Driving and Off-Duty Time for Heavy Vehicle Drivers
Please note that in the document on driving and off-duty time, adjustments have been made to the definition of the vehicles exempt from the requirements of the Regulation respecting the hours of driving and rest of heavy vehicle drivers (page 9).
Tired drivers represent a risk for their own safety and that of other road users. The Regulation respecting the hours of driving and rest of heavy vehicle drivers helps limit fatigue at the wheel. The main purpose of this legislation is to reduce the risk of accidents.
Important: Tests taken after December 1, 2008 for licence classes 1, 2 and 3 are based on the regulation concerning driving hours in effect since June 15, 2007.
