There appears to be several threads discussing motorcycle riding schools in the lower mainland, but here and elsewhere there is little discussion on the schools available in and around Victoria.
Could you guys and gals who took lessons at any of the currently operating schools provide your opinion on your experiences with them?
From what I can tell, there are currently 3 schools operating out of Victoria and 1 nearby in Duncan.
Victoria Island Safety Council
Saferway Driver Training School Ltd.
