Isle Drive Lessons & Rates

Only the driving instructor and one student will be allowed inside the car for the duration of each lesson. Parents or guardians wanting to observe the lesson in the car can contact the office to discuss this request.

We offer several different lesson packages, which can be custom-designed to suit the individual needs of each student. Our prime directive is to prepare the student for the real-world environment of safe defensive driving. A one-time $12.00 registration fee will be applied to all new student sign-ups.

Dash cams are scheduled to be in operation in our cars by mid-April 2024. This means when scheduling a lesson with our school you agree to be recorded. The information will be held for 24 hours. This is for the protection of both staff and students.

*USE OF CAR FOR ROAD TEST ENTIRELY DEPENDS ON AVAILABILITY ON TEST DATE CHOSEN BY CLIENTS AND UPON APPROVAL BY INSTRUCTOR

The instructor will be available at ICBC throughout the road test. Remember to tell the Examiner before the test, that you wish your Isle Drive instructor to be part of the debrief following the assessment.

Our vehicles are only available for Road Tests with students at our instructors’ discretion.

Students must have a valid BC driver’s license or a foreign driver’s license recognized and valid in British Columbia before taking driving lessons with us. Students must carry their Driver’s License at all times during training.

As required by ICBC, students must show their Driver’s License before the lesson. We are not able to conduct a lesson for a student who does not have their driver’s License with them at the start time of the lesson.

We offer individual in-car training only.

All lessons are with a single student in the car with one Instructor.

Pick-up and Drop-off are offered for in-car lessons depending on your location. Please call or email to enquire if we service your area. We do however, strongly encourage meeting in the Duncan area to maximize your practical experience and spend time in a higher traffic environment.

Lessons start at the time scheduled and end after a short debrief and Q&A when we reach the drop-off point designated before the lesson.

If any student is deemed by the Instructor to be impaired in any manner the lesson will be ceased, and the student will be charged the entire fee for the lesson. For obvious reasons, we will not allow anyone we consider impaired to operate our vehicles.

If you wish to cancel a scheduled driving lesson, we suggest you: log into the student portal with your username and password, or text us at 250-252-4753 or email info@isledrive.ca. A full 24-hour notice must be given to cancel or change a lesson, or students will be charged $90 for a late cancellation or change.

The student will be called or texted after a 5-minute delay at the pickup point. If the student has not arrived 15 minutes after the lesson was scheduled to begin, the instructor may consider the lesson forfeited unless other arrangements have been made. In this case, a cancellation fee of $90.00 will be charged.
