When you do something the same 20-30 times a day you start using your other senses to complete the task. With that in mind....

A driving instruction can usually size you up within your first or second turn by just feeling how the car turns and breaks. So my advice is drive with confidence...

Also my wife did not like highways, so she booked her G2 exit in Collingwood. No hwys there... :)

Can I ask why you would want to book the test in a place with no highways? Are you planning to never drive on a highway?

You should be tested in the environment you will be driving in. If you booked in Orangeville to beat the system you are a knob! It will look great when you show your nice new drivers license to the police when you get in your accident because you cant drive where you live!
Why not man up and get more comfortable on the highways then go for your license?

You're scared of the highway and you want your drivers license?


I mean this in a nice way... but I hope you fail.

FYI! I do drive on the highway!
I guess i'm just really nervous about the test!

I drive one way 67KM everyday - my Husband says it's good practice.

If you dont have anything good to say - just dont say anything!

Incase you were not aware, over the last year there has been numerous news articles about people booking driving tests at easier testing locations. Bancroft was one that come to mind. Some driving schools did this on purpose to get a higher pass rate.

You are just perpetuating the cycle. Don't post online how you are using a loophole in the system since you want an easier testing location. And you wonder why people do not agree with you??

Regards and salutations

Matt

What I said wasn't rude, I even went out my way to make sure you knew I was trying to be nice about it. I fabricated my remarks based on the information you gave us.

Saying you are taking your test in an area free of highways, will lead most people to believe you are nervous on them.

The last thing our roads need are hesitant/nervous wrecks lollygagging down the 401 at 95km/h with their paranoid eyes peering over the top of the steering wheel.


This is a public forum. Anything you post on here is going to be stood up against people's opinions.

This is scary.

Just the other day I was merging onto the 401 E behind a car with a taped piece of paper on the back window that said "New driver, speed of turtle, please forgive me" and he was breaking for no reason on the on-ramp.

You should be comfortable driving on the highway by the time you go for your G test. Making a mistake at 100km/h could seriously hurt you or someone else. If you fail, it's because you can't drive and you shouldn't pass until you're ready.

That's the problem with the real world. Your "friends" will probably pat you on the back for your cunning aversion of a real driving test and in reality they'll be dreading the fact you'll end up with a license.

Having the nerve to come on a public forum and ask for advice as to how to essential cheat your way into getting a drivers license is rude and offensive to ME. How do you like that?

Why do I care? Because I don't want to be the guy driving behind you on the highway.

And how can you drive 67km every day on the highway and be nervous about doing it for 5-10 minutes? This makes no sense.
