You’ve passed your G1 written test and G2 road test and now it’s time to acquire your full G license. By now, you’re probably aware that each test is rather different with various conditions and requirements. For example, the full G license allows drivers to operate a vehicle, van or small truck and drive on the highway.
If you’re ready to take your G test, there are certain factors to consider and follow to help you pass the exam. In this article, DriverZed outlines everything you need to know to prepare for the final G driving exam.
What To Do While Awaiting Examiner and During Meet Up
Before you even leave the house for your G test, ensure you check all of the turn signals, brake lights and headlights on the vehicle to ensure they’re functioning optimally. If any of these features fail, you will be unable to do the test. Ensure your cell phone devices and any other distracting devices are turned off and out of sight. Also, have your seatbelt prior to the examiner entering the vehicle and prepare to listen to all of their questions.
The examiner will also do a test for all of these lights and signals prior to the exam as well. Ensure you show up at the exam centre at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time. Have your G2 license on you along with any supporting documents. The examiner will enter your vehicle and begin asking you specific questions to confirm your information and details.
While On The Road
Once the examiner has gone over the details, they will have you begin your test. Most G tests last for between 20 to 40 minutes. After they give their go-ahead, start the vehicle and proceed. You may have to back up out of the exam center’s parking space; therefore, ensure you are using the appropriate turning signals and checking your mirrors for blind spots. You will likely make a few turns on certain roads prior to any highway driving. During this time, ensure you are abiding by each instruction and turn the examiner tells you and applying the appropriate turn signals, along with checking for blind spots. At any red lights, ensure you’re making a complete stop behind the white line and always looking both directions, signalling and checking your blind spots if making a turn when the light becomes green. At four-way stops, assess who has the right of way before proceeding. When on the highway, always signal and check blind spots prior to making any turns. Maintain a three-second gap between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
After you complete the test, the examiner will assess whether you have passed or failed and inform you of any mistakes.
