In the fast-paced world of commercial driving, regular vehicle maintenance standards should not be overlooked. Commercial vehicles, such as semi-trucks and buses, endure demanding conditions on the road and neglecting proper maintenance can compromise not only the vehicle's performance and the safety of the driver and other road users but also cost the driver and company lost revenue due to vehicle downtime or fines from Commercial Vehicle Safety & Enforcement (CVSE) inspectors.

Commercial Drivers Guide to BC Weigh Scales

As a commercial driver, having a good understanding of the weigh scale system in BC is important. Highway checkpoints, also known as weigh scales, allow the Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement Branch (CVSE) to inspect vehicle weights and conduct vehicle inspections. The CVSE is entrusted with the task of ensuring that all commercial vehicles comply with the rules that govern scales on highways in British Columbia. Only commercial vehicles with a licensed GVW (gross vehicle weight) exceeding 5,500kg are required to report to scales.

"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.  

Best regards"
