About Us

North Shore Driving School is owned and operated by Josie Briton who takes an active role in the operations and management of the company.

Established in 1961, North Shore Driving School remains synonymous with leadership in the driver training industry AND has been one of the premier driving schools in Vancouver, offering comprehensive training programs taught by government-certified instructors.

North Shore Driving School is bonded with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) and is a proud member of the Driving School Association of the Americas (DSAA).

Both organizations and individuals trust our courses for teaching the best driving practices. Many families are sending second and third generations through our ICBC approved programs.

 Class 5/7 and Class 1 Driving Instructor Training

 Air Brake Refresher Courses

 Group Defensive Driving Courses

 Employee Evaluations


We also do specialized training for people with special needs or conditions such as paraplegics, amputees, and individuals who have suffered from strokes or injury.
