Standby road tests available

If you have a flexible schedule and are comfortable with waiting at one of our driver licensing offices,​ a standby road test may be a convenient option. 

Book your car or motorcycle road test

You can book, reschedule or cancel your Class 5, 6, 7, 8 road test appointment or Motorcycle Skills test online. If you're exchanging your licence from a non-reciprocal country​ and have not yet been issued an interim driver's licence, contact our driver licensing information line​ to book your road test.

If you have to cancel, please give us 48 hours’ notice, otherwise there is a $25 cancellation fee.​​ If you need to change your appointment from outside Canada or the United States, please call our driver licensing information line to cancel or reschedule.

For cars and motorcycle testing, the earliest date you can take the test is listed on your licence. Try to book well in advance, as our offices can get busy especially during spring and summer.

As people cancel or reschedule, new appointments on earlier dates may become available. Please note that calling to book or reschedule an appointment will not result in different available times than booking online.

Motorcycle road or skills tests are only available at certain locations.​

Selecting the gender of your driver examiner 

As part of ICBC’s commitment to Reconciliation, customers can select the gender of their driver examiner when checking in for their road test. 

This option is intended to reduce the impacts of vehicle-related trauma that customers may have experienced. Anyone can make this request, and you won’t be asked to provide a reason. 

When you select the gender of your driver examiner, we will try to accommodate your request whenever possible. If we can’t accommodate the request that day, we can reschedule your road test with no late cancellation fees

Book your medical re-exam

To book or change your medical re-exam road test, please call our driver licensing information line.​ These appointments cannot be booked or updated online.

Standby road tests​

Standby road tests are available if other customers cancel or don't show up for their appointments, so we can't guarantee that spots will always be available. However, we'll try our best to accommodate you.

Want to try standing by for a road test? Here's how it works:

  1. Find an ICBC location that offers the type of road test you need on standby from the lists below.
