Third-Party Skills Assessment

Commercial Driver Evaluations

As the need for commercial drivers of all license classifications continues to rise in BC with local delivery, long-haul freight transportation, ride hailing, and many others being impacted, employers have a growing need to find and hire qualified drivers in order to sustain their operations

The provincial government's implementation of the Class 1 Mandatory Entry Level Training (MELT) Program, and associated costs to have driver's obtain/upgrade their commercial licences, has rapidly accelerated the need to find qualified commercial drivers in the industry.

One of the quickest ways of reducing costs related to hiring and training and development, as well as potential fleet related damages and repairs, is to hire safe and knowledgeable drivers. Having driver candidates complete a third-party driving assessment provides peace of mind that the driver has met the criteria set by our industry professionals

We were very pleased with the presentation that Valley Driving put together for our crews.  Although seven different courses in a day is a lot for the crews to digest, the Instructor did a very good job of engaging the participants with real life scenarios and questions. His knowledge as an operator was evident and added to his credibility.  He kept the information simple and to the point, and the crews found it to be very informative and useful for their upcoming winter operations.  Thank you very much!
