Farm Restricted Class 1

Effective April 1, 2024, eligible farmers and their family members will have the option to apply for a farm-restricted Class 1 driver’s licence.


 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. The driver will not be required to complete pre-licensing training.

The driver must meet all other requirements of a Class 1 driver’s licence, including the Air Brake (Q) endorsement. Farm-restricted Class 1 drivers may also be subject to licence code restriction “N” which means the holder may not operate vehicles or combinations of vehicles which require a Class 2 or 4 driver’s licence unless that person has completed the required knowledge and road tests as well as completed any other conditions of a Class 2 or 4 driver’s licence.

You are able to take your Class 1 exam in either an automatic or a manual 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.
