ABBOTSFORD, B.C. -- The B.C. Trucking Association (BCTA) will host the provincial truck driving championships on Saturday, June 23 at the Tradex Centre in Abbotsford.
About 70 drivers are expected to take part, performing in front of an anticipated crowd of several hundred industry spectators, the BCTA has announced.
Drivers will compete in five categories, ranging from straight truck through to B-Train. Drivers will be tested using three tests: a written exam; a vehicle inspection; and an actual driving competition.
“In support of the industry organizing committee, the British Columbia Trucking Association is pleased to host and sponsor the truck driving championships on an annual basis to recognize the professional drivers who help keep B.C.’s roads safe for all motorists,” the BCTA said in a release.
The driving portion of the competition will begin at 8:30 a.m. and wrap up around 5 p.m. June 23. There’s no charge to watch.
