Well to sum it up Im a lazy procrastinating son of a bitch.

I did my MST with pacific in August/2014. I passed and stuffed my PRS scoresheet in my riding jacket and left it there for the winter.

Last week I walk into icbc with my Interim and MST certificate wait about 40 mins in line just to find out I'm a dumbass and the MST cert is only good for 90 days.

So I've booked another MST test at the Burnaby location may 20th @ 1:45 I've been riding all April and May unsupervised my question is will icbc deny me from doing the MST if I show up unsupervised?

I'm pretty sure I can get a family member to help me out if not could someone on the board meet me up for my test?

I'm hoping icbc won't be too strict with it did anyone here show up to there MST unsupervised.

Cheers

Well recently it seems they're more strict. If they suspect that you got there on your own unsupervised, they may deny testing you.... and then.... they'll make sure you don't leave the lot without a supervisor.


I used to take the chance, but probably no longer a good idea.

Agreed..... it's "their" little world and they do have the power to fail you....right or wrong. You can always trailer your bike there if you have the ability.

got a family member to come with me for the 20th but I am going to make sure he stays out of sight from the tester and only identify him if the tester asks...just to see if the tester asks

When I took mine I had my buddy waiting for me and neither the person inside or the instructor asked for my supervisor.

Obviously its best to ride with one though especially if you require it.

When I took a friend for his test they asked him to point me out as his escort to make sure he didnt ride there on his own..

Worst that can happen is they deny you..........an seems you don't care already so........go for it?
Worst that can happen is policeman happens to be there and watches you then gives you a ticket after you fail your test and you have to leave your bike there and take the extra long stretch limo home.

I got my learners permit by taking the knowledge test last summer allowing me to ride supervised only. Later on in the same summer I took PRS new rider course/MST.

After you pass the MST you are given a score sheet good for 90 days! You take this sheet to an icbc licensing center along with the interim learners permit, they stamp stuff and now you can legally ride unsupervised during the day but no passengers. I think this is the novice stage.

I took my MST score sheet to icbc to try to get my novice license but because it was expired had to redo the MST

if I remember correctly, there is still the daylight hours restriction as well after you pass the mst.

Has the procedure change from the old, 1) get mc learners L. 2) take a safety course and get a Novice from the school. 3) go to ICBC, after booking your road test and take the road test. If you pass you have your MC licence. What have I missed? I didn't mention any restrictions. Also, if possible buy your bike even before the school so with your Novice you can practise on your own bike.

Well for Class 5 holders it's still the same. Write your exam and the restrictions are (speed limit of 60kph, no passengers, dawn till dusk, ride under supervision of a 25 year or older Class 6 holder), then after your MST you only have the no passenger and dawn till dusk restrictions. After the road exam there are no restrictions.

As for timing you can go for your MST two weeks after writing your exam and your full license two weeks after your MST (that is if there is even a spot).
