Enhanced road assessment (ERA) program announcement
30 November 2017
The B.C. government has announced that beginning in March 2018, ICBC will deliver a new enhanced road assessment (ERA) to drivers that RoadSafetyBC determines require a functional road assessment to confirm their medical fitness to drive safely.
This assessment includes drivers with medical conditions currently attending an ICBC re-examination and drivers currently referred for a DriveABLE cognitive assessment.
Current re-exams — even with the addition of ERA — account for a small proportion of road tests conducted; however, ICBC will monitor this additional demand to ensure there isn’t an impact on road test wait times.
Refer to the B.C. Government announcement for further details.
