Welcome to the Air Brake Page!
To operate vehicles equipped with air brakes on a highway (other than a vehicle defined as a construction vehicle), you must have a B.C. driver's licence with an air brake endorsement (code 15). An air brake endorsement is also required to operate most vehicles equipped with air-over-hydraulic brakes. Endorsement code 15 is shown in the "restrictions" section of a driver's licence.
Our comprehensive course is specifically designed to cover all the principles and components of air brakes, as well as provide practical training on how to operate them properly. Our experienced instructors have years of industry experience and are committed to providing quality instruction in a safe and supportive environment. They'll guide you through every aspect of air brake operation, to ensure that you have the knowledge and skills necessary to pass your ICBC knowledge test and become a confident and competent when operating air brake vehicles.
It's essential to obtain an air brake endorsement as it ensures that drivers are properly trained in the operation of vehicles with air brakes. Moreover, it's important for safety and legal reasons. To obtain an air brake endorsement, you must successfully complete both a written and practical test to demonstrate your knowledge of air brake systems.
