes. Appointments for the road test
portions are required. Road tests are booked at any
DriveTest location, or a much easier way is to book it online. Tests can be in English or
French, with results determined within minutes of
So, what happens if you’re not successful on the written test? You can take the test as many
times as you need to pass. A pass
means you have made four or fewer errors on the 20 sign questions and four or fewer errors on
the rules of the road questions. Since there
are a few different written tests to take, studying Trubicars G1 Practice Tests is always a wise
Vision tests determine if you have the minimum eyesight required to safely drive a
vehicle, and evaluate your visual acuity (VA),
which is the sharpness of vision, measured by the ability to distinguish letters and
numbers at a certain distance, according to
the fixed standard. It also measures your horizontal visual field, which is your
peripheral vision. These vision tests only take
a few minutes as you look into a device at the DriveTest Centre.
If the vision test is unsuccessful, you will be given a form to take
to your optometrist or ophthalmologist to determine if corrective lenses are needed.
This type of test is monitored by a staff member at a DriveTest Centre to
ensure the tests are being done honestly among the test takers. Anyone found cheating or
disrupting any test takers will be asked to leave the
DriveTest Centre, receive an unsuccessful mark on the written test, lose their test fee, and
wait until the next day to rewrite the knowledge test.
Road tests for vehicles, including cars (G2 road test and G road test), vans, and small trucks,
as well as motorcycles and
commercial vehicles, are completed to
assess your driving skills according to the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO)
criteria. You will
need to bring your vehicle for the road test. During the road test, you will be driving with a
driver examiner as an observer. While
they observe, driver examiners will use a set of predefined road test routes and a variety of
driver tasks. They will use forms and
scoresheets, sometimes on a tablet, to evaluate your ability to apply the rules of the road as
needed while safely operating a vehicle
and demonstrate your ability to drive safely.
After completing the road test, if you have any concerns regarding the outcome of a test,
ask the driver examiner for clarification. Requesting a copy of the scoresheet is a good thing
to do before the clarification. If you
require further assistance, ask to speak to one of the supervisors at the DriveTest location
where you had the road test. As for the
written test, you can attempt the road test as often as it takes until you pass. Additional fees
will apply for each attempt.
