E-Bulletin Changes to Entry Level Training for Class 1 Drivers coming to Alberta

March 28/2024

New learning pathway for Class 1 drivers

On March 27, 2024 Transportation and Economic Corridors announced upcoming changes to training requirements for Class 1 drivers in Alberta. 

Until these changes are implemented, drivers will still be required to complete existing Class 1 driver training requirements to obtain a Class 1 driver’s license unless they qualify for an exemption.

In addition, effective April 1, 2024, eligible farmers and their immediate family members will have the option to apply for a farm-restricted Class 1 driver’s license. Upon successful completion of a Class 1 knowledge and road test, vision-screening, and submission of a driver’s medical assessment, the driver will be issued a farm-restricted Class 1 driver’s licence with condition code “P”, indicating they must comply with farmer restrictions.
