Welcome to BC Driving Blog! Since 2012 it has been the internet’s favorite place to learn how to drive and brush up on driving skills. Okay I made that up, but it sounded good didn’t it!

My name is Carmen, and I have been in love with driving since before I was born. As a kid I would watch the cars driving down the road from my window rather than watching Sesame Street.

I started this blog in 2012/2013 after deciding to resign as a driving instructor in North Vancouver. This was after nearly 10 years of teaching many different types of drivers for class 5/7 passenger vehicles, including using standard vehicles, mini-vans, and even a small bus.

I wanted to share my knowledge with the world, but teaching people how to drive one at a time was so time consuming. Why not turn my knowledge into a website, from the comfort of my own home. Who knew I would love blogging just as much as teaching driving?
