Study smart and focus primarily on the key concepts you need to know for the Class 7 Service NB drivers test.
The New Brunswick drivers permit test is a written test that evaluates whether you have a good enough understanding of New Brunswick's road signs and road rules, to be allowed to begin the process of learning to drive on the public roads and highways. In addition to learning the information contained in the New Brunswick drivers handbook, knowing what to expect on the actual Class 7 NB drivers test (NB driving knowledge test) and practicing NB driving test sets can really help you pass on your first attempt. Aiming to pass on the first attempt should be your objective since each re-test attempt costs more money.
Make sure you dedicate a good amount of time to learning the material and understanding the concepts as explained in the New Brunswick Drivers Handbook. The New Brunswick driver's handbook should be your main source of information on NB's road signs and road rules.
Refer to the NB drivers handbook for the most detailed information if something doesn't make sense either on the road signs or road tests sections. You can also ask questions in our comments section (we typically respond in a day or two). Researching information on the New Brunswick Department of Public Safety website is also a great resource.
As we've all heard before, "practice makes perfect", so the more of our New Brunswick practice permit test sets you can master, the better. They will dramatically increase your chances of passing the Class 7 Service NB drivers license test on your first attempt.
The real New Brunswick drivers permit test is presented in a multiple choice format - just like the ICanDrive.ca series of New Brunswick drivers permit practice test sets.
Each of the 40 questions has four possible answers, only one of which is the correct answer. While there are no trick questions, some answers may seem quite similar at first glance, so read each question carefully. Take your time and choose the best possible answer without deciding too quickly. Our New Brunswick practice permit test series will give you a lot of experience with the many different kinds of questions that could appear on your actual New Brunswick drivers permit test - it's simply the best way to prepare for the NB beginners test.
Once you've passed the permit test NB mandates, as a new holder of a Class 7 licence, you now have the ability to begin learning how to drive and practice your driving skills, in real life, on-road practice sessions. There are some important Class 7 license guidelines and restrictions you must adhere to in order to be a safe and stay within the NB Graduated Driver's Licence requirements:
At the Class 7 Level 1 stage, you must always be accompanied by a fully licensed (Class 5 non-GDL) driver, 18 years or older with a minimum of 3 years driving experience, who is seated in the front seat.
Blood alcohol levels must always be at zero when operating a vehicle at the Class 7 Learner licensing level and you could lose your licence if your caught drinking and driving in NB.
At a Class 7 Level 1 licensing level you are not allowed to operate a vehicle between the hours of midnight and 5 am.
Aside from the supervising driving no other passengers (family members or otherwise) are allowed to be in the vehicle with you.
No handheld devices (cellphones, tablets etc) are allowed when your driving and you could face an immediate licence suspension if charged with distracted driving.
Use as much of the time at this stage to practice driving and really build a strong driving profile for your road test.
The team at ICanDrive.ca strives to make sure we provide all the information you need to get your NB learners licence in a way that is as easy and stress free as possible. We've put together some answers to what we've found to be the most commonly asked questions, not only about the NB beginners test, but also about our New Brunswick practice permit test series.
Once you've passed the 7L permit test, you get to the fun part - practicing how to drive. However, you can only drive under the supervision of a fully licensed NB driver sitting in the front seat. You must remain at the 7L stage for a minimum of 12 months (8 months with driver training) probation free before you can apply for your next licence.
In order to move to the Class 7 Level 2 stage you will be required to take a road test, demonstrating excellent driving ability and control of your vehicle.
New drivers learning how to drive in NB move through a three stage process, which builds driving knowledge over time. From the theoretical learning at the Class 7 Level 1 stage to driving under supervision and eventually getting their full Class 5 licence, all New Brunswick drivers must work their way through the GDL process before they can get their full unrestricted NB driving licence. The NB GDL process is actually an excellent way to introduce new drivers to the roads of New Brunswick while keeping other users of the roads as safe as possible.
