Remember those old movies where teens would borrow their parent's cars and drive up to a mountaintop lookout, appropriately dubbed ‘makeout point’? The date night drive has been with humanity since the inception of the automobile into popular culture, helping to make the journey of relationship building as important as the end destination.
Our doggos accompany us to the park, we walk together, they’re there when we get home at night, they comfort us when we’re upset; the least we can do is take them for a car ride, but keeping them safe in the car is always a debated topic.
Understanding driving surfaces is paramount to grasping and comprehending vehicle maneuvering and control. Gravel, asphalt, concrete and composite hybrid varieties of road materials can create unique driving surfaces. Knowing how to adjust your driving habits in varying situations is a powerful tool to avoid skidding.
We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again - we have the best backyard on earth.
British Columbia is home to some incredible natural and man-made attractions and landscapes, accessible via train, plane, and ferry - but the automobile is still king of the sightseeing throne. Wintertime in BC means getting outside to enjoy some of the best winter locales this side of the equator, and to explore our environment in all of its glory.
"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. :)"
