ICBC's Instructor Challenge Program
Driver training instructor applicants are required to take an instructor training course at an ICBC-authorized training facility.
You may be able to by-pass this requirement through ICBC’s Instructor Challenge Program.
Who can apply for the challenge program?
This program is intended for instructor licence applicants wanting to challenge the required requisite instructor training.
To participate in the challenge, you must meet one of the following:

- are reinstating a B.C. instructor's licence that has been expired for over 2 years
- have provided extensive and recent driver training for certification facilities or companies in the class of instructor licence being applied for, or
- have an acceptable combination of related instructional training and experience.
