Day of Your Road Test

You will be tested on your ability to follow the rules of the road and demonstrate safe driving behaviour. The examiner will provide directions during the road test (e.g. “stop”, “turn left”, “turn right”). None of the directions will involve illegal actions.

The examiner must exercise care to prevent injury to the applicant, other motorists, pedestrians, or themselves. If it becomes obvious at any time during the road test that you lack the necessary skills to operate a motor vehicle, your test will be terminated. You will be immediately disqualified and lose your prepaid road test fee. The examiner is not allowed to provide advice during the test. If you have any questions, you must ask them before you begin your road test.

Arrive 30 minutes early to complete check-in procedures. Bring your driver’s licence and glasses/contact lenses if you have an ‘X’ condition on your licence. Applicants will lose the prepaid road test fee and must reschedule the test if they fail to attend or check-in late for their appointment.
