Theory Courses

Defensive Driving, Road Regulations, Vehicle Safety and Vehicle System Courses in North Vancouver

Our GLP certified instructors teach our driver education theory course in North Vancouver and Burnaby to give students the foundations of driving knowledge to be ready for the road. Our course goes beyond the required study to pass the learner’s knowledge test; our students are given a new text book and binder on the first day of classes.

Contact North Shore Driving School in North Vancouver, BC or Burnaby, BC for more information.

You can take theory on its own or as part of a driving program in Burnaby. If you are taking a Graduated Licensing Program in North Vancouver, you will be required to take at least one in-car driving lesson before you complete all of the theory classes to meet ICBC’s integration requirement. To learn more about these requirements, please see our DOC Requirements page.
