What you will NEED:link


G class license or higher.link

This is a requirement from the Ministry of Transportation's Highway Traffic Act. G1 or G2 applicants cannot upgrade to any commercial drivers license until they obtain their full G class license. B class, C class and D class drivers can apply any time.

No DUI (Driving Under the Influence) convictions in last 10 years.link

If you have received a pardon for your conviction, you are eligible to obtain a A-Z License. Technically, even people with convictions can obtain their license, but it will be very difficult for them to find work in the industry as drinking and driving is a very serious offense and taboo in the transport industry. Note that Driving while under the influence of cannabis is the same legally as drunk driving.

Over 18 years old (Over 25 years old preferred).link

Anyone over 18 is able to obtain their license, but due to Insurance Companies charging very large premiums to insure individuals under 25, it will make many employers seek older applicants. Note: This applies mostly to A-Z applicants, B,C and D-Z licensees don't seem to run into this issue as often.

Be able to pass a M.T.O. (Ministry of Transport) Medical Test.link

This is a basic test to ensure you are healthy enough to become a commercial vehicle driver. This test can be conducted by any doctor practicing in the province of Ontario. Because it is not covered under O.H.I.P., most doctors charge fees for these exams. An average cost is $60-$80 for this examination.

Note: Physicians and Optometrists are required by law to report any conditions that may impair your driving ability physically or mentally so be aware that you may need to consult a specialist to obtain permission to obtain your drivers license.

What HELPS:link

Having a clean drivers abstract or driving record.link

As a new recruit, this is your best proof of how good/safe a driver you are. One or two minor tickets aren't huge problems, but the cleaner your driving record the easier it will be for you to be employed/the better transport company you can get in to.

Having a clean criminal record.link

Because trucks cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the cargo they carry runs into the millions, a clean criminal record will make you eligible for all types of transport work.

Having previous experience with large trucks.link

Ever worked on a construction site driving heavy equipment? Ever worked as a mechanic or apprentice in a truck shop? Ever shunted trailers in a yard, all this can come in handy when learning for your A-Z license.

Being able to drive a manual transmission.link

This helps because a large percentage of the A-Z vehicles out in the field are equipped with manual transmissions, meaning this is a job critical skill. Manual transmission drivers of automobiles already possess the co-ordination (2 foot driving vs 1 foot driving) required to graduate to non-synchronized transmissions that are on most rigs.
