    Well, I gave the recruiter a call. Didn't learn anything that I hadn't learned either here or on their website. I did find out that they pay $150 just to go into Canada. I have to get a abstract of my license to see when the last ticket was. It was just a disobeying a road sign, but I don't remember the date. While I'm at the DMV I'll get my license upgraded to the enhanced license, that way I can use that and not my passport, or have it as a back up.
    I'll have to pull the trigger before February, that's when my plate runs out with FEdex and I don't want to pay another $1700 for something that I might only use for a few months. If my license isn't clean enough, then I guess I'll have to pay it, stay and wait until it is good. I'll do all that next week. For now I'm going to enjoy these few days off. I've been running 6 days a week for the last 6 weeks and now it's finally done!!

    You also have to get your truck turned down to 64 mph to go into Canada and they like USA trucks to check it. Usually a warning the first time but fines in Canada are high like 2K for bad brakes.

    Anyone else confirm the 64 for canada? That would be a deal-breaker. I thought about that, but forgot to ask.

    Ontario and Quebec at 100 KPH which comes out to around 62 mph. Truck can be set at no faster than 65 MPH. Company I use to drive for got caught and I was told it was a $500.00 fine to the driver and to the company.

    It is 105 km/h (65 MPH).

    Mandatory Truck Speed Limiters
    A speed limiter is an electronic device that is installed in heavy trucks, and caps the speed at a maximum of 105 km/h. Most large trucks driven in Ontario are required to use speed limiters.

    Studies conducted by the federal government, through Transport Canada, have demonstrated the environmental, safety and cost-saving benefits of speed limiters. Ontario and Québec worked together to jointly launch and implement speed-limiter regulations.

    Trucks That Require Speed Limiters
    If a commercial motor vehicle was built after December 31, 1994, with a manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight rating of 11,794 kilograms or more, and is equipped with an electronic control module, then the vehicle is subject to being speed limited. Exemptions to these apply only to a limited number of vehicle types such as ambulances or fire trucks.

    Legislation
    Ontario passed legislation and supporting regulations to mandate the use of speed limiters on commercial vehicles in 2008. Links to the legislation and regulations can be found below:

    Enforcement
    Police and MTO enforcement officers use both existing traffic-control techniques and portable electronic testing units to verify the activation of a vehicle speed limiter at a maximum of 105 km/h.

    The use of portable electronic testing units provides access to the vehicle engine data, and confirms if the limiter has been activated at a speed of 105 km/h or less. It is necessary for officers to plug into a data port located within the cab of the truck. Failure to assist with or allow the inspection will result in charges.
