The Nova Scotia learners test is a multiple choice driving knowledge exam covering a wide variety of questions regarding NS rules of the road, traffic safety and the road signs.
As mentioned above, the questions on the Nova Scotia learners test are presented in a multiple choice format. Each question is followed by four possible answers, with only one being the correct answer. It's important to take the time to read each question carefully, as well as read all four of the answers just as carefully (pay attention to the picture if one exists) and then select your answer. Gaining as much experience as possible with our Nova Scotia learners test practice series will expose you to all of the different kinds of questions that could appear on the actual NS learners test.
Once you've obtained your Nova Scotia learner's driving licence, you now have the legal right to begin learning how to drive and practice your driving skills in real life. There are however some key NS learner licence restrictions and guidelines you must follow to stay within your licence requirements, and be a safe driver to everyone on the road.
At the Nova Scotia learners license stage, you have to be accompanied by a fully licensed (Class 5 non-GDL) driver who is seated in the front seat every time you practice your driving - no exceptions.
Your blood alcohol levels must always be at zero when driving a vehicle at the learners license level.
Each passenger must wear a seat belt when the vehicle is moving. Also, the number of passengers cannot exceed the number of functional seat belts.
A learner licence holder cannot drive even while under supervision between the hours of midnight and 5 am.
A NS learner's licence will be automatically suspended if 8 demerit points are accumulated.
