Scheduling the Written Exam

You have the option of taking the Written Exam online and virtually proctored or physically at a test centre. Once your Written Exam application is approved, our Program Coordinator will contact you and discuss the options and requirements of each. Once you've selected online or test centre, the Program Coordinator will assist in ensuring appropriated arrangements and scheduling.

Virtually Proctored Exam

With a virtually proctored examination you will need a personal computer with a strong internet connection and a working web camera. The location can be anywhere, with some privacy. The Program Coordinator will assist in setting up a Yardstick Measure account and take payment at that time. You can then schedule your exam at a convenient available time. Once the exam is scheduled, you would log into your account a few minutes before your scheduled exam, select the exam, and begin the process of being connected with the proctor. The proctor will require proof of identity with a Class 3 Driver’s License. The examination should take about one hour.

Physical Test Centre

In the option of a test centre examination, the centre will provide both a computer and a proctor. The locations of the test centres in BC are listed here and also included in the Candidate Handbook in Appendix C, page 52. The Program Coordinator will assist in scheduling a test centre examination and take payment at that time.
