Driving a commercial truck or bus can be a rewarding career with room for growth. Whether it’s long hauling products on the Trans-Canada highway or operating a school bus in your local community, possessing a truck or bus licence can open new doors for you. If you’re a confident, capable driver looking for a challenge, getting your truck or bus driver’s licence could be a great career change for you.
Some people rush straight to the nearest ICBC Driver Licensing Office to get licenced the moment they turn 16, while others wait… and wait… and wait… If you fall into that second category, it might be time to rethink how long you’ve been waiting! Maybe the timing wasn’t right in the past, maybe you faced barriers to getting practice, maybe you’ve been able to rely on friends and family for rides up until now, but now is the time to get behind the wheel and get moving!
We all know that familiar sound. You’re cruising down the highway, enjoying a relaxing drive, and suddenly, you hear the loud bang as a rock hits your windshield. Upon further inspection, you’re dismayed to see a distinctive rock chip in your previously pristine glass.
What’s new for driving in 2021? Even while the pandemic has slowed down a lot of our activities, automakers and their tech partners have continued to push through with new innovations. With things like autonomous vehicles seemingly on the near horizon, it’s fun to look at what’s available now to make our cars more like computers than just transportation devices.
"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. :)"
