Student's signature on school copy of DOC not required
16 April 2014
After review of a concern from a number of driver training stakeholders who teach an ICBC-approved course, we have removed the requirement to include the student's signature on the white (school copy) of the Declaration of Completion (DOC) form.
We acknowledge that it is impractical for schools (with multiple training locations) to send partially completed forms back and forth between training locations and the location where student records are being maintained — for the purpose of obtaining student signatures.
Effective immediately, schools can choose (if they wish) to use the following procedure for completing DOCs:
- Complete Section 1 (Student Information) and Section 2 (Driver Training School Declaration) — and retain the white copy of the completed DOC in the student's file.
- Send both the green (ICBC copy) and the blue (student copy) intact to the instructor.
- After the student completes their training — the instructor gets the student to sign and date the form in Section 3 (Student Declaration).
- The student can then present the completed signed green copy to an ICBC driver licensing office — and the blue copy (if required) to his or her high school.
