                                                 Overview

        The Carrier Services Branch of Alberta Transportation has prepared this guide to
        assist and ensure that commercial carriers operate safely and are compliant with the
        regulations that govern highway use. The Province of Alberta, other Canadian
        jurisdictions, the Government of Canada, and the Transportation Industry developed
        the National Safety Code (NSC) to help reduce the number and severity of collisions.
        Each jurisdiction has used the NSC standards as guides in drafting their own
        transportation safety legislation. This approach promotes uniformity across Canada
        and helps to ensure that the transportation industry remains as viable and sustainable
        as possible.

        Provincial (operates solely in Alberta) and Federal (operates in and outside of Alberta)
        National Safety Code legislation applies to Alberta carriers who have commercial
        vehicles registered that are:
               Trucks, tractors or trailers or a combination of these vehicles that are registered
                to Provincially regulated motor carriers and have a registered gross weight of
                11,794 kilograms or more;
               Buses with a manufactured seating capacity of 11 persons or more, including
                the driver (provincially and federally regulated); and
               Trucks, tractors or trailers, or a combination of these vehicles that are registered
                to federally regulated motor carriers and have a registered gross weight greater
                than 4,500 kilograms.


        Provincial and Federal carriers must meet different standards. It is important for
        carriers to understand the differences prior to deciding if they wish to operate outside
        of Alberta. For more information visit our Operating Status web page located at
        www.transportation.alberta.ca/661.htm.

        The guide contains several modules, each dealing with a specific topic. To get a
        complete picture of compliance requirements, you should obtain the complete guide. If
        you intend to use certain parts of this guide only, for example Module 1, “Getting
        Started”, it is recommended that you also obtain the modules “Introduction” and
        “Appendices”.

        This is a guide only and is not meant to be a substitute for the actual legislation.

                            Vehicle Registration Requirements

        In Alberta, a carrier may register their vehicles (Power Units) with one of three classes
        of commercial plates. Each class of plate provides for different types of operations. It
        is crucial that carriers register their vehicles appropriately. Failure to do so may result
        in the carrier being charged with an offence and/or having their vehicle detained until
        proper registration is obtained.


        The following is a summary of what operations are authorized under each class of
        plate. Legislation is contained under Sections 76, 77 and 78 of the Operator Licensing
        and Vehicle Control Regulation, AR 320/2002.


        Class 1 Plates: Commercial vehicles used provincially, federally and internationally to
        transport: owner’s own goods; other person’s goods for compensation; and some
        passenger transportation services including school bus, charter bus, and taxi
        operations. Additional licensing may be required if the carrier wishes to operate outside
        of Alberta.


        Class 2 Plates: Class two plates were designed to authorize special operations and,
        in some cases, restrict the operator to a defined radius of operation, the amount of
        goods transported, or a specialized service. Some authorized operations include:
        transporting goods within a 10 kilometre radius of the registered address; farming;
        private buses; and driver training school services provided no goods are transported.
        For a full list of authorized services using this registration class, consult the legislation.


        Class 3 Plates: Commercial vehicles transporting goods owned by the owner of the
        vehicle or school buses registered to government, municipality, hospitals, school
        boards, First Nations bands. A class 3 plate may NOT be used to transport other
        persons’ goods for compensation.

        Vehicles registered in Alberta and operated outside the province require prorate
        (vehicle registration sharing) or a permit. For more information on prorate registration,
        contact Prorate Services at 403-297-2920.


        The following table summarizes the requirements for vehicle registration, Safety
        Fitness Certificates and Operating Authority Certificates for the more common types of
        vehicles and their uses.

        Passenger Hazard Insurance for Buses
        Insurance for buses must address public liability and property damage as well as injury
        and death of passengers. Legislative requirements are listed in Section 26 of
        AR 314/2002. Some guidelines are:
               $400,000.00 (minimum) for bodily injury or death of any one person as a result
                of any single collision;
               $1 million for each public service passenger vehicle with a seating capacity of
                10 or fewer persons, including the driver (for bodily injury or death of 2 or more
                persons);
               $2 million for each public service passenger vehicle with a seating capacity of
                11 persons or more, including the driver (for bodily injury or death of 2 or more
                persons).
               If a bus carrier also offers an express shipment service, then they must also
                have cargo insurance of at least $500.00 for each piece of cargo.
        You should contact your insurance provider to ensure that you meet all of the
        necessary insurance requirements.
