Truck driving is an essential industry that keeps Canada's economy moving. Within the trucking industry, two popular job categories are local driving and long-haul driving. Whether you're considering a career in truck driving or exploring job options, it's important to understand the pros and cons of each type of job, along with their estimated pay and available opportunities.
Driving can be a thrilling and exciting experience, but it can also be dangerous if you're not careful. An important thing to consider while driving is the level of traction you have on the road. Traction refers to the friction between your vehicle's tires and the road surface. When the level of traction is reduced, your car can become difficult to control, and accidents can happen. Here are a few scenarios that can reduce traction and how to avoid accidents if you lose traction while driving.
Learning to ride a motorcycle is one of the most rewarding experiences you can give yourself. It’s chalked full of excitement, gratifying new skills, and the inexplicable sensation of being fully immersed in your surroundings as you ride. In order to learn to ride, of course, you need a good bike. What you choose to ride can say a lot about your level of comfortability as a new rider, but also a lot about your personality and character. But the bike isn’t the only thing you’ll need to invest in.
Renewing your insurance can be a tedious task with either having to physically go to an insurance agent’s office or call them up and wait on the phone for what can feel like an eternity.

"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. :)"
