Become a Qualified Driving Instructor in BC

In order to qualify as a licensed driving instructor in British Columbia, the ICBC requires you to complete an instructor-training course. After successfully completing this course, send your documentation to ICBC with your licensing fee and you will receive your instructor's licence by mail. When you obtain your Driver Training Instructor's Licence, you can teach driver training in North Vancouver, Burnaby or anywhere else in British Columbia!


Before you contact ICBC for pre-approval, you are advised to do a mandatory entrance quiz and entrance assessment drive, which are required by ICBC as of March 1, 2015. You must attend beginner theory course for Graduated Licensing Program (GLP) (Documentation letter by any qualified driving school in BC) or attend the Graduated Licensing Theory (GLT) course at the Justice Institute of British Columbia. This can be done up to 9 months in advance before the course commencement. Contact ICBC here to be pre-approved or toll free (within BC): 1-866-339-0363. Fill out our Online Application Form.
