Oakville G2 test tips/experience

I just did my test today and I embarrassingly have to admit I failed. I failed for the reason poster #2 mentioned as well.

I had a blonde woman as my examiner and I have to say that I've never met anyone so mean without reason, ever...

She stated that I didn't observe my surroundings enough even though I distinctly remember I was looking around like a siren just because I remembered someone telling me too. Then she mentioned I didn't look left and right at railway crossings, which is true (I should've read these posts before) and that I was going too slow sometimes.

I guess my Indian instructor was at fault because he NEVER mentioned these aspects at all so I didn't even know what to expect. I'm taking the test in 10 days again and I'm pretty sure I'll pass it this time...:cuss:

Seema,
Make sure you keep all the points discussed in this thread (including general rules) and you will be okay.

Thanks for the reply. I had few questions. Really appreciate if some can answer them, even if the questions may seem silly to the experienced drivers.

There is a place marked with "School Sign" and right beneath the sign the speed limit is shown as "60". What speed should be maintained there 60 or 40?

Do they take you on 403 or QEW?

How busy are the highways during the afternoons?

Any tips on the parallel parking. I had done it successfully during my G1 exit test, but after that never had any chance to practice it. What are the chances that it will be asked?

Hey Seema,

I find it strange that there would be a school sign and a 60 Speed Limit sign in the same area. I never went over 60 on any streets and the residential areas are usually 40 or 50.

I've seen people mention that they go on the highway but I've never been taken on the Highway for my G2 test.

I was asked to do parallel parking once on an uphill road (40 Max) and I have to say it was really easily, I did it perfectly.

I failed G2 licence in Oakville, the reason is that i was too new and the second reason is that the driver who was teaching me driving asked me to pay $500 to the instructor so he can passed me, but i object bribing the instructor then again the driver told me to pay $300 still i did not pay one cent to the instructor. Actually the way it works is the driver will take the money from me and signal the instructor by some body language and he will understand tht i had paid - well since i did not pay him any money the instructor i still remember his name was (Raj) he is a tall darkish complexion guy, was very rude with me when i was driving the car as i was doing very tiny mistake and then he asked me rear parking the car. He failed me one reason i was not confident on the road and second reason he did not get one cent from me.

I passed my licence in MorningSide though the instructor are more strict but the road are very clear during non peak hours.

I've heard of these things before. Don't ever bribe the examiners because you could get in trouble yourself (as far as I know) and as for the fail, if you feel that you were cheated, you could file a report and even go to court for that.

Driving tips for Oakville
SCS,

In Oakville, apart from the tips provided by desis, be careful of two more aspects:

1. Stay away from bicycle zones i.e. don't ever cross and drive into a lane specially meant for bicycles.

2. Stay away from extreme right lane which has a sign "Right only" if you are told that you need to go straight on and cross the intersection.


Cheers,
AAA
