    A Cycle 2 reset would require 72 hours, a Cycle 1 reset is 36.

    All of which assumes your company is operating under a federal safety fitness certificate and not a provincial one.

    Here is a link to an Alberta Transportation page of links; in particular, follow the links for:
    1. Current Alberta regulation at: http://www.transportation.alberta.ca/525.htm
    2. New Federal Hours of Service Regulation at: http://laws.justice.gc.ca/en/showtdm/cr/SOR-2005-313

    @not4hire mind if I pick your brain? Been reading the regulations and such but they're a little confusing.

    If I get a truck that's under the 11,794 kg limit and stays strictly in Alberta, would I be required to run a logbook and pretrip? Even if I left the 160 km radius? From what I read and understand, a Safety Fitness Cert would not be needed since I'm not leaving the province.

    If you are under 11,794 and Alberta only:


    1. You need a commercial registration, but not a Safety Fitness Certificate:

    Safety Fitness Certificates that include Operating Status are required for commercial carriers operating in Alberta.
    • solely within Alberta registered for a weight of 11,794 kg or greater
    - Commercial carrier operating status


    2. You are exempt from Alberta HOS Regulations:

    Application

    2(1) This Regulation applies to a carrier with respect to the operation of the following vehicles:
    (a) a bus;
    (b) in the case of a vehicle other than a bus, a vehicle that is registered under the Act for a gross weight of 11 794 or more kilograms.
    (2) This Regulation applies to a driver with respect to the operation of the following vehicles:
    (a) a bus;
    (b) in the case of a vehicle other than a bus, a vehicle that is registered under the Act for a gross weight of 11 794 or more kilograms.

    Awesome. Thank you. That's what I thought but government speak is sometimes hard to comprehend.
