To SaferWay Driver training:
My name is Garry Clode. I took your Class 1 course. I would like to say I was very pleased with the way things are done there. I came in to get my class 3 at which time Amie asked me all kinds of questions IE: what I was looking to do with my license once I had it and gave me some info/options on how to make my license to work for me. I went home and talked to many people in the industry and found out that the info I was give was spot on and to my surprise it wasn't a pay more money scenario. In fact I wasn't told to take the most expensive package either. I took only what I needed. I really enjoyed taking the class room courses (air brakes, dangerous cargo) and was glad that they were “over taught”, what I mean is, there was more info then just any driver needed and I don’t want to be any driver I want to know as much as I can to be the best I can and again my expectations were exceeded. So my next step was to drive a tractor and trailer. I had driven large 5 tons a lot but a 53’ trailer seemed a little scary but after the first day my nerves were settled. I found equipment we used was well maintained. My instructors both Ian and Randy are the best; they had a calming effect and never pushed me past my ability. We all wanted me to get better but not rushed and their method worked, really work. I had experience in driving and knew some things. And me being me wondered at first is this really the way I should be taught but I put my faith in the Saferway system and I passed with flying colors first time I asked before I took my test if I should get more hours on the road first I was told no I was good to go at which point I had my second example of Saferway not trying to dig money out of people’s pockets. I can’t say thank you enough to Saferway (Ian, Randy and Amy) for being a well working team. I’d like to say Randy you have a great company and Ian your one heck of an instructor full of knowledge and such a great demeanor, and Amie you’re the obviously the glue thank you for organizing everything in such a timely manner. Thank you all..
Thank you to all the staff at Saferway Driving School
Thank you to all the staff at Saferway Driving School. Very Professional organization which makes every effort to help you through the process. Ian and Larry are wonderful instructors who have a lot of patience and experience. Amie is always there to help you with your schedule and let you know about new jobs in the industry. I got a job within 24hrs of passing my Road test and I think being from Saferway had a lot to do with it. My instructor at my new Job is very surprised at how advanced I am with a minimum amount of Hours behind the wheel. Good job Saferway.
Thanks to all the great people at Saferway I have my Class 1
Thanks to all the great people at Saferway I have my Class 1. A really solid program with caring teachers. I want to thank Larry for Air Brakes, Amie for working with me on training time, Mark for another point of view, and most of all Ian. Best teacher I've ever had, thanks all. Ken
Wow! Saferway has been operating for a long time.
Wow! Saferway has been operating for a long time. I took their air brakes and class 4 course over 20 years ago (only woman in the class and all the guys tried to cheat off me) It was a great course and led me to getting hired by BC Transit. I totally recommend them!
I took lessons to get ready for my class 4 road test with Saferway.
I took lessons to get ready for my class 4 road test with Saferway. The instructor was very professional and thorough. He knew the things ICBC would test me on and made sure I was confident doing them. He also took me on a mock road test. I felt so much more prepared going in to the test and I passed! I am now more employable in the childcare and community support worker field. Many summer camps and after school care employers will ask for you to have a class 4 driver's license.
