In recent months we as citizens, and businesses of all sizes have been faced with unprecedented obstacles which require that the appropriate steps are being taken to ensure we are adhering to Government Protocol and assisting in Flattening the Curve. 

E&R Professional Driver Training Centre has been busy navigating the new norm amongst COVID. With ICBC back up and road testing again, it has created a surge of students wanting lessons in all classes of licenses. If you are looking to get lessons, whether for a car, semi-truck or motorcycle, we encourage you to plan ahead by booking in advance so that E&R Professional Driver Training Centre can help you achieve your driving goals and accommodate this surge of students.

We are committed to ensuring a safe environment for all students and employees. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we continue to refer to Public Health Agency Canada (PHAC) safe-practices and the Orders and Notices from the Provincial Health Officer. E&R Professional Driver Training Centre has health and safety protocols in place for our school and riding gear.

Starting October 18th, 2021, the new mandatory entry-level training (MELT) for new class 1 commercial driver’s license applicants comes into effect and those wishing to obtain a class 1 license must complete the MELT program from an ICBC approved training school before attempting a class 1 road test with ICBC.

The British Columbia's MELT program stipulates a minimum 140 hours of practical behind-the-wheel (in-cab) driving hours, in-yard hours and theoretical instructional hours. This training program builds on-the-job skills and exposes graduates to experiences that may otherwise take years to obtain.

E&R Professional Driver Training Centre is here to help you achieve those career goals. They are one of the few schools in the North that will offers the ICBC MELT to those wishing to pursue a career in the trucking industry.

E&R Professional Driver Training Centre is licensed and bonded under the Motor Vehicle Act through the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia.

"I took a motorcycle course with Ernest and Mike in 2005. From rarely riding a motorcycle to being able to feel comfortable on the road, they were kind and patient, as well as being thorough instructors. I thoroughly enjoyed the learning process and have recommended E&R to several of my peers since."

"I had awesome training by Ernest for my class 1. The training I received has saved myself in tricky situations a handful of times. I highly recommend E&R for skill and confidence upgrades, and for excellent commercial driver training."

"I've never ridden a motorcycle before in my life, after taking the course with E & R I had the skills I needed to pass the ICBC road test. Highly recommend these guys."
