Get a brand new career in less than two months. Learn how to drive a tractor trailer and earn your Ontario AZ licence (license) in a program designed by experienced trucking professionals.

Humber College graduates of the AZ program have a 96% employment rate.

At Humber, you learn from instructors who have years of experience in the field, with modern tractor-trailers. You use the tractor-trailer you learned on for your road test, which is conducted by Humber College.

Transportation companies across the GTA look to Humber as a leading source of potential employees, with many sending current employees to Humber for tractor-trailer training.

Learn everything you need to know about this high-demand employment field, including safety regulations, fuel-efficient driving, traffic and road management, and more.

The class 'G' to 'AZ' licence training program can be taken days or evenings. The program takes 10 weeks to complete if taken during the day or 13 weeks if scheduled evenings.

The program consists of three components:

  1. A 'Z' Air Brake Endorsement course scheduled over two days.
  2. A 56-hour in-class component of training.
  3. 144 hours of in-vehicle training. (The in-vehicle training is delivered on a Monday to Friday basis.)

The vehicle is also supplied for the Ontario AZ road test, which is administered by Humber.

The full fee for the program for the 2018 Winter Semester is $9,299 (Course and program fees may be subject to change.)
