What you need to know
To operate buses, including school buses, special activity buses, and special vehicles in British Columbia, you must have a Class 2 BC driver’s licence. A Class 2 licence allows you to transport any number of passengers while driving these types of vehicles. Take this practice test to get a feel of what the official knowledge exam will be like. You'll be answering multiple-choice questions that are very similar to the actual exam and based on the same official driver's handbook as the real thing. Good luck!
