G TEST TIP:
When taking the G Road Test (Expressway Test), you will be required to declare your driving experience to ensure that you have sufficient expressway driving experience in order to proceed with the road test.
You have to declare how many times in the three months before the road test you have driving on a 400-series highway and/or on a highway with a speed limit of at least 80 km/hr.
You must have driven at least 5 times on a highway with a speed limit of least 80 km/hr. and /or a 400 series highway. You are also required to indicate the average length of these trips (i.e., under 5 km, between 5 and 15 km, over 15 km).
The 400-series highways include: 400, 401, 402, 403, 404, 405, 406, 407, 409, 410, 416, 417, 420, and 427, Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW), Don Valley Parkway (DVP), Gardiner Expressway, E. C. Row Expressway, and the Conestoga Parkway.
Ensure that you have the required highway driving experience prior to your road test appointment, or your appointment will be cancelled, and you will lose 50% of your road test fee. Go for your Gest test well before your license expires (5 years).
If your driver’s license is about to expire and you are taking the G test and fail, you will go back to a G1 license.
