Road Testing
In order to be eligible for your Class 5 basic road test, you must hold the learner’s licence for 365 days. Completing driving school may help with your insurance rates, but will not decrease the length of time you are required to hold the learner’s licence. Depending on the date that you are eligible for the road test, you may pre-book the road test appointment to complete on the 1 year anniversary of your learner’s licence. But if you schedule the road test prior to the 1 year as a learner, you will not be able to go for the road test and the money paid for the road test will be forfeited.
