July 1st will bring the introduction of Mandatory Entry Level Training for prospective Class A drivers in Ontario. Please see attached and below correspondence from the MTO that provides more details about what this will entail.

Dear Colleagues:

Hope this email finds you well. Further to the September 7, 2016, working group meeting to discuss key policy items and the January 13, 2017, meeting to discuss transition scenarios for applicants following the implementation of mandatory entry-level training, I would like to provide you with the outcome of the following approved items in the attached Q&A document:

Automatic vs. manual
Instructor qualifications
Vehicle configuration
Road test exemptions

I would also like to provide you with the attached matte article. To increase awareness and reinforce the July 1, 2017 requirement we are looking for your assistance to publish the matte article in your publication.

I would like to thank you for your time, support and expertise as it helped us make valuable improvements to commercial truck driver training and testing.
