The official site for the Ontario Ministry of Transportation has NO complete G1 sample tests, and only 8 sample questions. That's not enough to provide you with the practical experience you need. To help you achieve that practice, we have created 12 free practice tests and a G1 Test Simulator. These tests will provide you with experience answering the same types of questions you’ll find on the real test: each test is based on the most recent MTO Driver’s Handbook, uses the same method of grading, and covers the same driving topics used by the MTO. You’ll be ready to breeze through your official exam on the very first try when the big day arrives.

Based on the MTO Driver’s Handbook

Questions designed to feel just like the real G1 test

Specific to Ontario

While some sites will provide you with a mix of questions based on MTO G1 rules and questions based on other sources, we write all our original questions with information straight from the official Driver’s Handbook.

Current and correct

Our practice tests are written using the latest version of the Handbook, so they’re always up-to-date. We monitor when a new issue comes out, and update any questions if necessary, so you’re never dealing with out-of-date test information.

Almost like the real exam

Because we design our questions to feel and our tests to function just like the real thing, you’ll be better prepared than if you just study using the Handbook.


The right way to prepare

A perfect companion for the Driver’s Handbook

Prepare more efficiently

It can be difficult to keep track of all the information in the Driver’s Handbook. Practice tests are a way to help you integrate that knowledge and reinforce it without re-reading the same dull material.

Learn from your mistakes

Instead of marking you incorrect and simply supplying the correct answer when you get a question wrong, each question has an explanation so you’ll understand why a certain answer is correct and be able to remember it next time.

Review your toughest questions

Different sections of the G1 are difficult for different people; some struggle to remember distances or fines, while others might have issues with road rules. G1.ca is the only Ontario practice test site with the Challenge Bank™, where your incorrectly answered questions are stored automatically so that you can review and retake them until you’re able to answer correctly.


Know what to expect

G1 Test Prep with Guidance, Not Guesswork

Structured like the real G1, too

All of our tests require you to achieve the same pass rate as the real exam. We’ve structured them to get you familiar with not only the material, but also the G1 test format.

Lose the fear of the unknown

One of the most important functions of our practice tests is that they will help make both the questions you face, and the test itself, feel more familiar. On your big day, you'll be prepared.

Study more effectively when you're motivated

Instead of giving up when things get too boring, G1.ca encourages you to keep going with compliments on your progress and suggestions to help you achieve more. Some of our sayings might seem a little corny, but we wrote each one to boost you up – we have confidence in you!


Gamification

Learn while having fun

Learning to drive while having fun

It can get boring and monotonous going through the Driver’s Handbook. That’s why our tests turn learning new things and retaining that knowledge into a game.

Don't study - play

The more you want to play, the better prepared for your test you’ll be. By the time you’ve mastered all our tests, you’ll be almost over-prepared for your G1 test.

Online and offline

Instead of wasting time when you’re stuck waiting around somewhere, study on your phone using our free app. The app features all the tests on the regular G1.ca website.

What's a G1 test?

Ontario G1 Test
All new drivers in Ontario must take a G1 knowledge test (also known as G1 written test). The official test is created by the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and is offered in all DriveTest Centres. The test is available on paper at all locations across Ontario, and on computer at some locations. No appointment is required (make sure you come at least one hour before the DriveTest centre closes though). There are 40 questions on the official G1 test, and they are all multiple choice. The test is not timed. You'll receive two test sheets, each with 20 questions. The first set of 20 questions is about road signs, while the second one is about the rules of the road. You'll need to get 16 or more questions right on each of those two sections in order to pass your G1 test (the total passing score for both sections is 80%). Your G1 knowledge test will be marked on the spot, and you'll receive your results immediately. The results of your G1 written test are valid for one year.

Honestly the best thing I used to study off of! I passed using this, complete all tests until you get perfect! You are guaranteed your g1. ~ Sam Villemaire

Fantastic test questions, I swear. I got 39 out of 40. G1.ca helps 100% if anyone wants to pass G1 exam. Amazing feelings! ~ Abdul Haseeb, Toronto

Passed today with only one mistake. Love this site, thanks so much! ~ Sarah Kester, Toronto

Ok so I just finished the official test and omg can I just say this was like so frickin’ easy. If you just skim through the pages roughly and do the practice tests on this website you are pretty much ready.~ Sonia Khan, Mississauga

Didn’t even read the books, passed my test with only one wrong. Great tool.~ Ethan Cowlan

I did my G1 today and got full marks. This test simulator was really helpful. My advice for people planning for G1 knowledge test is, 1st read the book as you read a newspaper, 2nd write aside any info with numbers (e.g. demerit points tables, any monetary fines, appropriate following distances etc) then solve all the test simulator questions and make sure that you pass them 100% successfully before exam day. Good luck for everyone.~ Myada Roshdi

I just passed today my written test. Thank you very much of this website. It gives you exact information that is in the actual written test.~ Nelie Swan

The questions are really very similar. If you study them and get results of 100% or very near this score, you will pass the test. For example, the question ‘When a streetcar is stopped to pick up or discharge passengers, and there is a safety island, what does the law require you to do?’ was not exactly the same. The correct answer mentioned that you must pass ON THE RIGHT SIDE of the streetcar. Thank you to G1.ca!~ Ana Cristina Azevedo

PASSED, all thanks to this website seriously suggest using it. Only got two wrong on my test.~ Aleesha Brown

I would recommend this website to all my friends, this website is amazing and is the reason I passed my G1 test. ~ Emily Sava, Toronto
