Default Tandem Grain truck License Req. In AB??

What is needed to run a tandem grain truck with airbrakes legally in Alberta? Can I run it with just my class 5 and airbrake ticket?

No. To run a tandem you need a class three. If its registered as a farm truck you don't need the air endorsement.

I always thought nothing was needed, unless pulling a pup. Then 1 and air brakes.

Farmers don't need air brake endorsement? Interesting...

This is from the Alberta driver's info handbook:

Class 3
For a road test, you must provide a single motor vehicle that has
three or more axles. Three axle recreational vehicles may not be used.
If the vehicle provided for the road test is equipped with air brakes, you
must have either an air brake “Q” endorsement or a course completion
certificate from an approved air brake delivery agent.

Note:
Drivers of single motor vehicles registered as farm vehicles do not

require an air brake “Q” endorsement.

This either proves drivers of farm trucks are smarter than commercial drivers or farm trucks are better maintained

I have always been told you only don't need the air brake endorsement if you own the truck yourself. If you are driving a farm truck for someone else you still need the air brakes.
