School zones are 30km/h from 8AM to 5PM on regular school days. However, there is still summer school and if exams as taking place, I would go with the posted 30km/h.

You need to drive the 30 in the school zone unless the sign is covered. I've seen the summer school signs covering the regular school signs though. Go 30.

Before you begin your road test you are permitted to ask your tester questions. As a driver I don't believe you are expected to know which schools are closed during the sumer and which are open for summer school. It would be appropriate to ask the tester how he wants you to deal with the situation. My experiance has also been that schools with the tabbed 30k restrictions are usually NOT high schools...and they are likely not doing summer make-up classes in those low grades.

147 (1) A person driving a vehicle on a regular school day and on a highway where signs are displayed stating a speed limit of 30 km/h, or on which the numerals "30" are prominently shown, must drive at a rate of speed not exceeding 30 km/h while approaching or passing the school building and school grounds to which the signs relate, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., or subject to subsection (1.1), between any extended times that are stated on the signs.

Just asked my driving instructor on this as my test is the 23rd. You must still obey school zone signs, you can stop travelling 30 when it is July 1st.

30 if it says 30 below.

There are some school zone signs that don't necessarily mean to slow down, but just to make drivers aware of the hazard. When I was taking some lessons for my class 5 around point grey area I found this out.

Taking a few real lessons from a real driving instructor won't hurt you since they may be able to make you more aware of what the real exam will be like and what kind of tricks to watch out for.

I have a related question... I think it's been touched on in this forum before, but I can't find the post/thread.

I know in some jurisdictions, construction zones only apply when workers are present. Is there anything similar in BC? For example, the whole stretch of Lougheed Highway from the Pitt River Bridge to Golden Ears Way in Pitt Meadows is currently a construction zone with a 60km/h speed limit... which seems a little silly on the weekend when there's nobody working, no machinery on the roadside, and the construction itself is pretty much completed other than the cones left behind...

I'm glad the court offered an opinion as to what a "school day" is. To go to the OP's question...just ask your examiner if they deem it to be a school day for the purpose of the roadtest. They are the ones marking you and in this specific instance, they will decide if you are correctly obeying the signs. It is a reasonable question, specially near the end of the school year when every school handles things differently. I don't believe that you are supposed to know if this is a day that the school board requires teachers to be available for work.

I'd already had my driver's license for 10 years before the GLP came in, so... no.

I was thinking the same thing. Buildings, playgrounds, whatever, really aren't relevant: sign says 30, you do 30. Pretty simple.

Also pretty simple: if there's ANYTHING about the test or conditions you're unsure of, JUST ASK!

(BTW, regarding the bit about whether there's summer school... I've never seen a school (at least in BC) that did OFFICIAL summer sessions that DIDN'T have a little "SUMMER SCHOOL" tag added to the bottom of the school zone signs. Just sayin'...

oooh, didnt realize, but yeah one tip i was given was, school zone ends when you see houses facing houses, if you understand what i mean
and the biggest tip is to just calm the fuck down and relax. when you get all nervous you make even more mistakes, just remember your shoulder checks
good luck !

As a driving/riding instructor of class 5,6,7,8 and GLP...I agree...but this may just be a prejudiced view on my part.

"Just asked my driving instructor on this as my test is the 23rd. You *must* still obey school zone signs, you can stop travelling 30 when it is *July 1st*."


Geez....how long a test are you having to do? They are supposed to take about 45 mins max!!!!!!

when i took my road test, i asked my tester this too, as school was over.
they just answered with "stick with your gut instinct, go the speed you think you would usually be going at"
i assumed 30 and that's what i went with. better safe than sorry; good luck!

My evaluator and I talked about how our parents beat us as kids.

Not even kidding.

I broke the ice by having QMFM on and talked about how I'm all about the classics.
