Driving lessons are about more than just passing your road test, they’re about developing drivers that have the skills and training to contribute to an attitude of safety and confidence on the road. Whether you’re a new driver learning the ropes for the first time, or an experienced driver looking for a refresher course, there’s a training program that’s been developed just for you.
When you’ve got a new driver in the house, it’s an exciting but nerve-wracking time as your teen gets a sense of their newfound freedom. Making sure your teenage driver has some rules and guidelines, in addition to the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA) regulations, is important to keep them safe on the road and reduce the chances of accidents, fender benders, and other issues. Some of our top house rules fall in line with MVA regulations, as well as our recommended best practices.
Driving and music have been inseparably connected ever since the radio was dropped into a car almost eight decades ago. Our journey as drivers is often defined by the music we play while we drive. It starts driving around town, but then that first road trip comes along, and you have completely programmed the tunes that will play with each passing mile. Music and cars are like peanut butter and jelly.
In the third and final part of our three-part series, we are looking at lights and symbols that you will only find on newer vehicles. If you’re driving an older vehicle, this overview may be a bit envy-inducing as there are some modern lights and symbols that make it easier to figure out what’s happening with your car.
"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. :)"
