Cars Road Tests

Are you ready to take the next step towards getting your Ontario Class G driver’s licence? At our Book Driving Test, we make it easy for you to demonstrate your driving ability and embark on your journey as a licensed driver by scheduling a test date. Whether you are aiming to obtain your first driver’s licence or looking to upgrade an existing one, our Cars Road Tests service is designed to help you achieve your goal.

Two Types Of Road Tests

Ontario traffic law has introduced two types of Class G and Class G2 road tests with a graduated licensing program for cars, small trucks, and vans. These tests allow new drivers to assess their ability to be professional drivers and apply safety instructions while driving. Ontario usually has these tests two times a year.

Class G2 Road Test

Class G2 road test evaluates basic driving skills, generally called an initial “city test,” and usually takes 15 to 20 minutes. If you successfully cleared the test, you will receive a Class G2 licence.
If you are unaware of basic driving skills and have never driven before, you will be instructed to gain driving experience before you qualify for this test. If you take an MTO-recognized driving school course, your eligibility conditions may be reduced by four months.

Class G Road Test

Class G road test evaluates more progressive driving skills, including a highway route, and usually takes 25 to 30 minutes. If you successfully cleared the test, you will receive a Class G licence.
After getting a Class G2 licence, you must start practising for the Class G driving test for at least a year.

Booking Road Test

When you have fulfilled the basic mandatory waiting times and have enough knowledge, you can book a road test. To book your road test, you will need a driver’s licence number and the capacity to pay the fees. New drivers in the graduated licensing program may not book a road test after their driver’s licence expiry date.
The Class G road test has been temporarily adjusted to full-time to assist in clearing the backlog of automobile passenger road tests caused by COVID-19 limitations and closures. The normal Class G road test will remain open at part-time Travel Point sites.
The Class G road test will not include the following features that are yet covered in the Class G2 road test until further information is provided:
  • Roadside parking
  • Parallel parking
  • Driving a three-point turn in a residential community
The examination will still include all of the basic features, such as:
  • Driving on major highways and motorways, including merging on and off, maintaining proper speed and distance, signalling, and more twists, curves, and lane change intersections
  • Driving in commercial zones

Preparing for Your Road Test

To prepare for your road test, you can check Beginner Driver Education (BDE) courses and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO). Remember, Beginner Driver Education (BDE) is optional, but the Ontario Government recommends the Ministry of Transportation (MTO). Before taking any Class G road test, make sure you have all the knowledge that the Official MTO Driver’s Handbook has mentioned.
We also recommend you start practising your basic and professional skills at various times of day as per your licence permits and driving conditions:
  • Starting your car, stopping, and turning back and forth.
  • Know traffic signs and signals.
  • Can drive with Passing vehicles, including bicycles, and driving in passing lanes.
  • Travelling through controlled and uncontrolled junctions.
  • Parking your car, reversing, and three-way turns. Forecasting risky conditions and being ready for them.
If you are taking a Class G road test on a highway test, you must report your driving knowledge to ensure that you have spent adequate time on highways to proceed. You must report how many spans in the last three months you have driven on a highway with a limited speed of at least 80 km/hr. The 400-series highways include:
  • Highways 400 to 410, 416, 417, 420, 427
  • Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW)
  • Don Valley Parkway (DVP)
  • Gardiner Expressway
  • E. C. Row Expressway
  • Conestoga Parkway
To qualify for the road test, you must have travelled on one or more of these mentioned roads at least five times in the last three months. It would help if you also mentioned the average length of these tours. Please be sure you have the necessary highway driving experience, or your appointment will be dismissed, and you will be charged 50% of the road test fee.
The vehicle you use for the road test must be of Class G. Make any necessary repairs and confirm the vehicle fulfils the minimum criteria. It is in good functioning order in advance. If the car does not match the standards, your road test may be labelled “out of order.”

Scheduling And Arriving On Test Day

To schedule your road test, fill out the form on the Book Driving Test website. After getting the scheduled test for your road test, make sure to appear at least 25 to 30 minutes before the test begins. If you are worried about weather situations, then don’t worry. Tests are always conducted on scheduled dates unless there is a risky situation. The test centre, as well as Book Driving Test, always informs you if there is some situation that occurs. If the weather is extreme, the test centre will reschedule or postpone your road test for safety.
When you appear for your road test, park your car in the parking area and visit the centre to check-in. Most driving test centres have a self-service for check-in; talk to a customer representative if yours still needs to. After checking in, sit back in your car and wait until the Driver Examiner comes. If your Driver Examiner does not arrive within 30 minutes of your scheduled time, return to the centre and proceed to Counter A.
No pets or members other than the driver examiner can sit in the car during a road test. If any family member or friend is with you, they will be asked to wait in waiting areas. To appear for the test, always bring the necessary things with you.
  • Your car must be in good condition.
  • If your eyesight is weak and you wear glasses or lenses, bring them with you.
  • Your car must have enough gas to take the test.
  • Your current driver’s licence.
  • Hard copy of your road test confirmation email.
  • Cash for test fees.
Initially, the driver examiner will demonstrate the test, so if you have any questions, ask them before you begin. The driver examiner may stop or restrict the start of the test if:
  • Your vehicle needs to be in better working order.
  • You show any signs of alcohol or drugs.
  • Your driving skills need to improve to finish the test without risking safety.
  • While taking the test, the examiner will evaluate your skills according to set criteria and complete a form/scoresheet.

Following The Road Test

Following the road test, the examiner will provide a concise, verbal overview of your skills. If you want a scoresheet, you will be provided within 13 months of the road test date. After successful completion, you will receive a temporary driver’s licence, valid for 90 days or until your permanent/official driver’s licence photo card arrives.
If you are unsuccessful, the score sheet will show you where to improve. After more practice, you can make an appointment to take the test again. You may take several road tests to pass, provided your driver’s licence is valid. Generally, you must wait at least ten days between tests. Applicable road test fees apply.
