Default Question for Brits trucking in Manitoba

Is someone able to clarify the exact process for a time served Brit driver to obtain a Manitoba Class 1S licence. Pretty please

Very up to speed with the LMIA/ TWP process. just need info on getting MB Class 1S. Thanks.

Have heard from some, that no road test required......seems odd so any clarification welcome.

so the oh got offered the job at Gladstone then?
and surely they have offered to provide the training for your oh?
if you Google Manitoba class 1 test you will find the answers your looking for and why would you think anybody would give a license to drive an arctic on the road without a road test although I've seen plenty of car drivers that drive like they've never ever ever had a road test

You're rather presumptious aint ya!
Firstly, I AM the OH!
Secondly, who said anything about a job offer? What job??
Thirdly, I know how to use Google - thank you.
Fourthly, why exactly would I think anybody would give a license to drive an artic without a road test? I wouldn't, hence my question!

Now, unless you have anything helpful and/ or constructive to add, may I politely suggest you go forth and quadruple!

Forgive me if I'm wrong. In fact, don't bother because I know I'm not, but isn't the purpose of a discussion forum to share experiences, give help, get help and chat about things in common? Since when did Google become a replacement for this?

Yes, it was. We're not stupid, it was a pretty blatant bump.

Calling mods names isn't big or clever either, if you don't like mods actually ensuring you stick to the site rules like everybody else, them nobody is forcing you to use the forum.......

I know Fluffy hasn't been posting at his best but I'll give this out as I think it may be of interest to others.

A driver will have to wait 2 weeks after he has done his written exam before he can take his driving test in Manitoba.

The latest newcomer to the House of Drivers found this out only when he had done his writtens. It was one of many hurdles the guy had to clamber over. But he has finally got it all done and is out on the road.

You can take lessons during those two weeks, but how long do you need to learn a test route. I think most drivers would hope to get things done within a week.

OK as ever i always say ive been here a while now so may have changed !

If your waiting two weeks that means you surrendered your UK license for a canadian class 5 or at least it use to mean that ?
I REFUSED to surrender mine UNTIL i had my class 1 MB license, Maybe they insist now that you do ????
By holding onto my UK drivers the 14 day wait rule is waived because your NOT a Canadian driver lol, it took me 6 days to get my class 1 CDL in MB, Can anyone say if the rules have changed ????
Most pass the first time but if you don't and you haven't surrendered your UK lIcense in MB you can have at er again the next day lol
They gave me my class 6 too from the UK but you have to debate that a little too.
