Drive Test Ontario: How to Pass Your G (and G2) Road Tests

Your postal code and insurance premiums

In Ontario, location matters. At least for your auto insurance.

It is well known that where you live impacts your insurance rates: if you live in highly congested, urban areas, you will pay more than your friend in the country. That makes a lot of sense considering you are more likely to be involved in an accident in those settings. Other factors that also drive this trend are higher payouts to urbanites: more expensive cars, higher rates of insurance fraud.





If an MPP from Brampton has his way, this won't be the case anymore.

The conservative government in Ontario is looking into eliminating location-based insurance rates. The rationale being we should not penalize people for living in a certain area.

This will be welcome news for residents of Brampton where insurance rates are astronomically high (accidents and insurance fraud are very widespread). It will also be welcome news for residents of other, high-paying areas like Mississauga and Hamilton. However, this also means your r…

G2 Road Test Route Map If you have not already done so, check out our article on tips for passing your G/G2 road tests!

The Mississauga DriveTest opened up in August 2018, and we are putting up the practice maps below.

It is always a good idea to be familiar with the route taken for your driving test in Mississauga. We have posted the map below as well written directions for the route reported by test-takers. This route is one of the most common taken for the exam, but it is possible you might have slight variations on the routeDriving instructors and schools are familiar with the routes and will charge you money to take you there. We figured we'd put them up for free here as a public service. Ultimately, the most important thing you need to do is learn how to take a road test regardless of route.

We also offer the same map with GPS coordinates so you can practise as many times as you want.

Ontario's New Driving Penalities

Distracted driving has been a growing problem in Ontario for the past decade. Recent statistics from Ontario's Ministry of Transport shows an average of 48 collisions a day attributed to distracted driving. These numbers have doubled in the past decade, likely in line with the increasing prevalence of cellphones and other electronic devices in modern cars.

To combat this problem, Ontario has passed several laws making it illegal to hold a phone or any other device while driving. It is simply illegal just to hold them, let alone use them.

But there are exceptions to the rule, as long as they are done safely. You can use:
Any hands-free device (e.g. Bluetooth) but only to turn it on and offa mounted device (e.g. phone, GPS) as long as it is secure  – not moving around while drivingNew penalties
Much has been made of the new, stiffer penalities which came to effect January 2019. These include, for first conviction, a fine of $615, if settled out of court (or a fine of up to $1,000 if …

Guest Post: Artificial Intelligence and Medicine

Guest posts: we sometimes publish posts on a diverse range of topics by contributing authors. Feel free to contact us with any suggestions and we would be happy to consider them


One of the biggest debates raging within medicine has nothing to do with treatments or patients: it has to do with the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in shaping medicine.

Objectively, a computer can process thousands of medical journals, trials, and medications out there and output a solution as good as or even superior to that of a human physician. However, besides lacking empathy and the human connection, AI would lack the judgement calls necessary to apply treatment decisions to patients.

For instance, take the field of oncology. While AI can devise a treatment plan based on probability of response, it would not understand if the patient might be too frail to undergo the treatment, or prefer to delay the treatment until after the patient's daughter's wedding. Some patients might be concerned a…
