This site offers a few practice written tests :
Hey Dave Wanted to send you a quick thank you! The package you provided really provided me the opportunity to nail both the pre-trip and road test for my class 4. I would have been unprepared and not have done as well as I did! Ended up with one demerit for pre-trip (Brake light check) and no demerits for my road test! AWESOME! Thank you Jesse
I received an email from a single mom who was desperate because she had to take the BC Class 4 Inspection Test & Road Test in a few days. She had no way of getting the payment to me other than mailing a cheque so I sent her a complimentary copy. A few days later I received this email from her:
Hi David, I wanted to just drop you a line and thank you again for the gift of your report. I had my pretrip/roadtrip yesterday and was successful. I would never have passed that test without your help. My job is now secured, and things will only look up now for both myself, and my children. Bless your heart for the kindness. T.

If you are taking your BC Class 4 unrestricted for the purposes of bus driving – with no air brakes – then you will find this very confusing.
Better stick to our report which simplifies and clarifies what you need to know.

Every year children are injured or killed in school bus related incidents. Some are as a result of a collision between their bus and another vehicle while others are injured or killed as they fail to clear the area around the bus and are struck by oncoming traffic.
Parents can keep their children safe by raising their awareness of potential hazards while riding a school bus, while drivers can make a concerned effort at making school bus safety a priority by obeying the rules of the road.
Parents are advised to follow these tips to improve their children’s safety:
- Children should wear bright colored clothing, especially if they wait for the bus before sunrise or if they get home after dark. It’s also a good idea to place reflective tape or material on their outer garments and backpacks to increase their visibility.
- Remind your children to stay seated while on the bus.
- Teach your children to move away from the bus when exiting so the bus driver can see that your child has safely cleared the bus and is away from traffic. Remind your children to stay away from the bus’ wheels at all times.
- Teach your children to be aware of their surroundings and any vehicular traffic near them. Let your children know that they shouldn’t assume that vehicles will stop for them or that drivers even see them. If your child is required to cross the street, remind them to look both ways and traffic is stopped before crossing and to be aware of anything in their path that may cause them to stumble.
- Instruct your children to never venture back out into the roadway if they drop something while crossing the road. Suggest that they get help from an adult nearby.
Drivers are reminded that school bus traffic laws were created to keep children safe and sound while in transit. Ignoring laws associated with school buses is reckless and puts children at risk. Drivers are required to drive defensively and slow down to 30 km/h in school zones. Of note is that fines for speeding in a school zone increase. Slowing down allows you to see more of what is going on around you and enables you to react quicker in the event you need to stop suddenly. Children are easily distracted by a variety of things and may not necessarily be paying attention to what’s going on around them and may unknowingly venture out into oncoming traffic.
Section 149 of the Motor Vehicle Act states that it is illegal to overtake or pass a school bus that is stopped with its emergency red lights flashing or its stop arm extended. Disobeying this law will bring a fine of $167. Vehicles following a school bus must stop and wait until the flashing lights are turned off and the stop arm is retracted. It’s important to be aware of the possibility that children may dart out from behind the bus so don’t assume it’s safe to proceed just because the lights have stopped flashing. Vehicles approaching a school bus head on with its emergency lights activated or stop arm extended are required to stop if there is no physical barrier separating the lanes of traffic.
There are good drivers and there are bad drivers; there are people who love to drive and those who do so only out of necessity. But there are also certain types of drivers you just don’t want to be near.
Are you one of these bad drivers?
