Training and Confidence
Make Successful Drivers
Most people when starting a new career require some type of training especially if that career takes them on a roadway filled with millions of other vehicles traveling at high rates of speed. With recent incidents in the trucking industry truck training has come under the microscope and the requirements for training have been raised by the Ministry of Transportation. You now need 10 hours of training to drive a commercial vehicle and that requirement was just implemented in 2017. The certified courses at Ontario Truck Driving School have always exceeded those requirements with their 200 hour certified training courses. Ontario Truck Driving School also has various courses covering everything from commercial driving to heavy equipment and more. You can learn about all of the training they have to offer at www.otds.com

The Lead Pedal Podcast aims to be a positive voice for truck drivers in the transportation industry.

The Lead (pronounced “Led”) stands for acceleration or fast-track of your career. It is a play on words and we certainly are not here promoting speeding in the industry.

Professional truck drivers work for good carriers, good carriers treat drivers better, and pay better, therefore having good careers.
