Bad weather arrangement


Driving test:

Rainy Days or Slippery Roads : For driving tests of all vehicle classes, under these circumstances, the examiner has the right not to test a candidate in view of safety concerns.

Bad Weather : If either typhoon signal no. 8 or above is hoisted or black rainstorm warning signal is issued, driving tests of all vehicle classes (including written test and road test) will be rescheduled. If such signals are still hoisted at 7:00 a.m., all driving tests scheduled before 1:00p.m. will be cancelled. If such signals are still hoisted at 11:30a.m., all driving test in the afternoon session will also be cancelled. Candidates who are scheduled to take driving test do not have to report to the test center in person.

If the black rainstorm warning signal is issued during service hours (i.e. 8:30a.m. - 4:30p.m.), all driving tests will be suspended. If the black rainstorm warning signal is lowered during service hours, the driving test service will resume, depending on the on-road traffic conditions (not applicable to road test of motorcycles).

  • In case of inclement weather, besides posting notices at the Road Safety Centres, we will also upload the relevant information to the Centre’s hotline for the convenient reference of the students. In the event of class suspension, the respective Instructors will contact the students within one week to follow up on the class arrangement.
