If you are applying for your first G1 driver’s licence, there is an excellent FREE online tool to practice – https://www.g1.ca/
Being a safe and responsible driver takes a combination of knowledge, skill and attitude. To begin, you must know the traffic laws and driving practices that help traffic move safely. Breaking these “rules of the road” is the major cause of collisions.
In Ontario, once you are 16, you can get your G1 driver’s licence by passing a written knowledge test. In addition to the written exam, you will also need to pass a vision test and pay a $158.25 fee. If you need to take the knowledge test again, it is an extra $15.75.
Your G1 driver’s licence will be valid for a five-year period.
New drivers applying for their first car or motorcycle licence enter Ontario’s graduated licensing system. Graduated licensing lets new drivers get driving experience and skills gradually. The two-step licensing process takes at least 20 months to complete.
After you pass your written test, you must hold your G1 license for one year, or 8 months if you are enrolled in a driver training program before you may take your first drive test to qualify for a G2 license.
The G1 driver’s licence holders may drive vehicles with an accompanying fully licensed driver with at least four years driving experience.
You must pass two road tests to become fully licensed. Passing the first road test lets you move to Level Two (Class G2), and the second one gives you full Class G driving privileges.
It’s what you have to know about G1 written exam:
- The G1 written test is NOT timed

These G1 practice tests use the same scoring system as the DriveTest centres across the province. Although, there’s no way to know which set of questions you personally will get at the written exam, the questions of the practice tests are almost identical to the real ones. So, there will be no surprises when you go for the real test.
The official site for the Ontario Ministry of Transportation has NO complete G1 sample tests, and only 8 sample questions. That’s not enough to provide you with the practical experience you need. To help you achieve that practice, we have created 12 free practice tests and a G1 Test Simulator. These tests will provide you with experience answering the same types of questions you’ll find on the real test: each test is based on the most recent MTO Driver’s Handbook, uses the same method of grading, and covers the same driving topics used by the MTO.
