Our comprehensive Truck Instructor Training Course blends a unique union of practical on-road driving experience with valuable in-class theory instruction. Our Instructor Training Course covers a variety of truck training skills and maneuvers to ensure our trainees acquire the expertise to elevate students beyond industry standards.

Some of the topics taught and discussed are:

Effective driver trainers of all licence types need to be more than just good drivers. Truck Instructors need to take their effectiveness to the next level, given the size, presence, and responsibility that truckers and their vehicles command on the road. Our Truck Instructor Training Course develops the next generation of drivers and the Instructors who train them. 

Truck (Class 1) Instructor Training Course (54 hours) - $6400

Truck (Class 1-5) Instructor Training Course (159+ hours) - $13800



In order to qualify for the Valley Driving School Car Instructor Training Program, a candidate must possess a valid class 1 licence for a minimum of three years, with a safe driving record. Candidates must also submit a medical exam and criminal record check. They must also be free from any outstanding debts with ICBC, such as tickets, bridge tolls, etc. Candidates can begin their application process by contacting ICBC to determine whether they are a suitable candidate. ICBC will then provide candidates with written approval to attend a Truck Instructor Training Program.

ICBC requires potential Instructors to complete an entrance quiz and on-road driving evaluation prior to beginning the Instructor Training Course. This ensures that all incoming students have basic knowledge of the road and are safe, confident, and knowledgeable drivers.

***Certification does not guarantee that ICBC will issue a licence: ICBC may require a Certified Trainee to be retested by a Driver Examiner; and ICBC will have access to the Trainee's training and assessment records.



 “Thank you so much for your professional approach to driver training.  I missed learning to drive in my teenage years and needed to quickly learn the rules of the road in order to pass my road test for a new job.  

The kind of service I received from Valley driving was excellent and of high caliber.  I did the entire program and all of it was useful to helping me pass my exam.  My experience with my instructor is to be commended immensely.  He was patient and helpful as I learned to drive, and without him I likely would not have passed that road test!  I'm thoroughly impressed by Valley Driving as a business and would like all of you to know that I appreciate how well each of you do your work.  Thanks!”
