G1 study is not complete without a thorough understanding of the handbook and knowing all the specific rules and signs needed to drive safely in Ontario.

G1 Practice Tests

These practice tests are designed to mimic what you will find on the actual Ontario G1 test, so they are an excellent option to learn about all of the the driving concepts, as well as get used to the G1 test taking environment.

WHERE DOES ICANDRIVE.CA GET THEIR ONTARIO G1 PRACTICE TEST QUESTIONS?

The questions on all of these Ontario G1 practice test sessions have been extracted from the same source as the real test: the Ontario Driver's Handbook. Together, all of our Ontario G1 practice test sets address all of the G1 road rules as well as the material on the G1 signs test - everything you will need to know.

However, we've taken things a step further. To help create this series of Ontario G1 practice test sets, we've enlisted the help of Ontario drivers who have already written the Ontario g1 test. They have provided additional input to allow our Ontario G1 practice test series to be even more accurate and truly reflect both the "look and feel" of the G1 test, and also the kinds of questions real people have seen on the actual Ontario g1 test.

This combination of sources, and constant feedback from users helps us to ensure the highest possible accuracy in the questions and answers we present. (you could actually see some of the exact same questions and answers on your G1 test.

HOW MANY QUESTIONS ARE THERE ON THE G1 TEST?

The G1 written test format is 40 multiple choice questions (MCQ's). 20 of the questions will be dedicated to the road signs part of the Ontario driver's handbook while 20 questions will be dedicated to road rules.

The test is marked on the spot. To pass the G1 test you need to get 16/20 correct on each one of the individual sections. To ensure you don't get more than 4 questions wrong per section you really need to learn the handbook and spend some time with the G1 practice test series, to make sure you know your stuff.

HOW SIMILAR IS YOUR ONTARIO PRACTICE TEST MATERIAL TO THE REAL G1 TEST?

Each and every one of our Ontario G1 practice test examples has been meticulously designed to closely mimic the actual testing that is done at the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) offices.

The two g1 exam sets we provide are an outstanding representation of the actual Ontario G1 test, and we believe, they are simply some of the best study tools available for g1 test preparation.

The system for generating the actual g1 questions at the MTO is an automated one, which means that questions are drawn randomly, therefore, there is no way to predict which questions will appear on your G1 test. However, our Ontario G1 practice test series presents a wide range of different questions, covering every aspect of the G1 test, thoroughly preparing you for the many different possible questions you could face. These G1 practice exercises will give you a good look at what the real test looks like and what is likely to be on it.

These include three separate rules of the road tests, and three additional road signs tests, each of which focus on a different aspect of driving knowledge. The last two exams are comprehensive G1 exams, covering all aspects of the prior six g1 practice tests.
