The Benefits of Defensive Driving for New Drivers

The responsibility to drive defensively rests with drivers in British Columbia but, what does it really mean to be a defensive driver? Defensive driving goes beyond just following the rules of the road. It means anticipating the actions of other road users and taking measures to prevent incidents and collisions on the road.

Properly Securing Your Load

We’ve all seen it – the person who underestimated the size of their order versus their vehicle at the furniture store, the car with a too-large load halfway out of the trunk, or the mattress strapped precariously to the roof. Improperly or unsecured loads can pose a serious danger not only to you, but to other drivers and riders on the road. Even pedestrians can be injured by an improperly secured load.

Top Industries for Commercial Drivers

Are you looking for a change of pace or a new career? You may want to consider the trucking or commercial driving industry in BC. In British Columbia alone, truck drivers are a vital part of numerous industries across the province, such as logging, construction, mining, food, fuel, and logistics. Trucking companies provide a transport service that is time-sensitive, flexible, and can deliver goods door-to-door. Trucks and commercial vehicles are on our highways 24-7-365: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Coquihalla Highway Drivers Safety Guide

Whether you’re a commuter, wine lover, tourist, or commercial driver, you’re likely familiar with the Coquihalla Highway that connects Vancouver and the Okanagan Valley. This 186km stretch of BC’s Highway 5, known for its steep incline and unpredictable weather conditions can surely be viewed as a beautiful, scenic drive through the mountains but should also be treated with caution as ICBC estimates 400-500 crashes every winter season.

"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.  

Best regards"
