The Spanish Council of Ministers has approved lowering the legal age for driving a truck. He was therefore between 21 and 18 years old. The measure will enter into force in the country on 2 January. The Owner Operator Independent Driver Association (OOIDA) does not share the same enthusiasm for the bill. She calls it “irresponsible” to put such young drivers behind the wheel of long-haul trucks just to fill an economic void, particularly for safety reasons and concerns about the training of young truck drivers. Thanks to this approval, obtained by the Ministry of Economic Development during the time of Liberal Sam Hamad, from 2011 to 2014, 40 young truck drivers aged 17 and 18 will participate in a pilot project of the SAAQ, the enriched program for driving a heavy vehicle. These young people regularly receive 615 hours of training at one of the Ministry of Education`s two public schools and are sponsored by a company. Every young driver is supervised and trained to be a real truck driver before the legal age to have a heavy vehicle driver`s license, the Class 1 driver`s license. A semi-trailer alone costs about $100,000, regardless of the type of trailer. Hence the interest of training centers to retain their students.
In Charlesbourg, the dropout rate is about 4%, explains André Carrier, deputy director. Note that to get C approval, you will of course need to undergo testing and training. The training is therefore provided by driving schools, which must be specialized in heavy vehicles, that is to say trucks, in order to facilitate things. This training takes place in two stages. You will therefore be subjected to a non-circulation test, in which you will be asked not only oral but also written questions. During the second phase, you will need to drive in the middle of traffic to get your C driver`s license. It usually takes between one and two months for this training, depending also on your starting level. If you do not have a professional diploma related to road transport, you must pass the FIMO after receiving your C licence. (Québec) Young people aged 17 or 18 will soon be allowed to drive heavy vehicles on Quebec roads. A pilot project of the Société de l`assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) is currently underway. A person aged at least 18 years holding a C1E driving licence may drive a heavy goods vehicle with a total weight between 3.5 t and 7.5 t equipped with a trailer of more than 750 kg. This C1E license allows you to drive a car that pulls a trailer when the GVWR is greater than 3500 kg.
Another sub-category modality is assigned to freight and tourist wagons. The stated objective is to gradually increase access to the profession according to their power, weight and the use they expect. Driver age criteria and experience are evolving. Truck driving licences and so-called passenger driving licences now have new classes, as required by a European directive. New licence holders have a European-type driving licence to limit the falsification of the document. If the©result is favourable, you can©©download your Driver`s Licence Examination Certificate (CPEF). This certificate, accompanied by an identity document©, serves as a© driver`s license for 4 months from the day of the exam. The Royal Decree thus reforms the General Regulation on Drivers in order to incorporate Directive (EU) 2018/645 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 April 2018 on the initial qualification and continuous training of drivers of vehicles intended for the carriage of goods and passengers by road and Directive 2006/126/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 December on driving licences. We note that it is not only in Canada that a minimum training threshold for beginners is sought.

The industry has lobbied the government on recruitment issues. The main problem with the current law, according to truck lobbies, is that it is difficult to recruit young people when they graduate from high school. The various freight forwarders have called for a new law to lower the minimum age for obtaining a Class 1 driving licence, which allows the driving of a heavy vehicle; Instead, they got a four-year ministerial decree. A person who wishes to drive a road freight vehicle > 3.5 t or a passenger vehicle > 9 seats is required to carry out a medical examination beforehand. A person exercising the profession of driver must be vigilant in order to respect the mandatory periodicity. The appointment for the medical examination is made at the initiative of the driver. They make it possible to establish the physical, cognitive and sensory skills necessary for the activity of professional behaviour. The current price is 36 euros. This sum is “advanced” by the employee, but remains the responsibility of the employer. Article 11bis of the National Collective Agreement for Road Transport provides that the time devoted to such visits must be devoted to working time and therefore gives entitlement to remuneration.
To obtain a Class 1 licence, a professional class, in Quebec, you must first purchase a regular Class 5 licence. Current regulations allow a young American to drive a truck from the age of 18, but only within the limits of a particular state. To perform interstate transportation, federal law requires truckers to be 21 years of age or older. It remains to be seen whether such a measure could actually materialize beyond the intentions. Would insurers agree to cover a risk that they might consider higher? Would it be worth it for U.S. fleets, which may have to absorb the increase in insurance premiums and invest heavily in training? There is no shortage of jobs for all those who want to work in the freight transport sector.
