What is a CMV?

A CMV (commercial motor vehicle) is defined as a truck, tractor, trailer or combination weighing more the 4,500kg, or a vehicle with a designated seating capacity of 10 passengers. The safe operation of CMVs is regulated by the Canadian Federal Goverment or by provincial goverments, who are required to issue National Safety Code numbers to commerical fleet operators and manage the Carrier Safety Rating (CSR) program.

CMVs are required to comply with Canadian Hours of Service rules and the Canadian ELD mandate. Some CMVs that operate across the border in the United States need to comply with US DOT and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations like the US ELD mandate rules.

Do I need a Commerical drivers license to drive a CMV?

A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) is required to drive a commercial vehicle in Canada, such as tractor trailers, semi-trucks, dump trucks, school buses or any vehicle certified to carry over 10 people. Commerical Drivers licenses are issued and regulated by provincial ministries of transport.
