It's important to focus on the key concepts you need to know, and always study smart.
The Class 7 BC drivers license test, otherwise known as the BC knowledge test, is a written test that will assess whether you have a strong understanding of British Columbia's road signs and rules of the road. In addition to studying the information in the BC drivers handbook, knowing what to expect and how to attempt the actual Class 7 BC drivers license test, can really help you pass on your first try.
The British Columbia drivers handbook (called "Learn to Drive Smart") is your main source of information on BC's road signs and road rules. Make sure you dedicate a good amount of time to understanding the concepts explained in the BC driver's handbook, and thoroughly study the material.
If something doesn't make sense to you, either on the road signs or road rules sections, refer to the BC driving handbook for the most detailed information and/or research online. You can also ask questions in our comments section. Typically, someone will respond in a day or two.
Practice makes perfect, so the more BC drivers license practice test sets you master, the better. Our practice tests are designed to dramatically increase your chances of passing the BC knowledge test on your first attempt.
The ICBC, or Insurance Corporation of British Columbia is a provincial crown corporation responsible for driver licensing and insurance in the province of BC. The Class 7 BC learners test is a multiple choice test administered by the ICBC. Our BC drivers license practice test series has been carefully designed to look and feel just like the actual BC learners test (also known as the ICBC knowledge test).
The actual BC driving licence test is a multiple choice format exam with each question followed by four possible answers, only one of which is the correct answer. Study each question carefully, pay attention to the accompanying picture, read all four of the answers carefully and then select your answer. Take your time and allow yourself to choose the best possible answer without deciding too quickly.
Once you've passed your Class 7 BC driving licence test, as a new holder of a Class 7L licence (learners license), you now have the ability to start learning how to drive and practice your driving skills in on-road practice sessions. There are some key 7L licence restrictions and guidelines you must always follow in order to be a safe BC driver and stay within your learners licence obligations.
At the 7L stage you must always be accompanied by a fully licensed (Class 1,2,3,4 or 5 licensed) driver, 25 years or older and seated in the front seat.
Your blood alcohol levels must always be at zero which operating a vehicle at the Class 7L licensing level.
Passengers cannot exceed the number of working seat belts, and every passenger must wear a seat belt when the vehicle is in motion.
A 7L learner driver cannot drive even under supervision between the hours of midnight and 5 am.
The use of mobile phones, tablets or any other handheld devices is illegal and can result in an immediate licence suspension.
As per BC law, all 7L learner drivers must display an L sign (obtained from any ICBC licensing office) in rear window at all times.
At ICanDrive.ca, we strive to make sure you have everything you need to get your Class 7 learners licence in the most stress-free way possible. We've put together answers to what we've found to be the most frequently asked questions, to help all new BC drivers get their 7L license quickly and easily.
Once you've passed the 7L knowledge test, you can now start driving a car under the supervision of a fully licensed BC driver. You must remain at the 7L stage for a minimum of 12 months probation free before you can apply for the N (Novice) licence. To get your Class 7N licence, you'll need to pass the Class 7 road test.
In order to get a full unrestricted BC Class 5 licence, you will be required to take a Class 5 road test and demonstrate strong driving capability behind the wheel. You can take the Class 5 road test once you've been a Novice driver for 24 consecutive months without any issues.
The BC driver licensing journey is a three step process whereby new drivers move through each stage, building their driving knowledge and becoming experienced drivers. From the theoretical learning at the 7L stage and driving under supervision, and eventually getting their full Class 5 licence, all British Columbia drivers must work their way through the GDL process before they can get their unrestricted full BC driving licence.
