Motorcycle Training Courses
Daryle Greenizan has been riding mini bikes and dirt bikes since he was a child. He graduated to street bikes at sixteen. He is a patient and funny guy who loves to ride and teach.
Daryle was trained by Kelowna District Safety Council for his motorcycle instructors’ license in 2004. He then produced a course for the one on one student.
We welcome Duane Wheatley from Kelowna & District Safety Council. He will be a great addition to the team.
All Weather Driving School now offers 2 ways of training. We offer both one on one lessons and now offer small group lessons (max 4 students). Both courses include Parking Lot Training, On Road and Traffic Riding. Classroom theory is only offered in the Small Group Training. Plus, with the group training we can now do your Motorcycle Skills Assessment (MSA) which is equivalent to the ICBC Motorcycle Skills Test (MST).
Small Group Training
All Weather Driving School provides small group training (maximum 4 students) which includes classroom theory, parking lot training, and on road riding. This is an ICBC Approved Program. We have bike to bike (blue tooth) communication which provides you with confidence and safety. Call us to register for upcoming sessions.
One On One Training
All Weather Driving School provides on the road and/or parking lot training. We have bike to bike (blue tooth) communication which provides you with the confidence and safety that you can talk to us as you need to and you don’t feel alone. We can correct mistakes as they happen. We are the only school in the Okanagan to have this system. No waiting for others. No one else watching you. We do not do any classroom training in this course; strictly riding and discussions on specific topics are done on the course (ie gear, helmets, traffic situations). All questions are answered verbally or shown on the road. The course is set out in two hour blocks and built around your schedule. Training is done on week days and weekends. Call us to make arrangements for the times and days.
