Zula Driving School’s Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question? Chances are we’ve answered it here.
I have never driven before. How long will it take for me to learn?
Short answer: It depends. Learn more about the amount of time it takes to become a safe driver.
What driving skills will I learn from you?
Short answer: Many. We have a page explaining all the driving skills we teach.
Who will be my driving instructor?
You can meet your driving coach here.
You’re fully booked. What should I do?
You can try contacting some of the other driving schools to see if they can accommodate the date and time you are looking for.
How long is my Learner’s Drivers Licence valid for?
The Learner Driver’s licence is valid for 2 years. If you do not go for your class 7 road test and pass during that time period, you will be required to the knowledge test again at ICBC.
Can I drive alone with my Learner’s (L) Licence?
No. You need a qualified supervisor: a person with a valid class 5, 4, 3, 2, or 1 driver’s licence. They must be 25 years or older. Or you can practice with the help of a licensed driving instructor. To learn more please visit ICBC’s website.
Why does ICBC make me wait a whole year after getting my learner’s licence before I can go for my road test?
This is a fair question and we have explained the reasoning in our Why is the Learner’s Stage a Year Long article.
Are there any restrictions associated with a Novice (N) Licence?
A novice licence allows you to drive anywhere but you have to follow the restrictions set out by ICBC, such as: zero tolerance for alcohol in blood while operating a vehicle. You can have one non-family member passenger and as many family passengers as your vehicle safely seats. Your N sign must be clearly displayed on the back of your vehicle. To learn more visit ICBC’s website.
I don’t speak English very well. Will I have a hard time understanding the driving instructor?
The short answer is no. We can workaround language barriers. Learn more in our Workaround to Language Barrier in Driving Lessons article.
I am teaching my teenager how to drive. Are there any benefits to having them take lessons with you?
Short answer: Yes. To learn more, visit our article on: advantages to having your child learn at a driving school in addition to driving time that you can provide them.
How much do you care about your students?
We care a lot about our students because we want the roads we drive on to be filled with competent and safe drivers. To learn more, view our Why We Care About Our Students article.
What is your main outcome objective for each lesson?
We want you to walk away from each lesson feeling one step closer to being fully confident on the road. To learn more, visit our article about our main objective for each driving lesson.
Why should I care if other people are distracted on the road?
Because they have no regard for their own safety or the safety of others that they share the road with. This means you need to be more aware on the road to compensate for their bad habits. To learn more, read our How do Distracted Drivers Change the Game for You as a Driver article.
