Oakville G2 test tips/experience

Hi test fright,
The route for the G2 is :
Exit the drive test centre,
Turn right (lots of construction work around so be careful)
First left at the traffic lights
Left turn at the stop sign (you can change lanes at the broken yellow line)
Parallel parking, uphill/downill parking in the inside roads
Speed limit seemed to be 50 throughout the inside roads.
Left turn on Ford drive (don't cut the oddly placed white line in the centre of the road)
Left turn at cornwall
Immediately after the left turn is the railway crossing ... remember to slow down and look in both directions.
You might have to change lanes at once due to the construction.
Drive to the drive test centre. Road speed is 60 but traffic is slow due to the construction.

I have had good and bad experiences at the Oakville centre. My last one (last week) was very positive. I had this wonderful young girl as my drive test examiner and she was very polite and calm the entire time.

Hope you pass,

I am appearing for my g2 in a month in Oakville and this thread has been quite useful so far.
I failed last week in Burlington :(, all went well but messed up parallel parking as I got nervous.
Now I want to reappear without my instructor so that if i fail again I don't lose all that money again.

Anyone remembers the route in Oakville? any other tips related to this center is much appreciated.
thanks!!

thanks!
Thank you so much fass2008. This def. is a big help!!
Have you failed once at oakville before last week?

My test is on the 9th, and I have changed my mind about giving it in my own car, instead I am going again with the instructor.

Thanks once again!

I have failed twice at Oakville and passed twice :)
I gave my G2 a few years ago and failed in Oakville and Guelph and then passed in my third attempt at Oakville
I gave my G in Oakville just last month and failed. As my lisence was about to expire I couldnt take a chance with failing again and so redid my G2 in Oakville and passed. I too did not take the chance and appointed another driving instructor (just to teach me parrallel parking and reverse parking :)). AND I still have to pass my G. so I expect visiting Oakville a few more times :)

Driving is unavoidable in this country (especially in the suburbs) and getting the lisence is just something you HAVE to accomplish, however stressful and expensive the process...

wow! you must be an expert of G2 by now :), just kidding - I can imagine how stressful and frustrating this entire experience must be.
I was quite confidant the first time I apreared, as according to my instructor, I was one of his best student! - and during practices my parallel parking was great but I did not do it well on the test date although the examiner gave me 3 chances to fix it :p, but I had never practiced "fixing" a messed up parking :).
this time round I am quite nervous.

I think I would go to the test area on a weekend to ger familliar with the route you've sent - is it appropriate to practice in that area during the week? I somehow feel it might not be, as many people there must be in the middle of their tests.

one more question, did you find your 2nd instructor better than the first? and did they charge $100?

Its okay, but your instructor may not come with you as they could get fined.

I have had multiple instructors. My second one was not neccesarily better than the first and yes he charged me $130 (car + class before test). Such a waste of money :( but I guess it had to be..

hello readers

I passed my G2 test today!!! :D
Without any exageration this thread was a big help, especially the pointers and help of fass2008 - so thank you!! much appreciated!

fass2008, my route was slightly different, after the left from the first signal, we did not turn left at stop sign, instead kept going straight and then into the residential area on the right ....which is much more curvier and uphill/downhill than the other. I did not get any railway crossing, and later entered the test center from the right.
my examiner did not make me do parallel parking at all :clap: , instead he made me do reverse parking at the very end.

I'll just add a pointer to the already great list of pointers in this thread -

the residentiaal area i got did not have a pavement or proper corners nor curbs, so just be careful when parking, and 3 point turns, do not step on the gravel and also in such palces, (where there is a small ditch along the right side) when parking you should always turn your wheels to the right wheather it uphill or downhill -

all the best

G2 done in Oakville - September 2010
Hi All,

I just did my G2 couple weeks ago in Oakville and this is the route I was taken on as follow:
Coming out of the parking lot I was asked to back out of the parking spot than leaving the driving centre I took a right than on the first lights I took another right drove straight till the road ended where pavement ended as was asked to do a three point turn and than well they didn't tell me this but I figured and than I had to do parallel parking. Once I was done that he asked me to go straight through the light set and take a right on the stop, then I went till the road finished and than on the final stop went left and the roads were very much with sharp curves so shortly after he ask me to park uphill and than went back right on a stop to a light set and straight through and than left to the driving centre.
* Make sure you use the designated area to turn left *

Good luck everyone!!!
And go learn the area left and right cause you may be taken on a different route in that area.
I pretty much memorize the left area after reading all the posts but was taken to the right.

Hi everyone-I just took my g road test today out of oakville and passed the first time. The instructor was very kind. We exited the test centre, going left towards ford - left on ford and right on the first residential street into a subvision where we did 3 pt turns, roadstop park and parallel park (which i completely messed up.) We came out of the subdivision, right onto Ford and then the QEW Hamilton - along QEW to Trafalgar - off at trafalgar and right back on taking QEW Toronto. Got off at Royal Windsor Drive - easy drive along there (watch speed I think it was 80), right at Ford Drive and then right at Cornwall back to test centre. Make sure to check mirrors all the time, watch speed limits and check blind spots. When you exist the test centre first top at sidewalk and then proced a little further out to see into traffic - use you emergency break, they love that. Also watch for railway tracks - don't stop, just slow down and look both ways. Good luck to everyone.
