Top 5 Big Rig Movies

There have been countless movies featuring cars like the 1948 Ford De Luxe Convertible in Grease, the 1963 Volkswagen Beetle in The Love Bug, the 1967 Shelby GT 500 in Gone in 60 Seconds, the 1970 Dodge Charger in The Fast and The Furious, the 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 in Back to the Future, and the list goes on and on! Those are for another day though; what about trucks - and not just trucks - but big rigs? There are a lot of movies featuring big rigs possessed by demons or driven by a serial killer but what about the fun loving, family-oriented, risk-taking, and hardworking truckers!

Meet the Companies: Bison Transport

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. This week marks the beginning of a new feature, where we’ll be putting a spotlight on some of the companies that we work with and that we recommend for employment!

Being a Better Supervisor

Supporting a new driver is an important role and can be asked of parents, guardians, family friends, or extended family members. For many of us, this means stepping into a different position than the one we’re used to; mentoring and guiding a new driver to become a safe, confident, and independent road warrior. While it may seem like you’re just there to fulfil the “qualified supervisor” restriction that ICBC requires of new drivers, this role is far more than that.

Becoming a Lyft or Uber Ride-Hailing Driver

If you’ve enjoyed the odd drink with friends after work or on the weekend, attended a concert downtown, or needed a lift home while your own vehicle was in the shop - chances are you’ve called a cab, a friend, or even a designated driver service for a ride. Ride sharing is finally being given the green light in BC, so Lyft and Uber are now an option to get home safely.

 “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!”
