Top 7 Things to See & Do at the 2020 Vancouver Motorcycle Show

Are you headed to the 2020 Vancouver Motorcycle Show, taking place between January 24th and January 26th? This show attracts vendors and attendees from around the world and showcases the industry’s best in bikes, accessories, modifications, and more. Hosted at the Tradex in Abbotsford, BC, this high-octane event is jam-packed with things to do and see! Known as “the city in the country”, Abbotsford is a great place to spend an extended weekend and indulge in your inner (or outer!) rider.

Sharing the Road with Pedestrians

“See and be seen”

As winter has arrived, driving conditions have changed and daylight hours have decreased, making it even more crucial that as a driver, you create a safe environment for yourself, your passengers and for pedestrians. Pedestrians are more at risk for injury than any other road user, as they have nothing to protect themselves from vehicle collisions. With a lack of safety features and barriers, safe and defensive driving becomes the most important protection that can be offered to pedestrians.

Interview with a Former Truck Student

We recently had the opportunity to catch up with one of our past commercial driving students, Chris Schmidt. Chris took training with us back in 2015, upgrading his licence and expanding his towing company, Jackass Towing in Mission, BC. Getting his Class 1 licence with us has provided Chris the opportunity to not only expand his business but he has also experienced driving many different commercial vehicles, and has even travelled across the country!

Meet the Companies: Challenger

The trucking industry is full of job opportunities and great companies to work for. Our truck students have access to exclusive job postings and career presentations that provide a chance to rub elbows with some of these companies, but we wanted to go more in depth. We’ll be putting a spotlight on some of the companies that we work with and that we recommend for employment!

 “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!”
