Bus and Truck Driver Training

That Will Put You on the

Road to Success

A Cost-Effective Way to Train Your Drivers

Training municipal staff to obtain their B (school bus), C (coach bus) or D (short truck) licence can be a time-consuming experience, not to mention costly to hire a full-time trainer.

So why not leave the responsibility to an expert that has almost 30 years’ experience in successfully helping drivers to obtain their certifications?

That’s where Maz’s Truck and Bus Driver Training comes into the picture. We provide one-on-one training to equip staff with all the tools they need to pass their commercial road tests, and can also help train them to obtain a Z endorsement (air brakes).

A High Standard in Driver Instruction

Maz’s has decades of experience in helping students learn the most modern and safest driving methods. Students learn how to manoeuvre in tight spaces, and confidently handle any situation they encounter.

Whether the driver is new or is interested in licence upgrading, you can count on the experience and expertise of Maz’s to help them achieve their goals through personalized instruction.

We can come right to your site to provide the training, and vehicles are also available to use for road tests.

Services That Cater to You

Maz’s provides the instruction that best fits your needs. Personalized training can be delivered at our Waterloo region site, or travel is available to your region for on-site training.

Instruction That's Useful Down the Road

Maz’s provides all the practical skills to help drivers pass their road tests, while teaching the safest driving techniques to serve students throughout their careers. Drivers will also learn all the rules of the road for compliance.

I have recently obtained a CZ License upgrade through Maz. The training provided was very useful, Maz makes sure you understand the importance and all the things you need to understand for your upgrade. He is very flexible with your schedule. I will definitely send my referrals to anyone I know to upgrade their license through Maz.

I had great experience with Mr. William Mazmanian. He is a goal and problem-solving oriented instructor...He is very clear for every aspect of my bus driving...and always give his comments on my driving skills. I want to thank him and Maz's License Upgrading.... Kim .... Highly recommended

Kim Chi Nguyen

I got my B class license through Maz. Maz is a well-experienced driving instructor, he will tell you the key point skills on how to operate the bus and prepare for the road test. He is detailed orientated and kind hearted as he will point out in detailed your problem, and make corrections with you patiently since he wants you to pass the test in as few lessons as possible. He is a friendly instructor that makes you more relaxed and indeed can speed up your confidence in the learning process.

William Cheung

William is a good instructor that wants nothing but for you to pass your road test. He simplified everything really well (turns, pre-trip, etc..) and made it headache free. The price isn't too bad and he was fairly flexible with his training times. I recommend Maz's if you are looking to obtain your B,C, or D.

Curtis Cressman

They helped me in my bus training, and now I think my staff should learn from the good truck trainer in Kitchener, their truck training in Kitchener is awesome and they are the best. Thanks for the help.
