road test class 5 with snow!

hey guys

i called icbc and they said its basically up to the instructor

on the website it just says "safe tires" but doesn't specify if winter tires are needed

i have all seasons, wondering if i should reschedule my road test in 2 days

does anyone know if they will let me do it in all seasons? or how many points they may deduct (if any) ?

much appreciated !!

if you have the option to reschedule it for 2 days later, that is a no-brainer.

Were you like 4 years old when you joined RS?

I can't see an instructor expecting someone to take a road test in these conditions.

Main roads are completely fine right now, crews took care of everything. I would only worry about the small streets. I remember reading on a long time ago that it was super easy to pass the test because driving slow = safe

No need to change lol. Just show up to the test with a ferrari, wearing Canada Goose Jacket and a stack of $100 on the passenger seat. You will pass for sure!

While I agree that was a reasonable choice, in Ontario this would be no reason not to do your road test. I did my equivalent of L to N in a major snowstorm. I do recall having to ask the examiner if he would be particularly ruthless with lane discipline, since neither of us had any idea where the lanes might actually be.

Fun times.

Did mine in 07 and it had snowed the night previous, my class 5 test was in Burnaby and they gave me the option to reschedule, but I chose to do it and it was great because I kept it under the limit the whole time didn't have to worry about speeding in school zones or driving too fast on the offramp

My road test for my Class 5 was in the early 2000s, and it was the first day the office was open after a snow storm. There was hardly any traffic on the roads. Most of the time I was doing 30 k because of road conditions.
