New bookings for Class 5 and 7 road tests available August 24
24 Aug 2020
ICBC has issued a news release reminding customers that starting Monday, August 24, new bookings for Class 5 and 7 road tests will be accepted.
New bookings were placed on hold as ICBC prioritized customers whose road tests were cancelled at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At this time, ICBC is only accepting customers who have a booked road test appointment. Walk-in or standby appointments are unavailable.
Class 5-8 road tests must be booked online using the road test booking service (for driving schools), or if students are booking their own test, ICBC strongly encourages all eligible customers to book a road test online at icbc.com.

A Reminder of what to expect for all road tests

Driver examiners are required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) for the duration of the road tests. ICBC will supply a mandatory medical grade mask for customers to wear during their road test. Customers are asked to maintain physical distance of 2 metres (6 feet) from ICBC employees and other customers wherever possible.
