I'm not sure , Unless you renew it in AB then transfer over in the new province .
But don't you have one year to renew then have to take the test again. Its more than a year since you went home isn't it ?

send a email of to these people

Renew then transfer, that's what I thought, but I'll ring the licensing people.

Yes, we've been back in the UK more than a year, but my Canadian Class 1 runs out this month, and I was told I have FOUR years in which to renew it without a re-test, but obviously with a medical.

I have a mate who has just sold up his 6 truck quarry fleet, flush with ready cash and has always thought about heading off to Canada.
He has no interest in multiple nights away(young family) and Westcan seem like a good place for him to start.

Will they just not listen that a 600hp+ truck (driven properly) will give them far better fuel returns
?
Closer to 500hp than 400hp !!! I shall pass on your comments to the powers that be at Westcan coz obviously you know waaaaaay more about their buissiness than they do Your countless years of experiance in Canada, your endless knowledge of North American transport leaves us all in total awe of your wisdom... Ooops I forgot you just spent a few months cutting the grass on a John Deere and ran a fleet of 1 truck doing gravel runs in Paddy Land

So speaketh Canada's biggest loser...The forums are dead coz the likes of you and BT who keep harping on about how " Bad" H&R Trans are or how bad North American trucking is. I just respond to the crap that you and BT spout off, if either of you can post something factual then i will respond in like, but if your crap continues so will mine
