Thank you for expressing an interest in the driving programs offered by Comox Valley Driving School. We have been in the Comox Valley for over 20 years, providing top notch defensive driving habits to many of the new driver’s of our community.
We specialize in offering the student the most up to date information on driving laws and regulations as well as vehicle handling maneuvers.
Our instructors are ICBC certified to conduct the GLP training program.
Students must possess a valid Class 5 Learner’s permit or Class 7 Learner’s Permit prior to take any in car lessons. Study the ‘Learn to Drive Smart‘ manual which is available online at all Driver Services Centres.
Following is a list of the various programs we offer.
ICBC Approved Driver Education Course (GLP)
It consists of 20 hours of theory and 12 hours in-car.
This program cuts the waiting time on the Novice License down from 2 years to 1 1/2 years (18 months).
The driver must successfully complete a GLP-approved course in the learner stage, demonstrate safe driving attitudes and behaviours and have no violations (tickets) or at-fault crashes during the first 18 months of the novice stage.
The student also gets 2 credits towards high school.
There are six classroom sessions of 3 hours each, plus a 4 hour highway drive of which 2 hours are driving and 2 hours observation.
Other than the highway drive, all in car lessons are either one hour or two hour sessions.

In car lessons are conducted one-on-one with the instructor, except for the highway drive in the GLP program. There may also be the rare occasion where two students may be in the car for pickup and drop off purposes.
Lessons may be rescheduled or canceled by 6:00pm of the evening prior to the lesson. Students will be assessed a $20.00 administrative fee for any missed in-car lessons. This fee MUST be paid to the instructor at the next lesson. There are no exceptions. Please remember, we all like to get paid for our time and the instructors are no exception.
