The Best Ways To Prepare For Your ICBC Written Driver’s Test

The ICBC drivers test is the best way to know if a car owner can drive on the road for the safety and welfare of other drivers. It may seem like a complex process, but it will be a gentle road to be in as you get hold of your driver’s license with the proper preparations and techniques.

Like any test, the ICBC drivers test is a pact with a series of technical questions about the road and how to be a driver with the rules presented on the streets. Like many practices, these tests require resilience, dedication, and time to be a master.

Who says the ICBC drivers test shouldn’t be fun? So let’s give you a couple of tips to enjoy the process and ace that exam so you can ride around your fancy new car.

 

What type of test is the ICBC drivers test?

ICBC Drivers TestThe test is a multiple-choice type of question with 50 of them. You have to score at least 40 (80%) to pass the succeeding steps of acquiring your driver’s license. This is the case for British Canada, and the steps of getting through it are as standard as it gets.

The ICBC drivers test will also cover many classifications of technical knowledge like safety rules, street signs, and procedures that will equip you to drive safely and efficiently.

 

What do I need to study to prepare for the ICBC drivers test?

There is only one test prep material you need to take hold of, and that would be the Learn to Drive Smart Manual. This can be downloaded online as a PDF, bought from the official drivers testing offices, or read through the official app.

Regardless of how you will go about your material, the manual will sport nine essential chapters in answering the fifty-item exam. Moreover, the manual will cover all of them from the very principles of driving, equipment, law enforcement, and signs. So it’s best to review all chapters without skipping a beat.

 

Will the test be in full English?

If you choose to, English can be one of the languages that the test will provide. But if you have difficulties comprehending English, there are ten other languages to choose from that will make it easier for you to answer the exam.

Moreover, the exam will also not take prejudice of asking questions from the staff in the center. So make sure to request a reasonable amount of questions to be sure.

 

How long should I take the ICBC drivers test, and how do I make an appointment?

The ICBC drivers test requires no appointments to be set. When you elect to take the ICBC knowledge test, all you need to do is go to many facilities that will accommodate such an exam for at least two hours before closing. That way, they can accommodate you and have the exam papers ready for you to take.

The ICBC drivers test should be finished within 30-45 minutes. A fast-paced exam like this will need dedicated hours of prep time and concentration to complete all items.

With the technical areas discussed, let’s go over the best ways to pass and enjoy reviewing the ICBC drivers test.

 

  1. Ready all ICBC drivers test materials

As mentioned, you only really need the Learn to Drive Smart Manual to answer the questions. However, there are nine chapters, so having an outlined summation of each chapter in a secondary notebook is crucial to reviewing.

Having a pen or a tablet is also beneficial for jotting down notes. So, in short, prepare all necessary materials and tools to ready your review session.

 

  1. Gather Practice Exams

Either from websites online or an official review center, grab yourself a lot of ICBC driver’s test practice exams so you can be familiar with the actual exams once you take a seat and answer one. But, again, there should be numerous sources online that will provide a couple.

Also, have integrity in answering them. They may not have a significant weight on your actual results, but answering them as if you’re answering the actual exam itself should give you the mindset of being careful with answering. Practicing is the best way of mastery at any level. So make sure to get a hold of a few practice exams online to respond well.

 

  1. Answer with a time limit

You should mimic what it would feel like if you’re in the actual testing center at home. Have a timer run at 30-45 minutes and answer the questions as fast as you can. The more you take these types of exams, the better you’re going to be.

The ICBC drivers test is fast-paced. You’ll only be having an average of 36 seconds to answer each question. Reading the question should take about 10-15 seconds, and shading or circling the letter should take back a second or two. Therefore, the exam should be more than reasonable for anyone to take time-wise. Just practice more so you can have an allowance of minutes left before the time is up.

 

  1. Schedule a daily routine

It’s all easier said than done at the end of the day. But when it comes down to practicing for the ICBC drivers test, it’s hard to maintain discipline in actually reviewing. Having a dedicated schedule will help you have the habit of sitting down and studying at a consistent rate.

Don’t overstress reviewing too much. Overdoing it may cause you to have mental blockages during the exam. It’s best to stick to a routine so you’ll have good conditioning right on the exam schedule.

 

What to do in the actual exam

Don’t review the day before and on the day of the exam. It’s pointless to study now that you have already, and it’s nearing the exam time already.

  • Bring pencils or the prescribed testing materials.
  • Bring a valid ID.
  • Bring some snacks with you if it’s allowed.
  • When presented with a tricky question and taking time to answer it, make a calculated guess and proceed with the next one.
  • NEVER have any questions unanswered. It’s best to make a calculated guess than to leave it blank that omits a mistake 100% of the time.

 

Final thoughts

The ICBC driver’s test is only the first step to acquiring your driver’s license. Regardless, it’s essential to pass it so you can be halfway there already. With the right mindset, conditions, and practice time, you are already halfway there, to begin with. So don’t give up and ace that ICBC driver’s test, so you’ll directly proceed with the road exam
