Class 7 (Learner's) Preparation
Penticton Driving School offers driving lessons with on the road training to start new drivers on their way to a lifetime of safe and responsible driving.
The first step is to qualify for your Learner's or Class 7L license. The Learner's licence is issued following successful completion of a written test. Contact ICBC or review their directions at the ICBC website
Once you have your Learner's License, it's time for training on the road.
With the Graduated Licensing System in BC, a new driver must spend a minimum of 12 months gaining driving experience before taking their road test. Your instructor will guide you through the skills needed to qualify for your Class 7 or "N" license.
When you practice between driving lessons, you must have a supervisor with you at least 25 years old with a valid Class 1 to 5 driver's license. To assist your supervisor, your instructor will provide a "Report Card" after each lesson to chart your progress and indicate skills needing extra practice.
The Road Test can be taken in your own car or one supplied by the school, and we can assist you in making arrangements for your test.
During your test, an ICBC examiner will observe and evaluate the skills you have learned, including:
Driving situations and rules of the road. Including starting, stopping, left and right turns, passing vehicles, uphill and downhill parking, driving through controlled and uncontrolled intersections, parallel parking and backing up, reverse stall parking, two point / three point U turns, pre-trip inspection of vehicle, hazard perception and other safe driving practices.
