Now that ride hailing services like Lyft and Uber have arrived in British Columbia, it’s important to understand how to keep yourself safe and utilize best practices as a rider. These services can be a great alternative to traditional taxi services and with added features like payment through the app, GPS navigation, ride splitting, and location tracking, it’s no wonder their popularity has risen exponentially in recent years.
At Valley Driving School, we are proud to be a great place to do business with and a great place to work. Have Fun At Work Day was earlier this week, and we always want our employees to be excited to come to work and have fun while they’re here! When we reward our team members for their effort in meaningful ways, it makes Valley stronger. We have a track record of retaining great talent, and their dedication to their work shines through in our programs and training.
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.
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.
"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. :)"
