G test at Guelph

Thanks to this poster who has asked me this ... Posting for common benefit ..

At Guelph they ask you to park your car in the rear of the drive test centre after you have filed the formaties ..... You are better off if you do that before .... as the instructor is waiting for you immediately afterwards ....

Yes they ask you to take the car out ... although I did not do so but you may be better off if you reverse park your car initially so that driving off is easier .... When returning the Instructor asks you to reverse park in the parking spot which is to the left ................ As a practice I forward park into a left parking spot and reverse park into a right parking sport .... So it was not the best reverse parking I did and the instructor helped me in missing a car .

If I was aware of this , I would have practiced reverse parking on the left a bit .....

Another addenum in case you don't already know ... there s a question on your recent driving experience on 400 series Hwy on the formalities form ... its safe to fill in a number of recent trips > 50 on 400 series Hwy ....

G road test in Guelph.
Hi All,

Could anyone here map/ route of G test - held at Guelph? Also one more question- there are traffic lights as well as yield sign when you enter hwy 6 at Guelph, so when the lights are red should one stop completely at yield sign or keep on driving slowly and then speed up to merge the hwy speed of 70 because I guess the ramp is very short?

Thanks and wishing every body a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.

If the lights are RED , you MUST perform COMPLETE stop . Move your head (literally) right and left to make sure that there is no oncoming traffic and than proceed .
Good luck

G road test in Guelph.
Thanks AshwaniG.

Since the ramp length at Guelph is very short so once you do complete stop on yield sign then isn't it difficult to bring the speed to 70 before you can merge into highway or is it OK to merge at a little slower speed also say 50 or 60 ? I guess its not OK then after complete stop on yield sign one has to press throttle to the max I guess so that to achieve speed of 70? Please share the experience. Also if you can paste route/map of G test please?

Thanks.

ALL about the test.
So after stress beyond what I thought was possible.. I got my G at Guelph.. I will go over what it was like because I used this post/website for info..

(I went with an instructor: Success driving school (519) 822-1341 the gentleman Von, was great.. took me on all 3 routes that you can be tested on. I called last min to get an appointment and it worked out so well. I suggest paying the $45 for a lesson.. my skills were 'Good' but after the lesson - wouldn't have passed without it!

During the test they want to see-
lots of eye and neck head movement and an idea that you know what you're doing. Don't be stressed - go around before the test. Helps sooo much!

They have 300+ boxes to tick off each time per segment:
expressway, turns, lane changes, business/residential, stops, through traffic, curve - Your approach, Stop, Resume

Traffic check, lane action, speed, signal, mirror, positioning in intersection *Don't point your wheels left before the turn!* where your hands are, what your speed is, spacing /gaps, merge.. and the list goes onnnn! So being \"Aware\" of the technicals is a MUST but isn't hard if you practice and go back to G2 driver training times.. or handbook..

anyways.. the left turn lights on the hanlon- ONLY turn on the advance green.. if you turn on the plain green- automatic fail for not obeying signage because it indicates advance signal (not sure of the specifics just trust me ..hah)

the entrances onto the hanlon (the ones I went over and was tested on mainly woodlawn willow area- I believe) do not have a yield, but you need to yield if there is any pedestrian crossing- otherwise when you approach, you 'Need' to cancel your signal before the turn (When you tuck your head out to look around at oncoming) go into the turn-use the full speed up lane to go 65km - signal- blindspot jazz etc... I went on this way twice during my test did lane changes and got off at the pesky left turn ( silvercreek I think?)

You will go into a residential area near royal road/ willow road area- there you will do your parallel park, 3 point turn, and emergency stop. not hard.. just remember to signal your turns- & 4 ways on your emergency stop with e-brake..

On the main roads, watch for speed, community safety zone area is only 50km* what lane you go into and if you lane change back to right.

Rail Road: Hover break, look both ways
Intersections: Hover break , look both ways
Stop BEFORE the white line - so you can see it.. it doesn't look as funny as you think
Left turn- have your shoulder on 2ND line furthest into intersection- dont turn wheels left- legally you entered the intersection on the green; so, if it goes yellow you can Legally turn on perhaps the red (this happened in my test..I was okay because of my positioning!)
Speed: DONT GO TOO SLOW- doc marks. Don't speed- Hanlon is only 70
Ramps: off ramp *check Mirror and dont give gas dont keep signal on* my mess up on my test


My test went by fairly fast- my instructor said best times for the test are First thing -8:30, 9-10. 1-2:30 (before 3pm with buses and traffic) I went at 9 and was back in the office with my PASS by 9:35.

Hope this helps for some!

It sure will help not only people on CD but other viewers as well -- when I googled 'g test guelph' this thread came right on the top !!

Very insightful & helpful post . Thanks ... One thing that can never be over stressed for any driving test is familiarity with the route & place ... I would surely recommend people taking the test to try the adjoining routes a couple of times to give them confidence .. In my case I recall , I had reached an hour earlier and drove around the place twice getting a hang of the driving environment ..
