"I recently got my DZ licence at Humber. From the minute I showed up for the first meeting till the day of the test, people were outstanding. The instructors really cared and it showed. With respect to the equipment, I was very impressed that the Humber team is able to keep the trucks in such good shape given all the student drivers, and it was a pleasure to learn on them."
