WINNIPEG, MB. - Public safety on the roadways is an ongoing concern and the provincial government is now consulting on the implementation of a standardized system for training commercial truck drivers.
They are working in collaboration with the trucking industry to provide a uniform standard for all truck drivers across the province and allow road safety to be the number one priority in issuing licenses.
Currently educators in the province already provide training, however there is no requirement for new drivers to access it.
Other jurisdictions, such as Ontario, Alberta and Saskatchewan, have either already changed their standard or are in process of working and engaging with stakeholders on upgrading to this standard.
