Limited road tests available for those in the health and agriculture sectors

Starting Monday SGI will once again be offering road tests for those in the health and agriculture sectors.

SGI has developed a modified procedure to offer road tests to drivers seeking a Class 5, 4, or 2 licence for these two sectors.

Class 5 licences entitle drivers to operate “regular” private vehicles. Class 4 licences permit the holder to operate ambulances (as well as taxis, limos, ridesharing vehicles, and buses that seat 24 or fewer passengers).

Class 2 licences allow a driver to operate buses that seat more than 24 passengers.

Initially there will be a maximum of 140 road tests per week available across the province, divided among testing centres in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Swift Current, North Battleford and Yorkton.

SGI says it will contact people outside of those sectors to re-schedule appointments that were cancelled when the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions took effect.
