ICBC states that 80% of BC drivers have never taken professional driving lessons and BC is the province with the highest crash rate per km of roadway. British Columbia also has the highest fatality rate from vehicle crashes of any developed country in the world. I teach new drivers that developing a healthy mindset is just as important as knowledge and skills when learning how to drive. With proper training we could save lives and reduce crashes and carnage on BC roads.
