Punjab Driving Academy is unique in that it provides training for all professional driving licenses in Calgary. Most other schools are only focused on one type of license. On top of that, if you speak Spanish or some other language than English, you might end up spending more time understanding the instructor than learning how to drive. We have an instructor who can fluently speak English, Spanish, Urdu, Hindi, and even Punjabi. These instructors have spent years on roads to learn how to drive any vehicle you can think of. From motorcycles to heavy-duty trucks with air brake equipped trailers, they have driven them all.
If you are someone looking for a professional license to drive a full capacity bus, a truck, any vehicle with 3 axles or more, etc. we can help you obtain the training and prepare for taking the test with confidence. Here are some details about these professional licenses to help you understand them better:
Class 1 Driver Training
As a Class 1 driving school in Calgary, we help you become a professional truck driver. You can operate vehicles with 3 or more axles as part of your Class 3 license as well but you can’t drive a full-capacity bus, truck, and trailers exceeding certain weight limit etc. With Class 1 driver license you can drive anything from Class 1 to Class 5 vehicles excluding only the motorcycle which can be driven as a learner. You will also need to obtain proper airbrake endorsement training to operate trucks, buses and trailers equipped with air brakes. Punjab Driving Academy provides you full theoretical and practical training for your Class 1 license with proper certification for airbrake endorsement as well.
After obtaining a Class 1 license, you can avail the job opportunities from big companies looking for truck drivers to carry their items from city to city and state to state. For carrying any sensitive or dangerous items, these companies provide their training. These jobs are very lucrative in terms of pay but highly challenging due to hours of traveling during days and nights.
Class 2 Driver Training
You would want to obtain a Class 2 license when you want to be a professional bus driver. Once you have obtained the license, you can drive public buses and serve the public in one of the best ways possible. You must be at least 18 years of age to apply for this license and must have exited the probationary license stage. In addition to buses, you can also operate any vehicles that come under Class 3, Class 4 and Class 5 driving licenses. You can drive Class 1 and Class 6 vehicles only as a learner. Of course, since buses are also equipped with airbrakes, you will have to obtain approved certification and endorsement for airbrake systems.
Our experienced trainers help you with full-on training bus driving and the use of airbrake systems to have it appear on your license.
Class 3 Driver Training
Punjab driving is also a class 3 driving school in Calgary. Since Class 3 license is also a professional license, you can’t obtain it unless you have been taken off the Class 5-GDL program. Your age must be 18 years to obtain this license. You can drive vehicles for Class 5 license and any vehicles with three axles or more.
You can even drive trucks with trailers but if your trailer and truck are equipped with airbrakes, the weight of your trailer cannot be more than 4600kilograms. You can even drive the Class 2 and Class 4 vehicles if they do not have any passengers on them. As for buses and trucks that are on Class 1 and Class 2 licenses, you can only drive them as a learner.
