Welcome to Trucks-R-Us.ca. This is the website of Sylvie and Bill Nickerson. We are CVOR Consultants who help truck and bus operators to properly maintain their CVOR.
I am a former Transportation Enforcement Officer with the Ministry of Transportation (1991-2000). I am also a licensed paralegal with the Ontario Law Society. I have been working as a CVOR consultant with truck and bus companies since 2001.
I believe I can be an asset to truck and bus drivers, owners and/or operators by using the knowledge, experience and training I have gained.
I will be able to assist you in the following areas if you have been charged, or if you have any questions or concerns:
- Highway Traffic Act and Regulations
- vehicle registration
- driver’s licence
- vehicle equipment
- hours of work (log book)
- trip inspection reports
- CVOR certificate
- permits (oversize/overweight, trip, temporary vehicle registration)
- load security and covering of loads
- weight, length and height of vehicles and loads
- Dangerous Goods Transportation Act
- Fuel Tax Act
- Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act
- Public Vehicles Act
I have a background in computer programing and corporate training. I assist Sylvie in the technical side of things, running the web site, developing spreadsheets and other tools to help the business.
In 2006, I took over the development of the training we offer, and eventually became the primary trainer as well. I am currently working towards having our training delivered as self-paced online courses as well as live.
Working with Sylvie, I began to get more involved in the audit preparation as well as she was becoming quite busy with the court side of the business.
