Vehicle Maintenance: Spring Edition

It is officially spring in British Columbia and you’re probably getting that unmistakable urge to clean, organize, and de-clutter. Our homes are usually at the top of this spring-cleaning checklist, but what about our vehicles?

Vehicles should most certainly be on the list not only in terms of giving your car a wash, wax, and vacuum, but to ensure you’re in tip-top safety shape for all those summer road trips you have planned, and support your vehicle’s longevity and efficiency as well.

Covid-19 and the Transportation Industry

The world is working through the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and you can see the effect in our current daily lives - fewer cars on the road, fewer people on the streets, and an increase of empty store shelves. The demand for every day essentials is skyrocketing as people stockpile and prepare for staying at home for longer periods of time, doing their best to “flatten the curve”. While so much of our attention is turned towards how we as individuals and civilians are impacting, and hopefully slowing this pandemic, the wheels are still turning out there in the transportation industry!

Parking Types & When to Use Them

It’s a necessary skill to have and makes the world of difference when you’ve mastered it and find yourself in a rush – parking. Breaking down the different parking types and the scenarios that they’re best suited for can be overwhelming when you’re learning to drive, and can be a skill that is forgotten for experienced drivers.

Handling Peer Pressure For New Drivers

Peer pressure has been around for a long time and isn’t likely to be going away any time soon. Peer pressure is an important aspect to consider once you’ve received your licence and are excited to get out on the road.

 “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!”
