The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) will be holding engagement sessions to gather input for possible mandatory entry-level training for new Class 1 and Class 2 drivers.

Currently, the GNWT does not have regulated training requirements for Class 1 or 2 licences.

Mandatory training could result in safer, more highly skilled drivers working in the truck and bus industries.

Four engagement sessions will be held to gather feedback:

  • Inuvik: January 10 at 7:00 p.m. at the Midnight Sun Complex (Sundog Room)
  • Yellowknife: January 14 at 7:00 p.m. at Chateau Nova Hotel (Lynx Room)
  • Fort Simpson: January 17 at 7:00 p.m. at the Community Hall
  • Hay River: January 23 at 7:00 p.m. at the Ptarmigan Inn (Conference Room)

Your feedback will help inform possible new requirements.

If you’re unable to attend the engagement sessions, you can also send your input to
