Studying theory and understanding the rules of the road are very important, but having practical driving skills and abilities are going to play a large part in your on-road experience and success. Whether you are heading out for your first drive after getting a licence, gearing up for a road test attempt, or somewhere in between, where and what you practice on the road is important to know before you get behind the wheel!
The realization that your vehicle has incurred a flat tire can be unnerving and cause panic, especially if it happens while you’re driving. You can also get a flat tire between drives, which is one of the reasons that it’s important to do a pre-trip check before you hit the road. We’re breaking down the aftermath of having a flat tire so if it does happen to you, you’ll be prepared and can skip the panic stage!
Have you been thinking about getting a dash cam installed? Are you on the fence about whether the financial investment is worth it for you to have another gadget in your vehicle? Dash cams have become increasingly more popular over the past few years. The main purpose is to record every detail that takes place on the road around you, and this footage can be useful for a variety of purposes.
To round off our gift guides for 2021, we’re looking at those that have helped drivers, riders, and truckers get to where they are - the qualified supervisors! Depending on what licence you’ve gone after, you’ve spent anywhere from one month to twelve months being watched and mentored by a qualified supervisor. Professional Instructors, parents, and friends have all been there to share their knowledge and let you practice, and the holiday season is a great time to show your appreciation!
"A special “Thank You” to you. From what I was told, you never let my daughter put her guard down. Good for you.
I appreciate all the hard work and dedication you’ve given to my daughter. I will recommend Valley Driving School to as many people as I can.
Again, “Thank You” to everyone. Who knows…maybe my daughter will be back for other types of drivers training ie: motorcycle, standard, or even semi-trucks. Could happen. She ‘loves’ to drive.
"I just wanted to send along a “Thank You” to all of you at Valley Driving School.
This has been a great experience for both my daughter and myself.
The office staff have been wonderful and always willing and able to sort through scheduling that works for us.
It can be a scary world out there driving our streets and now I know my daughter has been taught properly on how to handle those situations.
She’s a confident relaxed driver and I am a confident relaxed passenger/parent."
"We just wanted to tell you how impressed we were with the professional and thorough instruction our children received over the last several years.
Both kids' instructors were always punctual, polite and patient, giving our kids the knowledge and confidence to drive well and safely. Both passed their 'N' test on the first try. All dealings with the office staff were pleasant as well.
We would not hesitate to recommend Valley Driving to other parents looking for the right place for their children to learn to drive. Please pass our compliments and thanks to instructor! :)

"I want to thank my great instructor and helping me overcome my fear of driving.
I have failed the test a couple of times before taking lessons with him and frankly, this is the best investment I have done lately.
He helped me become a better driver, (I will always remember: mirror-signal-shoulder check), have confidence in myself and pass my test.
Great job! Thank you!"
I had 5 lessons with my Instructor and he was incredible, clear instructions and always updated on things I needed to do better right when they happened.
It felt like he wanted me to succeed not only because its part of his job, but because he genuinely wanted me to. The cost of the lessons were minimal in comparison to everything I have learned and I passed my road test on my first attempt.
"My instructor is kind and patient.
She made me feel comfortable behind the wheel and shaped me into the N driver I am today.
Everyone at Valley Driving School is really nice and welcoming. Also, the classroom is a good learning environment.
I highly recommend this driving school. Everyone I know got lessons there. :)"
