Teaching safe drivers of the future








Hi Russ
My family and I would like to extend our thanks for the helping our daughter to pass her test. Without you I don't think she would have passed the test.
With the information and knowledge you gave her before she went for her test was greatly informative and greatly appreciated. I will be calling you again
and go through your driving school, because I have 1 more daughter that is getting to that age where she is going to be driving soon.

Hi Russ,

Greg passed his driverís test with flying colours! The examiner said that his driving was exceptionally good. Only one error (failing to shoulder check in a cul-de-sac).Thank you so much for your excellent instruction. You have a significant gift for putting people at ease and encouraging them.

We will certainly recommend you to others.

Russ, Thank you again for teaching Jenna to drive. Your patience and calm demeanour are a great asset with nervous your drivers. You gave her the knowledge and confidence to be on the road by herself. Your service is very reasonably priced which helped us to give her a lot more lessons than she would have got elsewhere! We are proud to tell our friends and family that Jenna passed with 100% on her road test!!! That gave her a lot of confidence about her abilities. We havenít seen much of her since the day she got her N! I would be happy to recommend you to anyone I know who needs to take driving lessons! See you for the Class 5 brush up!!

 Hey Russ, thanks a lot for your help during my practice for the road test. Your knowledge and teaching ability really helped me to pass the test in the first attempt. Wish you all the best!

I would highly recommend Russ as a driving instructor. We contacted Russ and he accommodated our request to provide specific driver training. Our son had already had many driving lessons where he learned good driving skills but he had developed a habit and a mind set of making judgment errors when making left turns and was too hesitant when making right turns. He failed the driving test 2 times as a result of these habits. Russ coached him to make better decisions and assessments when driving. After each class he spent time explaining in detail what areas needed practice and helped to extinguish that mind set that was preventing our son from gaining the confidence he needed to pass.
Thankfully 3 times the charm and with Russ's coaching our son is now a new driver.

Thank you so much for all your help. Without a pre practice from you I wouldn't pass the test I guess. I would recommend any friend to your driving school in the future. (May 30th, 2011)

Hey Russ. Good news! I just passed my test with only 1 error! Haha. Thank you so much Russ. I couldn't have done it without you. (May 2, 2011)

Russ was a great instructor, was very encouraging, flexible and helped me tremendously to get my drivers licence! (April 5, 2011)

Iím so happy that I found this school. Russ was super helpful, easygoing and the reason I passed the test with almost no mistakes. I recommend Galaxy Driving School and Russ to everyone.                                                                                                                                                Timi

I have no hesitation in recommending Russ Pollard and the Galaxy Driving School.  I was a very nervous learner, and Russ was so patient and so unbelievably calm during each lesson that it made what could have been very nerve-wracking a much more pleasant experience.  I have given his name to my several of my friends and even to my mother!  Many thanks for the teaching and confidence. Now, if I can only remember to shoulder checkÖ

Just letting you know that I passed my N, with one missed shoulder check and a few minor things :) She said I passed with flying colours and I thank you for all your help. :)

Thanks for all you help.

At first I was scared to start driving and was very sceptical about taking lessons.  Once I decided to go for it and had met with Russ, I began to look forward to my lessons.  His teaching method was comfortable, informative and very practical.  With Russís guidance and patience, he taught me to be the confident driver I am now.  Russ was not only my teacher, but he became my friend.  I would highly recommend Russ as a driving instructor, particularly for people like myself.

I really liked Galaxy Driving! If your hands are shaking when you are driving, I recommend Galaxy Driving.
Russ will help you drive well! I only had 5 lessons and passed the road test the first time!
If you listen to what he says and remember what he teaches you, you will pass the road test!
Thanks again to Russ! I will tell my all friends who have a road test soon!

Hi Russ,

Scott passed with flying colors, the only thing he really goofed up on was the parking, which he usually does a good job at I thought. Anyways, thanks for your services, I'll call you again in a few years when our daughter is sixteen,


It's an honor for me to give my heartily comment on this website. To be honest, three times I failed the class 5 road test, but when Russ helped me as my road test lesson Instructor, I passed! With his dedication on teaching students the best he can in driving, you feel confident on how you drive.! Every now and then on your lesson, He sketched on how you handle the situation on the road! He's not just an instructor but a friend as well! New car to use on driving lessons and affordable rates!        
Thanks a lot Russ for the effort of helping me,
Frank (Maple Ridge)

Thanks again for all the help Russ!  Couldn't have done it without you!

I would recommend Galaxy driving school to anyone who wants to learn how to drive and feel confident driving. Russell is an excellent instructor who is committed to teaching proper driving techniques and safe driving in a simple and easy to understand way. He cares about his students passing their tests and makes sure you're well prepared.  What really got me was that I was able to find such a quality driving school for such a good price!


Thank-you for the driving lessons you gave our daughter. You did an awesome job. You made her feel comfortable and confident for her test. We will be passing along your name to everyone we know needs lessons. My sister will be contacting you soon for her daughter.

Thanks a lot for all the help you gave me in each lesson. It was great that you were patient and calm which helped me being a better driver. I am thankfull that you stayed at ICBC untill my driving test was done.

I highly recommend Galaxy Driving School. Not only does Russ cover
everything necessary to pass the test, he will also turn you into a
safer, more confident driver. He creates a calm and relaxed
environment, he does a student evaluation after every lesson and
he does mock driving tests closer to your test date. He is able to
cover a lot of vital information as well as keeping it interesting in
a small amount of time, absent of the boring classes. Without his help
I would not have passed and I recommend him to anyone who wants to
become a better driver. Thanks a lot Russ!
