ABBOTSFORD, B.C. — The 2007 B.C. Professional Truck Driving Competition has been set for June 23, with six classes of competition for drivers.
The competition consists of three sections including a written test – which tests the drivers’ general knowledge of the industry and equipment; a pre-trip inspection – which approximates the drivers’ regular vehicle inspection; and the actual driving competition – which simulates the everyday skills of maneuvering, cornering and judging distance.
The six classes of competition include: step van, straight truck, single-axle tractor and trailer, single-axle tractor and tandem trailer, tandem tractor and tandem trailer, and b-train.
To be eligible to compete, each driver must be free of preventable accidents for the twelve months prior to the championships.
The one-day event will be held at the Tradex Centre in Abbotsford, B.C. and will be followed by an awards banquet being held at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel in Surrey, B.C.
