For most motorcycle riders, the coming of winter reluctantly signifies the end of the best time of the year. Here in British Columbia, winter brings the usual suspects: a distinct chill in the air, greyer skies and the dreaded slush that tends to put a hard stop to riding season.
As the leaves change colours and we pull out sweaters and coats, it means that it’s about that time again… maintenance time! If you’ve been following our maintenance articles, you know that each season comes with its own checklist.
As the summer winds down, it’s a great time to get a deal on a boat. It’s also the perfect time to practice your boat-trailer towing and launching skills before you head out on to the lake for the first time next year. Towing a boat is a breeze as long as you adhere to safety regulations and know some basics of trailer hauling. You’ll also want to make sure you take a boater’s exam before you go out on the water.
As the air gets brisker and everything else gets pumpkin spiced, there’s no better time to take to the road and enjoy the beauty of the incoming fall season. We’ve compiled a list of the top 5 road trips to endeavour on, before all the leaves hit the ground and we’re bundled up for winter again. All distances are calculated from right here in the Fraser Valley!
"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. :)"
