What Exactly is A DriveTest Centre?

(continued from previous post)

This is what the DriveTest Centre says about itself:

We are the new private operator of Ontario's 56 Driver Examination Centres, formerly managed by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation. Our DriveTest Centre teams are helping maintain Ontario's road safety record with great customer service, such as reducing waiting time for a road test appointment and more convenient operating hours. With streamlined service, you can focus on what's important: meeting all the requirements to obtain an Ontario driver's licence.

When I walked in I was surprised to see dozens of people milling about and others in several line-ups snaking through the building. 

Where do I ask my simple question?

My guess would be: you wait in line for 3-4 hours to get up to the counter, to have them tell you that they can't answer your question and you have to go somewhere else to get that question answered. But then that place sends you right back where you started because that is where the question is supposed to be answered. Then when you walk out of there and you still don't have your question answered at all. :) They call that government job security. :)
