ICBC is adding up to 100 temporary driver examiners and expanding to 10 additional locations to help decrease the wait times for road tests.

These measures will help ICBC conduct tests that were cancelled due to COVID-19, as well as meet the demand for new road test appointments.

To meet the geographical demands, most of the additional examiners are in the Lower Mainland and Southern Vancouver Island regions, none of them are near Prince George.

ICBC customers can book Class 5 and 7 road tests online, but Commercial (Class 1-4) road tests must be booked by phone.

Driver examiners are required to wear PPE for the duration of the road tests, and ICBC will supply masks for customers to wear.

ICBC will be accepting new bookings for road tests on August 24.
