Road test re-examination

If your licence has been expired, cancelled or suspended for more than three years and you have not had another driver's licence during that time, ICBC will require a road test re-examination.

For drivers under the age of 65, the appropriate road test fee will be collected.

What to expect

You will first take a vision screening and road signs test before being issued a learners licence. There is no fee for the road signs test.

Any holds for outstanding fines, medicals, cancellations or prohibitions must first be satisfied.

If you have been licensed to operate several classes of vehicles, a road test using each type of vehicle will be required.

Should you wish to retain a previously held air brake endorsement you must also complete an air brake pre-trip inspection on an air brake equipped vehicle.

Your road test may be taken subject to appointment availability.
