ABBOTSFORD, B.C. — This year’s B.C. Professional Truck Driving Championships will take place on Saturday, May 25 at the Tradex Centre in Abbotsford.

As usual, the annual competition will combine a written test, vehicle inspection test and an obstacle course, and will pit some of the industry’s top drivers against each other.

There will be six categories of competition, ranging from step-van through to b-train.

All drivers may take part, provided they have not had a licence suspension or preventable motor vehicle accident in the past year. They must also have been employed by no more than two employees during that time.

As always, the B.C. Trucking Association (BCTA) is hosting this year’s event, and are encouraging carriers to sponsor one or more drivers in the competition. The entry fee is $140 per driver, and winners will have a chance to compete at the national championships in Saskatchewan in September. For more information, call Jerry or Michele at the BCTA office at 800-565-2282.
