Cooking/Food on the Go

For those who consider their rig their second home, cooking on the road is a necessity. A portable slow cooker or a reliable 12V microwave can turn their cabin into a culinary haven. Additionally, investing in a sturdy cooler or a mini-fridge can keep their snacks fresh and their beverages cool during those long hauls through the Great White North.

Entertainment for Long-Haul Drivers

Entertainment is essential for those marathon drives. Consider gifting audiobooks, a subscription to a music streaming service, or noise-canceling headphones to keep them entertained and focused during those lengthy stretches on the road. A portable DVD player or a tablet loaded with their favorite movies and TV shows can also provide a much-needed escape during rest stops.

General drivers’ gift categories

We do our best to keep the questions current and accurate. The testing centers may change the questions on the knowledge tests at any time. Always be prepared for surprises.

Many of the answers to the questions can be found in the driver handbooks or learning materials your province provides.

DISCLAIMER: CDHQ is not affiliated with the provinces or any test centers. These practice tests should not be considered official tests and you are not granted a license for completing them. Our tests are simply a practice tool to help prepare yourself for the real test.
