I too went to see Nick at Modern Driver Training. I successfully obtained my "C" (Bus Driver) license 4 years ago along with my "Z" (air) endorsement: I too fondly remember that GO bus. My thinking was that if I got stopped in Sandy Rock Wyoming or something that "bus driver", printed right on my license, would help clarify? I also wanted to have someone who was not a relative or dependant on keeping me in a good frame of mind sitting behind / beside me critiquing my driving skilss, or lack thereof. I have recommended Nick to many People since and, to their credit, Sicard Motor homes has his posters prominently displayed in their offices and showroom here. Also, they do inform their customers of the appropriate licensing required at the time of purchase. Not only did I become more knowledgable but I also gained confidence during the driving / instruction part of the course. I had been driving class A's for about 5 years at that point but still learned lots and increased my sense of control over the rig and my surroundings. Way to go folks.

Hi, myself and a friend are just embarking on our quest for DZ licenses. It is amazing how many different opinions on regs are out there. I have now read enough to believe that I need a DZ license for the bus I plan to get and my buddy is of the same opinion. I just completed a 12 hr course and passed the written Z and will go back in a week or so when the others are thru the D portion, to do the practical.I'm trying to wing it on my own with a little help from the internet. I'm also trying to figure out what the easiest vehicle I could use for the D road test might be. I've really enjoyed your thread and am looking forward to continuing on this site.

I would suggest if you are using a motorhome for your test, to take it down to the ministry of transportation and ask if it meets the class D criteria. You dont want to show up for your test and be turned away because you dont have a Class D vehicle.

To pass D you need any vehicle that weighs at least 11000 Kilograms. If you are not passing the Z extension simultaneously, you do not need a vehicle with air brakes.

I believe that Budget or one of the rental companies has trucks that might work for both. Check with the testing centers but I believe they told me that the vehicle only has to have a capacity beyond 12000kg but it doesn't actually have to weight more than when empty (that way you can rent / drive with a G).

It is 11000 Kilograms michelb. Their website states you must bring a vehicle of the appropriate class... Not sure if just having the capacity to carry 11000 kg would work or if it has to be loaded to 11000kg min. I would call the Ministry on that one. If your vehicle is not adequate you must re-book (pay a little more again)

DanielB is correct. I thought I had been told it could be less but I just found a response from DriveTest saying this about the vehicle

Quote:
The vehicle requirement for a D road test is any truck or motor vehicle combination exceeding 11,000 kg provided the towed vehicle is not over 4,600 kg.
(i.e. you need to take the test in a vehicle that requires a D license)
