What are the requirements for Class 1, 2 and 3 driving instruction?

The minimum requirements for learning or licensing are to be 18 years of age and to hold a valid Class 5 license or higher (no GDL).

Do I need a medical?

Only students training for Class 1 and 2 need a medical completed before we can book them for a road test. We refer our students to the following clinics:

  • A1 Medical Clinic ($80, call 780-433-7211 for an appointment)
  • Hope Medical Clinic ($80, call 780-479-1944 for an appointment)

In addition to driver’s guides, you need to study:

Do you offer Air Brake Courses?

Yes, we run Air Brakes every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday – it’s a whole day course starting at 8am. You can book your spot calling us at 780-451-0111.

What future is there in driving a truck for a living?

Unlike many other professions, truck driving is one for which there will be an ongoing demand. Regardless of what’s being shipped and in what kind of economic conditions, there will always be trucks moving goods. The catchphrase in the trucking industry is “if you’ve got it, a truck brought it.”

What happens at a job interview for a driver?

Unlike the typical job interview, the applicant will be asked to demonstrate his or her driving skills. If you need a 2 hour refresher in the truck prior to a company road test give us a call at 780-451-0111. We are more than happy to get you back up to speed!

What level of expertise does it really take to operate a truck?

In the past, trucking firms were less concerned about a driver's level of expertise. Now, with significantly increased emphasis on safety, regulations and public perception, not to mention substantially higher demands by shippers, the emphasis is on hiring drivers who are professional in their appearance and the execution of their job.

What value does classroom training have in combination with in vehicle training?

A great deal. The trucking industry has expressed concern over many truck driving school graduates' lack of knowledge of the National Safety Code, Commercial Vehicle Operator Registry regulations and its implications, hours-of-work legislation, customer service skills, customs and border crossing procedures, U.S. operating regulations as well as general operating procedures in the industry. Classroom training addresses all of these issues.

Top Notch

I don't even know if I can thank you enough for all that you did for us ladies! We spent 3 weeks with you and your instructors. Not all day, every day, but enough that your company was an integral part of our success to becoming Class 3 drivers.

Thanks to Sandy for the Air Brakes, Log Books, and PDIC instruction.

Thanks to Rob for the Edmonton Truck Routes and pre-trip training.

Thanks to my one and only driving instructor, Dennis. We shared quite a few laughs during our 20+ hours together. And while I told him a few times that there were times that I didn't like him, he made me get out of my comfort zone and I will never, ever forget him.

Anna, the way you juggled all of us women speaks volumes about you and how you handle your job. Gennaro is blessed to have you.

And speaking of blessings, Carmela and Bruno!! Wow, thank you so much for partnering with Women Building Futures and helping us along the way. Carmela, you have a heart of gold and always made me feel welcome and were full of encouragement.

And Bruno, LOL Thanks for coming to my aid when my car decided that it didn't want to listen to me.

Top notch group with top notch leadership.

Amazing Experience

I got my class 1 license recently through Gennaro Transport Training and had an amazing experience. The instructor was very knowledgeable and genuinely cared about my questions and concerns and helped me to succeed. I couldn’t find a cheaper rate in the city on the training total. The office staff were so positive and informative and you can tell they just want to see you get your license. They were so flexible with my work schedule. Overall I would recommend Gennaro to everyone I know. I didn’t get this same feeling from any other school I initially contacted. If you choose this school you won’t regret it.
