If looking at Google maps you exit the plaza making a right turn onto North Service road, right turn @ Skyview Drive, right turn @ Heather Hill Dr follow the road in a big circle then back to the drive test center taking the same route, its very easy 10% business 90% residential. The route has likely changed last time I was at the Burlington drive test center there were notices posted for instructors/people to not practice driving in the area because residents were complaining (wealthy looking neighborhood) but lots of people are still doing it.

If you need to memorize the test route in order to pass then you're not ready to have a full driver's license. Driving in real life isn't predictable.
Tis banana is IRIE 😎

10% off is cold, 50% off is warm, 75% off is hot, but FREE IS RFD!

A family member is going to be taking the G2 Exit test in the next few weeks. From what I've read, I suspect that the highway route can only be one of the two following routes. Can anyone verify these routes or add to this discussion, if you took yet another route. Both routes start from the Cornwall / Ford Dr. area, and end back at the drive test center on Cornwall.

It sometimes take a bit for the google map to fully load.

Thanks in advance

Route#1:
To Erin Mills: http://tinyurl.com/6gnndqs
distance = 16.2 km


Route #2:
To Dorval: http://tinyurl.com/628rbls
distance = 16.4km

Just had my G1 exit road test in Oshawa this afternoon and I passed with flying colors :)
YAY!

Since there aren't many replies on the Oshawa test route, I thought I would share my experience:

Had the test at 2:45 pm.
My examiner was friendly but professional (Hi Kim!)
She didn't say much but she had this friendly aura that made me feel at ease and definitely affected my driving in a positive way :)
She tested me on left and right turns, a downhill park (on a flat surface, of course), a 3-point turn, and a parallel parking.
I had to back out from the parking spot at the test center when I started because my instructor parked the car head in.
I think this could be the reason why she didn't test me on my back in/reverse parking.

I can't remember the exact test route because we drove on small residential streets, but this is roughly how I remember it:
- Exit the test center on to John St W, turn right and drive all the way to Park Rd. South.
- Turn left to Park Rd. South (don't forget to change lane!)
- Turn right to Frontenac Ave. (this is where she asked me to perform a downhill park)
And I can't remember the exact route after that but we're just driving around the residential area, where she then asked me to do a parallel parking and a 3-point turn.
- Somehow ended up driving on Grenfell St.
- Make a right turn to King St. West (it's one-way road, stay on the far right lane after you make the turn)
- Turn right to Park Rd. South.
- Turn left to John St. West, reduce speed from 50km/h to 40km/h
And voila! You're back at the test center :)

Things to remember during the test:
- Check your rear view mirror every 5-10 seconds.
- Check your blind spot every time you signal.
- Turn your entire upper body to check what's behind your car (just exaggerate the movement) whenever you're driving on reverse
- Stay within the speed limit :)

Oshawa's max speed limit is 50km/h unless stated.
John St West (the street in front of the test center) is 40km/h.

That's my 2 cents.
Good luck everyone :)

Hello,

I did my G2 in Oshawa on 23rd. I also got Kim (very sweet lady) explains everything! Don't be afraid to ask her to explain anything before hand if you are unsure.

The route was the same, all in all took about 15 mins in total. I passed even though I get very nervous for any type of test (shaking leg, not fun when pressing on gas pedal lol) and when doing parallel parking, I hit the curb. She can tell if you are skilled enough, and whether the mistakes you do are to nervousness or lack of skill.

Hints:
-If you know how to drive well enough, but get nervous, you can pass!
-Always check every direction on turns to make sure way is clear, take time if you need.
-Try to go at the speed limit (50km) on the King St. W, (I was going like 43 km - one of the mistakes - too slow)
-Don't get nervous when you do mistakes, straighten up, correct and just keep going normally.

Merry Christmas, Safe driving and all the best :)

Here is another G2 exit driving test route for Kingston, experienced at end of April 2012.

http://g.co/maps/5c7gs

Thanks to eddiehosa, for posting the other Kingston G2 Exit Test Route (in OP #1). Eddie's original route, begins with the initial drive through the local neighbourhood to demonstrate parallel parking and 3-point turn, then proceeds WEST on Princess St, clockwise up Gardiners Rd, onto the 401E, back down along Sydenham Rd...and IMHO was 'simpler/easier' than this alternate route that I've just posted.

This alternate route started off in the same local neighbourhood, but then goes EAST on Princess St, then counter-clockwise, up Sydenham Rd, and onto the 401W. But instead of coming back south along Gardiners Rd, the route involved going RIGHT BACK onto the 401E, and coming back down on Syndenham Rd again, before returning to the drive test centre.

Really, you should practice all routes / directions, and not try to get the Coles Notes version...it's safer for everyone involved, including YOURSELF, if you can pass the test with a proper/comfortable amount of practice. I'm only posting this because my kid was able to use Eddie's route, as a practice guideline, but we also extended the practice by going in the opposite direction (just had a hunch). And then going over and over the route again with various side-trips...get those hours of driving under your belt, and feel confident!

Good luck, especially to all you GAELS students! ;)
