Road Tests/Driving Exams
There are two types of road tests that you might have to take-for the G2 and full G-levels of the Ontario driver’s license. New drivers must pass both driving exams before they can obtain a full license. You might also be asked to complete a road test if you meet the following conditions:
If you are a foreign driver you might be asked to complete at least one road test depending on your country of origin and level of documented experience
If you are renewing an expired license that was a G1 or G2 license, or a full G license that expired more than 12 months ago
If you are renewing your license and are 80 years of age or older you might be asked to pass a driving exam
If you are reinstating a license that was suspended 3+ years ago
No matter what level your road test is, you should arrive 30 minutes before your scheduled time with a vehicle (owned, borrowed, or rented) as it will not be provided for you.
G2 Road Test
The G2 driving exam is designed to test your basic driving skills. It lasts around 20 minutes and is performed entirely on city streets, with no testing done on any 400-series highways. The examiner will have you perform basic driving maneuvers, including:
Starting, stopping and turning the vehicle
Obeying traffic stops and signs
Passing other vehicles and driving in passing lanes
Driving through all types of intersections (with lights and stop signs)
