Reminder: Swapping students enrolled in GLP course at time of road test
19 Mar 2021
In September 2020, driver training schools that deliver an ICBC (GLP)-approved driver education course were advised that they may swap a student for another student at time of road test if both are enrolled in the school’s approved course and the original road test booking was made by your school.
If you wish to swap a student for a road test, follow these important guidelines:
- When your instructors attends a driver licensing office and intends to swap students for a booking, go to the service counter with your student at road test set-up to provide information on the originally booked student.
No proof of approved course enrollment is required when attending with an alternate student; however, ICBC will record the swap for tracking purposes and you’ll be asked to provide a reason.
- Use student swapping sparingly such as when the original booked student is sick or you have determined they are not prepared for their road test.
- Ensure that tracking sheets are kept confidential and no information is shared between students.
- Any future road test appointments for students that have passed their road test need to be cancelled.
