There are two class 4 designations in British Columbia, allowing drivers to operate passenger vehicles under restricted or unrestricted licence parameters. Both licences are focused on the safe transportation of people and require the same elevated level of skill and competency.  How many passengers you plan to transport will determine whether a restricted or unrestricted class 4 licence is the right choice for you.

Working for ride-hailing companies, such as Lyft and Uber, driving taxis and ambulances require a class 4 restricted licence.

Transporting others requires dedication and a high level of responsibility, commitment, and safety, so ICBC has specific licensing requirements for those drivers. Valley Driving School can help prepare drivers to meet and exceed these expectations, with our class 4 restricted, one-on-one training program. 

Restricted class 4 drivers may transport up to 10 passengers (including the driver) in vehicles such as: taxis and limousines, ambulances, or shuttle vehicles. With ride hailing services now available in BC, a class 4 restricted licence will be needed to become a driver for companies such as Lyft.  

Should you need to transport more passengers, a class 4 unrestricted licence may be used to drive vehicles with a total passenger capacity of 25 (including the driver), such as school buses, special activity buses, and vehicles used to transport people with disabilities such as HandyDART. The unrestricted designation will allow you to drive any vehicle that is included within the restricted designation as well.

Valley Driving School’s class 4 Restricted Program includes one-on-one on-road time and pre-trip inspection training in your passenger vehicle or ours. We will cover all the required skills needed to successfully complete the ICBC restricted class 4 road test.  Class 4 training is considered part-time training and start dates are provided on a continuous & rotating intake, based on student & instructor availability.

"I want to thank my instructor and the friendly knowledgeable staff that made my dream to become a commercial driver come true.

I'm currently doing long-haul runs through North America and I enjoy my job.

I've accepted the challenge to begin my journey as a truck driver and there are tough times; but I remember my Instructor said it's all about your attitude. So I stayed positive and bulldoze every obstacle in my way.

Yahoo!! Thanks again :)"
