We offer in-car, individual, one-on-one lessons only. No other student or observer will be in the vehicle during your lesson.
For your convenience, single lessons, as well as driver training packages, are available. We can also provide you with the use of our school vehicle for your road test, if you are ready for it at the end of your training package (requires advanced booking).
Fees are payable in full before or at the time of the first lesson for all packages, otherwise a single lesson fee will be applicable at the time of each lesson, and due before the lesson commences.

• Use of School Vehicle for Road Test:
You may like to arrange to use one of our driver training vehicles for your ICBC road test. Fees for this service are outlined in the school price list, and are payable prior to the road test. [Road test session requires minimum time of 2 hours and includes approximately 45 minutes of warm-up/practice time prior to the road test].
• Lesson Duration:
Each 1-hour lesson (or 1.5hour lesson) consists of approximately 55 minutes (or 85 minutes) practice time, plus 5 minutes to review your progress and to book your next lesson.
• Cancellation & Refund Policy:
Late cancellation/no-show fee of $50.00 will apply if the lesson is cancelled by the student without adequate notice. Late Cancellation charge will also be levied if a student does not attend a booked appointment or is unprepared to take their lesson for any reason (ie: no driver's license on hand). This fee covers rescheduling and instructor time. We will gladly reschedule any appointment without penalty if given adequate notice (see below) or with a doctor’s notice in case of sudden, serious illness or injury. Cancellation or change of a regular lesson requires 48 hours notice, except for Monday lessons, which require 72 hours notice as the scheduling office is closed Saturday/Sunday (and Statutory Holidays). 72 hours cancellation notice also applies to ICBC Road Test appointments booked for the student by BBWest Driving School.

Please send refund request to firstname.lastname@example.org You will receive a full refund – minus the processing fee collected by the payment processing firm (3.5% of your total payment).
The refund will be processed as soon as possible, but it can take around 14 days for your money to arrive back on your card.
Refund requested after your first lesson: You may also request refund for your remaining lessons after the first lesson has been completed. In such case, single lesson fee will be deducted from your payment and the remaining amount will be refunded – minus the processing fee collected by the payment processing firm (3.5% of your total payment).
