Q&A - Commercial Vehicles Using Out of Province Licence Plates

Q&A ImageI see more and more Alberta companies having Alberta plates on their equipment and having their terminals in BC. These companies work and train out of the BC terminals. Their equipment runs either all BC or are pro-rated to run BC/Alberta.

Is this legal and how do they do it?



Section 10 of the Commercial Transport Act is the legislation that permits reciprocity between provinces and states for commercial vehicle licensing.

It's a fair amount of reading, but the Commercial Transport Procedures Manual explains how this works in detail.
