Professional Drivers are in High Demand!

Class Starts Today!


Registered as a private career college under the
Private Career Colleges Act 2005

We are a Private Career College.  We don’t teach to pass a test, we teach for life! We will never have you run the Drive Test “Track” endlessly day in and day out and we don’t teach you to “pass the test”.

Every course we offer, including our AR and D programs are built using the Ontario MELT Standard for A Class drivers. This is our commitment to providing the most consistent level of knowledge to every student regardless of licence class and ultimately improving road safety!

We are constantly updating our course presentations in order to enhance our classroom learning experience.

Compare our courses to anyone else in the industry and our commitment to an enhanced training standard comes shining through! Our ACZ courses are one week in the class and 5 weeks at the truck, after all we are not teaching people to drive a desk!

Every trade/occupation has its “tools of the trade”. Its like a hammer to a carpenter. Only North American supplies its students with the tools that they will not only use in school but in life! Another example of our commitment not only to our students but improving road safety.
