Are you a new parent, infant caregiver, or new grandparent? Even if your little one hasn’t arrived yet, it’s not too early to start thinking about car safety! In our new three-part series, we’ll guide you through car safety for new parents (and caregivers and grandparents!) to make sure you’re ready to transport the most precious of cargo.
You may find yourself, one day, in the awkward position of knowing someone who is driving but shouldn’t be behind the wheel. These drivers tend to be close to us and a lot of the time the issue regarding their safety comes down to age or health issues that are known to impact things like vision, response times, and motor skills. You may also know of someone who drives without insurance or a valid licence, or maybe you’ve done that yourself before! Sometimes it can be a matter of friends, family, or even strangers getting behind the wheel while intoxicated.
It’s still summer and many of us are still itching to get on the road again and/or travel the world. So until we can do both as freely (and as safely) as we’d like to, let’s gush over these 5 scenic drives from across the globe and add them each to our bucket lists!
Weather changes and precipitation always present an array of challenges for drivers, and rain (especially a heavy downpour) can make for an especially difficult driving experience. While accident rates can be higher when it comes to rainy conditions, there are many ways to promote driver safety during tumultuous weather. It all comes down to understanding how rain affects the road and acknowledging that reduced visibility will have adverse effects on driving ability.
"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. :)"
