FREE PE Class 2 (Bus) Commercial Licence Practice Test 2024

5 out of 5 • 2 votes.
Based on 2024 PE commercial driver's license manual Instant feedback

If you’re aiming to become a bus driver in Prince Edward Island, you’ll need a Class 2 Commercial Driver’s Licence. This license allows you to operate buses, including school buses, special activity buses, and special vehicles used to transport passengers. The demand for professional bus drivers is consistent, as they play a key role in public and private transportation sectors. To prepare for the road, thorough study and practice are vital. You must pass both knowledge and road tests to obtain your licence.

The knowledge test consists of multiple-choice questions based on the official Prince Edward Island Commercial Driver’s Guide, and you need to score at least 80% to pass — although this benchmark is subject to change as per Prince Edward Island Transportation regulations. The test typically takes about 30 minutes to complete. During the road test, you’ll demonstrate your practical skills in bus operation to an examiner.

While the official guide is an indispensable resource, practice tests offer the hands-on experience that reading alone cannot. This practice test, featuring 50 questions, is tailored for the Prince Edward Island Class 2 licence aspirants. It’s derived from the 2024 PE Commercial Driver’s Guide, and each question comes with an explanation to deepen your understanding of the rules. Good luck, and remember, safety is paramount when you’re in the driver’s seat!

Ensuring the accuracy and quality of our practice tests is paramount. Learn more about our rigorous standards in our Commitment to Accuracy article.
