Back to school time is filled with emotions; the fleeting summer heat, the sunshine, freedom from educational institutions, and for some, joy to return to a place that hosts all of their friends. Back to school can make people feel many things, and in doing so, prompts a degree of preparation like no other.
After you’ve been driving for a while and start to develop some confidence behind the wheel, it’s not uncommon to pick up a few bad habits along the way. While we sometimes shrug them off as trademarks of our own personal driving style that don’t affect anyone, the combination of thousands of drivers with a few bad habits can easily equate to an increased number of accidents.
Motorcycles are undeniable symbols of conquest. The audible rumble of a bike relentlessly grabbing gears down the highway - whether it's visible or not - conjures up archetypal apparitions of rebellious Marauders, brigades of freedom seekers, windburn, leathers, and antagonistic philosophies that hail from the place where the horizon meets the blacktop.
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.
“Thank you so much for your professional approach to driver training. I missed learning to drive in my teenage years and needed to quickly learn the rules of the road in order to pass my road test for a new job.
The kind of service I received from Valley driving was excellent and of high caliber. I did the entire program and all of it was useful to helping me pass my exam. My experience with my instructor is to be commended immensely. He was patient and helpful as I learned to drive, and without him I likely would not have passed that road test! I'm thoroughly impressed by Valley Driving as a business and would like all of you to know that I appreciate how well each of you do your work. Thanks!”
"Thank you for all the help getting me certified to ride motorcycle. The people that you have working with you are wonderful. It was a great course that brought back my confidence in riding. All of the guys that took us out riding and completed our skills testing were very knowledgeable and every single one of them was awesome. Wonderful, wonderful people that I had the please of learning from.
Thank you so much again, I can't wait to come back to visit on my own motorcycle!"
"I chose your school on reputation, and the recommendations of several grads. I certainly made the right choice. The Air Brake Course was outstanding. The Instructor made a rather dry subject fun & easy to understand. His extensive knowledge of the trucking industry was a definite plus. The Office Manager has been a god send. She did a wonderful job of addressing my needs, and making changes on the fly...and always with a smile. I can't say enough about my Instructor. He made a sometimes nervous, and anxious student feel at ease and comfortable. He answered every one of my 1000 questions in an easy to understand manner. He made the whole experience highly enjoyable and he made me feel very confident in my abilities. I leave Valley not only as a graduate but a lifelong fan."
"What a crew and what a fun experience this was. I am 52 years old and ICBC took my motorcycle license away when I immigrated to Canada from Germany some time ago.
This summer I saw a bike online I fell in love with and I purchased it. Now only the license was missing. I took the full class 6 course at Valley Driving School and it was the best decision ever. Unbelievable professional people spend lots and lots of time with theory and driving lessons and the entire experience with the crew was worth each penny I spent - thank you very much for everything you've done. I am already planning my first bike tour with my wife for the next weekend and we both can't wait. Cheers!"
We were very pleased with the presentation that Valley Driving put together for our crews. Although seven different courses in a day is a lot for the crews to digest, the Instructor did a very good job of engaging the participants with real life scenarios and questions. His knowledge as an operator was evident and added to his credibility. He kept the information simple and to the point, and the crews found it to be very informative and useful for their upcoming winter operations. Thank you very much!

"I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service we have received from every one at Valley Driving school. I really appreciated the assistance I received from the people that answered the phone, who varied from time to time, and the Office Manager, who continued to look for sooner test times for us and also from the driving Instructor.
In this day of having to manage everything on your own, it was a pleasure to have excellent customer service. For our first time having a driver going thru the licensing program, you made it very easy, and I will certainly pass on this positive experience to other parents who may be needing assistance. Thank you!"
"I have just recently received my Class 1 driving license. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you, for your excellent training and support. Due to your lessons and training I was able to pass my Class 1 test. I felt very comfortable learning from your training abilities and the ease in which you were able to guide me in driving the tractor and trailer. Your support was invaluable for me to pursue my new career as a truck driver. I would also like to thank you for helping me to find a new job as a truck driver immediately after I received my Class 1 license. Your continuned support has been a blessing and I do appreciate that I had the opportunity to learn from you.
Thank you very much for all your time and effort as well as your continued support."
"I had my class 6 learners before and rode with friends but really by the seat of my pants. I decided to get professional training and chose Valley Driving School.
I couldn't believe the difference in training from riding with buddies that may or may not be the best riders to professional instructors! You are taught the proper and safe way to ride for life.
I am a more confident rider now and will recommend you choose Valley.
The staff are great and on top of things so no training or appointments are missed."
I appreciate the professionalism of the booking department, finance department as well as reception. They respond quickly to our needs and we've developed a good relationship in that we are successful in booking very accurately what is needed, and if dates & times are not available, alternate dates are worked out and established. The facilities for classroom training are well equipped with exprienced, educated & professional staff who deliver course content in a way that makes training enjoyable and easily understood.
We have had a great success rate with the amount of students that have participated in the commercial transport training and we plan to continue using Valley. Thanks for the great work you do!
