My name is Asa Vitis, I am the owner and instructor at Burke Mountain Driving School in Port Coquitlam and have been an active driver for around 40 years. Throughout my life, I have always helped people in every way I saw fit, and specifically in coaching volleyball, which has always been in my blood. I wanted to continue coaching and working with people, but I wasn’t always sure about the best way to go at it. The idea came to me while listening to my favourite radio station while on a drive. There was an interview with an ex military general who wanted to continue contributing to society in his retirement, and by becoming a driving instructor, he felt that he had an active role in his community. I myself being an ex military sergeant was inspired hearing this, and that’s when it fell upon me that I could do the same.
I have helped dozens of students – young and old – since opening Burke Mountain Driving School in Port Coquitlam pass their driving exams with a passing rate of around 90% and with over 90% satisfied students. My personal goal is to help people improve their skills to prevent accidents on the road. My main method of instruction is coaching – not teaching – with patience for the individual needs of each one of my students.
I am very experienced in coaching and achieving goals as I previously trained athletes at the amateur and professional level. I also keep myself busy in re-familiarizing myself with the current driving rules and regulations to ensure the highest quality of service.
