Class 3 Training

We are the only certified commercial driver training school in Medicine Hat. All road exams are booked through the local registries and administered by Alberta Transportation examiners. Truck rental is available for road exams.

Looking to upgrade your license to a Class 3? One of our instructors will assess your driving experience and skills and customize a training package to suit your needs and ensure the program provides the training and information needed to prepare for the road test.

Training is one-on-one with the instructor. Components of the training include the following:
-pre-trip inspection
-in-cab air
-in-cab safety
-downhill park
-uphill park

Additionally, in-truck instruction will cover all areas to be tested on the government road exam:
-control (equipment, steering, shifting, gears, clutching, brakes/accelerator, signals)
-lane driving/changing/position
-traffic lights/signs

You are able to take your Class 3 exam in either an automatic or a manual transmission. At this time, there is no restriction placed on your license if you choose to test in an automatic transmission.

Additional costs: registry fees, air brakes certification, driver's medical, truck rental for exam

Course Requirements

To obtain a commercial license, you must pass registry-administered knowledge exams and the road exam as well as all training components and air brakes. You must also be a non-probationary driver and be at least 18 years of age.

You must call the office to check availability for training. We encourage you to plan ahead for training as most months fill 2-3 months in advance.
