    Hello, can a friend use their cellphone or operate a GPS while the N driver is driving?

    Is there any restriction on when you have to upgrade a class 7 licence to a class 5?

    Hi is pulling onto the shoulder when 4or 5 cars are driving behind you on a 2 lane highway with no passing lanes.

    How about when there are many people living in a house that are not related. Is that possible for someone with an L to drive with more than 2 passengers if they are from the same household.

        I just passed the knowledge test can i drive alone without supervisor? Can i buy a car now ? How long should i wait to get my roadtest?

          Hi! Congrats. If you have your L you must have a supervisor when driving. Yes you can buy a car whenever you want, whether you have a license or not. You should drive at least 60 hours before your road test to get the necessary experience. Have fun

      No, it really has nothing to do with the house.

    Hello, my father is a cancer patient and I have my L, I understand the restriction is from 12am to 5am but is there any exception to where I can drive past midnight Age 17 Class 7L

      Hi. There are no exceptions that I have ever heard of, but you could confirm directly with ICBC..

    Nothing is being said about the placement of the N and or the L at the back of the vehicle. I saw one with the sign attached to the bottom of the vehicle barely visible from the rear quarters. My understanding is they MUST be plainly visible?

      Hi, thanks so much, I have updated this.

    If I have my N and A 25+ family member with a valid license I can have as many people as the vehicle holds safely. Is that the same if the 25+ family member is above the legal alcohol limit?

    if you have your L can you have as much family members as you want
