Communication and Phone Mounts

Safety on the road is paramount, and a sturdy phone mount is a must-have for drivers who rely on navigation apps or need hands-free communication. Look for mounts that attach securely to the dashboard or windshield and are adjustable to accommodate different phone sizes.

Organization Tools for Drivers

Keeping a vehicle organized is a challenge, especially for drivers constantly on the move. Consider gifting a car organizer that fits between seats or hangs from the back of seats, providing compartments for essentials like water bottles, documents, and snacks. A foldable trunk organizer can also help keep cargo neatly in place.

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.
