CALEDONIA, Ont. — KRTS Transportation Specialists has set up a program to help Ontario’s senior A/Z licence-holders pass their annual road test.
Beginning today, KRTS is offering a special course at each of its three campuses designed specifically to help senior drivers pass the Drive Test road test.
“Collectively, our team does not accept what the Drive Test Centre and the provincial government is doing to one of our industry’s most valuable asset, the experienced professional driver,” announced Kim Richardson, president of KRTS.
The school is offering two programs for senior drivers. The first is a full-day refresher course designed for the veteran driver who wishes to use a KRTS tractor and trailer for the road test. It costs $900. The school is also offering a half-day program where the training is done on the customers’ own equipment and the road test is booked by the client. The cost for that one is $500.
“It is important that we step to the plate and do something for these great drivers who have helped build our industry,” added Richardson. “These drivers are some of the best in the business and quite frankly, the government is not helping us retain some of our most valuable people.”
For details on the Commercial 65 program, call KRTS at 800-771-8171.
