TRUCK INSTRUCTOR PROGRAM
Valley Driving School is one of the largest and most respected driving schools in British Columbia. We are the only driving school in BC approved to teach Instructors of ALL license classes. We train Instructors from other driver training schools as well as our own. Our in-depth training is a blend of practical experience and theory instruction. We cover a range of topics ensuring our trainees acquire skills beyond industry standards. A few of the topics taught and discussed include:
- Current laws and regulations
- Student learning curves
- Observation skills
- Effective communication techniques
- Coaching techniques
- Advanced skill development
- Teaching basic and complex maneuvers
Effective driver trainers need to be more than just good drivers. They need to understand and master the skills they want their students to acquire and demonstrate. Our qualified Instructors conduct knowledge and practical testing for your Instructor trainer certification.
ICBC requires prospective trainees have several years of full time commercial driving experience.
