Red Road Driving School
I have been a driving instructor for a number of years, with over 2000 hours of instruction. I can teach all classes of driver license including Class 5/7, and Commercial licenses (Class 1 Semi-trailer trucks, Class 2 Buses, including school buses, special activity buses and special vehicles, Class 3 Trucks with more than 2 axles and Class 4 Buses with a maximum seating capacity of 25 persons including the driver).
I offer packages of lessons as well as lessons by the hour, and I work with students who have passed their knowledge test for their “L” (learners license) or who have their “N” (novice license) and are ready to get their full license. I offer driving lessons throughout the Fraser Valley, the Fraser Canyon area and beyond. I enjoy working with students that have struggled to pass their tests and making them confident and successful drivers. The ability to drive can improve a person’s quality of life by making jobs more accessible, connecting to new opportunities and the ability to respond to emergencies.
