Very nice and reliable driving teacher.

James Y. Kazinets 03 February, 2017 @ 8:42pm

I was looking for a good driving teacher for 3 weeks. Finally, after analyzing pros and cons I decided to call Eric. I made a good choice because he did his job in professional manner and answered all my questions.
His advantages:
1. Clear driving language (you exactly know what to do and when to do)
2. Precious pieces of advice (not only during driving lessons but before exam)
3. All mistakes are corrected immediately (you do not make the same mistake next time)
4. Good value for money (the best offer in tri cities and probably in Vancouver)
5. Eric is a scanner (he knows what you need to drive safe)
As a result, I took 3 lessons and passed my class 5 exam from the first time!
Not bad, right? Do not waste time. Call him now!

Good start to 2017!

Mr. Eric is really good, experienced, professional teacher. I was really impressed on how he was teaching me. At some point I was sure that I’m not going to pass a driving test from the first attempt as I never drove a car before, but he proved that it’s possible. I passed on the first driven test! Every minute of every lesson with Mr.Eric was amazing for me and I am so grateful to have had him as my instructor.
Mr. Eric guarantees comfort and high-quality teaching and believe me, you won’t regret it.
Don’t wait, just call his number right now 😉

BB West driving school was super helpful. These driving lessons really helped me out! I’m really glad I took them – they have taught me a lot. Really worth doing!
I learned so many things that are really helping me improve on my driving thanks to Eric!

Eric is very friendly and it really shows that he is an expert at what he does. I was very nervous about trying driving especially since I am not a young person, and so it’s much harder for me to learn new things. But Eric was very accommodating and really helped give me confidence on the road. My daughter also took lessons with him, and when i see her drive i really feel at ease because it shows that she learned how to drive properly and safely.

I am so glad I chose BB West Driving School. Eric is a great instructor, he taught me everything I need to know and helped me gain the confidence I was lacking. I was so scared to start driving, but after the first lesson I already felt more confident. I feel fully prepared for my road test thanks to Eric. I will definitely recommend BB West to everyone I know!

I started driving school with Eric a couple months before my road test, and I had not even driven once before. He taught everything perfectly, was stern on his ways, but still made it super fun and relaxed. He made it easy to work with my work schedule, and had me repeat each move until I got it right. Not only can I drive perfectly, I can also park perfectly in reverse and parallel. I’m glad to say that after 20 lessons with Eric, I passed my road test on the first try with flying colors, and I could not be happier. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone I know.

I would highly recommend Eric from Peerel Driving School to any new driver, if you want to pass your test and drive safely with confidence – look no further! Eric’s explanations are precise and easy to follow and somehow he manages to keep his great sense of humour throughout. I was able to sleep the night before my test confident in the instruction I had received, and passed with only one comment (I went too slow at one point). Thank you Eric I would not have been able to do this without you!

I highly recommend peerel driving school. I had let my drivers license expire past the three year mark and had to take a road test. after failing on my first attempt, i decided to hire a professional. eric was easy going but helped point out areas i needed to improve upon. he was very detailed and knowledgeable on every aspect of safe road practices. i learned many valuable skills from him. i needed my license for a new job starting January 1st and now I have it. I will definitely refer eric to future drivers. thank you again eric!

I recommend Peerel Driving School to anyone who wants to learn how to drive or for anyone who wants to improve their driving skills. Eric is patient, calm, and very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to my closest friends and relatives because I am confident that he will teach them safe driving skills to last a lifetime, just like he did with me. I passed my first driving test with no issues and I am a confident driver, all because of Eric.

Remarkable patience, unique style!

Beata Radoszewski 23 August,2013 @ 17:27pm

Eric as my teacher presented a unique style of teaching and showed remarkable patience, especially to me as a future mother. Despite holding a driving license from my country and the lack of experience as a driver, Eric taught me new laws and rules on Canadian roads. He did it in a professional manner, tinged with great humor. I am very grateful to him for the excellent work he has done, without his teaching, my license still would not be achievable thing for me. (probably)

My wife took her first driving lesson with Eric at Peerel driving school in Port Coquitlam, she has never drove in her life before. Eric helped her to gain confidence and now she is driving by herself almost every where. We are very thankful for Eric to teach my wife the essential driving skills. Regards,

Best driving school

Rim El Malek 26 July, 2013 @ 17:32pm

After long search to pick the best driving school, I chose peerel driving school because of the reputation Eric has. I had zero experience and I have passed the first time. Eric is a very professional instructor and without his patient and unique way of teaching I would never be that confident in driving. I highly recommend Peerel Driving School with Eric.

A lot of my friends complained about picky examiners and challenging road test in BC. One of the few persons who passed the test on the first time recommended me Peerel School. I am glad I followed her advise. Eric is very knowledgeable, reliable and patient teacher. I liked his way to pay attention even to small details, to explain situation on the road and logic. Eric is honest and realistic in his assessment of skills and potential success. His focus is not only to prepare for an exam but to teach how to drive safely and understand the situation on the road. …and yes – I passed on the first time!

Eric was an excellent teacher overall. He really takes the time to teach you every single detail in order for your success! He was very patient and understanding, and was very helpful when I did something wrong. We would pull over and he would draw the situations of what I did wrong and what I should’ve done, making it extremely easy to understand. I was overwhelmed by the amount of rules I had to know, however Eric over prepares you, so your test with be a breeze. Highly recommend him! Thanks,

I was nervous to start driving. Yet at 21 with no experience Eric was able to teach me how to drive in two months! I passed the test first try with a total of 15 lessons. I felt at ease and learned very quickly. He’s great instructor and I would highly recommend him. – Alyssa age 21

I had to pick up driving quickly because of my career, and at age 28 I didn’t know if I would be able to pick it up in time ….but in less than 15 hours worth of lessons, Eric whipped me into shape and gave me the skills and confidence to pass the test on the first try! Thanks so much Eric.
I wish you continued success!

Jelger 16 November, 2011 @ 18:14pm A short while ago I moved from Belgium to Vancouver, BC. Since my driving licence couldn’t be exchanged, I had to pass the road test. Eric Peerel was the best teacher possible to prepare me for the test. During the assessment class he taught me all I needed to know (and more) about the Canadian driving style and testing. I passed the test right away. Thanks Eric!

hank you Eric for getting my daughter fully prepared for her road test and all the skills you taught her along the way. She gained confidence and knowledge over the 6 lessons she had w/you and your coaching and presence day of the road test was invaluable. She passed with flying colours on her first try! It was a big moment in her life, her and I appreciate all you contributed to getting her there!

The best driving lessons!

Alecs 7 July 2011 @ 21:54pm

I wholeheartedly recommend Peerel Driving School. Eric genuinely cares about his students and this shows in every lesson! He has a very laid back style of explaining any type of maneuver or traffic sign, including parking (which I personally had a bit of trouble perfecting). He is very friendly and his personality allows you to be very comfortable behind the wheel. He breaks down the steps you need to take in order to accomplish your goal, and helps you see it through! Eric is also very committed to helping you pass the exam and attain the skills necessary to have a good driving experience for the rest of your life.
