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!
We’re continuing with our top gifts for the 2021 holiday season, but this week we’re looking at new motorcycle riders! Becoming a new rider can be a childhood dream come true for motorcycle enthusiasts of all ages, and there is nothing better than having this dream-come-true recognized by the people around you. This holiday season, if you have a new rider in your life or if you are a new rider that wants to treat themselves, is the perfect time to celebrate that achievement!
While our staff is most definitely filled with car lovers, more than a few are avid motorcycle fans too, so we couldn’t possibly have a blog post dedicated to iconic cars and not do right by their two-wheeling counterparts…
Peer pressure is often talked about when we’re learning how to drive and even more so once we hit the road for the first time, but how often do we hear about it once we’ve become more experienced? While the topic may go away once you become an experienced driver, the issue itself doesn’t.
"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. :)"
