This course is designed for those individuals who, after a number of years in one job, are changing careers and have no previous experience operating commercial trucks and/or manual transmissions. Students will experience a mix of 104 hours of urban and rural driving including mountain and highway training, pre-trip inspections, logbooks, load security, tire chains and collision avoidance training.  Over and above the 104 driving hours, students will also receive an additional 30 hours of observing vehicle pre-trips and yard operations throughout the program.  A licensed driving instructor will customize individual training, using hands-on practice and demonstrations. Students will be taught skills required to drive, pre-trip inspections of a commercial vehicle and prepare for the ICBC Class 1 Road Test.  Practical training is scheduled in four and eight hour lessons using industry current tractor-trailer units.  During the course, students will experience driving in the Fraser Canyon, Highland Valley to Ashcroft, Revelstoke, and the Coquihalla Highway, which offers some of the most challenging Class 1 terrain in British Columbia.  This course gives each student 104 hours of driving miles, therefore allowing them the opportunity to learn at their own pace while building the confidence to drive commercial vehicles.
