Getting started​​​

There are some important s​teps you need to take to become a driving school. Before you apply for a driver training school licence, consider:

  • Where your school will be located,

  • What type of training your school will offer,

  • What the local bylaws are for operating a business, and

  • Whether you will need a business licence.

Getting your driver training school licence

All B.C. driving schools must hold an ICBC-issued driver training school licence. Driving schools must also have a B.C. licensed driving instructor with the appropriate designations. 

​Before you apply, read the regulations​ for operating ​​a driving school in British Columbia.
