Important Notice of Transport Canada Changes

Internet Course and Exam

April 15, 2011 - the online exam process has changed to a more comprehensive format.

A minimum of 3 hours of study time is required to study the 5 chapter online course, passing chapter quizzes sequentially, and finally taking a 50 question exam. Students do not have to study all in one sitting, but rather can save their progress and return when their schedule permits. Students can take the online course at their own pace, spreading out the required study time if so desired. The online course no longer requires a Supervisor for the exam, and it can be done from the comfort of the student's own home or anywhere with an Internet connection. It is now also an open book exam.

Effective April 15, 2011, the new online course format is in effect. Any student taking the online course after this time, must use the new format, even if the student registered and paid prior to April 15th, or even if an unsuccessful exam attempt was made before April 15th.

Challenge Exam Only

Students may still challenge the exam, with no required study. This is only offered in person at BOATERexam.com Exam Centres and tradeshows across Canada. This exam has also increased to 50 questions.
