Testimonials

"Choosing to enrol at Humber College in their AZ Program was a wise decision. The program is the best in the industry and I am not alone in that sentiment. I now work for Kriska Transportation Group and am paired with a trainer for the mandatory four weeks. After only a few hundred miles on the road my trainer said, "I am seeing things from you that I haven't seen before from other trainees. You have received some excellent instruction at school." That's hearty praise both for Humber and for my instructors. If you are serious about becoming a professional driver, I heartily recommend you complete the program at Humber."
