Truck Driving School

College of the Rockies is pleased to offer Truck Driver Training in our region.

We offer in-truck and simulator training across the East Kootenays. Our simulators allow individuals to become comfortable with cab controls, and gear shifting before climbing up into an actual truck. This increases the confidence and overall success of new truck drivers. In addition, our class sizes are small, and our instructors have years of industry experience to help new drivers understand what is required of them for licensing.

Courses we offer:


Class 1 - Semi-Truck Training

This course will prepare you for a career as an entry-level truck driver (semi-trucks) and give you the knowledge and skills necessary to pass the ICBC road test.

Class 3 - Dump & Tow Truck Training
