And the choice of which road test is entirely up to the person, provided the person is eligible to take it.
So, yup, it is possible to get a Class 6 licence without actually having taken a Class 6 road test.
Can you get a Class 8 in time?
An 8L licence is valid for two years.
Here is ICBC's webpage on how to get a 8L, 8, and 6 licences:
Bulk of the time limits are given in this pdf:
If your L or N licence does expire, after you obtain a Class 5, the time limits are different again if you are not with a ICBC approved Riding School.
