|ICBC resumes commercial vehicle road testing |
This morning ICBC announced that beginning June 11, customers will be able to book road test appointments for Class 1-4, airbrakes or heavy trailers (endorsement 20) by calling 1-800-950-1498 or 250-978-8300.
ICBC anticipates some road tests will be conducted by the end of next week. Customers whose Class 1-4 road tests were cancelled between March 17 and 30 will be called by ICBC to prioritize their appointment. Customers are asked for their patience as high call volumes are anticipated.
Road testing is going to look different. Driver examiners will be required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) for the duration of the road tests. They will have access to a combination of equipment including masks, shields, goggles, gloves and disposable seat covers. ICBC will also provide a mandatory medical grade mask for customers to wear during the road tests.
Customers are asked to arrive 15 minutes before their road test appointment and ensure they:
Have required identification
Be prepared for health screening questions
Ensure the interior of their vehicle is clean,
Maintain physical distance of 2 metres (6 feet) from ICBC representatives when possible.
Drivers who do not follow the required guidelines will result in the road test being suspended, as the health and safety of our employees and customers are paramount. To date, ICBC states they have secured sufficient PPE for this initial phase. ICBC has a plan in place to expand the availability of road tests to other classes of licences as soon as possible which will be dependent on the roll-out of this initial phase and the ability to secure sufficient PPE for our employees and customers.
Contact ICBC if you have any questions.
