    If I were to tow a trailer with my L licence, where would I place the L sign? On the car? On the trailer? Or both?
    Thank you.

      Hello! The sign needs to be visible to the cars/drivers who are traveling behind you. So put it wherever it is that the people behind you can see it. 😉

    Hello, I have a question. I have just got my L License and My husband who has got the Class5 License is my supervisor. So we want to rent a car to go shopping. My husband could rent one car by using his license but if I want to drive (he would seat by me without more people in the car), is it allowed for me to become the additional driver when renting? Thanks a lot!

      I have no idea, you’d have to talk to the rental car company.

    Hi, my wife received a ticket months a go for not turning into the inner most lane on a left turn, after receiving her N in October. Now she has just gotten a letter in the mail today saying she is on probation. Is there any way to fight this or appeal it? If she gets any violations will she be prohibited from driving?

      Hi Oliver..I have had a lot of experience in this area. I’m sorry to say there is no way to fight it and please just get her to do the time and DONT DRIVE! I got a speeding ticket 1month before my N 24 months was done…and 30 days later also got the letter for 3months prohibited driving. I did my time and then had to pay $250 no way around that and $31 for card again.

    Hello, I have my L right now and from what I understood, it is legal to tow a trailer with the N. Does this also apply to the L? Can I tow a trailer (I know, no more than 4,600kg) with my Learners licence?

    I just got my Learners and I was wondering if its really a huge deal if my supervisor is not 25? Will it be a big penalty?

    1. BCDrivingBlog February 18, 2017 at 6:33 pm

      You might get fines and points and that might lead to a prohibition of your license.
