You come across them every day and often don’t give them much thought unless unsure of how to proceed. Intersections are all over our roads and an important part of driving no matter where you are, but do you know all the different types and the rules for each?
Finding a career in the fire and rescue industry is a dream for many. While the associated labour can be grueling, it is a rewarding career path that truly saves lives. No two days on the job are the same when you work as a firefighter in British Columbia. There are many factors that must be considered before embarking on your journey to become a member of the fire and rescue field, including education, training and qualifications.
At Valley Driving School, our top priority is safety and education. But that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a little fun and incredible skill behind the wheel – we enjoy watching driving videos of all kinds, from professional drifting to F1 racing, and a little of everything in between. Driving for sport can evoke a level of exhilaration and bliss that is rarely replicated. As Instructors, we work to hone our skills to ensure our driving is top notch and that we follow the law to the letter. But that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate the wilder side of driving!
While the winter holiday season of 2020 will see most of us staying home and keeping our bubble closed, it does provide a chance for reminiscing and remembering some of our favourite winter road trip memories.
This week, we sat down with some team members to write about some favourite times we’ve had over past Decembers.
"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. :)"
