Trucking is one of the few sectors in the economy that is NOT suffering from unemployment. Recent statistics from the Canadian Trucking Alliance indicate a shortage of truck drivers across Canada, and especially throughout the province of Ontario. These kinds of statistics show promise for new truck drivers who are considering a transition into the sector. In short, the trucking industry needs drivers (especially young drivers), and because older drivers are deciding to retire, the need is ever increasing. Obviously, high-quality drivers are the ones in demand – they are the ones who possess the professional qualifications that employers are looking for today.
S&A Sprint Driving School is a truck driving school in Toronto that provides quality training that translates into high-level qualifications. Our AZ course, for instance, provides the necessary training to operate a tractor-trailer, or a combination of vehicle and towed vehicle. The tractor-trailer license would appeal to drivers who are interested in long runs, including over-night runs, or runs involving several weeks away from home base. The truth is, there are many opportunities for drivers who want day-to-day work, and who want to be closer to home base. Upon completion of the AZ course, the license gives flexibility over potential career scenarios – the AZ driver would be qualified to drive a tractor-trailer truck; a conventional truck; a dump truck; even a garbage truck.
S&A Sprint Driving School is a well-established truck driving school in Toronto, and is approved by the Ontario Career Colleges Act. We provide the highest standard of instruction, and our professional instructors are fully certified by the Ontario Safety League (Canada’s leading traffic safety organization). Our in-class courses and behind-the-wheel training are in compliance with the guidelines and requisites of Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation, and when training has been completed, the licensed AZ driver meets all of the requirements of the industry carriers.
At S&A Sprint Driving School, truck-driving courses are virtually tailor-made for each student, and we try our best to accommodate each student’s particular need and career direction. All courses are comprehensive – we focus on the latest driving techniques, and we emphasize current road and highway rules and regulations. The students we train represent a wide range of aspirations: some of them are looking for a brand new career; some of them require re-certification of their current license, or similar license; and some of them just want to enhance and upgrade their qualifications. Whatever the situation, we fully prepare our students to successfully acquire their chosen license.
The instructors at S&A Sprint Driving School employ a comprehensive approach to training, and cover the full extent of skills development, both in-class and on the road.
