Every Canadian trying for a driving license will need to pass the road test in Canada.
The road test in Canada is designed to ensure that you are a safe driver above everything else. You may not be the smartest driver among the applicants, you may have some issues and you may still have some way to go before you can be super confident on the streets. But as long as you are not a threat to commuters on the road, property and yourself, you will tread well during a road test in Canada.
While the road test in Canada is not very different from that in other countries, say the United States or the United Kingdom, but there are some unique elements.
First of all, the road test in Canada is a tad more difficult.Second, the driving license application process is broken into two steps, namely the G1 and G2 test. These differences are substantial and significant. At the crux of it all lays the simple old school approach of practice. You will find a road test in Canada exponentially easier if you practice more, as much as you can.
Practice will train you for the test but more importantly it will make you a better driver.
You can never preempt everything on the road. Even after you get accustomed with the various technical aspects of driving, you are sure of where all the controls are and you gain some confidence while driving; you would still need to develop an astute road sense. Driving in traffic is a challenge for most learners. There are always tricky turns and busy thoroughfares, challenging parking lots and the perennially unnerving reverse when there are some blind spots. You must get accustomed with all the tricky demands of driving and only practice will get you where you need to be.
Practice will also get you acclimatized with the road signs and rules.
It is one thing to refer to the handbook, to use some online mock tests and to see the images of various road signs. It is a completely different reality out there. Only when you actually see the signs, follow the rules and get exposed to immediate application of your senses do you truly understand what the signs are and how the rules apply. It is not possible for anyone to master the rules and signs without extensive practice.
