4500kg trailers require class 3 license

All of us in the industry haul either dump trailers or equipment trailers/floats around.  If the registered mass of the trailer exceeds 4500 kgs you need to have a class 3 license.  Comm. Vehicle Enforcement  pulled one of my guys over earlier this month and I have talked to another guy who hauls firewood on a dump trailer and he tells me, he has been pulled over three times this year.  The drivers handbook from the gov’t does say the rule.  Maybe people should be made aware of this so they are not as surprised as I was.
