About this test

This free ICBC knowledge practice test has just been updated for November 2023 and is designed to prepare you for the written portion of the BC driving test (also see our tips on passing the ICBC road test). It is based on the official "Learn to Drive Smart" manual and will quiz you on ICBC road signs and rules of the road, driving and parking regulations and techniques, vehicle licensing, and registration information in British Columbia. Each of the 50 knowledge test questions will provide four options to choose from. Take your time and rule out those unlikely ones: stick to the choice that seems to be the best and most logical way to answer the question. Should you make a mistake, the system will immediately prompt you to the correct answer - before you move on to the next multiple-choice question. You will only be allowed to make ten mistakes to pass this practice test, but you can always start it over to do even better next time. And remember to use our helpful hints if the right choice does not want to come easily!

British Columbia driver’s test and driver licensing

If you're aiming for your BC driver's license in Canada, following a structured approach and utilizing available resources will significantly increase your odds of success. Start with the "Learn to Drive Smart" manual; it's your go-to guide for the ICBC knowledge test, with free downloads in six languages, a mobile app, or physical copies at driver licensing offices.

Before the official exam, use this practice knowledge test. It mirrors the actual exam but with varied questions. If you miss the official ICBC knowledge test the first time, you can retake it after seven days for a fee.

New driver aiming for your 'L' or learner's license? You're eligible from your 16th birthday. If under 19, a guardian's consent is needed. After studying, book your written test at an ICBC office and pass the required vision screening. With your 'L', practice driving under supervision for at least a year.

Advancing to your 'N' or novice license requires passing the Class 7 road test. Adhere to GLP rules — no alcohol or drugs while driving, and no use of electronic devices, even hands-free.

Finally, for the full license, you need at least 24 months with your 'N', or 18 months if you've completed an ICBC-approved Canadian driver training course at a driving school and maintained a clean driving record. Then, pass the Class 5 road test. Remember, penalties for violations during the GLP stage are severe, so always drive responsibly.

In summary, study diligently, practice with the tools provided, and follow the GLP steps and requirements meticulously. Safe driving habits and adherence to regulations are your best path to full ICBC driver licensing.
