Is BC trailing behind - Ontario is calling for mandatory entry level training for Class A truck drivers in the province.


Saferway Driver Training​ started a large group in our Commercial Driver Entry Level Training Course this week.


This course uses the Tractor-Trailer Driver Training Manual and is based on the FHWA Model Curriculum and continues to follow the curriculum standards set by the Professional Truck Driver Institute (PTDI).
We can see what our student will see looking out the window as they progress through this course.

OTA was informed of the minister’s decision yesterday and in an article in today’sToronto Star,the minister is quoted as saying: “We are going to go forward (with mandatory entry level training). The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) is applauding an announcement from Ontario’s Minister of Transportation, Steven Del Duca, calling for mandatory entry level training for Class A truck drivers in the province.


Saferway Driver Training School Ltd. has been promoting this course in BC for the past 17 years under the owner ship of Randy A. Eckert president of Saferway.
Ontario is looking to go ahead with mandatory entry level training for Class A truck drivers in the province. When will the province of BC get their head unstuck from being buried in the sand. I always felt BC to be a leader in licensing and training but not much anymore, I feel BC is trailing behind.


As stated in my other articles in BC, Commercial Testing and Training standard are too low .
