Class 1 Mandatory Entry-Level Training (MELT) Program

Gold Star Professional Driving School is known for its quality service and experienced instructors, especially for Burnaby Class 1 road lessons. Most of our students come to us with absolutely no experience, and we love it! Why? Because we get to teach them! We get to watch the excitement on their faces and the sigh of relief when they pass their road test and it gives us great pride and joy to be a part of such an amazing journey


Gold Star Professional Driving School is excited to announce that we are the first Burnaby driving school to receive approval to begin the new MELT program which has been implemented by ICBC recently. Our Burnaby driving school is open 7 days a week and we are more than happy to work evenings if it suits your schedule!

We are pleased to share that in 2020, 93% of our students passed their road test on their first attempt. This is GREAT news for us and we are so proud and happy for each and every person who we have had the pleasure of teaching. Our Burnaby driving school aims to be the best and although our passing rate is not a perfect 100% we are very happy with our number and are sure that it will be even higher this year. Obtaining a Class 1 license isn't it easy but it is an amazing process to go through and an achievement that you can appreciate for the rest of your life. Our Class 1 driving school in Burnaby is one of the best, not just because of our awesome first time passing rate (ok we will stop bragging now) but because we take pride in each student who comes to us for help regardless of whether they pass on their first attempt or fourth attempt. The point is....all of our students pass!

The most popular for us is Class 1 Driving Lessons which we have invested a lot of time and effort into in order to make sure we are the best and most affordable. Our certified instructors are fun and will give you the education you need.


A typical lesson starts off with a quick recap of what was learned in the previous lesson. The instructor will prepare a plan for each lesson beforehand so that no time is wasted and you will learn everything you need to know.
