ICBC announced today, June 10, that road tests will begin for commercial drivers starting next week.

Tests will be by appointment only with the phone lines opening tomorrow at 1-800-950-1498. An ICBC news release warns that callers can expect long delays. Priority will be given to those who had previous appointments cancelled between March 17 and March 30. The tests are for Class 1 through 4 licences.

“Customers are asked to arrive on-time for their appointment with the required identification and ensure the interior of their vehicle is clean,” the news release states. “Upon arrival, they will be asked a series of health screening questions and provided a mandatory medical-grade mask to wear for the duration of the road test. Driver examiners will continue to conduct road tests from inside the customer's vehicle to ensure the examiner is able to fully assess the road test and to take control of the vehicle in the event of an emergency.”

There was no mention in the news release of when ordinary, Class 5, driving tests will resume.
