We recognize that farmers have their own business needs. We provide Class F farm plates for power units, trucks and trailers, operating guidelines for farm-plated vehicles and equipment, and permits for use outside those guidelines.
Class 5 licence requirements and farm vehicles
A Class 5 driver's licence does not require a medical exam and is not considered a commercial driver's licence but permits you to operate a single 2-axle vehicle regardless of its Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) or any combination of a 2-axle vehicle and trailer that does not exceed 4,600 kg.
United States law requires that commercial drivers have a medical examiner’s certificate.
For detailed information on your Class 5 licence and driving in the U.S. with a commercial vehicle or vehicle-trailer combination, visit the Class 5 licence requirements and commercial vehicles page.
