In order to obtain a Class 4 Driver’s Licence, you will need to have a valid, full Class 5 (non-GDL) license or higher in good standing.
Class 4 Knowledge Test
You can prepare for the knowledge test by reading the Commercial Driver’s Guide. Please note that you should also review the Driver’s Guide (the book you studied before you took your Class 7 Learner’s) as there are some general questions included on the Commercial knowledge tests as well. When you are thoroughly prepared, come into our office to take the computerized knowledge test. The cost is $17 and an appointment is not necessary. Please be sure to arrive to our office at least one hour before closing (i.e. arrive by 6 on weekdays and by 4 on Saturday). Please note that this test is available in English only and translation is not allowed.
Driving as a Class 4 Learner
Once you pass the Class 4 Knowledge Test, we will stamp your permit and you can use the permit (with your Driver’s Licence) to operate Class 4 vehicles as a learner (with a supervising driver). The permit is valid for one year. Before the end of that year, you will need to take the Class 4 Road Test. If more than one year passes, you will need to purchase a new permit and take the Class 4 Knowledge Test again.
Class 4 Road Test
To book your Class 4 Road Test, please visit our office or book online. The cost is $145. Please note that Road Test fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
After you pass the Class 4 road test, you are ready to re-class your licence. The fee for this service is $28.
Please note that you will have to provide a completed Medical Examination for Motor Vehicle Operators form which has been filled out by a physician. This will be required every five years to age 39, four years to age 40, 3 years to age 41, then every two years from age 42-62, and annually thereafter.
