The Full Driving Program integrates the defensive driving skills the student learns in the classroom with private, on-road driving lessons. The combination of classroom theory, use of the driving simulator, and on-road lessons work together to ensure the student becomes a safe and pro-active driver in all types of road conditions. Ideally we would like to spread the lessons out so that ample practice time can be accomplished at home in between the lessons.
If ICBC requirements are met, the student may receive 2 credits towards high school graduation, and could save 6 months in the “N” stage of the Graduated Licensing Program. Requirements: Students must complete and pass all components of the course in the learner’s stage and within 12 months of beginning the program to qualify.
