What are the restrictions on a Learner driver in BC?

Posted in New Drivers, Questions and Answers

The Learner driver is someone who has passed the written exam, but has not yet passed the road test for a Novice Class 7 license.

From ICBC, these are the restrictions

For passenger vehicles, the learner stage takes at least 12 months. During this time, you must:

  • drive with a qualified supervisor, in the front seat, 25 or older, who has a valid driver’s licence
  • carry no more than two passengers, including your supervisor
  • drive only between 5 a.m. and midnight
  • display your red “L” sign
  • not use a cellphone or any other hands-free/hand-held device
  • avoid alcohol while driving (no alcohol in body)
