    Maybe ride around the area a little bit this weekend to familiarize yourself it? That's what I would do.

    They were more worried about going too slow than too fast (except in park zones). I did 5+ the speed limit everywhere and 27kpr in park and school zones (on the advice of the instructors at PRS). Luckily you don't need to look out for the evil double school zones!

    It's probably like taking the class 6 anywhere else; relax and concentrate on what you're there to do and you'll do fine

    Good luck!

    it's super easy man .. just pay attention to the signs and cancel your signals and do your shoulder checks ..

    if you are super worried, go stake out the icbc location and follow another bike test vehicle

    I did mine in richmond, they will take you by construction zone(s), on the highway, school zones (may or may not be in session, ask your examiner ahead of time), playgrounds, make you to a u-turn and that's pretty much it.

    Also don't slow down to 30 in a playground unless the sign actually says speed limit 30. I believe if summer school is in session the school zone sign will say so, but better ask !

    if you can wheelie out of the icbc lot and endo in your parking spot that's an automatic pass.

    i didn't either when i took my class 6. but when it came time for test day, i felt comfortable. if i recall, prs books you a week before your test for a run-through of a mock test, right?

    Take the PRS mock test. It's not expensive at all. What more could you ask for?

    Yeah, everywhere! King George isn't (I believe it's 60) & park zones aren't, but unless otherwise listed, it's the speed limit.

    There is one double school zone you'll go through, as well as a pretty unique variable speed zone along fraser highway.

    I'd double-check with the ICBC examiner to be safe, but I don;t think they apply right now.

    School zones are not in effect right now, however, if you see a "SUMMER SCHOOL" sign underneath, the school zone speeds are in effect for that school only.

    You should really read your book again if you are asking questions like these !
