Who Must Complete the Approved Air Brake Course?

Air brakes generate air pressure through a compressor, distributing it to the vehicle's brakes via hoses, reservoirs, and control valves. To legally operate air brake-equipped vehicles in Alberta, drivers in classes 1 through 5 must complete an approved air brake course to obtain the Q endorsement on their licence.


In Alberta, drivers operating single-motor farm vehicles are exempt from air brake endorsements. However, those driving farm vehicle combinations requiring a Class 1 licence must obtain the endorsement. 


Completing an approved air brake course and passing the written test at a registry office earns drivers the Q endorsement.


Our comprehensive air brake course covers theoretical knowledge and practical skills, including classroom sessions, practical training, and tests. Upon completion, drivers can obtain the Q endorsement by passing the knowledge test at a registry office.
