Governor's Drive in Dasmariñas.

Governor's Drive towards the provincial boundary with Laguna starts near SM City Dasmariñas at the Palapala intersection with Aguinaldo Highway. It then winds eastward, as it nears Manila Memorial Park, just on the side of the highway. It intersects Paliparan Road and then enters General Mariano Alvarez through a bridge on the Dasmariñas-GMA boundary. It passes through GMA's town centre before curving northeast at the GMA-Carmona boundary. At Carmona, it mostly runs through the town's industrial areas and bypasses the town centre on the north. It soon crosses the South Luzon Expressway and enters Biñan, where it continues as General Malvar Street. The Bay-Biñan transmission line of National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) will parallel the highway from SLEX to Biñan Substation.

Governor's Drive toward Ternate starts also at the intersection with Aguinaldo Highway at Palapala, near Robinsons Place Dasmariñas. It is mostly a 6-lane highway when it runs westward towards General Trias. The highway passes through the western barangays of Dasmariñas, and then enters General Trias. It soon intersects Arnaldo Highway near the San Miguel and Purefoods-Hormel factories. The highway soon crosses Crisanto Mendoza de los Reyes Avenue at Manggahan. Then, it enters Trece Martires at Pulunan Bridge. Afterwards, it passes over Trece Martires city proper and continues toward Naic.

After passing Trece Martires, Governor's Drive continues westward on a slightly winding route toward Naic. It soon enters Naic, turns left toward Ternate, and intersects with Naic-Indang Road. The highway follows a straight route, turning right and soon ends at the bridge over the Maragondon River near Ternate.
