hey guys, finally, the days seems to be longer and getting sunnier! time to take the bike out of storage.
just got a question though. in the summer of 2004 i took riding lessons at Action, graded and got my class 8L. i'm planning to take my road test during this summer. do you know if they'll book it for me and everything?

Isn't the road test included with the lessons? Why didnt you take it then?

Since you have your own bike already, I would suggest to just go directly through icbc and book the test yourself.

i didn't take the road test right after my lessons because my earliest exam date was 12 months later.

All you have to do is phone them and ask for a date?. . .

Slacker, your care meter must be going up.

Well. . . that makes pretty good sense if you feel familiar with them.

Don't know what you ride now, but I'd think the comfort level on your own bike would be preferrable. That would of course depend on how much you ride. . . .

I booked mine through Pacific, and it was for 7 days following my course. I'd get out there and practice your techniques before doing the road test. The test is now 45 mins and is really quite involved. Everything from city, highway, school zones, playground zones, u-turns, hazard observation, etc...

well...class 5 and class 6 are pretty much the same license for different vehicles...so it's pretty much the same test...but on a bike...and they look for technique too


if you got your class 8L in summer 2004...is your license expired?

Agreed. The tester reminded me that they are not only testing my motorcyle skills, but also my general driving skills as well. There are lots of simple actions that are an immediate fail (blocking a crosswalk, changing lanes over a solid line, speeding, etc...)
