Tests are not obligatory, but we do encourage all members to do them. You’ll learn a lot, but equally importantly, you’ll get to know the other members your age and you’ll have lots of fun!
You have to be considered ready by our D.C. in order to take a test. There is also a minimum age for each test. You can take the E test in the calendar year you turn 6, the D test in the calendar year you turn 8, the D+ in the year you turn 10, the C test in the year you turn 12, then the Riding and Road Safety is mandatory before you take C+. You may take the C+ test the year you turn 14, and then the B test the year you turn 16, followed by B+ Test from age 18, which qualifies you to instruct. After that you may consider taking the H and A tests.
