How long must I wait to do my G2 if I failed the test?


In Ontario, Canada road tests check your driving skills in the vehicle and in traffic. You will be tested on your ability to follow the rules of the road and safe driving practices. The Level One (G1) road test deals with basic driving skills.

After 12 months at Level Two (G2), you may take a road test to qualify for full license privileges. The Level Two road test is much more demanding than the Level 1 test; you must demonstrate a high level of driving skill and knowledge. The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) notes that you should learn the proper driving skills as soon as you become a Level One driver so you can get as much driving experience as possible before taking the Level Two test.

The Level Two road test deals with more advanced knowledge and driving skills. Your performance in each of the tests will tell you whether you need more training or practice. You will also have to show that you can drive well on a freeway or high speed highway. The Driver's Handbook can tell you more about the skills you must show in a G2 road test. You must pass this test to get a Class G license.

The DriveTest portion of the Ministry of Transportation site notes that at the end of each test, the Examiner will give you a complete report of your skills and explain any mistakes you made. If you do not pass, after you have had more practice, you can make an appointment to take the test again but you must wait a minimum of ten days between tests. For an M1 or M2 road test, you must wait a minimum of three days between tests.

So if you failed your G2 road test you must wait at least 10 days. A person that is taking a M1 or M2 road test only has to wait 3 days to take a re-test. As you should be aware to take your road test again you will need to contact the Road Test Booking Call Centre at (416) 325-8580 or 1-888-570-6110, or go online to with the MTO to schedule an appointment.

Remember if you are unable to keep the appointment, call the Road Test Booking Call Centre or go online to cancel your test. If you fail to attend or you cancel your appointment without providing at least 48 hours notice, your prepaid road test fee will not be refunded.

So if you fail the test, the report will show you where you need to improve. When you have had more practice, you can make an appointment to take the test again. You must wait a minimum of 10 days between tests. To find out more about how to re-do your G2 road test you should contact MTO directly.
