Please notify us within 48 hours to cancel a lesson. A $30 fee applies if we have not received your notice to cancel.
A student who has not appeared for his/her scheduled appointment within 15 minutes of the appointed time will be considered a “no show” status and a $30 fee will apply.
If a student is late for a lesson, the lesson start time is still that of the appointed time. If we are not notified of the late arrival after 15 minutes of the appointed time, the instructor will be required to cancel the lesson resulting in a "no show" charge - $ 30.
Training Vehicle Occupants
We primarily offer private lessons between the driving instructor and student. On occasion, a third occupant may be present to enable an agent from ICBC to conduct periodic reviews of our school’s training facilities and practices (3 total occupants maximum).
Each lesson is 1.5 hours in duration. Lessons include both driving practice and verbal instruction. Some verbal instructions require the training vehicle to be parked, but actual driving practice time will be no less than 70 minutes of the total lesson time. Normally, lessons begin at the appointed time and end at the appointed time. However, due to circumstances beyond the instructor’s control, the lesson start time may begin at the time of the instructor’s arrival and end according to the lesson’s duration if it is mutually agreed to by the instructor and student.
Withdrawals and Refunds: Students are entitled to any unused portion of their fees if they choose to withdrawal from a course package less any price adjustment and 5 % processing fee. The price adjustment is the difference between the student’s rate paid per lesson and the rate of the lesson of the package offering the number of lessons taken. If no lesson hours have been used up, then only the processing fee applies.
Fees and Packages
Lessons must be paid for in advance. We accept cash, major credit cards or E-transfers. For a detailed list of prices, see Prices/Packages.
ICBC Road test

Ace Driving School holds a $ 2000 bond posted with ICBC as required by the Motor Vehicle Act Regulations. In the event of a dispute regarding tuition fees that cannot be resolved between customer and driving school, the customer may pursue the matter with ICBC, Driver Training Industry.
