We welcome clients from Salt Spring Island.

West Coast Driver Training can offer first lessons on Salt Spring Island followed by subsequent lessons in Duncan.

Lorne Bunyan, who used to own Cornerstone Driving School on Salt Spring Island, is now teaching for West Coast Driver Training on Salt Spring Island.

Lorne Bunyan can teach clients introductory driving lessons on Salt Spring Island and Mark Anderson, the Chief Instructor for West Coast Driver Training, can subsequently offer lessons in Duncan, where clients can practice dealing with traffic lights and other traffic conditions not found on Salt Spring Island.

For Salt Spring Island clients wanting to do lessons in Duncan, here is a link the BC Ferries schedule for Vesuvius Bay on Salt Spring Island to Crofton, north of Duncan.

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.
