  • When can I do my Road Test?
  • Can I get on a wait list?

We had to discontinue group class training in March 2020 when BC implemented the State of Emergency for CoVid-19.

With the rest of BC now moving into Phase 3 of the BC Restart Plan, ProRIDE is also continuing to resume our services, compliant with directives issued by the public health office.

To that end, Survival Rider group classes are now underway; Classes may be booked here:

Reminder that a motorcycle learner's license is required to start training. Going forward, knowledge testing for motorcycle learner's licenses will be available by appointment only, and ICBC will be taking appointments by phone.

MSA Retests will also be available for students who’s licenses have expired, but you must first obtain a NEW learner’s license (ie. re-do knowledge test) at ICBC before coming to see us for the parking lot test. We absolutely cannot retest you on an old or expired learner’s license! More info, or to book:

We are continuing to work on restoring additional suspended services as BC moves into the next phase of the BC Restart Plan. Those who are following our newsfeed on Facebook or Twitter will be notified *instantly* when we make those announcements.

Please note below which services are restored and which services remain suspended:

  • Survival Rider Courses – Now Booking
  • MSA Retesting – Now Booking
  • Traffic Classes – Now Booking
  • Short-term Bike Rentals – Now Booking
  • Skills Upgrade Classes – Now Booking
  • Road Testing – Now Booking
  • Pre-Test Simulator Sessions – Now Booking
  • Maintenance Classes – Suspended
  • Skills Test Prep Class – Suspended
  • Road Test Prep Class – Suspended

Any student who had paid for a suspended service will receive a credit for that service which can be used when service is restored.

Please note that Capilano University's indoor facilities remains closed at this time; our outdoor training can take place at CapU, however our indoor classroom sessions will take place at an interim location. More info:

Before you can take our class, you need to do a Knowledge Test and get a motorcycle learner's license. ICBC has now reintroduced Testing Services, and at this time Knowledge Testing is available by appointment only. Currently ICBC is booking a month or more for knowledge testing. Call ICBC's Licensing Line (​1-800-950-1498) to book an appointment for a knowledge test.

More info:

ICBC has reopened road testing, and ProRIDE graduates may now book in for a Motorcycle Road Test as well as a Pre-Test Simulator Session.

At the moment we are limiting bookings to no further than 1 month in advance. Each week a new group of appointments will cycle into the calendar. Sorry, we are unable to save anyone a spot for road testing. Students are encouraged to book in online:

Unfortunately we are unable to keep a wait list. If you are trying to get in and the calendar appears full, we encourage you to check back frequently as a new group of appointments will cycle into the calendar each week!

In order to ensure the safety of our students and instructors, ProRIDE is committed to following all guidelines provided by the Provincial Health Officer and WorkSafeBC.

  • Proof of vaccination will be checked upon entry;
  • A minimum 2 meter distance will be maintained;
  • Use of 3-layer face masks & hand sanitizer will be recommended and required, and will be available as needed;
