Have you had your G2 license for 2 years and want to take the road test to get your full G license? Kruzee’s got your back. 

To help you ace your full G road test on the first try, Kruzee talked to two of our best driving instructors, Cory Froklage and Zainab Qiam, to find out what advice they give students before their G road test. 

While Cory says most of his students are coming for help on the G2, he does get a good amount of students looking for guidance for their G tests. If this is you, read on!

What is the G test? 

The G road test, otherwise known as the G2 exit test, is a test you take after you’ve had your G2 for 12 months. The test allows you to drive with fewer restrictions. Learn more about getting your G1, G2, and G licenses.

Examiners will take you onto the freeway to test your skills at merging, passing, changing lanes, and exiting the freeway. Cory says the G is usually longer, around 30 minutes, and mainly tests your freeway driving. Otherwise, the test is similar to the G2 test (otherwise known as the G1 exit test). 

4 essential tips for passing your G test

  1. Read our tips for taking the G2 road test.

    Both Cory and Zainab say that examiners are looking for a lot of the same things on the G2 and G tests. The tips you got in that article  — practicing in your testing area, being a proactive driver, listening to commands from your examiner, etc. — will all come in handy when you’re preparing to take your G. 

  2. Book driving lessons.

    While you’ve got a lot more experience with driving now that you’ve had your G2 for a few years, Cory and Zainab say that the G road test holds you to a higher standard than the G2. A driving instructor can do a test simulation and identify areas you may need to work on before the test. Learn more about booking a Kruzee driving instructor.

  3. Practice driving on the freeway.

    Zainab says that freeway driving is the most important thing to practice before taking the test. Practice merging, driving on the freeway, and exiting.

  4. Pay attention to your head movements, especially while merging.

    Cory says proper head movements are especially important for the G. Be sure to check your surroundings before you merge, change lanes, or exit the highway.
