“Hi Darryl,

I took my class one with you this past spring/summer.   I’m now working in Saskatchewan hauling crude oil.  I’ve worked with, and talked to, a number of new drivers in the process.  I have now realized that your training program is far superior to most, if not all, others that are available, judging by the quality of the drivers.  All the employers that I have driven with have been surprised by how well I can drive.   I appreciate the quality of training you provide, it’s made my life a lot easier.

“Just wanted to thank you again for your awesome mentoring to prepare me in such a short period.  The only thing I missed in the entire test was 3 shifts, and each time I heard your voice in my head saying “get off the clutch, get off the clutch”…and because of that, was able to recover with the accelerator.  Hopefully I can sleep without these words going through my head now..haha!

Continued success in the awesome company you have built.”

“First of all I wish to extend my thanks and gratitude to you and 1st Class Driving School for being so helpful and informative in regards to my many inquiries about the requirements for Class 1 driving and licensing in both British Columbia & Alberta.  Especially after I initially first indicated to you that I was not even going to attend a course offered by you and 1st Class Driving School!

Secondly I am very grateful for the opportunity to take my course through your school under such short notice.  Your personality and patience as an instructor were very genuine and supportive during my instruction.  I also admire your techniques and ability to explain your ideas so that I as a student had very little difficulty visualizing and understanding the principles of the instruction.

Lastly I am extremely grateful that you were able to accommodate a schedule that allowed me to complete the 30 Hour Driver Training course under not only short notice of enrollment, but within a 2 week completion time constraint as well.

So with great appreciation and confidence I would be extremely happy to recommend 1st Class Driving School to anyone interested in acquiring Commercial Driver Training by the experienced professionals at 1st Class Driving School!”

“I am just writing to let you know that all of the members of the fire department at Tahsis have taken their written test and PASSED.

Thank you so very much for your instruction; I am sure that we would not have done so well without your expert manner and teaching!”

“I just wanted to share with you that I’ve gotten a full-time job in Grande Prairie, Alberta driving logging truck.   I am starting at $30 and hour and in 3 months I’ll be up to $42 an hour with full benefits.  Thank-you very much again for the excellent training.”

“Darryl, just a quick note to tell you I’ve been hired as a career firefighter with Nanaimo City.  Your training and Class 3 program were integral to this.  Thanks.”
