Bus drivers are often the unsung heroes of the public sector – working early mornings, late nights, and driving in all sorts of traffic and weather conditions. We can count on these driving professionals to get us where we need to go safely and on time. Bus drivers have the unique opportunity to meet people from all areas of the city, as well as many visitors and it’s a dynamic career where every day is a little bit different, even if your route remains the same.
Taking your road test to get your driver’s licence is an exciting, but sometimes it can also be an overwhelming experience. After months of driving as a learner, studying, practicing, and maybe even some driver training, the time has finally come to upgrade your licence. Everyone wants to pass on their first try and finally get that sense of freedom that comes with holding a driver’s licence!
We looked at self-driving cars almost three years ago, to discuss what they are, what their history has been, and where they were headed. With 2020 coming to a close, it’s time to revisit how far self-driving vehicles have come, what strides they have made, and if we’re any closer to seeing them on the roads!
Did you know that being a safe driver can save you money? ICBC provides various discounts that offer a break on insurance to some drivers, and they follow an insurance model that rewards drivers who are safe, while penalizing drivers who are considered dangerous and repeat offenders.
"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. :)"
