Our plan is that Lorne Bunyan can offer introductory driving lessons to new drivers on Salt Spring Island and then Mark Anderson, the owner and Chief Instructor of West Coast Driver Training, can offer subsequent lessons for Salt Spring Island clients in Duncan or Nanaimo, where they will encounter traffic lights and other road conditions not found on Salt Spring Island.

We typically meet Salt Spring Island clients at the BC Ferries terminal in Crofton.

We can pick up clients at the Crofton Ferry and drop them at the Crofton Ferry afterwards. But with the travel time between the Crofton Ferry and Duncan we recommend that Salt Spring Island clients consider doing 2 hour, 2.5 hour or 3 hour lessons rather than our usual 90 minute lessons.

Our lessons are typically 90 minutes. With a 90 minute lesson starting in Crofton, a significant portion of the lesson time is consumed by travel time between the Crofton Ferry and Duncan and back again. A longer lesson time gives the student driver more time in Duncan doing traffic lights and other driving conditions not encountered on Salt Spring Island. We can provide pricing on lessons that are longer than our standard 90 minute lessons.

As one example, a 2.5 hour lesson between 8:45 a.m. and 11:15 a.m., between the 8:40 am arrival in Crofton and the 11:25 a.m. departure from Crofton, would be $216.66 plus GST, or $227.50. This currently seems to be the most popular time for Salt Spring Island clients.
