About the transportation industry 

In the Transportation Industry one must obtain a Commercial Driver's License (AZ License) in order to operate a Commercial Vehicle. As of July of 2017, Individuals must complete Mandatory Entry Level Training in order to obtain a Class AZ Commercial Driver's License in Ontario. The minimum requirement for MELT (Mandatory Entry Level Training) is 103.5 hours of training at a registered school. Upon completion of this training one must successfully pass the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario Road Test to become fully licensed.
