Mandatory Entry Level Training (MELT) in British Columbia

Big news, new drivers! British Columbia will be improving their road safety in 2021 with the introduction of MELT, or Mandatory Entry Level Training for any new class 1 commercial licence applicants. With this new requirement, BC aims to reduce incidents on our roads, keep travelers, commuters, and professional drivers alike safe.

Road Map to Commercial Licensing

Driving a commercial truck or bus can be a rewarding career with room for growth. Whether it’s long hauling products on the Trans-Canada highway or operating a school bus in your local community, possessing a truck or bus licence can open new doors for you. If you’re a confident, capable driver looking for a challenge, getting your truck or bus driver’s licence could be a great career change for you.

Top 5 Reasons to Get Your Driver's Licence

Some people rush straight to the nearest ICBC Driver Licensing Office to get licenced the moment they turn 16, while others wait… and wait… and wait… If you fall into that second category, it might be time to rethink how long you’ve been waiting! Maybe the timing wasn’t right in the past, maybe you faced barriers to getting practice, maybe you’ve been able to rely on friends and family for rides up until now, but now is the time to get behind the wheel and get moving!

DIY Windshield Chip Repair

We all know that familiar sound. You’re cruising down the highway, enjoying a relaxing drive, and suddenly, you hear the loud bang as a rock hits your windshield. Upon further inspection, you’re dismayed to see a distinctive rock chip in your previously pristine glass.

 “Thank you so much for your professional approach to driver training.  I missed learning to drive in my teenage years and needed to quickly learn the rules of the road in order to pass my road test for a new job.  

The kind of service I received from Valley driving was excellent and of high caliber.  I did the entire program and all of it was useful to helping me pass my exam.  My experience with my instructor is to be commended immensely.  He was patient and helpful as I learned to drive, and without him I likely would not have passed that road test!  I'm thoroughly impressed by Valley Driving as a business and would like all of you to know that I appreciate how well each of you do your work.  Thanks!”
