You must have an Endorsement A specified on your licence to operate a vehicle equipped with an air brake system. The endorsement is not required when operating a Class 3 or 5 vehicle licensed as a farm truck or trucks with air over hydraulic brakes.
To qualify for an A Endorsement you must:
- pass a written air brake knowledge test, consult this manual to prepare, and
- complete a practical demonstration on air brake equipment that you provide.
If your licence does not bear the Endorsement A, you may operate a motor vehicle equipped with air brakes as a learner while accompanied by a person whose licence has the Endorsement A, provided your licence permits you to operate that type of vehicle under normal conditions.
Once you are ready to take a driver examination, there are a few options to book your appointment. Visit your nearest motor licence issuer to pre-pay for the test, then call an SGI scheduling clerk to schedule your appointment.
