Class 5 tips?

Hey RS,

Has anyone taken the Class 5 test recently, if so, do you have any tips on it?

My brother is taking it in a couple weeks and just want him to have the best chance. I took mine like 10 years ago, so I don't remember much.

The only thing I got wrong is when I was highway merging and I still don't know what the right protocol is?

I took my test in Burnaby and while I was in the highway onramp merge lane I was docked points because I didn't "get up to speed" or "accelerate" in the merge lane. What is the law for this? At the time I didn't see a speed sign, so in the merge lane I didn't go past 50km/h as that was the municipal speed limit.

I still don't know what the right answer to this is? At what speed are you allowed to go in a highway merge lane coming from a 50km/h speed limit?

Thanks for your input!

Default highway speed limit is 80 km/h unless you see a posted speed limit that says otherwise.

It's in the book
"• The acceleration lane is divided from the rest of the roadway
by a solid white line. Use this lane to match your speed to the
speed of traffic on the freeway."

Exaggerated shoulder checks. Make sure the instructor guy sees that he turns his head around.

No rolling stops. Come to a full stop at the red light/ stop signs.

Don’t change lanes at intersections. Although apparently this isn’t illegal just don’t give them an excuse.

Eruhhh that’s about all I can remember from 20 years ago

when I took mine eons ago, the instructor told me to never slow down for a left turn in the small streets unless there is a stop sign, which you just stop before proceeding.

On average there are eight bribery attempts made each year. The amount involved in the attempted briberies ranges from $50 to more than $300.


imagine expecting someone to risk their job for $50

Do they still teach (or did they ever) defensive driving like pulling over to the shoulder or a pull-out to allow traffic to pass? I recall learning that, possibly from my parents, but I rarely see it put in practice. I drive a lot of back roads in the valley and the driver going below the limit at the head of a long line seems more concerned with controlling other drivers and preventing passing when the designated opportunities come.

ask the instructor before leaving ICBC "when merging onto the highway would you like me to speed to merge safely or drive the posted limit and merge when theres a safe opening"

i took my test, and drove posted limit, but found it hard to merge because everyone in the right lane was zipping it by me. by the time i was merged on the highway the instructor said "next time just speed up to merge safely" but i guess ymmv, so ask first.

mirror, mirror, shoulder check.

or just book the exam at 330 in burnaby / vancouver and on the highway everyones going snails pace and it's a safe bet.

I did the think out loud technique lol. School zone 30km, no one at cross walk, there's traffic on the highway I'm just going to merge now. Examiner is like you don't have to do that. I just want you to know I know haha then when he starts talking about Canucks and shit you passed.

Young drivers driving school. Or similar.
They know exactly what to train you on.
I think some of them might be ex instructors.

99% of the driver don't know how to speed up to merge to the highway. They just go 50. Sometimes they slow way down when the merge lane run out and fuck everyone up.

Use the ramp to get your shit to the highway speed (which is usually 70-80), that's exactly why they build a long ass ramp for. Then looks for gap to merge. Most people who are already on the hwy are pretty good at either slowing down or moving over to let you merge.

When the examiner ask you to pull over and park, make sure you check for fire hydrants and not park in front of it.

Just take a one hour refresher lesson with a driving instructor. They'll know the route as well. Like most drivers, your brother has likely developed a couple of bad habits during his N. It's better to have an instructor correct those before the examiner does.
