Road safety is everyone’s business and a priority for the SAAQ. Road safety starts with obeying the Highway Safety Code and adopting safe behaviours.
Heavy vehicle drivers, owners and operators, here is everything you need to know to fulfil your obligations and ensure your safety and that of other road users.
In Québec, the transportation of passengers is subject to specific requirements that concern vehicles as well as drivers, owners and operators.
Businesses and self-employed workers can consult, manage or modify their vehicle fleet record online and much more (section in French only).

Here are some rules to follow and things to know before you leave Québec, whether you will be away for a long or short time, and whether you will be on a business trip or on vacation.
Drivers who hold only a passenger vehicle driver’s licence (Class 5 in Québec) and who drive a commercial vehicle in the United States as part of their employment duties are required to meet the medical standards developed by the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators.
You must hold an international driving permit if you are from another country and are staying in Québec for more than 6 months.
You can renew your driver’s licence before you leave for your temporary stay outside Québec, or while you are away.

I want to go a step further and not just provide basic answers but give people all the information they need. It feels great to get off the phone with someone who seems satisfied.
