Back To School: Playground & School Signs

The roads in British Columbia are busier than ever. People are fitting in last minute vacations, enjoying the fleeting summer sun, and prepping the family for another school year. With students headed back to school, understanding school zones is critical to ensure driver and pedestrian safety in these high traffic areas.

What to Do If You’re Involved in an Accident

Preventing accidents and mishaps on the roadway is one of the primary goals of driver training. When drivers are able to confidently and safely operate their vehicle, the risk of being involved in an accident can be significantly lessened - but hey - we’re all human, and accidents can happen. Knowing what to do if you’re involved in an accident is crucial to dealing with the matter in a calm, collected, and responsible manner.

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.

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.

 “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!”
