Putting You in The Driver's Seat

Qualified drivers are in high demand in British Columbia and across Canada.  This extensive training program builds an abundance of on-the-job skills and exposes graduates to experiences that could otherwise take years to obtain.  This program exceeds mandatory entry-level training (MELT) criteria being mandated throughout the USA and Canadian provinces.

Our professional team of driving Instructors will help hone your skills with on-road training and ICBC approved truck driving lessons. Develop practical workforce skills by training for your Air Brake Endorsement, learn detailed pre-trip inspection training, and become well versed in uncoupling & coupling the trailer.

This program also includes extensive backing practice: using a 53” trailer to give you a high level of training and experience, and mountain driving experience: taking you to new heights and pushing your resume above others.  Students also have the opportunity to experience driving a set of B-trains, including pre-tripping, reversing, turning and uncoupling/coupling of the flatdeck trailers. 

Valley Driving School has been accelerating the commercial driving workforce in BC for over 40 years. With thousands of satisfied graduates, we embrace a blend of hands-on training and practical knowledge driving lessons to provide a learning experience that produces safe and confident drivers with highly employable skill sets. If you’re ready to embrace life on the road with a new career path the Class 1 Career Program is a significant step in the right direction, giving you the support, knowledge, and confidence to get started!

"I want to thank my instructor and the friendly knowledgeable staff that made my dream to become a commercial driver come true.

I'm currently doing long-haul runs through North America and I enjoy my job.

I've accepted the challenge to begin my journey as a truck driver and there are tough times; but I remember my Instructor said it's all about your attitude. So I stayed positive and bulldoze every obstacle in my way.

Yahoo!! Thanks again :)"
