It covers all the essential topics and rules of the road that you need to know to pass the knowledge test. It is available online or at any ICBC driver licensing office.
  2. Use online practice tests: There are many online practice tests available that can help you prepare for the ICBC Class 5 knowledge test. These practice tests are designed to simulate the actual test, and they can help you identify areas where you need more practice.
  3. Attend a driver training course: Taking a driver training course can help you prepare for the knowledge test and improve your driving skills. These courses cover all the topics in the Learn to Drive Smart guide and provide you with hands-on experience.
  4. Familiarize yourself with road signs and symbols: Knowing the different road signs and symbols is essential for safe driving. Take the time to study and understand the different signs and symbols that you may encounter on the road.
  5. Practice, practice, practice: The more you practice, the better prepared you will be for the knowledge test. Take the time to review the material, and then test yourself by taking practice tests or quizzes.

Preparing for the ICBC Class 5 knowledge test may seem daunting, but with the right preparation and practice, you can pass the test and obtain your driver’s license. Remember to take your time, study the material thoroughly, and seek help if you need it.

Obtaining Your Learner’s License (Class 7L)

Your first license as a new driver will be a learner’s permit, also referred to as a Class 7L. You must be at least 16 years old, pass a knowledge test, a vision test, and a medical exam in order to be considered for this license. The Class 7L license is good for two years, and you must retake the knowledge test to renew it.

Visit your neighborhood driver licensing office to apply for your learner’s license. Make sure to bring main and secondary identification, as well as a custodial parent or legal guardian if you are under the age of 19. (Unless you can apply for an exemption). Bring any necessary glasses or contact lenses, as well as the funds needed for the Class 7L license and knowledge test.

The knowledge test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions that assess your understanding of the information in the driver’s guide. The test is typically taken on a computer terminal, but in some areas, it may be offered as a written test. It is not an open-book test, and electronic devices are not allowed during the exam. The test is available in several languages, including English, French, Arabic, Cantonese, Croatian, Farsi, Mandarin, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese.

It is advised that if you plan to take the knowledge test, you get to the driver licensing office at least an hour before it closes. It is essential to phone in advance and let the licensing office know if you have a disability that would make it challenging for you to take the test. You will receive a Class 7L license, a L (Learner) sign and a copy of Tuning up for Drivers after passing the tests.

Vision and medical screening

To make sure you are physically capable of operating a vehicle safely, you must have a vision and medical examination before applying for a driver’s license. Your visual acuity, field of vision, depth perception, color vision, and double vision will all be evaluated. If corrective lenses are necessary for driving, this restriction will be shown on your license. A medical examination by a doctor may be required if there are any doubts about your physical fitness to operate a motor vehicle; Road Safety BC will receive the doctor’s report. You will also be asked about your medical history. There, the final choice about the issuance of a driver’s license will be made.

There are rules that must be followed while learning to drive, such as having a qualified supervisor who is at least 25 years old and who holds a valid Class 1, 2, 3, or 4 license sit by you at all times.

Additionally, you must not operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or other substances, including THC.

It is not permitted to use handheld or hands-free devices for communication while driving.

When you are driving, an official L (Learner) sign must be visible to drivers behind you, either in the rear windscreen or on the vehicle’s rear.

Your supervisor and one other passenger are the only people who are allowed to ride in the car. Between the hours of 5 a.m.

When you have a novice license, you may drive unsupervised with some restrictions, including:

  • Zero blood alcohol content: you must not drive after consuming any amount of alcohol.
  • Zero blood drug concentration: you must not operate a motor vehicle while having the presence of certain drugs, including cannabis (THC), in your body.
  • No hand-held or hands-free electronic devices: you must not use hand-held or hands-free communication devices (such as cellphones, music or portable gaming devices, or GPS systems) while driving.
  • N sign: you must display the official N (Novice) sign on the back windshield or rear of your vehicle when driving. This sign must be visible to drivers behind you. You’ll receive this sign when you get your Class 7 license.
  • Passenger limit: only one passenger may be in the vehicle with you, unless: a) the passengers are your immediate family (which includes your parents, children, spouse, brothers, sisters, and grandparents, including step and foster relationships), or b) if you are accompanied by a supervisor sitting beside you who is age 25 or older holding a valid Class 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 license, or c) if you are taking driver training and are supervised by a licensed driver training instructor.
