ICBC Approved Driver Education Course (GLP)

Course Description

This course consists of 18 hours of theory, 12 hours of in-car instruction and 2 hours of observation.

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.

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 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.
