I just took my G2 Exit Test yesterday at the Aurora location and figured I put the route up here in case anyone might find it of use. I know for me--even though the route the examiner took me on ended up being completely different from the outdated ones posted online--it was really beneficial to drive around the area and get a sense of the traffic conditions and road variances. This also really helped my nerves and confidence, as I was still able to drive through Yonge - Wellington - 404 South - Bloomington a few times to get a hang of the traffic conditions. For example, be sure to follow the speed limit, as it changes quite frequently throughout the routed. Don't worry too much though, as the signs are clearly posted in advance of when the different speed limit starts. Going in order of the route I took:

- When you make a left onto Yonge (north of Allaura Boulevard), has a speed limit of 50 km/h
- Wellington varies from 60 km/h to 70 km/h to 80 km/h
- Highways are 100 km/h
- Bloomington, once you get off the highway, starts at 80 km/h before changing to 60/km
- When you make a right onto Yonge, the speed limit will change to 80 km/h and then back to 60/km after Industrial Parkway South (right under the railway track, and right before the plaza where the DriveTest centre is)

If anyone has any questions, feel free to shoot me a PM. :)

anyone know that if we book our test online do we have to state on there whether we take our instructors car/our own car at the time of booking? What are the procedures for bringing our own car?

When you book an appointment you don't have to state what car you will bring. You could even use a rental car taken the same day. When you arrive to do the road test you will have to go inside with your Licence and the licence plate number of the car that you brought for the road test.

With the construction at the Burnhamthorpe exit off Hwy 427 in Etobicoke, can someone write about the updated test route for the G test in Etobicoke?
Would have to be over the last week...Much appreciated.

You might enter on highway 427 just off Matheson Blvd and Renforth Rd. or they can make you turn right on Renforth from Eglinton and then left on Eringate Drive and then make you do 3 point turn and emergency stops on the side streets around Eringate Dr. afterward you can enter highway 427 Southbound through Eringate Dr.

If the Burnhamthorpe exit is open you will exit there and they will make you turn left on Burnhamthorpe (keep the right lane when turning left because they will make you enter highway 427 Northbound and the ramp is on the right side of Burnhamthorpe). If the exit is closed most likely you will exit the highway on one of the smaller ramps such as Holiday Rd or Eva Rd. or they could possibly make you exit on Dundas and get you back on the highway going northbound.

Thanks for the input. I did not consider the Holiday or Eva Road exits so definitely think some practice there is a good idea.
I think the burnhamthorpe ramp construction ends this weekend and my wife's test is next week so should be back to the normal route.

Been driving along the 401 for over a year and a half now and have been slacking on getting my G. Well, I took it today and successfully passed.

Just like to chime in with regards to those taking their exit tests at the Etobicoke location, the route linked on the first page (OPs post) is still accurate. And yes, the pylons are still there in the parking lot. The driving instructor will either make you parallel park between the two pylons right off the bat or make you do it in one of the side streets by Eringate Dr.

The route posted helped a lot since I am not from nor familiar with the area. I am from Markham. I was originally going to take it at Downsview but there's almost a one month wait for the next available date. wow.

Be aware of your surroundings. Be cool, calm and collected and you will do fine :) Best of luck to everyone taking it at that location.

Hope your wife passed! They made me take the Burnhamthorpe Ramp exit. Boy, that's one short offramp! Need to get a lot of speed quickly and merge safely.
Lots of construction on the 427!

Hi, I've a question. Hopefully anyone can help me. I've driver license at my country for many years, so I took G2 exit road test after I got G1, but I fail the test. When I try to book online for next time, I can only choose G2 class (which is G1 exit road test) this time, not as last time I can choose G or G2 class. I'm wondering why I can't take G2 exit road test again? I didn't find any regulation said driver out of country only have one time chance to get license from G1 to full G. Does any one can answer my question? Thanks.

Check out the Drive Test website it states "An unsuccessful G Test will result in a mandatory G2 Test to continue"

I have enough out-of-country experience to allow me to go straight to the G road test from a G1 license, however I still technically need to have a person with a G license for at least 4 years accompany me to the test centre.
Q1: Does any know if they ask you about this when you arrive, or if i fail do they check to make sure you don't drive yourself away?!
Q2: I'm doing the test in the Lawrence Victoria Park location, can anybody recommend a driving instructor in the area to do a brush up lesson with beforehand and who would accompany me to the test on the day?

Took my G at Downsview in early August. Despite driving on the highway on a daily basis since getting my G2 last summer, I was nervous about the test given what I've heard from scouring the internet (low passage rates, surly examiners etc) and just being examined in general. A few days before the test, I found a posted map of the Drive Test route for the G in Downsview (Google it, and you'll find it) and drove it to familiarize myself with the area. It helped, but the route I was taken on was different than the posted route (having checked the comments there, seems like it is still one of the options). Anyways, I passed without issue. I was calm and confident in the car, which is something the examiner looks for, along with highway driving experience (which you declare) and all of the other basics (check blind spots, signal, scan mirrors etc).

The route was roughly like so: left @ Sheppard, left @ Keele, right @ second side street on Keele, through school zone, left @ Tavistock, right @ Keele (without a light), Keele to 401; merge; lane change to middle lane, lane change to far lane, lane change back to exit lane; exit to Allen Road North; exit to Wilson Height; right at Sheppard; right at industrial road right after Allen Road to do parallel park, emergency stop and 3 point turn; return to drive test centre for a reverse park.

G1 Exit Test - BRAMPTON
August 13, 2012

Please note that when I did this test, there was a lot of construction going on.

Parallel parking and 3 pt. turn in the same area (right beside DriveTest building). The parallel parking was done with pylons and the 3 pt. turn was done right beside the pylons. This is done before they take you on the road

Take right out of DriveTest Centre plaza onto First Gulf Blvd. (maintain 50kmph unless driving examiner tells you otherwise)

Left on Biscayne Cres. (this is where you'll do road side parking). This road will take you back to First Gulf Blvd. In this road, the single lane will split into 2 lanes after you see Costco. Keep left so that it will be easier to make a left turn at the next signal.

Left on First Gulf Blvd. (be careful while making the left turn as there is construction and it might be confusing). This will take you to Kennedy Rd. Keep right to make the next turn easier (50kmph zone).

Right on Kennedy Rd. Make sure to stay in the right lane unless told otherwise. There will be a lot of pedestrians crossing at this intersection. If the pedestrian is past the half way point on the road (past the divider), do NOT make the turn. If the pedestrian has not reached the midpoint yet, you may complete the turn.

Right on Steeles Ave. at the signal (try to maintain 80kmph on this road). Stay in the right lane as you will be taking a right into the plaza. Here, I came across a cyclist and a cyclist should be given their own lane and should be considered as a car. Never share the lane with the cyclist. You may change lanes and overtake the cyclist (note: do not cross solid lines. You may only make the lane change if the line is dotted).

Right on Resolution Dr. (into the plaza)

Change lanes to the left and take a left turn at the stop sign.

Make a right turn at the next stop sign. *there is a short distance before the next stop sign

Left turn at the next stop sign.

Take a right into the DriveTest Centre.
