Can I take a single lesson?


Why not? Whether you want to try us out or want to work on a specific skill or simply want to know if you’re ready for your road test, we can help.




Do you offer free pick up and drop off?


Yes, we do!




Can I rent your vehicle for the road test?


We only offer our vehicles to students that have enrolled in at least one of our lessons. If we have never had the opportunity to assess the way that you drive, then we do not feel comfortable letting you use our vehicle. We believe that if an individual is not well-prepared for the road test and arrives for a road test in our vehicle, it reflects poorly on us. Thus, we wish to mitigate that.




Can you book my road test for me?


We don’t book road tests for our students directly. To book a road test, you must call ICBC.
