Questions designed to feel just like the real driving test
Specific to your province
Each Canadian province or territory has its own traffic laws, so you'll want to prepare using accurate questions that are based on your province's driver's guide. Our questions come directly from that guide, which makes them very similar to the actual driving test.
Current and correct
Our practice tests are written using the latest version of the Handbook, so they’re always up-to-date. When your province or territory updates their manual, we update our questions as well. You’re never dealing with outdated test information.
Just like the real exam
Since we design our questions and test structure to imitate the real exam, you’ll be better prepared than if you just study using the manual alone.

Driving Test Explained
What Is a Driving Test?
A driving test, also known as a driving exam or a driver's test, is a procedure designed to assess an individual's ability to operate a motor vehicle, including passenger cars, motorcycles, or commercial vehicles. In Canada, successfully passing a driving test is typically one of the prerequisites for obtaining a driver's licence. The responsibility for administering driving tests and issuing driver's licenses falls to the provincial governments. The driving test is comprised of two parts: a written knowledge test (or "written exam") with multiple-choice questions that evaluate knowledge of driving rules and laws, and a practical behind-the-wheel test (also known as a "road test" or "skills test") to assess safe driving capabilities. The written test draws from the official Driver's Licence Manual, covering topics such as road rules, traffic laws and signs, penalties, limits, and safe driving practices.
Things to remember
What to Practice for the Driving Test?
Know your car
The car you're using for your test should be familiar to you, and not one that you're sitting in for the first time. You'll want to know where the controls are for everything from the lights to the windshield wipers, so you aren't frantically searching if it starts raining. The way each car's brake and gas pedals react can be different, so knowing how sensitive these are can help you avoid braking or accelerating too aggressively or too slowly.
Get plenty of practice
Like anything else, learning how to be a good driver takes lots of time behind the wheel practicing. There are things you'll learn while driving that you just can't get from reading, so it's important to log plenty of time at the wheel.
Prepare and adapt to anything
Whether it's weather conditions, an ambulance coming down the road or any other situation that could happen, you should be mentally prepared to adapt and adjust accordingly. The only true way to do this is get in those hours of practice driving, and trying to do so in a variety of weather conditions. Only getting out to drive on beautiful, sunny days will only work against you if your test lands on a rainy, overcast day.
Pay attention to driving
It sounds obvious enough, but it's easy to get distracted by what the evaluator is doing. Trying to sneak a peek at what they're writing down or their facial expressions is not a good idea, if you're hoping to walk out of there a licensed driver. Paying attention to the road, and what's happening around you is the best way to ensure that whatever the examiner is writing down is positive – and you can read all of that once your test is over anyway. Leave everything else at the door, and give your full attention to the task at hand. Whether it's schoolwork or other things happening in your life, it needs to be temporarily put to the back of your mind.
Safe driving tips
Drive the speed limit and maintain a constant speed.
Obey all road signs that you see.
Steer smoothly. Hold onto the steering wheel with both hands at all times.
Follow at a safe distance - use the 3 second rule.
Don’t stop too closely to the vehicle in front of you when you need to come to a stop. As a general rule, you should be able to see the tires of the car in front of you.
Do not cross solid lines as this will result in an instant and automatic fail.
Always look over your shoulder before changing lanes and be sure to use your blinker.
Only change lanes when you are absolutely certain that it is safe. If your test administrator asks you to change lanes, make sure that it is safe first.
Watch for school busses. If the bus is pulled over to the side of the road and their lights are flashing, do not pass.
Use your turn signals. It helps let other drivers know what you are planning on doing. Make sure that you turn your turn signal on plenty of time before you are actually going to turn.

"These questions are literally the same you'll find in the test"
“Well let's put it this way: I skimmed through the official book, and it's very dry and difficult to prepare with. Used Premium for 3 days, for a total of no more than 4 hours, passed the test without a single mistake... These questions are literally the same you'll find in the test so I strongly recommend you focus on them and just get the book for reference.”
"Great way to prepare for the knowledge test"
Great way for me to prepare for the knowledge test. Friendly user interface and I especially love the challenge bank!
"I passed full marks"
Thank goodness for this. Wow! You made it easy. Who needs to study the book? I passed full marks.
"The study method is excellent"
I am Brazilian and the traffic rules in Brazil are different from Canada. And as I enjoyed taking the free sample tests, I decided to buy the course. The study method is excellent and the site is super interactive.
"Passed fully in 3 days!"
Honestly, I was not ready for my exam at all, I was looking on other websites, but they were not sufficient for me. Ran into this, was willing to take the risk and see how this site does, and I am glad I did, because 3 days later, I passed.
