One important regulation for commercial drivers is the use of seatbelts at all times while operating the vehicle. Additionally, they must obey posted speed limits and traffic signals and are required to maintain a safe following distance from other vehicles. Commercial drivers are also prohibited from using electronic devices while behind the wheel. In order to obtain a commercial driver’s license in PEI, drivers must demonstrate their knowledge of these traffic rules in a written exam and in a practical driving test. Failure to follow these regulations can result in penalties and even the suspension or revocation of their commercial driver’s license. By following these rules and regulations, commercial drivers contribute to the safety of the PEI roadways for all motorists.

Before learning to drive a Class 1, Class 2, Class 3 or Class 4 vehicle, you must get authorized instruction in the class of vehicle you want to be licensed in. All applicants holding or receiving a Class 1, 2, 3, or 4 driver’s license must provide a satisfactory medical report upon initial application and on a regular cycle. You must take a written commercial and sign test and a vision test. You will also require an air brake endorsement for those vehicles equipped with air brakes.

To successfully prepare, consider utilizing these exams and the official PEI Driver’s Manual to your advantage. The more knowledge you can attain, the better it will be for you once you decide to return to the SNB office to take the air brake licence written knowledge test.
