ICBC unveils app for learning drivers

Includes practice test, guide, video tips

For beginning drivers who love their mobile devices, it’s the perfect thing.

A new free app from ICBC now lets learners practice the driving knowledge test on their iPhones and other Apple mobile devices.

The app also includes the complete Learn to Drive Smart guide, all driver licensing locations and selected videos to help new drivers prepare for their test and be safe on the roads.

“We believe this app will make it easier to practice, which we hope calms nerves and helps new drivers focus on learning to make smart driving decisions,” said Fred Hess, ICBC vice-president of driver licensing.

The app’s practice test randomly generates 25 questions, replicating the real knowledge test, including correct procedures on right turns, driving in school zones and how to handle a vehicle that skids out of control.

Videos provide help developing road safety skills and tips to pass the road test.

Users who get 100 per cent on their practice test unlock “bonus videos,” according to ICBC.
