Questions and Answers

Where do you teach driving?

We teach in the Duncan area and offer pick up and drop off in various locations in the Cowichan Valley. Please email or text to confirm we service your area. We do strongly suggest meeting in Duncan to maximize your in town driving time and to spend time in the area in which your road test will be conducted.

If I'm under age , can I apply for a license?

If you are under 19 years old, a parent or guardian must sign the application.

Do I get a full Driver's License right away?

According to the ICBC website, (https://www.welcomebc.ca/Start-Your-Life-in-B-C/Daily-Life/Driving-in-B-C#anchor2)

Under B.C.’s Graduated Licensing Program, new drivers pass through two stages before they get a full license.

Learner stage

When you pass the knowledge and vision tests, you will get a learner’s license.

Learners License BC Decal– This license allows you to practice driving before you take the road test.

– You may drive only with a fully-licensed driver 25 or more years old beside you.

– Several other restrictions limit your driving rights.

Novice stage

When you pass the road test at the end of the Learner stage, you get a novice license and can drive on your own.

Novice License BC Decal– For the first 24 months, you may have only one passenger unless:

– there is a licensed driver 25 years or older beside you or

– your passengers are close family members

– Several other restrictions limit your driving rights.

Full License

Given to you once you have passed through the previous two stages and passed your road test.

 – After 24 months with a novice license,

you can take a second road test and get a full-privilege license.


 If you have had a driver’s license for at least two years, you may not need to go through the Graduated Licensing Program. When you apply for your B.C. license, bring original documents to prove how long you have been driving.

How old do I have to be to get a Driver's Lesson?

To apply for a B.C. driver’s licence, you must be 16 years old or older. If you are under 19 years old, a parent or guardian (someone who is responsible for you) must sign the application.
