FAQ

Why should you choose a driving school instead of a coach ?

Using a family member or a friend as a coach it's very stressful for both parts. You, as a student, are stressed about mistakes and crashes and the coach is stressed because he/she cannot fully control the car with the "drive-by-voice" system. By using a family member or a friend as a coach, you will be 100% dependant on his/her free time and schedule.

Mostly importantly, the family car is not double controlled and not fully insured for driving training.

Using a ICBC licensed instructor you will have benefit of:

  • learning from a professionally trained and bonded instructor;

  • forming safe and responsible driving skills;

  • learning how to drive in a calm, friendly and safe atmosphere;

  • learning in your free time and on your own schedule;

  • eliminating and reducing stress because the car is fully double controlled;

  • using a driving school car that is fully insured for driver training.

If you are a high school student and successfully finish a Graduation License Program, you will receive 2 points credit for your high school graduation. In the meantime you can reduce your novice (N) license stage by 6 month if you take this course (GLP) while you are still in the learner's (L) stage, provided that you are violation free and you have no at-fault crashes.
