Road Test Booking

To make an online road test booking, it will be necessary to leave the DriveTest site and enter the Ontario Ministry of Transportation site by clicking below. Please be patient. It is suggested that you arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment in order to initiate all processing (i.e. road test fee payment) before the scheduled time of the road test in order to avoid receiving a $25.00 ‘fail to keep appointment fee’ as a result of being late. Road test appointments must be canceled at least 48 hours before the scheduled date and time of the test; otherwise, you will be charged a late cancellation fee of $25.00 and will be responsible to pay the required fee before being able to book another road test. Please note for all novice class license holders: Novice class applicants are no longer eligible to book a road test after the date of license expiry and are required to re-commence the graduated licensing process. Please be aware that tests booked in contravention of this policy will not be facilitated and unused appointment fees may be invoked. Applicants may continue to book a road test prior to the date of their license expiry for utilization after expiry, however, if this test is canceled after the license expiry date, no further bookings may be made and the applicant is obliged to re-commence the graduated system. “DriveTest” does not accept responsibility for errors made by applicants when using the automated booking systems. Graduated Licensing System The Ontario Graduated Licensing System has been a resounding success in reducing death and injury among novice drivers. Ontario research shows that new teenage drivers are almost three times more likely to be involved in a fatal or serious collision when they are carrying teenage passengers. In fact, research shows the more teenage passengers, the higher the risk. To further protect youth on our roads:
  • The number of young passengers that teen G2 drivers can carry is limited from midnight to 5 a.m.
  • Initially, G2 drivers 19 or under can carry only one passenger aged 19 or under.
  • After the first six months, and until the G2 driver earns a full G license or turns 20, they can carry only three passengers aged 19 or under.
These restrictions do not apply if the G2 driver is accompanied by a full G licensed driver (with at least four years driving experience) in the front seat, or if the passengers are immediate family members.
