“Thanks to all of your team, Brian, Adam, Brian, Derek, Tom, Paul, and Shannon for helping me to get the class A license! I am happy that I completed my class A road test today … and I would like to thank all of the NATT team for your support here! I appreciate the guidance and patience! I do recommend getting the truck license through NATT! Thank you again!!” Ricky
“NATT has been a wonderful experience for me, when I enrolled into their DZ program I was very nervous because I’ve had no prior experience. The enrollment process was easy after talking with Shannon, she even provided a list of things to do for pre enrollment that was EXTREMELY helpful! We started our zoom classes early January and met our teacher Adam D. Now sitting infront of a screen for 8 hours a day reading a text book is boring, its very obvious that not a whole lot of people enjoy doing that because it in itself is boring, but Adam found ways to try and make it entertaining to keep people as engaged into the material as possible. What made it better were the home made instructional videos and the very dry but comical humour 😹.
The in person learning was very much the same. The next week was the schedule 1 inspection training. Derek did a wonderful job showing me the ins and outs of doing an effective schedule 1 inspection while showing extra tips and tricks. Now getting to the in cab training where the nerves really kicked in. Getting in the drivers seat for the first time was nerve racking, Derek did his best to make me feel more comfortable in the drivers seat and getting used to the movement of the larger vehicle (despite the crappy winter roads and weather we had that day, which was good because controlling a fishtail was burned into my memory). By the end of the day I was fairly comfortable operating the vehicle. The day before my D class exam I was back with Adam. We did everything from top to bottom, if we did an inspection and he or I wasn’t satisfied with the item, we would re approach it right away and fix any technical grammar. When we did our drive through the exam route and there was something I knew I could do better at then we would run it through again, even going through the roundabout multiple times because I wouldn’t take my right of way or my turn was too sharp, or my exit out was really shaky. At the end of the day we did multiple mock inspection tests and I asked all the questions I could think of and Adam provided with all the answers that he had within his arsenal. Exam day, this was it, I either pass or fail and would have to redo the exam. I met up with Adam and asked any last minute questions and then it was time to execute the exam. Perfect on the schedule 1 inspection and only 9/30 errors on the road making me a new holder of a DZ license! By paying attention to the course material and actually taking advice from all my teachers definitely proved useful and can attest that even when you don’t have any experience, NATT will give you the skills and knowledge to achieve greatness! Thank you to all the staff at NATT. You were very helpful and definitely made my future even brighter and the roads even safer!” Cory B.

All of the driver trainers took the time to show us what to do and not to do. I recommend the NATT program to anyone looking to upgrade their license. Keep up the great work!!” Colin, AZ Program 2021
“I would like to say some great feed back about your trainer Adam, he is a great trainer in my opinion and is a great asset to your organization. He was very polite and informative on all of the knowledge leading up to the tests, also how he would draw and describe everything for us and show us visually. I have been on many training courses where I want to fall asleep in class due to the dry material. With Adam it was different I was able to stay awake and want to learn more because of how he teaches and kept our attention. He gets excited which in turn made me excited and want to be there bravo to Adam on keeping me awake and alert on this course.
P.S I passed my written A and my Z thanks to the great training I received.” Jonathan Riberdy, AZ Program 2021
