The GDL is a system of helping new drivers learn the skills and knowledge that will help them become safe and confident drivers. The program requires participants to pass 3 tests – a written knowledge test and two road tests.
The knowledge test is required to get your learners licence which allows you to start getting in supervised road driving practice.
You’ll book your knowledge test appointment online and sit the test at an ICBC driver licensing office.
After completing this stage, you can move on to N – novice driver which requires you to pass the Class 7 road test after at least 1 year of qualified driving supervision.
Finally, move up to your full licence after holding your Novice status with no penalties for a minimum of 24 months. You can reduce this time period to 18 months if you take an ICBC-approved driver training course while you were in your L stage.
