Owned and operated by a Class 1 professional driver, Just Drive Driving School provides one-on-one lessons customized to suit all driving needs. Conveniently open seven days a week, Just Drive gets patrons on their way to the freedom of the open road with a series of one-hour lessons in a dual-equipped vehicle, which allows instructors to take control of the car when students need extra guidance. Manual-transmission classes are also available for those who think an H pattern is something you iron on to a shirt. In addition to lessons, Just Drive also provides vehicle rentals for road tests.

Too long of a drive. No car. A bunch of water is in the way. There are many situations in which regional flights are the most practical way to travel. To that end, Orca Airways' fleet of 18 small aircraft regularly travel between five airports along the Pacific Rim that serve Vancouver, Victoria, Parksville, Abbotsford, Tofino, Ucluelet, and Qualicum Beach. With large, cushy seats, their Piper Navajo Chieftains and Beechcraft King Airs zoom travellers through the air in relaxing comfort, like when Louis XIV was catapulted from Marseille to Paris in his throne. The flights are ideal for trips to business meetings or weekend vacations. Additionally, Orca charters its aircraft for travel throughout Canada and the United States.
