In order to obtain a Class 1 Driver’s License, you will need to have a full Class 5 (non-GDL) license or higher. You can prepare for the knowledge test by reading the Commercial Driver’s Guide. When you are thoroughly prepared, come into our office to take the computerized knowledge test. The cost is $17.60 and an appointment is not necessary. Please be sure to arrive to our office at least one hour before closing (i.e. arrive by 5 on weekdays and by 4 on Saturday).
In addition, you must obtain a “Q” endorsement before you can take the Class 1 road tests. The first step is to find a driving school which is certified to teach the Air Brake Course. Upon course completion, please come to Registries Plus with your course completion certificate to challenge the Air Brake Knowledge Test. The cost for the Air Brake Knowledge Test is $17.60. After you pass the Air Brake Knowledge Test, see an agent to have the Q endorsement added to your motor vehicle file.
Once you have the Q endorsement, you are eligible to go for the Class 1 Road Test. You can book in our office, call us at 403 207-5158 or book online.
After you pass the Class 1 road test, you are ready to re-class your license. The fee for this service is $22.45.
Please note that you will have to provide a completed Medical Examination for Motor Vehicle Operators form which has been filled out by a physician. This will be required every five years to age 39, four years to age 40, 3 years to age 41, then every two years from age 42-62, and annually thereafter.
