Truck Training Schools Publically Back MELT


The Truck Training Schools Association of Ontario (TTSAO) has thrown its support behind the province’s plans to introduce mandatory entry-level driver training.

The association says it represents training schools that provide a quality of training that surpasses all provincial requirements.

“Membered schools of TTSAO are not the problem,” said Yvette Lagrois, TTSAO president. “Our TTSAO schools produce solid, entry-level graduates. All TTSAO schools offer a 200-hour registered program and have been delivering quality education for decades.”

The TTSAO wrote a letter of support when the Ontario Trucking Association called on the province to introduce mandatory entry-level driver training standards.

“We were very clear in that letter that we supported mandatory entry-level driver training in principle and we were also very clear that we need to be involved in all communications regarding how mandatory training will roll out,” Lagrois said.
