Questions for Exisiting Students
What is Schedule2Drive?
Schedule2Drive is an online scheduling system we use, when you registered we made you a profile. Instructions can be found on the Student Reference Guide that we sent you. Using Schedule2Drive you can book your lessons at your preferred times, make changes and sign off your evaluations after each lesson.
When should I complete my classroom sessions?
We ask that students complete their classroom sessions at least 100 days before their road test date. Dates are posted on the student message board on Schedule2Drive, please call the office to register for your preferred dates.
Who books my road test?
We will book your road test for you, which includes a 90-minute warm up on test day as well as the use of our car for the test. Student consent form is required.
What is the Special Guarantee?
At the advice of the instructor and provided the student logs 40 hours of practice with Schedule2Drive (our online scheduling system, which includes a practise log) and does not commit any driving violations, dangerous actions, or examiner takes control during the road test, we will take the student for one more test (excludes any fees paid to ICBC) at no additional cost to the student.
How do I keep track of my 40 hours of practice?
On Schedule2Drive there is a “Practice Log” where you can add your practice hours as you do them. We periodically check on your Practice Log to make sure you’re up to date, if you aren’t keeping up with your practice we may not be able to book your test on your earliest date.
How can I get text message reminders for lessons?
By logging onto your Schedule2Drive profile, there is an option to “edit your profile,” under that you can select the option to get text reminders 36 hours before your lesson.
What is the TeenSMART Program?
TeenSMART is an 8-hour computer program that uses behavioral intervention methodology and scientifically based instructional technology to identify and address the six factors that cause more than 90% of all teen collisions. This involves computer based tutorials, simulations and a certification test. The TeenSMART program has been proven to reduce teen fatalities while driving by 30%. We offer this to you for free as an optional part of the GLP Program, once started must be completed by test day.
“I Just earned my novice license, and my earliest exam date is two years from now…I thought it was only an 18-month wait?”
As long as you remain at-fault crash free and you aren’t caught violating the “N” license’s restrictions, you will be able to schedule your road test one month prior to being eligible.
For now, they will show you your ‘for sure’ test date – even if you violate the “N” license’s restrictions, you would still be eligible for a road test after 2 years.
“If I’ve scheduled my own test time, can I use one of your cars for my road test?”
Joan Wallace Driving School is responsible for scheduling road tests for our customers, who have completed a minimum of four lessons and their instructor indicates that they are ready for the road test. (see Road Test Package Details for more information)
It is not likely that an individual with their own test time would be able to fit into our schedule but we would try to accommodate your request.
Any time Joan Wallace Driving School schedules a road test for a customer, ICBC expects that customer to use one of our vehicles for their test.
Using your own vehicle for your own test time requires that you have the insurance for drivers with less than 10 years of experience – the vehicle must be safe, properly insured and any safety defects may disqualify the vehicle for the road test
