Airbrake Endorsement Training

Not Available in Nanaimo Until Further Notice

ICBC Certified Air Brakes Course - Powell River Campus

October 28 & 29, 2022

Prerequisite

A valid BC driver’s license (minimum "N" )

This course is designed to prepare students for the on-highway air brake endorsement (Code 15). It is also required if you want to drive an RV, small truck, or bus with air brakes. The primary purpose of the course is to build, demonstrate, and test a modern air brake system, giving students an interactive experience and clear understanding of how the system works with the audio and visual aid of a fully-functional air brake board. You will learn the benefits and safety measures air brakes provide for heavy vehicles. This course includes eight (8) hours of theory, four (4) hours of practical training, and a pre-trip vehicle inspection.

If you want to pre-read, pick up the "Driving Commercial Vehicles" Manual from any ICBC or local driver's license office and skim chapters 8 and 9.

Please note:

  • Successful participants will be required to pass a written exam, taken at the driver’s licensing office, and qualify on the practical Air Brake Pre-Trip exam, conducted on site on the last day of the course.
  • The ICBC exam must be written within 90 days of course completion, resulting in Air-Brake Endorsement on your current class of license. 
  • The ICBC exam fee is not included in the price of the course.
