North American AR/ARZ Training is designed to meet licensing requirements for individuals wishing to drive pickup truck type configurations that tow non air brake equipped trailers with a towed vehicle weight that exceeds 4600kgs. Landscapers, roofers, construction companies, and boat haulers that have trailers producing more than 4600kgs on the trailer axles are required by Ontario law to hold a valid AR drivers license. This program is also valuable for individuals and companies that do not require the AR license but seek a confidence and knowledge building program to assist their employees in the safe and efficient operation of a pickup truck and trailer. Contact us to learn more!

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!

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!

Students taking part in our air brake training program We take the time and teach it so that all of our students know and understand the components and how to check them and what to look for! Its not a cookie cutter 12 hour program. Contact your local campus for signup.

Anyone wanting info on Transportation Industry as an AZ driver and to find out how this high demand career can help you in an easy 6 week course call us today at 1-888-663-5272.

CBC News talks to our Ottawa campus manager on the Truck Driver Shortage in Canada.

People working in the trucking industry say a shortage of drivers is looming larger than ever, with freight and logistics companies saying they can't fill positions as fast as baby boomers are leaving them.

If you’re hauling a tandem or tri-axle trailer behind a pickup truck, you probably need an AR Licence! Not providing the proper training for your employees could cost you dearly! Provide the proper training for your employees at little to no cost to you! Ask us how!

North American is an approved Air Brake facility with Ontario Safety League. Call us for more information on getting your Air Brake Endorsement.

We are so thankful to our voters naming us the Best Truck Driving School in Ottawa! Thank you!
