Road Tests

2023 Road Testing

Registration for Road Testing and Pre-Test simulator sessions will be open on February 2, 2023.

Please note: Our registration calendar will only accept appointments up to 8 weeks in advance. Our last day of road testing for 2023 will be November 3rd, and registration for this day will open up 8 weeks prior.

ICBC will only test you if the following conditions are met:

  1. You must submit your ProRIDE MSA paperwork In Person for processing at an ICBC Licensing Office and have your speed and supervisor restrictions lifted;
  2. Remember that they will only accept this document until 90 days after it was issued (the day of your parking lot test);
  3. You must book your Road Test for a date which falls On or After the “Earliest Road Test Date” printed on your Learner’s License.

ICBC will send you home without testing if you show up for a road test and one or more of the above conditions are not satisfied.  Please be diligent and thorough. Also, make certain to read our article on How to Pass the ICBC Motorcycle Road Test, as well as review the Road Test Cheat Sheet (found in the back of your ProRIDE textbook) to ensure you are prepared to challenge this test.

You have the option of booking your road test through ProRIDE or directly with ICBC:

  1. Booking directly with ICBC gives you access to virtually all testing centres across Metro Vancouver, as well as across BC; we encourage you to explore this option if you are looking for the earliest possible test date;
  2. ProRIDE road tests are booked at ICBC in Burnaby only.

Please note: ICBC will not permit you to make more than one booking; you may book through ProRIDE or through ICBC, but not both.

Frequently Asked Questions

Road Test FAQ

Road testing for ProRIDE begins in March, and concludes in November. We are now accepting bookings for the road test.
ICBC provides ProRIDE with dedicated road test times each year for our students, starting in the springtime and concluding usually in November. You’ll be given the opportunity to book a road test through ProRIDE once you’ve completed your Survival Rider Training Course. Oftentimes students are able to secure a test date through our system as much as a month earlier than booking a test through the public system. That said, after completing the Survival Rider course, we encourage students to ride 1000kms or more before challenging the ICBC Road Test, as you are more likely to pass on the 1st attempt with significant road time under your seat. Please Note:
  • The licensing process can take several months.  ICBC requires that you complete your road test before the Expiry Date printed on your learner’s license; please monitor this date closely.  Students with time constraints are encouraged to discuss your needs with ProRIDE administration at your earliest opportunity.
  • Road test demand often exceeds supply. ProRIDE can make no guarantees regarding the timeliness of road test availability after the course.  It is wise to plan several months ahead for road testing.
There are several testing centres in Metro Vancouver; you may book a road test at any testing centre in BC, however ProRIDE's private testing schedule is provided by ICBC Burnaby on Lougheed Highway.

Most students have their own bike long before the road test is on their radar, and we encourage you to ride and practice on your bike before the test. For students who need a bike for the test, ProRIDE training bikes are available on a rental basis.

That said, on the road test you will be marked on such things as shoulder checking, decision-making, and riding in traffic, as well as rules, lines & signs. These skills are what is emphasized on the test, regardless of which bike you ride.

ICBC will conduct your road test "Rain-or-Shine".  Many students cancel their test in the rain, but keep in mind the following:
  • ICBC charges a fee of $25 for cancellations taken within 48 hours of the appointment time
  • If you cancel your test it may be several months again before you can book another one.
It's a good idea to practice riding in the rain before test day to make sure that you are prepared to meet this challenge if it rains on test day. ProRIDE provides Rain Gear for those rainy test days, or bring your own.
There's always a chance for a last minute cancellation, however we do not keep a wait list.  In fairness to all students, cancellations are published on our website and social media channels and filled on a 1st-come-1st-served basis.  You should actively monitor our website and Social Media and be ready to jump on any cancellations that may come up. If you have your own bike then you have the option of rolling in to ICBC and checking-in on Standby.  If there is a last-minute cancellation or no-show then they offer the spot to anyone checked-in on standby.  It's definitely a gamble, as you could be waiting all day for a cancellation that may never come.  Your best bet for this is on a rainy day.
You may cancel your test on up to 48-hours notice without penalty. ICBC charges a $25 fee for late cancellations or no-shows. Keep in mind if you cancel your test it may be several months again before you can book another one.  Please make certain to plan ahead.
Your ICBC Road Test is *not* paid for with your course tuition. ICBC charges a Road Test Fee to provide road test services, and this fee is not covered in your course tuition. We do not pay ICBC on your behalf. Please come prepared to on test day to submit your Road Test Fee to ICBC, in addition to any fines, tolls, or tickets.

The demand for testing often exceeds the available supply. We have been managing the backlog by only booking 6 weeks out. Road Test bookings open up each week on Wednesday and Thursday at midnight for Wednesday and Thursday in 6 weeks, and the spots that open up tend to fill up within minutes.

It is fair to say that the number of students attempting to book in exceeds the number of spots available each day. As a result it stands to reason that not everybody who is up at that hour will be successful in booking a spot.

In addition to checking back at midnight each Wednesday & Thursday, we encourage you to monitor both our calendar as well as the public system and see if any cancellations come up. Cancellations on the ProRIDE system are shown instantly in real-time so you wouldn't have to wait until midnight to see cancellations.
