Graduated Licensing Program Courses
If you’re unfamiliar with British Columbia’s Graduated Licensing Program, you can get an overview on the ICBC website. Completing our Graduated Licensing Program (GLP) course is the most effective way to prepare for a lifetime of safe, responsible driving. Unlike traditional driver training that limits its focus on road rules and basic vehicle control, our GLP course also features an in-depth study of new- driver risk factors, individual personalities, and lifestyle variables. Furthermore, this course is designed for students to develop self-awareness of their driving abilities as they learn to continually evaluate themselves throughout their years behind the wheel.
“Great course, learned lots. Felt I’ve improved a lot in my own judgement and also understand myself better as a person. Thanks a bunch!” (GLP student comment – North Van class, March 2018)
The Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy for New Drivers Graduated Licensing Program is a 32-hour program open to all learner drivers in the greater Vancouver area and Kelowna. Students will take the GLP course in either a Mercedes-Benz B-Class or GLA-Class depending on their area. Completion of the program will reduce your “N” stage from 24 to 18 months and 2 credits towards high school graduation in British Columbia.Our ICBC-approved GLP course includes:
- 6 classroom-based sessions (16 hours total)
- 8 on-road driving lessons (12 hours total)
- Online program (4 hours total)
Impulse Awareness training identifies novice drivers at risk and provides strategies to help them deal with impulsive behaviour in dangerous situations. Hazard perception training helps novice drivers improve on the visual and predictive skills to recognize dangers early, and provides specific learning outcomes to deal with hazards effectively.
Parents and co-drivers are an important part of a new driver’s training. Parents can keep track of a student’s progress by reviewing coach’s notes in a log book. Parents are also invited to ride along during in-car lessons at any time. Coaches are available by phone, text or email to answer a parent’s questions and will help ensure that the co-driver’s training is fully integrated with the rest of the program.
While it is not a formal part of the GLP curriculum, GLP students will also gain access to our very own ground breaking E-Learning modules and Personal Risk Assessment exercises. In order to prepare our learners for the safest possible driving experience, we insist that all our GLP students complete the e-learning and risk assessment before getting their “N”.
