Class 4 licence

Definition of “For hire”

A Class 4 licence is required for a driver who
is operating a vehicle under the condition
for hire, as defined below from the Operator
Licensing and Vehicle Control Regulation.

For hire with respect to a vehicle,
means that the vehicle owner or operator,
or the operator’s employer, is being paid
for the service that the vehicle is being
used to provide, but for the purposes
of sections 23 (Class 3 licence) and 25
(Class 5 licence), a motor vehicle is not
for hire when the operator drives a private
passenger vehicle for the transportation of
passengers on an incidental or occasional
basis and receives compensation in
respect of the transportation of those
passengers only in one or more of the
following forms:
1 as payment for the kilometres travelled
   at a rate not exceeding the limit of taxexempt
   allowance paid by employers
   to employees as prescribed in section
   7306 of the Income Tax Regulations of
   Canada (CRC chapter 945);
2 as straight reimbursement for out-ofpocket
   expenses directly related to
   the transportation, including, without
   limitation, gas, parking, gate passes
   and tolls;
3 in a case where the operator is party to
   an agreement to provide transportation
   to only the operator’s family members,
   members of the operator’s household
   or persons for whom the operator is a
   legal guardian, as compensation only to
   provide transportation to those persons.
