All commercial driver's licence classes - Class 1, 2, 3 or 4 or endorsements 1, 2, 3, 4, G or S – require that you submit a Commercial Driver's Licence Medical Report form (pdf, 160 kb) before booking your written and road tests.
Our Medical Review Unit (MRU) will review your medical report to ensure you meet the medical standards for a commercial licence. Drivers will be notified once their medical has been reviewed.
Once you have a commercial licence, you must provide periodic medical reports to maintain your commercial driving privileges.
Class 5 licence requirements and commercial 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, where the trailer weight and its contents 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.
Driver's licence class reduction
If you do not want to submit a medical to maintain your commercial driving privileges, you can voluntarily reduce your commercial licence to a Class 5 licence by requesting a Driver's licence class reduction.
