Applicants for the G1 written test should spend as much time as possible taking practice tests, available at websites such as APNAToronto.com or ICanDrive.ca. Drivers can take the G1 road test 12 months after passing the written test. Drivers taking government approved driver education courses may test after eight months.
The G1 license is the first part of Ontario, Canada's graduated driver's license program. It is designed for new drivers and has certain driving restrictions, such as not driving between midnight and 5 a.m. and not driving on 400-series highways. A G1 driver must be accompanied by a fully licensed driver with at least four years of experience.
APNAToronto.com and ICanDrive.ca offer free practice quizzes intended to help you pass the written test. The practice quizzes cover road rules and signs, and are available in English, French, Spanish, Arabic and Chinese. An approved G1 driver education course does the same thing and has the added benefit of letting you take the road test earlier.
The G1 road test evaluates basic driving skills, such as following the rules of the road, obeying signs and using safe driving practices. The amount of practice you need depends on your confidence level. Every time you take the test and fail, you have to wait another 10 days to retest and pay the testing fees again. Being prepared saves you money.
