Alternate Routes to Avoid Highway 1

A staple of British Columbia driving since its completion in 1961, Highway 1 is part of the Trans Canada Highway, travelling through the entirety of BC at a total length of 1,039 km. Whether you love or hate the #1, its presence is part of the fabric of BC, uniting communities and providing tourists and commuters with access to the BC coast. Finding alternate routes to Highway 1 has become more than just local knowledge and a way of avoiding traffic and congestion, as it allows drivers to discover new corners of BC they’ve never seen before.

Basic Vehicle Maintenance

In this day and age, basic vehicle maintenance has been largely reduced to a wash/wax job and refilling the washer fluid reservoir - but does it have to be that way? Are there maintenance tips that can help you to overcome the new-age of complex and intimidating cars? Of course there are.

Be Truck Aware: Sharing The Road With Rigs

Professional drivers have what can be a thankless career, with many of us taking them for granted. Do you enjoy going to a well-stocked grocery store, mall or small shop? How about receiving packages that you ordered online? These are all thanks to the truck drivers out there. They have a very challenging job and they also have to deal with oblivious drivers.

How It Felt to Get My Licence

Hoisting the Stanley Cup, seeing your partner on your wedding day, holding your newborn for the first time - there are a few important memories that we hold near and dear to our hearts. For some, getting your driver’s licence is right up there.

 “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!”
