CALGARY, Alta. — The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) is hosting a session on the rules regarding longer combination vehicles, or Rocky Mountain Doubles.
The session has been prompted by changing rules regarding LCV use in Alberta, which have involved different licensing requirements for drivers and more responsibilities for fleets.
More emphasis has been placed on fleets to prove their drivers are capable of running the trucks safely and effectively. Companies must now test their drivers before issuing a card allowing the driver to pilot longer combination vehicles.
In Alberta, the AMTA is the only authority allowed to hold train-the-trainer courses for new long combination vehicle instructors. The course costs $195 for members, and $250 for non-members and it will be held in both Calgary and Edmonton.
The Edmonton course will take place June 15, while the Calgary course will be held Sept. 13. Both sessions will last an entire day.
