​​​​​​​Take the Class 1 MELT orientation course

To teach B.C.'s Class 1 MELT course, you must complete the MELT Orientation Course (MOC) to maintain your Class 1 driver training instructor licence.

To teach MELT theory content, you must also complete the ICBC Approved Instructor Theory Course (AIT), formerly called the "Graduated Licensing Theory Course (GLT).

How to get your Class 1 MELT designation

To obtain your Class 1 MELT instructor designation, you need to meet these requirements:

  • complete the Class 1 MOC
  • hold a valid Class 1 driver training instructor's licence

Instructors who hold an instructor's licence with a MELT designation can teach a Class 1 mandatory entry-level training course at a licensed driving school.
