The Class 4 knowledge test questions are based on information from the Driving Commercial Vehicles Guide. The test consists of 35 questions and you'll need to score a minimum of 28 correct responses to pass. You can take the test at any driver licensing office.*
To prepare, review the guide and take the practice test. Keep in mind that if you don’t pass, the waiting period to retake a Class 4 Knowledge Test is 7 days.

ICBC recommends that drivers study for the pre-trip inspection. Keep in mind that if you don't pass, the waiting period to retake the pre-trip inspection and road test is 14 days.
