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.

It often takes 12 minutes just to leave the house, remember you forgot your keys, and go back for them. In the same amount of time, Island Express Air’s signature snappy flights can shuffle passengers all the way from Abbotsford to Vancouver. The airline also services Victoria and Nanaimo with their fleet of professional aircraft, outfitted with cutting edge XM Satellite GPS technology that keeps pilots apprised of weather and terrain clearance.
The airline complements its regularly scheduled local flights with airborne sightseeing tours. From the windows of intimate planes equipped with a maximum of 10 seats, tourists drink in views of the Gulf Islands, Mount Baker, and other landmarks, dipping low enough to glimpse whales as they power-wash the plane’s underside with their blowholes. Alternatively, the airline’s private charter flights can whisk passengers to a destination of their choice.
