ICBC Approved Driver Education Course (GLP)

We have recently completed a comprehensive course review with ICBC and our course materials are the most up-to-date in the province!

Course Description

This course consists of 18 hours of theory, 13.5 hours of in-car lessons, 2 hours of road trip observation, and one 30-minute interview with copilot.

Other than the highway drive, all in car lessons are either 1 hour or 2 hour sessions. Highway drives are done with another client in the car. During lesson 5 the Copilot / Parent will join the in-car lesson to help with practice at home and to answer any questions.

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 receives two Grade 11 credits.


GLP classroom sessions are broken down into three sessions. Students must attend one of each module.

Modules are held at the St. John Ambulance Centre at #84 – 1742 Cliffe Avenue in Courtenay.
