You'll need to prepare for your knowledge test! There's a textbook, Learn to Drive Smart and you can watch ICBC's video lessons and taking their practice test.
I'm finally 16 and I really want to get my driver's licence but I don't know where to start.
Yes! You take the road signs & common sense test at an ICBC office. Bring your ID, signed parent/ guardian consent form (if under 19) and test fees. If you don't pass with 80%, you can do it again!
How would you take the knowledge test? If you pass you'd get your 'L' licence, right?
I have my 'L' licence now! They say it takes 1 year before I can take the road test for my 'N' licence. You're over 25 years old and have a class 5 licence, can you supervise me when I drive?
Of course! You must follow the rules they give you: keep the 'L' sign visible at the car's rear, no alcohol intake or electronics, 1 passenger excluding supervisor who has to be 25+ years old and have class 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 licence
Don't worry, the examiner isn't looking for perfection they want to see your safe driving skills. If you don't pass it's alright, you can retake it in 2 weeks. Don't forget your ID and 'L' licence!
I'm ready for my class 7 and 'N' licence, I've been practicing for a year in different conditions and situations, reading textbooks and no penalties. The road test takes 45 minutes so it'll be 45 minutes of nervousness!
Good job! Rules are almost the same as having an 'L' licence this time, you can have all immediate family in your car but if it's not family then 1 person excluding supervisor. Remember no phones unless you're calling 911.
Hooray! I have my 'N' licence! Two years until the last step to getting my driver's licence!
Two years of practice without penalties and now I'm taking the 45 minute class 5 road test. I watched video lessons, taken practice tests, read textbooks and practiced my skills, I think I'm ready I brought my ID, 'N' licence, test fees and car.
Great! They'll check your car to make sure it's safe and you know the parts then you're on the road; they'll ask you about hazards and your skills. Then you come back and get feedback! You can rebook if you didn't do well but I'm sure you will! Good luck with the last step!
