ABOUT US

BEEP BEEP is a local family owned business committed to providing a learning environment that is safe, friendly, relaxed and supportive. 

We are a team of locals dedicated to safety and serving our  beautiful West Kootenay communities.

BEEP BEEP currently provides lessons in Trail and Castlegar which also support students in Rossland, Fruitvale, Salmo and Grand Forks.  

We understand all the great benefits and some of the ‘unique’ challenges life in the Kootenays provides (limited transit, extreme weather, constant changing road conditions).

Our mission is to provide our students with the skills and confidence that will set the foundation for years of safe driving.
