What does the Ontario G2 road test entail?


Quick Answer

The Ontario G2 road test includes the proper management of left and right turns, stopping and proceeding through intersections, freeway driving, lane changing and knowing what to do in the event of a roadside stop. It also covers navigating curves, residential and business areas; parallel parking; and the completion of a three-point turn. Additionally, applicants must complete Declaration of Highway Driving Experience to indicate that they have met the minimum requirements for expressway driving.

The Declaration of Highway Driving Experience includes a record of three months of freeway or highway driving. The candidate must complete all driving at a minimum speed limit of 80 kilometers per hour, and the Declaration must use kilometers to express the average length of each trip. Only certain freeways apply, including 400 through 407, 409, 410, 416 and 417. Freeway 427 is also applicable, as is the Conestoga Parkway, E.C. Row Expressway, Gardiner Expressway, Don Valley Parkway and Queen Elizabeth Way. The road test proctor reviews the Declaration and, if deemed incomplete, the applicant loses 50 percent of the road test fee and must pay that amount to reschedule.

Ontario implemented graduated licensing in 1994 to ensure that new drivers gain the skills needed to complete advanced driving tasks. The process as a whole takes at least 20 months, and candidates must pass two road tests. Upon the completion of the G2 road test, drivers receive all Class G driving privileges.
