Graduated Licensing Program
This is PG Driving For Life Academy Ltd.’s most comprehensive package, designed for new drivers who wish to receive as many skills as possible in preparation for life long driving. This package includes extra hours for students who may not receive as many practice hours with their Co-Drivers or students who simply need more lessons to graduate to their Class 7N phase. Read below for full details.
The Graduated License Program (GLP) is accredited by ICBC and allows participating students to take the test to graduate to their Class 5 license 6-months earlier than non-GLP students, providing that they drive prohibition and accident free during their Class 7N phase. The GLP also provides two grade 11 credits to participating students.
Please remember to leave ample time for lessons and a Road Test. In the spring and summer months, we regularly book a minimum of one month in advance.
You will need to specify a classroom session when registering. Lessons are 1 hour in length unless otherwise specified. Road Tests (RT) lessons are two hours in length – a one hour warm up and use of car for test. If a student is not successful on their first ICBC Road Test attempt, all GLP Packages include one complimentary Warm-Up and the use of a PG Driving For Life car for a second test, OR a single one-hour refresher prior to a second test, schedule permitting. Prices are subject to change without notice. We will book the ICBC road test for you, but ICBC fees are the responsibility of the student and are not included in the cost of the package. Please read this ICBC Student Consent and Release Form which the student will be required to sign.

PG Driving For Life Academy Ltd. is committed to teaching students the skills necessary to drive safely, responsibly, and defensively in a comfortable and respectful environment.
Chris was so patient and understanding of my sons special needs, he helped my son understand why he had to follow each rule and how to think like a safe driver.
Helped him through this anxiety and dealt with his autism in relation to driving. I would highly recommend them to anyone but especially to those who’s kids are a little different.
I took the 12 month Platinum Program with Driving For Life and I couldn’t be any happier with the instructors I had or the things I learned in the time I was getting lessons with them. Chris is fun and easy going and was totally accommodating when I was scared (I was always a nervous driver). Because of him, I have confidence when I drive and I know what I’m doing. I took and passed the GLP program through D4L, meaning I got 6 months off of my N. Bev was a blast and Christina was a lot of fun too, even though I only had them once or twice. I would recommend Driving for Life to anyone and I will be going back for lessons before I take my class 5! Thank you guys for all of the help you gave me and so many others!
To anyone thinking of getting driving lessons, I would highly recommend PG Driving for Life. Chris and Christina gave all of our kids excellent driving lessons and the skills to keep them safe and be defensive, courteous drivers (especially in snowy conditions). They all passed to their “novice” license on the first try and are confident, safe drivers with good driving records. I have also learned a few new driving skills through what my children have learned at Driving for Life. The lessons and exam were all scheduled around the kid’s needs which made it super convenient. Thanks Chris and Christina and Regina!
My driving lessons with PG Driving for Life were such a wonderful experience. They offered me a free consultation on the phone to find out what I really needed, and they planned my lessons accordingly. The quantity and content of the lessons exactly matched my needs. The instructor was very helpful and gave extra explanation whenever necessary. I highly recommend PG Driving for Life to everybody.
