HAVE A GOOD DRIVING RECORD:
The student must have less than 4 demerit points recorded on his driving record. When you apply for a heavy vehicle license, you are eligible if you have 3 demerit points. 4 points are not eligible. However, demerit points are removed from the driving record 24 months after a person is found guilty. The student's driver's license must not have been suspended or revoked within the past 2 years. The SAAQ will only review suspensions resulting from an accumulation of demerit points or a driving violation of the Criminal Code. HAVE THE NECESSARY DRIVING EXPERIENCE: The candidate must have at least 36 months of driving experience with a Class 5 driver's license (ie a car). The 36 months are an accumulation of the probationary license and the regular driving license. Step 2: Medical Exam and Vision Test In order to proceed to step 3, the SAAQ requires applicants to undergo a vision test which is performed at an SAAQ point of service. Applicants also receive a medical form to be completed by a doctor. You can contact your family doctor for this.
