24 Jul 2010 – Brampton Road Test
Checked for earlier schedule on other nearby locations, none available earlier than about a month.
At least I was able to know the fee would be 40$.
Still have to confirm if Í could get full G.
Projected G or G2 license by Christmas.
Need to wait for my nephew so I can use his credit card for online booking.

23 Jul 2010 – Brampton Road Test
Arrived almost an hour before my appointment.
Que for my appointment.
At my turn, was asked of car model and plate number.
Was then told to park car behind the office building and return with the parking number.
Que again for my parking number and was given G2 driving experience form and told to wait for the examiner.
Filled-up the form and goes back on que to confirm full G road test,
Was told that same G2 form needs to be filled up for the full G road test.
Waited for the examiner to arrive at appointed time.
Examiner arrive, called my name and told me to go in the and start it.
Was told to turn on the right/left signal lights and step on the brake for the lights checking.
After examiner checked that all lights are working, goes inside the car.
I was asked if I use glasses to drive and if I have any health problem, both questions answered with no.
I was also told that I won’t be asked to do illegal driving and I will be told well ahead of time before changing lane.
I was then asked to get out of the parking lot, given direction to turn left then right.
I was told to park by the roadside, which I did, putting my automatic gear on Park and acted like I’ve stepped on the foot brake.
I was then told to do the 3-point turn, which I did and was told to stop.
The examiner goes out of the car, fixed the cones in the road and I was asked to do the parallel parking.
I was then told to go ahead with the road test.
We drove to the highway and to the residential area.
There was a stop sign I missed because there was a vehicle following me.
At the right turn with red light, I asked the examiner if I can proceed.
He told me it’s up to me so I checked, ensured that it’s safe and proceeded.
That was a traffic violation recorded on my test result.
He also mentioned on turning, need to stay on right lane as left lanes are for passing.
I wanted to que again for next road test but the line is too long.
I decided to just go home and come back later to rebook.
Arriving home, I tried to book online but now I only have G2 option road test.
Seems like if you fail G test, you can only retest for G2.
Also, next earliest date is almost another month.
I decided to just visit their office again next day as they open at 8:30am.

Few things to keep in mind:
1. on parking, turn front wheel to the curb, unless sloping down and put on parking/hand brake. Remove parking/hand brake when going.
2. on 3 point turn, signal accordingly and check before turning, especially on blind spots.
3. On stop sign, full stop and make obvious left-right-left check.
4. On right turn with go signal light, slow down and make obvious right-left-right check.
5. On right turn with stop signal light, wait for the green light, that was my traffic violation.
6. And oh, while driving, check surroundings on all mirrors, including blind spots every 5 seconds.
